Alan Dershowitz: If Keith Ellison is Appointed DNC Chair, I Will Resign My Membership
by Matthew Wisner
As the debate continues over the Obama administration's handling of the U.N. resolution condemning Israeli settlements, there are signs it is causing a divide within the Democratic Party. "Electile Dysfunction" author and Harvard Law Professor Emeritus Alan Dershowitz weighs in on the political fallout from the Obama administration's handling of Israel.
"[The New York Times] has a story today saying only right-wing Jews condemn [Secretary of State] Kerry. Hey, I'm a left-wing liberal Jew, [U.S. Senator from New York] Schumer is a liberal Jew – you know, they just make up the news," Dershowitz told the FOX Business Network's Sandra Smith.
When asked if the issue of Israel was foreshadowing a divide within the Democratic Party, Dershowitz responded, "It does, and if they now appoint [Minnesota Rep.] Keith Ellison, who worked with [Nation of Islam leader] Farrakhan, to be chairman of the DNC you're going to see a lot of people leave."
