"The neo-atheists, like their predecessors from a century ago"...,
norman might be a wealthy man, but only on hypothetical paper:
this debate is a riot, if you're into that sort of thing.
The big fancy point of contention is whether Dershowitz has ever looked at B'Tselem's casualty statistics for the second intifada. He insists more civilians have been killed by the Palestinians and that nobody at all would ever disagree with that assessment, citing B'Tselem, insisting we go to their website and look for ourselves. Check it and see.
Right around 41:00 Dershowitz says Finkelstein doesn't support a two-state settlement: I'm not sure why this would be a big deal or not, but it's strange, particularly as Finkelstein is always complaining about how "Israel stubbornly rejected this two-state settlement".
I really don't get the point of this misrepresentation, Dershowitz says the same thing about the Chomsky, and presumably others, but you can just glance at that guy's website and see that that ain't true, going back to the 70s. I have no idea what the utility of the lie is for Dershowitz. What's it prove? If I remember what I saw correctly Alexander Cockburn supports a bi-national state, it's not realistic, but, well, so what? J'accuse what exactly?
Maybe it's got something to do with Alan's calling the '67 green line the "auschwitz line". WTF does that mean.
