‘They just want to be part of current protest movements’

There are now hundreds, not thousands, of college-age students participating in the anti-Israel protests on campuses across the country.

Most of them have little idea of ​​the reason for their protests, according to longtime Liberal lawyer Alan Dershowitz.

He said they are “useful idiots” for those who have a more nefarious motive behind the protests and violence.

But the threat is that they are being prepared for future terrorists.

Dershowitz, Felix Frankfurter Professor of Law, emeritus at Harvard, wrote in a column at the Gatestone Institute, where he’s a guy, that those protesters include college, middle school, and even high school students.

They protest against Israel, the US and the Jews.

“Some signs say ‘pro-Palestine’, ‘ceasefire now’ and ‘end the humanitarian crisis in Gaza.’ But these benign statements conceal a much more evil agenda, the end of Israel as the nation-state of the Jewish people, the end of America as the world’s leading power, and the end of democracy and the free market economy. Even if there were a unilateral ceasefire, accompanied by massive humanitarian aid to the people of Gaza, many of these protests would continue, because Gaza is just an excuse for a much broader agenda: destroy Israel and destroy America.” he warned.

Protesters from New York, he pointed out, recently called for the atrocities of Hamas’ October 7 attack on Israeli civilians to be repeated “a thousand times.”

“There were shouts of ‘We are Hamas’, ‘Death to America’, ‘Burn Tel Aviv to the ground’, ‘Israel go to hell’ and ‘Jews must return to Poland.’ The chant ‘from the river to the sea, Palestine will be free’ is ubiquitous. Free from what? Free from Jews,” he said.

No one, he said, has been caught with a sign calling for a two-state peace solution.

The call for a “revolution” actually ignores Middle East issues and focuses directly on America, he said.

“Just like in the 1960s, many of these students are being groomed to become the terrorists of the future – in the manner of Kathy Boudin and Bernardine Dohrn at the time – and, in the United States, a fifth column, whose aim is in America “, he said.

There are four players in the protests: Arabs and Muslims who hate Israel and Jews, “old line radicals,” anarchists and America-haters, organizers who handle money and organize violence, and then those “useful idiots.”

They have “little or no knowledge of the substantive issues. They simply want to be part of the current protest movements, which are popular on campuses and among many of their peers. It is this last group that is most disturbing, because many of its members are good and decent people who are being led into dangerous territory by their elders.”

He said: ‘Just because these useful idiots are young doesn’t make them any less dangerous. Young students played an important role in bringing tyrants such as Hitler, Stalin, Castro, Pol Pot and Mao to power.”

He admitted that because they are young, they can still change their ideology. But he said consequences must come to those who are violent.

These should include “arrest and prosecution” – for physically intimidating, blocking and harassing Jews or any minority. Such actions are not protected by the First Amendment, college or post-graduation employer disciplinary rules.”
