delusions undone

I think it’s been close to four years since I’ve written anything about that world renowned genius Alan Dershowitz. I single him out but simply because he is a well known figure who does not shy away from making his positions known and therefore serves  as a convenient exemplar of the dumbness of the American Jewish liberal political establishment. Let’s revisit a few lines of Professor Dershowitz’s ringing op-ed endorsement of President Hussein y’mach shemo:

“The case for Barack Obama also includes his approach to foreign policy, which has improved the standing of America around the world… With regards to Iran, which poses the most immediate threat to the security of the United States and its allies, most especially Israel, the policy of the Obama administration is crystal clear: It has taken containment off the table and kept the military option on the table… President Obama has clearly stated that he is not bluffing when he says that his administration will never allow Iran to develop nuclear weapons.”

If that wasn’t clear enough, how about this quote from the great Professor: ““Obama will be better for Israel on Iran…”

It’s hard not to laugh at the man as you watch he delusions become undone. Breitbart reports that in his latest speech Dershowitz commented with regard to Obama’s negotiating skill, “I wouldn’t hire this administration to negotiate a one month lease for me.” He now calls Obama “undiplomatic,” “petulant,” “juvenile.” He recently said that Obama “totally misled the American people” by saying Netanyahu offered no new ideas in his speech to Congress. He’s written-op eds in the Wall Street Journal comparing his hero to Chamberlain.

Gee, who could have seen any of this coming?  You need a Harvard PhD to be clever enough to twist your brain into a pretzel and avoid seeing the obvious until it's too late.


  1. אמר רבי בנימין, הכל בחזקת סומין, עד שהקדוש ברוך הוא מאיר את עיניהם Some, having formed an opinion, resist the מאיר את עיניהם. At least he's not among them on this issue.

  2. His problem is that המחטיא את הרבים אין מספיקין בידו לעשות תשובה

    1. I dount he has an interest in teshuvah. Do you have any doubt that come 2016 he will endore Hillary or Warren or some other left wing liberal loon and then wring his hands after the fact when they pressure Israel into more one-sided "peace" talks with terrorists and Iran continues work on a bomb with no reprecussions? Or maybe at the convention they will have another vote about Jerusalem as the capital and this time they won't be able to fix the outcome and the Dems will show their true colors. We will then be treated to endless explanations (read: more lies) of how fringe groups took over the convention, etc. etc.

  3. While I never like Obama's politics, I was willing to give him the benefit of the doubt on Jewish issues. Until his comments after the Charlie Hedbo massacre, that the murderers killed "random people in a deli." That was a deliberate whitewash of the fact that this was anti-Semitic murder.

    Hard to believe that the Jews in this country still support him after that.
