Alan Dershowitz — BDS: The Attempt to Strangle Israel [Darleen Click]

There isn’t a lot of area where liberal Alan Dershowitz and I agree; however, this video addressing the anti-semitic BDS Movement is spot-on and timely.

  1. Alan loves Ted Cruz, too. Clearly, he is a mole.

  2. leigh

    Could be that Alan is one of those vanishing liberals who used to be in the now-illiberal Democrat Party

  3. Though I am not personally troubled at all by the appellation Democrat Party (in fact so far as I may choose, I rather prefer it), we have just recently been admonished in another thread to proclaim said political group an Ic Party — which indeed, altering the spelling only slightly for mnemonic purposes, Ick it can be. The Icks demand it in all propriety. So Ick it is, when not simply Democrat.

  4. Darleen, he’s an old school liberal. One who has ethics and loves our country.

    He may be the only one left.

  5. That whole practice of calling it the Democrat Party instead of the Democratic Party was started by some fool in the GOP because they didn’t want the Dems to be seen as THE Party of Democracy.

    I refuse to do it because they are believers in Democracy – which The Founding Fathers abhorred.

    So, let the rat bastards have the term – it’s one of the few they use which is truthful.

    On the other hand, refuse to use the term ‘Republican’ to describe the Quisling Party because to do so is to lie.

    We are the actual republicans.

  6. On the contrary, Bob, the party that traces its roots to Andrew Jackson now does all it can to thwart the will of the people when the people don’t favor the party.

    It is no more a democratic party than social justice has any relation to justice.

  7. Democracy is two wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for dinner. Freedom is a well-armed sheep contesting the outcome.

  8. it would be thoughtful if Freedom were to bring some mint jelly

  9. – There seems to be a golf between the government and the American people these days.

    (He’s fleeing to Hawaii even sooner than I thought he would.)

  10. One of the signal features of all Democracies is that the leaders of the mob always despise the mob.

  11. There seems to be a golf between the government and the American people these days.

    I see what you did there.

  12. So just to note: The temporary “humanitarian” 5-hour ceasefire ended a short time ago and 40+ new rockets (now 50+ since I began writing) have been fired from Gaza into Israel. Hamas seems intent on its own destruction, a queer proposition easily unraveled to reveal the truth that Hamas is intent on the deaths of many nominally (in possible instances where not actually) innocent Arab women and children living in Gaza (City, most likely), together with a subsequent international press propaganda campaign against Israel in concert with those sufficiently anti-Semitic national governments choosing to participate in smearing the Jew.

    This, all designed to garner international pressure on Israel to leave off prosecuting its righteous war to put an end to Hamas’ and other terror Arab rocketing of Israel from Gaza, with the aim to leave Hamas intact and in control of both the population of Gaza as well as its rocketry stores and rocketry production facilities, so that the bombardment may resume in future whenever Hamas so desires.

    Hamas very much wants a ground war, now.

    Too, very few Israelis have died at Hamas’ hands to date — to Hamas’ humiliation among the other Arabs — such that the most promising opportunity Hamas will have to kill Israelis will be in direct military engagement, for in that event, Israelis soldiers will be subject to conventional ambush as well as IED attacks, Hamas’ best bet for killing.

    We may harbor some hope that Israel has other, more devious plans of approach to the problem, a problem of which the Israeli command is fully aware. But what plans? Who knows?

  13. 20 Hamas rockets found in UNRWA school building, UNRWA tut-tuts, insists rockets be removed, then goes back to work supporting the genocidists. That’s your UN, people. Hard at work exterminating the Jew.

  14. So it appears now the Israelis have jumped off on the Hamas’ desired ground war.

  15. And FoxNews finds an unending stream of leftist commentators to explicate the situation. Bravo, thou establican water carriers.

  16. Scummy idiots are all over sdferr.

  17. The only fully decent national politician I’ve seen speak on the Israelis’ actual situation — outside a handful of Israeli politicians who are not themselves uniformly steadfast and honest on the subject — is Stephen Harper of Canada. No others, who all hedge whatever the say with manifest falsehoods.

  18. The IDF initiated the ground offensive at 10:38 p.m. by sending large numbers of forces to destroy terrorist tunnels.

    Infantry, Armored Corps, Engineering Corps, artillery and intelligence units are taking over various areas in Gaza, and are all working with one another and the air force. They are operating in central, and southern Gaza, where Hamas has dug an extensive terrorist tunnel network. The IDF’s Southern Command is overseeing the ground offensive.
    At the same time, the air force is continuing with air strikes against Hamas and Islamic Jihad around Gaza.

    Army in the center and south and air force in the north it seems.

  19. Oops, link.

  20. Don’t bunch up! Keep your spacing!

  21. CNN has no doubt which side it stands on.

  22. The Israeli and Egyptian governments agree that Egypt — which has stepped forward to mediate talks between Israel and Hamas with a view to the conduct of some to be determined negotiated end (cessation) of the Israeli-Gaza conflict — should be the chief mediator.

    Hamas, whose high official Khaled Mashaal now resides in Qatar, having been kicked out of Syria, desires Qatar as chief mediator. Y’know, Qatar which funds jihadists all over the Mideast and Northern Africa?

    John Kerry agrees with Hamas, as well as does now former ClownDisasterSecOState Clinton, that Qatar is the nation for the job.


    Jihadists lineup over here and you Jew-lovers over there. Step quick now, or the opportunities may vanish in cannon-fire.
