Liberal Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz told The Daily Caller that he finds the 2012 Democratic Party platform’s omissions on Hamas and Palestinian refugees “deeply troubling.”

Israeli Ambassador ‘categorically’ denies DWS claim he said GOP was ‘dangerous for Israel’

CHARLOTTE –The Israeli Ambassador to the U.S. has released a statement “categorically” denying Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s claim that he accused Republicans of being “dangerous for Israel.” The Washington Examiner earlier reported that at a Monday event here, Wasserman Schultz decried Republicans attacks on President Obama’s record on Israel, and insisted that, “We know, and I’ve heard no less than Ambassador Michael Oren say this, that what the Republicans are doing is dangerous for Israel.”

But the Israeli embassy has now released a statement from Ambassador Michael Oren responding to the Examiner report. “I categorically deny that I ever characterized Republican policies as harmful to Israel,” the statement reads. “Bipartisan support is a paramount national interest for Israel, and we have great friends on both sides of the aisle.”

Update:  At Constitutional Free America Rob Miller examines the 2008 DNC stance on Israel and compares it to the current one:

This year’s Democratic Party Platform is an interesting document to read.  Aside from radical stances on things like same-sex marriage and unlimited, government-funded abortion on demand including partial birth abortion, it’s noteworthy in that it focuses on attacking Mitt Romney by name rather than merely stating the party’s position on the issues.  This use of platform planks as attack vehicles is something unique in the history of platforms from either party.

One interesting part of this year’s Democrat party platform is its anti-Israel language.  In order to appreciate exactly how anti-Israel it is, it is necessary to compare it with the 2008 Democrat platform …
