He once said "the laws of war and rules of morality must adapt to (new) realities." Law Professor Francis Boyle called him a notorious bigot and advocate of murder and torture.
During Pillar of Cloud, he headlined an op-ed , "Israel's right to self-defense against Hamas," saying:
Hamas "target(s) Israeli civilians in their homes"Israel target(s) terrorist leaders and other legitimate military targets."
"Hamas supporters celebrate the murder of Jewish civilians."
"Israel's response - targeting only terrorists and Hamas military leaders - is completely lawful and legitimate." Its "self-defense"."
Dershowitz corrupts truth and legal principles. He considers Palestinian civilian men, women, children, infants, fetuses, and the elderly fair game.
He calls murdering them in cold blood self-defense. He's not alone. Scoundrel media feature these type commentaries. Reputable ones are suppressed.
Aggressive wars are called just. Patriotism means supporting wrong over right. Oppressed Palestinians are isolated on their own. Maybe one day they'll be free. The fullness of time will tell. A long struggle remains.
