In November, Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz and Jeremy Ben-Ami, the executive director of J Street, debated American Foreign Policy and Israel in a discussion moderated by Eliot Spitzer at the 92nd Street Y.
Questions asked included: Should military solutions or diplomatic ones be favored? What is the role of pro-Israel advocacy at a time of changing relationships between the U.S. and Israel? Does the traditional lobby speak for all, or even most, American Jews?
In the highlights above, Dershowitz and Ben-Ami begin by addressing a question by Eliot on their stance on the two state solution and a cessation of settlements. They moved to a debate over Iran and their nuclear program, and how best to deal with that. Both men agreed that the time for sanctions were now. The debate became heated at times, though in the end, both men shook hands after Alan made reference to Shakespeare. As Eliot said, “We not only solved the problems of the Middle East, but now we all understand great literature.”
AMY GOODMAN: Do you think you were partly taken down by the very entities you were going after?
ELIOT SPITZER: I have been very careful in saying that I resigned because of what I did. And I have no doubt that there were many people whom I had—was on the—were opposed to me, very powerful forces, who were happy to see me go. Whether they participated, I’ll let others figure that out. I resigned because of what I did. And whatever they’re involved in doesn’t excuse what I did.
