9. So by the same token...
do people have a 'good point' if they bring up settler violence in connection with the massacre of the Fogel family? (People did, and we both thought it was disgusting.)

NOTHING can justify or even mitigate the evil that Breivik did! NOTHING!

And the young people who died had nothing to do with the invitation to Atzmon.

I have several good friends, who count as family to me, in Norway; and your saying that Dershowitz had a 'good point' here reminds me of the people who use some act by an Israeli organization as justification, or at least mitigation, for terrorism against Israeli civilians or Diaspora Jews.

I am NOT someone who has a kneejerk negative reaction to anything that Dershowitz says, just because it's him. Some things he says are right (as in the OP), and some are wrong. However, the remarks he made about Norway were not only wrong, but utterly inexcusable, and if they were partly based on anger at being uninvited (not 'banned') by the university, then that makes them even worse.

I will not reply further to any comments on this issue, as I will get too emotional; but I have said my piece, and that's where it stands.
