In the Jerusalem Post, Alan Dershowitz goes against the new trend among political Zionists who base Israel's right-to-be-there in the Bible-- as opposed to the Holocaust, which Obama cited in Cairo. Dersh is with Obama. He says, Actually the Holocaust is a basis, because the Palestinians supported the Nazis in the second World War.
I find the article emotionally revealing. Dershowitz fell away from Orthodox observance in his own life; and he really does think the Holocaust could happen again here against Jews. His book Chutzpah suggested as much, and when I heard him at Brandeis 2 years back he referred to the '67 line as the "Auschwitz borders," parroting the Revisionists. He holds the Palestinians responsible for the Holocaust; and thereby underscores Avraham Burg's belief, that Jews too quickly forgave the Nazis, and put their unresolved rage against the extermination on to the Arabs. Like here's his take on the Nakba:
The war started by the Palestinians against the Jews in 1947, and the war started by the Arab states in 1948 against the new state of Israel, were both genocidal wars. Their goal was not merely the ethnic cleansing of the Jews from the area but their total annihilation. The leaders said so and the actions of their subordinates reflected this genocidal goal. They were aided in their efforts by Nazi soldiers - former SS and Gestapo members - who had been given asylum from war crime prosecution in Egypt and who had been recruited by the grand mufti to complete Hitler's work.
