Comedian Larry David has been called a lot of things over the course of his long and successful career, but were pretty sure peace maker has never been one of them. Until now. Well, almost sort of, anyway.

Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz has sent an episode of Davids HBO show Curb Your Enthusiasm to Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, in hopes that he will invite Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas over to watch it, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

As dedicated Curb fans have likely already guessed, its none other than the Palestinian Chicken episode, in which David is conflicted over whether its okay to get chicken from a Palestinian-owned restaurant even though to the dismay of his Jewish friends its housed right next to a deli.

David got the whole thing going by first sending the DVD out to Dershowitz. The attorney says its been received by Netanyahu, who is looking forward to watching it.

Maybe if they both get a good laugh, they can begin a negotiating process, says Dershowitz of the two leaders.

It sounds as crazy as any good Curb episode, but after watching this clip we think maybe hes right.

An open letter to supporters, board members and executives of Israeli universities

By Amos Sochaczevski, May 15th, 2013

Israeli universities by their very nature are cauldrons of fractious thought, opinion and research. That is as it should be. Like the oyster that produces a pearl through the friction of the sands, the best work comes about through friction. And perhaps no other nation is so devoted to protecting all manner of thought and opinion as is Israel. That commitment has helped it produce unparalleled excellence in the realms of the arts, literature, science, medicine and technology. Israel is also faced daily with a different kind of friction. An existential one. The constant fear of attacks and destruction at the hands of enemies many times its population size. Enemies that want just a little more of the 1/4 of 1% which is Israels part of the Middle East. Enemies that had a chance to get a state of their own over and over again but always missed the opportunity to do so. I cannot sit idly without giving vent to my feelings on Israeli academics preaching anti-Israeli sentiments and giving aid and comfort to its enemies from their protected, tenured ivory towers. There are dozens of professors employed by Israeli universities working against the very country and institutions they live in and work for, and the problem is growing. Let me cite just a few examples. Ben-Gurion University Eyal Nir, a doctor of chemistry, issued a Facebook call for violence against activists who marched through the capital with flags on Jerusalem Day, urging people to break their necks”. Articles by Neve Gordon have been published in Irans state newspaper. Neve has also endorsed Norman Finkelstein, often regarded as at the least a Holocaust trivializer. David Newman, dean of social sciences and humanities at BGU and Daniel Bar-Tal of the School of Education at Tel Aviv University, have gone so far as to publish calls for the suppression and silencing of critics. Tel Aviv University Anat Matar has been arrested for breaking the law and for participating in violent, illegal demonstrations. She also called for the boycott of Israel and her university. Chaim Gans of the law school organized a petition demanding that Col. Pnina Baruch-Sharvit, head of the Israel Defense Forces international law division, be prevented from teaching a course in the school after her retirement from military service because her department legitimized strikes in which civilians were hurt or killed during Operation Cast Lead. Gadi Algazi, a historian, led a march of Israeli Arabs supporting Hezbollah terror. Uri Hadar, a psychology professor, organized a conference at TAU to support Hamas and Hezbollah. Hebrew University Amiel Vardi and Kobi Snitz were arrested for breaking the law and participating in violent, illegal demonstrations. Professor of linguistic education Nurit Elhanan-Peled has devoted much of her career to promoting the political agenda of terrorist organizations. Haifa University When Islamist cleric Sheikh Raed Salah spoke at the University of Haifa in June 2009, the university ordered that Jewish students be physically barred from entering the auditorium in which he spoke. The cleric then called upon Arab students attending the lecture to become martyrs. Despite his words he later spoke at TAU. In the spring of 2010 Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz, upon receiving an honorary doctoral degree at Tel Aviv University, gave a dramatic speech denouncing the homegrown, anti-Israel cadre of academics dominating Israeli universities. He defended the rights of these academics to exercise freedom of speechor, in his words, the right to be wrong. But he also defended the rights of others to denounce and criticize them. Dershowitz went on to denounce those who insist that freedom of speech belongs only to people who agree with them. Imagine the stress on students who have to make the decision to speak out against their professors or keep their mouths shut so they can get the marks that are critical to their futures. Some student opposition has emerged but it is unmercifully attacked by the professors and the left-leaning media. In 2010 Mark Tanenbaum, also a governor of Tel Aviv Universitys board, and I asked the TAU Senate to investigate the conduct of professors behaviour as it pertained to the Universitys own by-laws, but after a heated debate we were shut out. There is opposition to these professors lead by Im Tirtzu, Isra Campus and NGO Monitor headed by Professor Gerald Steinberg of Bar Ilan University. The Im Tirtzu student movement has emerged as the most effective and vocal force drawing public attention to the abuses stemming from campus politicization. Im Tirtzu leaders have testified in the Knesset and write frequently in the media; the movement regularly organizes counter-protests with Israeli flags and patriotic slogans in response to every anti-Israel demonstration organized by Arab and Jewish leftist students and professors. It has called for pressure on Israeli universities, especially Ben-Gurion University, to force campus officials to act against classroom politicization. In 2010, Im Tirtzu sent Rivka Karmi, the head of the Ben Gurion University of the Negev, a letter, demanding that the university stop the anti-Zionist bias in its Department of Politics and Government. The letter alleged that nine out of 11 professors in the department were involved in extreme left-wing activities (among others, attempting to persuade other countries to join the academic boycotts of Israel). Following Im Tirtzus report, the Israeli Council for Higher Education appointed an international committee to investigate the allegations. The committee came to the conclusion that the curriculum in the Political Science department was imbalanced. The committee said it was concerned that the study of politics as a scientific discipline may be impeded by such strong emphasis on political activism, and recommended closing the department unless changes were made. What is needed to protect students and staff with dissenting views, is for those of us on the boards of the universities to become more vigorous in expressing our concerns for true freedom of speech in Israeli universities. Freedom of speech cannot remain a one-way street. We need to give support to the rising revulsion with anti-Israel academics from the Israeli street and media. As the students say, If you will it it can be achieved.

