Harvard Law School professor Alan Dershowitz criticized former President Barack Obama for his remarks on the Israel-Hamas conflict, calling him an “enemy of justice, an enemy to Israel, and an enemy to the Jewish people.”
“What Hamas did was horrific and there’s no justification for it,” Obama stated.
“And what is also true is that the occupation and what’s happening to Palestinians is unbearable,” he added. (Trending: Court Hands Down Crucial 2nd Amendment Ruling)

“If you want to solve the problem, you have to take in the whole truth, and you have to admit nobody’s hands are clean, that all of us are complicit to some degree.”
“You can’t make those kinds of comparisons Barack Obama. I have to tell you what you did is just despicable. It’s beneath contempt,” said Dershowitz.
“Whatever respect I had for you, I have absolutely lost. Fortunately, so have many other Americans lost respect for you,” he added.
“I’m ashamed that I was your friend. I’m ashamed that I invited you to my birthday party. I’m ashamed that I accepted your invitation to the Oval Office. I’m ashamed that I allowed you to fool me into thinking that you actually supported Israel. You do not,” Dershowitz added.
Dershowitz accused Obama of drawing a moral equivalency between the two sides and expressed his disappointment, stating that he had been fooled by Obama’s previous support for Israel.
“It was not a slip of the tongue. It was a very carefully contrived statement, trying to create a sense of equality and moral unclarity and moral comparison between something that can never be excused – murder, rape, beheadings – and something that is controversial politically and that you Barack Obama didn’t do very much to help the Palestinians get out of,” he pressed.
“You have been an enemy of justice, an enemy to Israel, and an enemy to the Jewish people, and an enemy to decency. And I’m embarrassed I ever thought as highly of you as I obviously did. I was fooled by you. I’ll never be fooled again,” Dershowitz concluded.
He also disputed Obama’s comments about the occupation and Gaza, asserting that there is no Israeli occupation of Gaza.
“First he said the occupation is unbearable. He just lied through his teeth. There is no occupation of Gaza,” Dershowitz said.
“If life is unbearable in Gaza, it is because Hamas has been in control. The kleptocracy. People have stolen billions of dollars that were intended for humanitarian aid and put it in their own personal bank accounts in Qatar,” he pressed.
Dershowitz emphasized that Obama’s true feelings of animosity towards Israel have clearly surfaced.
“I think he always had a deep hatred of Israel in his heart. He hid it very well,” Dershowitz said. “And finally his true feelings have come out now that he’s no longer president.”
