Political and social observations from two aspiring hedgehogs who love the Isaiah Berlin essay.

From PJTV, Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz's speech at the Durban Watch Conference. Lecturing across the street from the UN, Dershowitz, armed only with logic and facts, flays the UN and the Palestinian statehood initiative. Along the way, he totally discredits the concept of basing Israeli-Palestinian peace talks on "the 1967 borders with mutually agreed-upon swaps," demonstrating how that position would almost certainly result in the loss to Israel and the Jewish people of the Western Wall, the Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem and access to the Hebrew University campus on Mount Scopus, all of which are not within the so-called 1967 borders. The video could not be embedded on this blog, so please follow the link.
