Alabama has enacted a sweeping ban on a woman’s right to choose abortion in clear and willful violation of Roe v. Wade. If the goal of this benighted legislation is to get the Supreme Court to reverse its decision in Roe v. Wade, it will likely backfire.

"Last week, in Israel, I committed a flagrant violation of international law. This "war crime" consisted of placing a note asking for "peace, salaam, shalom" in the Western Wall, Judaism's holiest site."

If the students who demanded the firing of Sullivan had been around in 1776, John Adams would have been fired as an author of the Declaration because he made them feel unsafe for representing the Brits accused of the Boston Massacre. Shame on these student McCarthyites.

“Feeling unsafe” is the new mantra of the new McCarthyism. It’s an excuse for firing anyone, from a Republican to a Muslim.

This may be the worst violation of academic freedom during my 55 year association with Harvard. Any student who feels “unsafe “in the presence of Dean Sullivan and his wife does not belong at a university.

The new McCarthyism comes to Harvard. The firing of Dean Sullivan reminds me of the bad old days when lawyers were fired for representing communists, gay people, civil rights demonstrators and women seeking abortions.

My friend , whose views I respect, disagrees with my views on obstruction of justice. Why don’t we have a rational, thoughtful debate so viewers can hear both sides of this important issue.

This Der Sturmer type spider caricature of me was published by the official Berkeley newspaper. The Jewish Forward defended it as as merely anti Israel. What do you think?
