Whose statement of the charge? That of the people who are against Dershowitz?

**************
At a time of deepening political and moral crisis, not only for the Israeli government but for the entire right-wing Zionist project, Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz has produced a book purporting to set the record straight by rebutting all the accusations leveled against “the sole outpost of liberty and democracy in the Middle East.” The structure of each chapter is based on a defense lawyer’s submission to a court, a statement of the charge against the accused (Israel) followed by the defense counsel’s repudiation backed up by counter evidence. However, using dubious methods of historical scholarship, the book is shot through with falsification through omission and will convince only the ignorant or the gullible.

    Read it again: "The structure of each chapter is based on a defense lawyer’s submission to a court,"

    The idea is that the chapter is structured like a trial, with Dershowitz as the defense lawyer. When someone is on trial, you first have a statement of the charge -- that is, a description of the accusation made against the accused person. In this case, the accused person is not a person, but is instead Israel.
