Legal scholar Alan Dershowitz has slammed Democrat President Joe Biden for promoting the narrative that Americans are “Islamophobic.”
The Harvard University law professor blasted Biden over the president’s formation of an initiative to combat Islamophobia.
On Wednesday, the Biden administration launched the initiative while claiming there has been a rise in anti-Islam attacks.
Biden launched the initiative two days after announcing steps to combat anti-Semitism.
The Biden admin was forced to respond following a string of anti-Israel protests on college campuses.
During the protests, some speakers praised Hamas after the radical Islamic terrorist group carried out a deadly attack on Israel.
“It is an insult to all Americans,” Dershowitz, a Democrat, told Fox Business host Larry Kudlow on Thursday.
“What they’re doing, Biden is accusing Americans of being anti-Islam, anti-Muslim, anti-Arab,” Dershowitz continued.
“There is just no evidence of that.
“There was some of that after 9/11 but I haven’t seen one single instance of it.
“They point to the fact some drunken landlord killed a 6-year-old person who happened to be a Muslim.
“One case unrelated to the Middle East issue probably, and they make that equivalent to what is going on college campuses.”
The comments from Dershowitz come after Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and other radical Democrat members of the so-called “Squad” released statements defending Hamas.
They began calling for a “ceasefire” almost immediately after Israel began military operations in response to the deadly October 7 terrorist attacks by Hamas.
Republicans, and some Democrats, have accused the “Squad,” particularly Tlaib and Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), of anti-Semitism over the calls.
Tlaib escaped censure when 22 Republicans joined Democrats in voting to table a resolution condemning the congressman for her anti-Semitic comments.
The resolution was sponsored by Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA).
“President Biden wants to create a moral sense of equality, so he always talks about anti-Semitism and in the same breadth talks about anti-Islam and anti-Arab attitudes on college campuses,” Dershowitz said.
“That is a myth there is no anti-Arab or Muslim attitudes on college campuses.
“I don’t know of a single incident of where a member of Hamas has been assaulted.
“It is all directed against Jews,” he noted.
“There is pro-Islamic, pro-Hamas, pro-Arab attitudes on university campuses.”
Many of the protests have featured chants of “from the river to the sea, Palestine will soon be free,” a phrase that has connotations of wiping out Israel.
