President Barack Obama has shown blatant hypocrisy when it comes to Israel, renowned Harvard Law School professor Alan Dershowitz noted in a scathing op-ed Tuesday – with double standards on giving and receiving criticism from other nations, Arutz Sheva reports.
Dershowitz wrote as follows in a Fox News Op-Ed:
“Recall how outraged the same President Obama was when the prime minister of a friendly country, Benjamin Netanyahu, spoke his mind about the Iran Deal. So what is it, Mr. President? Should friends speak their minds about controversial issues when visiting another country, or should they keep their views to themselves? Or is your answer that friends should speak their minds only when they agree with other friends, but not when they disagree?
“Such a view would skew the market place of ideas beyond recognition…
“The president owes the American people, and Benjamin Netanyahu, an explanation for his apparent hypocrisy and inconsistency.
“Let there be one rule that covers all friends – not one for those with whom you agree and another for those with whom you disagree. For me the better rule is open dialogue among friends on all issues of mutual importance. Under this rule, which President Obama now seems to accept, he should have welcomed Prime Minister Netanyahu’s advocacy before Congress, instead of condemning it.”
