Dershowitz: ‘When I Speak About Israel on Campuses, I Need Armed Guards to Protect Me From Radical Leftist Students’ (VIDEO)
Former Harvard Law School professor Alan Dershowitz revealed on Tuesday the extent of the danger in which he sometimes finds himself as a result of his support for the Jewish state.
“When I speak on college campuses in favor of Israel I need armed guards protecting me from radical leftist students who use physical intimidation,” the author of The Case for Israel said in an appearance on Fox and Friends. “They won’t give me a safe space; they won’t give pro-Israel students a safe space; they won’t give Christian students a safe space.”
Dershowitz said that campus speakers who are not “politically correct” these days are physically at risk, and that colleges in the US have become “places where people are afraid of ideas.” He added that students think they know the “truth” about a variety of topics, and are not interested in hearing positions that differ from their own.
“Opposing points of view just offend them,” the international law expert said.
