Oy! Melanie Phillips Takes Apart Alan Dershowitz

The insufferable Alan Dershowitz is being taken apart by the much sharper and clearer-eyed thinker Melanie Phillips. MC thinks Phillips is a treasure. No soft thinking about anything from her, thank you. Here is a taste of what she has to say:

"My argument was rather that Dershowitz and those like him amongst American Jews appeared incapable of acknowledging the terrible truth about Obama simply because they appear incapable of acknowledging that a Democratic President could ever be bad for Israel and the world. Their obsessive and irrational – indeed, Manichean -- dread of the Republican party means they approach politics with heavy blinkers on and become incapable of seeing what is under their noses, a fact which Dershowitz’s own article merely underscores."
