Dershowitz Suggests Netanyahu And Abbas Play Chicken

Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz sure has some strange ideas about achieving peace in the Middle East. 

Curb-Palestinian-ChickenCurrent: One last question: what’s your favorite Woody Allen movie?

AD: Well, I met Woody Allen while he was filming Manhattan. He was given to me as a 40th-birthday present by friends. He agreed to have lunch with me, and we became, I wouldn’t say friends, but we became acquaintances from that time on. Since I was there while he was filming Manhattan, I think Manhattan has always been my favorite. And if you want to ask me what my favorite Larry David episode is…it’s “Palestinian Chicken.” And let me tell you this: I recently sent a copy of “Palestinian Chicken,” that Larry David gave me, to Prime Minister Netanyahu—with the suggestion that he invite Abbas over to watch it together. And maybe if they both get a good laugh, they can begin a negotiating process.

Current: Do you know if that happened?

AD: I don’t know, but I know that Netanyahu has received the DVD, and he was looking forward to watching it. So it may be that Larry David will not only win Emmys, but he may even qualify for the Nobel Peace Prize, if his episode could bring together Netanyahu and Abbas, and bring Abbas to the negotiating table.

While I seriously doubt Netanyahu would like it, I suspect Abbas would.

    I confess a fondness for Professor Dershowitz. We share the same political point of view on a lot of things, including Israel. But this guy is one of the biggest name-droppers on the planet. And if you ever listened to his account of the O J Simpson murder trial, you’d have thought Alan Dershowitz himself had headed up the legal dream team rather than advising on the appeal of an expected conviction.

    Do you really think Dershowitz is being serious, or just making a joking remark?
