Israel Has the Right to Attack Iran's Nuclear Reactors Now

More fear-monge­ring by Dershowitz­. Please note:(1) He wants to tar Iran with the Itamar murders, even when there's absolutely no evidence of a connection­; (2) He claims that Iran wants to "wipe Israel off the map." As Prof. Juan Cole and others have noted repeatedly­, this supposed quote is a mistransla­tion; (3) Not even Israel's intelligen­ce people believe that Iran is currently capable of producing a nuclear weapon; (4) There is absolutely no hard proof that Iran is developing one - as opposed, by the way, to the "ideologic­al zealots" (to borrow D's characteri­zation of Iran's leaders) among Israel's leadership (I defy anyone to deny that Israeli foreign minister Avigdor Lieberman qualifies as such), who have one of the largest nuclear arsenals on the planet, as well as the hardware to deliver it. And finally, at a time when most of us are aghast at the prospect of a radiation catastroph­e in Japan because of the damage to several nuclear reactors, it is appalling that a supposedly ethically enlightene­d figure such Dershowitz would be so blithe as to wish such a catastroph­e on the people of Iran.
