(September 8, 2019 / JNS) Professor emeritus of Harvard University Law School and noted Israel advocate Alan Dershowitz claimed last week that former president Barack Obama lied to him about supporting Israel and is now reconsidering his Democrat Party affiliation, according to a report in One America News.
“Starting with a phone call I got when I was in Israel on a very, very noisy night from then-President Obama, he then invited me into the Oval Office to talk to him and he made me promises, which he broke. And I broke my relationship with President Obama,” said Dershowitz, according to the report.
“President Obama’s decision on the way out to allow the United Nations to condemn Israel for occupying the Western Wall, the holiest place in Judaism, the Jewish Quarter [of the Old City of Jerusalem], Hebrew University, the Hadassah Hospital access roads, was abominable, and I took a very strong position against President Obama,” said Dershowitz.
