Ten reasons why I Support Alan Dershowitz, Not


by  Gilad Atzmon


Ethnic cleansing enthusiast Alan Dershowitz is unhappy with the current BDS efforts (boycott, divestment and sanctions against Israel). 

Earlier today Haaretz published Dershowitz’ diatribe on the BDS. For the first time, I have to admit, I agree with the elder Zionist mouthpiece.

Let’s review Dershowitz’ ten arguments against the BDS and peel down through the layers of the onion to see what is in the middle.


1. “The BDS movement immorally imposes the entire blame for the continuing Israeli occupation and settlement policy on the Israelis.”

Dershowitz is obviously correct. It is indeed immoral to blindly blame to oppressor. The victims should also be held accountable.  Israel’s open air prisons’ inmates (the Palestinians) should take responsibility once and for all.  Similarly, instead of blaming the Nazis, we should follow Dershowitz’ new moral guidelines and insist that concentration camp inmates should have questioned their unwillingness to strike a peace deal with the Nazis.

2. “The current BDS movement, especially in Europe and on some American university campuses, emboldens the Palestinians to reject compromise solutions to the conflict.”

Dershowitz hits the nail on the head. It is indeed outrageous that  European and some American universities  encourage Palestinians to reject the ‘Two Jewish States Solution’.

3. “The BDS movement is immoral because its leaders will never be satisfied with the kind of two state solution that is acceptable to Israel. “

The BDS leaders are indeed immoral for not accepting the ‘Two Jewish States Solution’ but also for accepting money from liberal Zionist George Soros, something that led them to compromise on Palestinian precious rights behind the Palestinian people’s back.  

4. The BDS movement is immoral because it violates the core principle of human rights: namely, “the worst first.”

It is indeed immoral of the BDS leaders to criticise Israel instead of joining the humanitarian Israeli visionary ‘New Middle East’ –a utopian dream of a region dominated by sectarian wars in the name of the spring, gay rights and Coca Cola.

5. “The BDS movement is immoral because it would hurt the wrong people.”

“BDS would hurt Palestinian workers who will lose their jobs says Dershowitz.”  Let us face it, there is nothing more encouraging than watching the transformation of ethnic cleanser Dershowitz into a gracious humanitarian driven by concern for the Palestinian worker.

6. “The BDS movement is immoral because it would encourage Iran”

Correct, it is wrong to encourage Iran alone and to forget about billions of potential Jihadists in the region and beyond.

7.” The BDS movement is immoral because it focuses the world’s attention away from far greater injustices, including genocide.

So true, Palestine indeed diverts the attention from Israeli involvement in organ trafficking, blood diamonds, and weapons trade. It may even divert the attention from the Jewish Lobby and its relentless push for global wars.

8. “The BDS movement is immoral because it promotes false views regarding the nation state of the Jewish people, exaggerates its flaws and thereby promotes a new variation on the world’s oldest prejudice, namely anti-Semitism.”

Indeed, we should never exaggerate the flaws of the Jewish State, in fact we don’t have to.  We must remain scientifically accurate and remember that at the time of Operation Cast Lead 94% of the Israeli Jews supported IDF genocidal measures against the Palestinian.

9. “The BDS movement is immoral because it reflects and encourages a double standard of judgment and response regarding human rights violations. “

It is indeed immoral and politically incorrect  to expose crimes committed by Jews and the Jewish State because everyone knows that Jews are beyond criticism.  

10. “The BDS movement will never achieve its goals.”

Correct, BDS will never succeed. The Jews are defined by negation and the BDS is there to fuel Jewish identification. This is why the BDS is dominated and funded by Jewish philanthropists. Let us face it, the BDS won’t topple Israel. The Jewish State will bring itself down and soon.

  1. Perhaps, Mr.Atzman could use his “power of the pen” to outline his prescription for peace in the Middle East. This would be far more useful than the above sniping from the sidelines.

  2. Maybe Dershowitz is really delusional like most people believe. How could anyone agree with such twisted “logic”?

  3. he’s a humanitarian.. keep in mind, vegetarians eat vegetables.
    look at DC’s humanitarian efforts in Haiti, Libya, Syria, and so many other places too.

  4. Gilad

    Al D. seems to be pleased with the shoulder deep shoananas* you gave him -D.

    ( * Is quenellatio the politically correct word for it?).


  5. You could write the same about Henryk M. Broder, Not.

    Unfortunately HMB never gives you a chance to respond, as the latest e-mail by Gabi Weber shows.

    • in other words you want to see Broder photo-shopped into bed with me…Broder is another coward.. we are dealing here with shtetle characters … they are very funny..

    • I can visualize Broder in the shtetle Kiryas Joel controlling the Shabbat laws. The fascinating aspect is he could produce a documentary about Shabbat laws, demanding “closed” lights (screwed out bulbs) in refridgerators, pre-teared toilet paper, no use of elevators, etc., or their ability to cash in 20 to 25 times of the average American social welfare money, and every German would believe it is a mockumentary and they are all geniuses.

    • A simple Photoshop job would not do it. You need to use your international connections asking Latuff for a Broder cartoon, and then asking Roger Waters to show it on his next Wall.

    • Yes please do keep on writing there is no doubt in my mind of you’re sincerity. There are so many writers who’s sole job it is to misdirect while at the same time claiming their angry with Israel,it took me a long time to be able to tell when I come across one but now I can I spot them in a few sentences. There are so many shills that comment and even there I noticed people are no longer feeding the trolls they ignore them now and once a shill is aware of this then their true self comes out with the same old tired talking points.Thank you Gilad for you’re compassion.

    • I saw the question above. As The Wandering Who has an ISBN-10 number (ISBN-10 1846948754) it should be available everywhere, in bookstores, or online, for example at Abebooks.com. (I don’t know if Abebooks belongs to the same category as Amazon or Ebay.)

  6. I’m still laughing at the Photoshop artistry. I imagine Al feels like he’s been screwed…….. the symbolism wasn’t lost. (At least, I HOPE it’s symbolic…..!)

    Sarcasm only works when it’s over-the-top and in this case, Al bombed. Funny stuff and it feels good to watch him squirm..
