Dershowitz: Iran Deal Could Be ‘Cataclysmic Error’​

By: JTA

Harvard Law School professor and vocal Israel supporter Alan Dershowitz said the deal reached in Geneva under which Iran promised to stop uranium enrichment beyond 5 percent in exchange for $7 billion in sanctions relief “could turn out to be a cataclysmic error of gigantic proportions.”

“It could also turn out to be successful, to be the beginning of a negotiated resolution,” Dershowitz told Newsmax.,” but I think the likelihood of it being the former is considerably greater.”

Dershowitz believes the Obama Administration has only a 10 percent chance of changing the Iranian leadership’s attitude on its nuclear program.

“When you weigh that against the 30 or 40 percent chance that they’re dead wrong—nuclear bomb wrong—then it’s a very bad assessment of risk and benefits,” he said.

    NOW IS THE TIME TO START A CAMPAIGN AGAINST OBAMA AND HILLARY. I AM WILLING TO TAKE THE PAIN IF YOU WILL WRITE A STORY TO SUPPORT ME AGAIN. THIS TIME WE MUST START EARLY AND NOW. IT DOES NOT MATTER WHO THE REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE WILL BE UNLESS HE OR SHE IS AN ANTI-SEMITE AND EXTREMIST MUSLIM LOVER SOCIALIST AS OBAMA.

    I WAS THE HEAD OF RABBIS FOR ROMNEY. THE AMERICAN RABBIS WOULD NOT LISTEN. WHAT A SHANDA. ISRAEL IS IN TROUBLE.Trying to lull us into complacency is what the Judenrat in the Ghettos did for their masters RABBI DR. BERNHARD ROSENBERG

  3. No could be about it, it is! Stinks

    Rabbi Rosenberg,
    The only shanda is that any Jew would support any republican!
    Every republican is anti semetic and only wants Israel intact so they can create the needed circumstances for their rapture to occur. One of the major things they need is for all Jews to be in Israel for this to begin. Once they are there, they will be forced to convert or they ground will open up and swallow them to hell. In order for this to happen, there has to be an Israel and that is the reason they support Israel.

    You may not believe this, but it is the truth. You can listen to whatever nonsense they tell you, but their track record on telling the truth is absolutely zero! They have used the Hitler big lie theory very effectively and convinced low informed and ignorant people what they say is indeed the truth, when of course it is not.

    No matter how wrong you are you are entitled to your opinion, but under no circumstance should you declare your opinion as the truth, as it is not!

  5. Edward Lobel says:

    Alan Dershowitz, you may be correct or you may not be correct!
    While this is an amazingly important topic, I would like you to address why you have not responded to Raphael Eduardo Cruz's statement that there are at least 11 professors at the Harvard Law School who are communists. By not responding does that mean he is correct? Please advise.

  6. Dita Gould says:

    I feel the same way as Dershowitz & Netanyahu. I thought there will be stronger sanctions instead they let them off the hook.The Iranians are the only ones celebrating.
