Harvard Law School Professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz says Barack Obama's recently "lied through his teeth" about Gaza and that his relationship with the former president is over. 

Speaking last week on the Fox Business Channel's "Mornings with Maria" show, Dershowitz took aim at Obama's comments calling for the end of an "occupation" of Gaza and blaming Hamas and Israel for violence in the conflict after Hamas terrorists, who govern the Gaza Strip, invaded Israel on Oct. 7, killing1,200 people and kidnapping 240 more. 

"He just lied through his teeth. There is no occupation of Gaza," Dershowitz said, arguing Israel disengaged from the Gaza Strip in 2005, kicking out all 9,000 Jews who lived in Gaza.

"I think he always had a deep hatred of Israel in his heart," Dershowitz also said. "He hid it very well. He called me to the Oval Office and he said to me, 'Alan, you've known me for a long time. You know I have Israel's back.' I didn't realize he meant to paint a target on it."

Dershowitz said on "The Rich Zeoli Show," a talk radio program, one day before his interview on Fox: "Shame on him for what he did, and I used to vote for him, and I would never, ever support him, vote for him or actually talk to him again. My relationship with him is over."
