Ten years on
It’s ten years since the OJ Simpson trial. Professor Alan Dershowitz was on Radio 4 talking about the extraordinary interest the trial generated. He recalled being in Jerusalem for a meeting with leading politicians when the Prime Minister (Benjamin Netanyahu) asked him to step into his office for a “confidential conversation”. After closing the door, Netanyahu said, “Tell me, Professor, did OJ do it?” Dershowitz replied: “Prime Minister, does Israel have nuclear weapons?” Nice riposte, eh? And a good story. Wonder if it’s true.
