Professor Alan Dershowitz

Alan Dershowitz said J Street is “totally undercutting American policy toward Iran.” According to the Harvard University law professor, the message of the group can no longer be viewed as pro-Israel because it opposes any U.S. military intervention in the Islamic Republic.

J Street’s website states that a military strike against Iran “would be ill advised… We therefore oppose legislation authorizing, encouraging, or in other ways laying the groundwork for the use of military force against Iran.”

“You can’t call yourself pro-Israeli and not want the American military option kept open,” Dershowitz told the Times of Israel.

The attorney said J Street is undercutting President Barack Obama. Dershowitz said he believes Obama “means it when he says the military option is on the table.”

J Street responded that Dershowitz is “attacking positions we have not taken.”
