Alan Dershowitz Tells Jews Never to Apologize for Jewish Power and Influence
Alan Dershowitz recently told a conference of Jews that they should not deny or apologize for Jewish power and influence in American public life. In his remarks, the prominent academic, lawyer and activist said: “People say Jews are too powerful. We’re too strong. We’re too rich. We control the media. We have too much this. We have too much that. And we often apologetically deny our strength and our power. Don’t do that! Don’t do that! We have earned the right to influence public debate!” Dershowitz was addressing a conference of some 250 people in Los Angeles, March 4-6, 2017, organized by the Jewish-Zionist group “StandWithUs.” The gathering, titled “Combating the Boycott Movement Against Israel,” focused on countering the global “Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions” (BDS) movement against Israel.
