Judt Responds to Dershowitz’s Characterization: ‘It Is a Lie’

I emailed Tony Judt to tell him how Dershowitz had characterized his position re Israel. Judt responded:

“It is a lie, and implicitly defamatory (a dissolver of Israel is an anti-Zionist is an anti-semite, etc…). From Dershowitz one expects no better. But thanks to Leon [Wieseltier] it is the received reading of my text. What I actually said was that Israel cannot remain an exclusively Jewish state while aspiring to be a democracy and must, if it is to survive, become the state of all its citizens.”
