For the last four years, Richard Silverstein has advocated for Israeli-Palestinian peace on a blog (richardsilverstein.com) that he maintains from Seattle.
People who disagree with his politics frequently leave harassing comments on his site. But the situation reached a new low last month, when an anonymous opponent started a blog in Mr. Silverstein's name that included photos of Mr. Silverstein in a pornographic context.
"I've been assaulted and harassed online for four years," he said. "Most of it I can take in stride. But you just never get used to that level of hatred."
Instead of turning the other cheek, Lerner called desperately for the evil right wing Zionists of the "Jewish World" to be silenced, and to end their attacks on his holy person. Specifically, he blamed Alan Dershowitz for the incident and other Elders of Zion who control the "Jewish world." In expiation, the "Jewish world" must repent before Lerner's God destroys them and expiate their sin by ceasing all criticism of Lernerthought.
Everyone knows all the jokes about the lying scumbag lawyers who talk out of both sides of their mouths and get paid for it. That's pretty much Alan Dershowitz to a T. [Emphasis added]
