Alan Dershowitz does an excellent job in the case against Israel's enemies on most levels, but misses on one.
Dershowitz, correctly points out the difference between liberals who are on the map vs rabid radicals who are not.
Finkelstein, Chomsky and Lerner play a rather silly game for lucrative rewards. They are confirmed communists who play up their Jewishness to further communism by attempting to put a smiley face on classic anti-semitism. The religious roots of communism have been mentioned by others notably Toynbee. We do not consider Jews who convert to Islam or Christianity to be Jewish and communists in reality are members of a death cult.
Finkelstein pretends he is just an ordinary Jew with survivor parents. He does not inform his readers that he is a Maoist and as such considers histories greatest mass murderer a credible font of ideas. This fact makes any analysis laughable as anyone who ever venerated Mao is incapable of coherent thought. He plays up his parents bio for lucrative speaking fees while concealing his own bio.
Michael Lerner is not a Rabbi and knows nothing about Judaism. Hillary Clinton learned very quickly that he is a pariah in the Jewish community and distanced herself from him quickly. He is yet another Communist masquerading as a Jew while pretending he is a religious authority. He has no authority and is also a fervent communist who serves a death cult.
Noam Chomsky is not a scholar and even liberal Schlessinger nailed him on use of made up Truman quotes long ago. He also presents phantom US-Nazi alliances while ignoring
actual communist - Nazi alliances. He pretends to be an anarchist of some odd school
while merely serving to advance the death cult or obscure its record.
Dershowitz, walks around the margins but never spends the time to examine the realities of communism. He does point out the anti-semitism of Marx, but does not delve into its implications. Fealty to a death cult would call ones judgment into questions. Does communism have religious overtones and if so does it render people like Finkelstein into non Jews.
We have seen an apologist for Chairman Finkelstein do Linda Blair type contortions when confronting his saviors Maoism. The reality is such a fealty to a peverse idea renders anything produced by Finky into garbage.
