Alan Dershowitz Brilliantly Strikes down Anti-Israel Question at Conference
Famed US lawyer and political commentator Alan Dershowitz, recently gave a talk and showed his strong passion for the Israeli state. After his speech at a conference he allowed the audience a chance to ask him questions.
A woman of Palestinian origin gave a long winded question/statement, in which Dershowitz brilliantly shot down all her points, logically and brilliantly.
When questioned as to why 80% of residents in Gaza rely on Humanitarian Aid, Dershowitz fervently answered that there was no reason that they should live on this welfare. The Palestinians in Gaza were given so many options when Israel left Gaza with working greenhouses and other resources and that the residents of Gaza did nothing and continue to do nothing. While they can be creating a fruitful state, they continue to blame Israel for their issues.
The Palestinian woman went on to state that her family land was taken away by Israelis who settled there. Dershowitz interrupted her and said 70 years ago Jewish land was taken away by Europeans during the Holocaust, and the Jews got over it and built a state of their own in Israel. So too, the Palestinians should get over the fact that land that was taken away from them decades ago. He also said that land has been taken away from citizens in countries all over the world and the Palestinians are the only ones that still complain about it all these years later and do nothing to better their lives.
Dershowitz ended his impassioned speech with a huge round of applause from the audience, effectively shutting down any protests from the Palestinian woman.