Make a Note: Blues need to start scoring

LOS ANGELES This Western Conference NHL quarterfinal series is three games old and the teams have combined for six goals in regulation, three each, or one per game.

The Los Angeles Kings have scored one goal in a conventional five-on-five environment. The Blues have two in that fashion.

The thing is, everybody wants a rock. Its strong, aggressive and provocative. Paper, on the other hand, is passive, boring and utilitarian. But paper covers rock every time.

Defense wins. We get it, Floyd Mayweather Jr. gets it, the Billikens get it, Alan Dershowitz gets it.

That said, Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower knew something about defense.

And Ike once said: The problem in defense is how far can you go without destroying from within what you are trying to defend from without.

The Blues are pushing the envelope.

They were shut out in Game 3 , despite throwing 30 shots at Jonathan Quick, despite having openings in which a small car might fit.

To this point, the Note have had only two forwards score in the series.

To this point, defenseman Barret Jackman has one more goal than all but those two forwards.

Boston police: 3 additional suspects in custody

At least two of three additional suspects arrested Wednesday in the Boston Marathon bombing probe face obstruction of justice charges, a federal law enforcement source said.

Boston police announced the arrests Wednesday morning, adding that there was “no threat to the public.”

Two students from New Bedford, Massachusetts, have been arrested on charges of making false statements to investigators and conspiracy to obstruct justice, according to a federal law enforcement source with firsthand knowledge of the investigation.

Alan Dershowitz, a prominent defense attorney and Harvard law professor, said the new charges don’t appear to be related to the bombing itself.

“If they knew about the bombing, if they were involved in the bombing, the charges would be conspiracy to do the acts for which the other man has already been charged,” Dershowitz told CNN. “So it sounds like at this point in time the only evidence they have is actions that took place after the bombing.”

The students are originally from Kazakhstan and were already in custody on immigration charges, according to another source with knowledge of the immigration case. The third is a U.S. citizen, the federal law enforcement source said.

The news follows more than two weeks of frantic investigation after the April 15 attack. Two bombs exploded in the crowd gathered near the finish line of the marathon, killing three people and wounding more than 260.

Federal agents already have accused two brothers, Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, of carrying out the attack. Tamerlan died after a shootout with police, and Dzhokhar is in custody.

The students who now face charges went to college with Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the source familiar with the immigration case said.
