‘The Architect of the Whole Plan’: Harvard Law Graduate Ken Chesebro’s Path to Jan. 6
To the editors:
Harvard University occupies the preeminent place among institutions of learning in America, and it is a colossal pity that its faculties are so often guilty of so much intellectual and moral laziness. Bully, then, for Frankfurter Professor of Law Alan M. Dershowitz, a man with whom I often find it difficult to agree—on anything (Opinion, “A Challenge to House Master Hanson,” Sept. 23). His courage in challenging Winthrop House Master Paul Hanson—for having signed an anti-Israeli divestment petition—deserves all the praise I can muster. That educated people could conclude Israel is worse in humanitarian terms than, say, Syria or Zimbabwe or China is testimony to the bias Israel faces and a reminder of the grim world into which irresponsible men like Hanson would deliver us.
