Dershowitz Defends Palin Against Shrill Cries of Left
Sarah Palin fights back against the sick bastards who are using the horrible events of last Saturday to damage her, and others engaged in nothing but noble activities. Her use of the term "Blood Libel" has created a new controversy.
The term, he said, "brings back painful echoes of a very dark time in our communal history when Jews were falsely accused of committing heinous deeds. When Governor Palin learns that many Jews are pained by and take offense at the use of the term, we are sure that she will choose to retract her comment, apologize and make a less inflammatory choice of words."
Is blood libel really such a volatile term, or is the left just locked and loaded whenever Sarah speaks?
Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz, who often comments on Israeli affairs, came to Palin's defense, saying that the term has "taken on a broad metaphorical meaning in public discourse." Dershowitz said he has used the term himself to describe false accusations against the State of Israel by the Goldstone Report. He added, "There is nothing improper and certainly nothing anti-Semitic in Sarah Palin using the term to characterize what she reasonably believes are false accusations that her words or images may have caused a mentally disturbed individual to kill and maim."
