In this interview, Alan Dershowitz reveals that his failure as a sausage maker and his lack of brains led him to the law. I swear the guy’s his own worst enemy. I call him a clown and buffoon and his pals who read this blog get offended. But you listen to the video and tell me how you can see it any differently. To me, he’s the pro-Israel version of Ann Coulter. All mouth and as A.A. Milne would’ve said: “A Jew of very little brain.”
By the way, the ingredients in those sausages he rolled was probably of higher quality than the substance of his arguments defending Israel’s egregious sins:
When I was young everybody told me I had a good mouth, but I didn’t have a particularly good brain. And so my principal called me in one day and said: “Find a profession that you use your mouth but not your head. You could either be,” he said, “a lawyer or a Conservative rabbi.” I wasn’t smart enough to be a rabbi so I had to become a lawyer.
To reveal this in a public interview either signifies a supreme egomaniac or someone who is a supreme ironist. We know which it is in Der Dersh’s case.
Among other subtle pieces of wisdom in this interview:
“Today, Israel is a source of embarrassment for French Jews and many British Jews. They want to disassociate themselves because otherwise they won’t be invited to dinner parties. It’s very important for people to restore a sense of pride in the accomplishments of the Jewish state.”
“I support Israel because I am a civil libertarian and a human rights activist,” says Dershowitz.
What he means to say is that he supports Israel because he wants to world to support Israeli JEWISH civil liberties and human rights. He certainly does not support Israel because he wishes the world to support the civil liberties of Israeli Arabs (though they too are citizens of Israel)–al ahat kama v’kama the rights of Palestinians. The latter are somewhere down in the lowest circle of Hell in terms of Dershowitz’s valuation of their claim to human rights.
Keep in mind, this is the same genius who defended Israel’s assaults on Lebanese civilians. I can only imagine how horrible his views would be about the recent butchery in Gaza.
It never ceases to amaze me that Jewish media outlets actually value the opinions of this buffoon. Why would Haaretz feature him as it does in this interview? Does anyone really care what he has to say about anything? One thing I do have to hand it to him though: he has the market cornered on self-regard.
