Harvard Law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz on Friday revealed former President Barack Obama’s criticism is due to the former president’s “deep hatred” for the Jewish State.

Obama previously stated that Israel’s occupation of Gaza was unbearable and that everyone was to blame for the ongoing Israel-Hamas war. Dershowitz, while speaking on Fox Business Network’s “Mornings with Maria,” reacted to Obama’s claim, noting that the former president lied about the occupation.

“Well, first he said that the occupation is unbearable. He just lied through his teeth,” Dershowitz said. “There’s no occupation of Gaza In 2005 and if life’s unbearable in Gaza it’s because Hamas has been in control.

Dershowitz insisted that there is no occupation in the West Bank while suggesting that claims to the region are disputed.

“As far as the occupation of the West Bank, he’s been to Ramallah. He knows Ramallah. There’s no occupation. It’s as beautiful and as nice as Jerusalem, except a lot safer because there’s no terrorism. And to compare those disputed claims with the [Assaults], beheadings, burnings [and] kidnappings is just obscene and despicable,” Dershowitz added.

The law professor added that even though the former president condemned Hamas’ Oct. 7 attack, his false claim lends support to students who believe the attack on Israel was justified.

Asked if the former president understands the impact of his words on Israel, Dershowitz maintained that Obama knows what he is doing and that the former president hates Israel.

“I think he always had a deep hatred of Israel in his heart. He hid it very well,” Dershowitz said. “He called me to the Oval Office, and he said ‘Alan, you know I have Israel’s back.’ I didn’t know he had a target on it. He has never been supportive of Israel. And finally, his true feelings have come out now that he’s no longer president, [and] doesn’t have to be elected. So he is contributing enormously to the problem because he is respected among young people. If he says the occupation is unbearable and that anything can be done to stop it, he is asking people to engage in their antisemitic, anti-Israel and anti-American attitudes. He should be ashamed of himself. He should apologize. But he won’t.”
