Sunday in Manhattan there was a Jerusalem Post Policy conference. There was a panel debating the topic of Two States for Two People. Harvard Law Professor was in top form demonstrating why he has about reached his limit. Read the Jerusalem Post report ,”Dershowitz presents plan to restart peace talks”, about a truculent audience rejecting his views and according to fellow panelist and senior JP columnist Caroline Glick saying:
Following laughter from the audience, Dershowitz lashed out, saying that “It’s so easy to laugh but I have to tell you the audience today is not helpful in resolving complex and serious issues,” which lead to loud jeers and boos.
The bestselling author was booed loudly after telling audience members that they are “part of the problem” for laughing at his new framework for negotiations.
“You’re proving my point,? Dershowitz hit back, adding, “You are part of the problem, not the solution.”
The Post’s Senior Contributing Editor Caroline Glick, who was also on the panel, told the audience that she “Need[ed] to catch my breath for a second,” after Dershowitz’s comments. “It’s very nice to come in here and smack down your audience,” she intoned.
Dershowitz, she told the audience, is “nasty to those who disagree” with him.
“If you want to say that people who devote their lives to defending the Jewish state are illegitimate voices then why should I care what you have to say,” she asked Dershowitz.
Towards the end of the debate, Dershowitz alleged that those who booed him and former prime minister Ehud Olmert were not representative of American or Israeli Jewry and are “foolish.” He said he would defend his “right to tell you what I think of you and it’s not much.”
