Alan Dershowitz: ‘Jewish Leadership Beneath Contempt in Regards to Fairness’ | ‘Top Story,’ Ep. 33

JNS editor-in-chief Jonathan Tobin gives his take on the aftermath of the hostage situation at Congregation Beth Israel in Texas, and talks with legal expert and professor Alan Dershowitz.


Editor-in-chief Jonathan S. Tobin discusses the Texas synagogue attack and whether it’s OK to discuss who is inciting anti-Semitism among Muslims.

He’s also joined by longtime legal analyst, author and professor emeritus at Harvard Law School Alan Dershowitz; they two discuss getting “canceled” for representing controversial clients such as former President Donald Trump, and American financier and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, and how this has impacted his ability to speak up for Israel.

The two talk about the decline of pro-Israel sentiment in the Democratic Party, the future of Zionist advocacy, the way Jewish groups and colleges are silencing pro-Israel voices to avoid controversy, and the impact of critical race theory on American politics and culture.

“Top Story” also airs on JBS-TV.
