Last week we pointed out that Alan Dershowitz gets access in the White House even though he calls Obama Neville Chamberlain. Well here’s another milestone in Dershowitz’s journey into crazy judgment, a piece in the Jerusalem Post calling Alice Walker a neo-Nazi because she has refused to grant an Israeli publisher the rights to The Color Purple because she is boycotting the country.
Dershowitz smears Walker with everything he’s got. I think this is another sign that BDS is taking hold and advocates are concerned.
This is the moral and legal equivalent of neo-Nazi author David Duke disallowing his books to be sold to Black and Jewish readers.
There is an appropriate moral and legal response to Walker’s bigotry. The publisher who had sought permission to publish Walker’s book in Hebrew should simply go ahead and do it – without her permission and over her objection…
Walker participated in unlawful efforts to break Israel’s entirely lawful military blockade of the Gaza Strip – a blockade designed to prevent Hamas and other terrorist groups from bringing to Gaza weapons that are aimed at Israeli civilians.
In doing so, she has provided material support for terrorism, in violation of the law of the United States and several other countries.
Her bigotry against the Jewish state and in support of terrorists knows no bounds. Now she is even prepared to impose censorship of her own writings as a tool in support of terrorism….
Her writings should be published in Hebrew, whether she likes it or not, and the royalties should be contributed to the NAACP
