    Dershowitz Decries ‘Kafkaesque World of American Justice’

    It appears Alan Dershowitz feels there are some major problems with the US justice system. Yep, being on the wrong side of the stick would have a tendency to make you feel that way. But there is no doubt, he has profited greatly from it.

    So, are are you implying that because Dershowitz worked in the legal field and has been quite successful at it, that his opinion is not legitimate?
    Or what is the direction that you intended for the thread?

    I'll answer the question, but let me ask you first. What do you think?

    I don't dictate directions lizzie.
    What do I think about what? Your opinion, or Dershowitz? What I was asking was what you want the discussion to revolve around. I can't tell from your op.

    I'm sorry. I mean what do you think that I am implying?

    I would like for the discussion to be about Dershowitz, his case, and how public opinion will influence his case. But again, I don't dictate directions. I want to hear what other people honestly think.

    He just hates Alan Dershowitz with a passion usually reserved for elected officials.

    Yeah, I was suspecting that last weekend, but wasn't quite sure if that's what I was seeing.

    Okay, now, what it appears is that it's a Jewish issue with you, rather than one of law. That's what I was thinking, but it took awhile to really be apparent.


    I have never been a huge fan of Dershowitz, but in this case, I hope that evidence is presented which shows he is not guilty of what is being accused. In spite of my ideological differences with the man, I've never been one who believed him to be of poor character. Time will tell us, I suppose.

    That is not true, in fact I used to be a big fan, and to this day, I still respect him for his intelligence. You are however free to believe what you want to believe. Whatever makes you feel better.

    Whether or not he is guilty is in no way a Jewish issue. But, as I have said before, the fact that he is a prominent Jewish person who has spoken out on Jewish issues means that it is of interest if Jews will support him, SIMPLY because he is Jewish, and whether or not the fact that he is Jewish will influence the court of public opinion in his case.

    I used to be a big Dershowitz fan. Why is it that you did not care for him?

    I hope the truth prevails, whatever that is.
