One question for the ‘esteemed and brilliant’ Harvard law professor:

What took you so long?

Via Algemeiner:

Long-time Democrat, Israel defender and famed law professor Alan Dershowitz told a synagogue audience on Saturday night that he was “furious” with President Obama over the Iran nuclear deal.

Speaking at Manhattan’s illustrious Park East Synagogue on the Upper East Side… Dershowitz implied he had been betrayed by the president he had formerly championed.

He recounted being invited to the Oval Office before Obama’s reelection in 2012, where the president had committed to being vigilant on the Iranian nuclear issue. Obama has now crossed many of his own red lines, said Dershowitz, who backed Obama in two elections.

The international law expert, who just published The Case Against the Iran Deal: How Can We Now Stop Iran from Getting Nukes? –– a book he completed in 11 days — went on to point out that not a single senator who announced support for the deal was of the opinion that it was a good agreement….

The former Harvard scholar said the deal was worse than Russian roulette, because there is a “more than a one-in-six chance under this deal that Iran will develop nuclear weapons.”

As someone who knows the Israeli prime minister, he insisted that Benjamin Netanyahu is “not going to preside over a second Shoah [Holocaust],” and if it came to the “terrible tragic choice” of allowing Iran to go nuclear or taking military action, the premier would chose the latter….

    Was he pleased with the six year ramp to this?

    Did AD miss, Tell Putin after the election (reelection) I’ll be more flexible, comment? Did he think that cozying up to America’s enemies after reelection would only be an anti-Republican move? Didn’t AD see the anti-Jewish sentiment among many liberals including University profs. and big money donors (Soros) who funds many Democrat media projects? Maybe AD should try introducing a resolution into the Harvard faculty org. that denounces the Iran Deal. Let’s see how far that goes, Alan. I think he knows the answer.

    (Sigh) There are none so blind as those who choose not to see.

  4. Maynard says:

    It’s weirdly poetic. Dershowitz is the enabler of Obama, who in turn is the enabler of Iran. And the world may be destroyed because we’re all too damn dysfunctional to do anything about it.

  5. Alain41 says:

    Since Khomeini goes around saying, Death to America, and Obama just sloughs that off as not meaningful, I think Congressmen should testify into the record, Death to Iran. And then testify that he/she means it in just the same way that Khomeini does, so he expects an equivalent response from the President.

    There is always time to repent as long as there is life. Perhaps his Road to Damascus is the start of something big. Dershowitz is a brilliant, albeit politically nearsighted, man. He could be a potent ally. Developing … hoping.
