Why I Love Alan Dershowitz
Just interviewed Professor Dershowitz on the radio show. He gave the real story of Brandeis' invitation to Jimmy Carter to appear on campus and discuss the former president's new book "Chicken Soup For The Anti-Semitic Soul."
For example, Dershowitz put the lie to the claim that Jimmy Carter will willing to debate but just wasn't willing to debate him. Not true. Carter refused to agree to any debate of his idiotic "Blame The Jews First!" theories. Reading Carter's pseudo-conspiracy theories about the Jewish cabal running America and his complaints that he can't get invited to universities where Jews attend, one is reminded that Carter is a Southern Baptist from Georgia who grew up
during the Klan era.
I asked Dershowitz why Carter seemed to always find a way to embrace anti-Semites among the Arabs or in Iran and simultaneously was willing to blame Israel for all the ills in the world. He told me "I wonder if Carter has crossed the line into anti-Semitism."
Jimmy Carter may think he was manhandled by Ronald Reagan and the Ayatollah Khomeini, but he ain't seen nothin' yet. Dershowitz pledged on my show tonight to follow Carter around the country, challenging his statements and pointing out his failed logic.
"Carter is going to debate me one way or another," Dershowitz told me. "The only question is, will it be face to face, or will it be through others. "
"What's the difference between a Rottweiler and Alan Dershowitz?," he asked me. "The Rottweiler will eventually let go."
Good luck, President Carter. You're going to need it.
