Dershowitz update

In a previous post today I quoted Alan Dershowitz and used the phrase “excellent credentials.” This unfortunate phrase was meant more towards Huffington Post, where the article appeared and not so much at Dershowitz.

As it arises, the Grand Mufti was discredited by many of his own, something Dershowitz certainly has to know. Which neatly demonstrates the real point of that post – that some parties in a conflict do not want an end to the conflict because it suits their purposes that it continues.

So, no, I’m not supporting someone who advocates torture and led the smear against Finklestein.

As for Iran, we can certainly say “no war on Iran” while also not supporting the more crackpot views of Ahmadinejad. The two are not mutually exclusive and opposing an insane imperialistic war remains the major goal.
