Dershowitz, Wall St Journal, recieve white powder mail from Knoxville, Tenn.

Cambridge, MA

Cambridge Police report that at 11:30am this morning they responded to Harvard Law in response to a call that an envelope, addressed to Alan Dershowitz, was opened and found to contain a white powder. The return address was Knoxville, Tenn. AP reports that several similar letters, addressed to executives at the Wall Street Journal, in NYC were also sent from various addresses in Knoxville.

Dershowitz, who once referred to the '67 borders in Israel/Palestine as "Auschwitz borders," recently wrote an opinion piece published in the Wall Street Journal, defending Israel's agression in Gaza. He was one of the attornies on OJ's "Dream Team." To better understand the issue of the two state solution, the Israel/Palistine conflict, the contrast between the Holocost and Nakba, and the term "Auschwitz Borders," I offer this quote from Bradley Burston:
{There was a time when the mention of 1967 lines was met with nothing more than one version or other of Abba Eban's 1969 comment to the German newspaper Der Spiegel: "We have openly said that the map will never again be the same as on June 4, 1967. For us, this is a matter of security and of principles. The June map is for us equivalent to insecurity and danger. I do not exaggerate when I say that it has for us something of a memory of Auschwitz." }

The Boston Herald is reporting that suspecious letters were also sent to Rockland Town Hall. Aparently the FBI is looking into any possible connections.
