Yediot says that Netanyahu offered the job of Israel’s UN ambassador to Alan Dershowitz, who turned him down. Presumably because he was more effective being Israel’s unofficial ambassador to Harvard/the Establishment and doesn’t want to be outed as a dual loyalty case? (Michael Oren had to give up his American citizenship when he agreed to serve Netanyahu). Yediot:
He is considered one of the world’s most famous lawyers. He was the one who got OJ Simpson acquitted from charges of murdering his ex-wife. He is an ardent supporter of Israel. Now it turns out that Netanyahu and Lieberman courted him enthusiastically, offering him the position of Israel’s UN ambassador.
