Alan Dershowitz Explains Why He Feels Conned by Obama and Regrets His Second Vote for Him



...To those on the left, who believe Trump has no constitutional rights, he is seen as a turncoat. So much so that he’s become a pariah among longtime liberal friends on Martha’s Vineyard, where he spends his summers....

Dershowitz said he feels conned by Obama and regrets voting for him in 2012, the second time he voted for him. He explains:
He called me into the Oval Office and he said ‘I have Israel’s back’ and I didn’t realize what he meant is to put a target on it and stab them. As he was leaving office, he ordered his representative to the U.N. [Samantha Powers] to not veto [abstain from voting] a resolution which declared…the Kotel, the Western Wall, the holiest place in Judaism, to be occupied territory along with the access roads to Hebrew University and the Hadassah Hospital and the Jewish quarter was outrageous…outrageous. And it just legitimated more and more people in the Democratic Party saying well we should have a balance of Palestinians who have turned down statehood since ’38, ’48, ’67, ’90, 2000, 2001, 2007, 2008. So, I think in the Democratic Party now, there’s a real danger support.
I’m surprised a man as smart as Alan Dershowitz could have been conned by Barack Obama....
