Alan Dershowitz vs. Jeremy Ben-Ami: American Foreign Policy and Israel

Nov 21, 2009

Moderated by Eliot Spitzer, Alan Dershowitz and Jeremy Ben-Ami debated over American policy in the Middle East. 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? Has J Street helped or hurt the prospects for peace? Does the traditional lobby speak for all, or even most, American Jews? Alan Dershowitz, who has been called Israel's top defender in the court of public opinion, and Jeremy Ben-Ami, the founder and director of J Street, wrestle with these and other issues.
