Alan Dershowitz: Iran Deal Could Ignite Mideast Firestorm

If it turns out that the proposed accord with Iran allows Tehran to construct a nuclear bomb in 10 years by abiding by all the conditions until then it is sure to ignite a firestorm among surrounding nations, Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz said Friday on Newsmax TV’s “America’s Forum.”

“Israel, Saudi Arabia, the Emirates, Egypt, Jordan will not accept the deal and will say they’re not bound by the deal and they have an option to do what they think they have to do to protect the survival of their own countries,” he said.

Story continues below video.

Of course, the United States is also in danger because of the ICBM.”

The public needs clarification about whether it’s “a 10-year deal or a 15-year deal or a 25-year deal,” he continued.

“It sounds to me like it’s a 10-year deal, which if it’s complied with legally, Iran is entitled legally to start to develop a bomb in 10 years. If so, that’s not a good deal. It’s just a postponement, kicking the can down the road, and creating a game-changer, to quote the president’s own words.” Congress has two options to step in, he said.

“One is to simply not withdraw the sanctions. That doesn’t require any votes, that just requires nothing to be done. And the other is to try to pass a statute that requires a veto-proof majority, which probably is not available right now.”

Ted Cruz Uses The Galileo Gambit To Deny Global Warming

The word in Washingtonlately is that Senator Ted Cruzwho just announced that hes running for Presidentis supposed to be a very smart guy. Some of this comes from Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz,who said last yearthat Cruz was clearly among the top students at the prestigious Harvard Law School. Dershowitzis very liberal, while Cruz is very conservative, so one assumes that Dershowitz wouldnt say this if it werent true.

Perhaps Cruz was an excellent law student. But when it comes to science, Cruz is no whiz kid. On the contrary, he seems to be woefully ignorant. We know this because despite his lack of expertise, he doesnt hesitate to make sweeping pronouncements about scientific matters.

In just the past week, Cruz has weighed in on two major science issues, and hes been wrong on both. First, in an interview a few days agowith the Texas Tribune, Cruz stated that global warming isnt happening. This wasnt the first time hes made that claim, but this time he threw in whats known in skeptical circles as the Galileo gambit, a well-known ploy of conspiracy theorists. Hecompared his global warming denialism to Galileo thusly:

Today, the global warming alarmists are the equivalent of the flat-Earthers. It used to be [that] it is accepted scientific wisdom the Earth is flat, and this heretic named Galileo was branded a denier.

Cruz managed to get at least two things wrong in a single sentence here.

First, Galileo did not become famous for arguing against flat-Earthers: he argued that the Earth revolved around the sun (the heliocentric model of the solar system) rather than the sun revolving around the earth (the geocentric or Ptolemaic model, after the Greek philosopher Ptolemy).

Global temperature for the past 125 years. Its getting hot! Image credit: NASA and NOAA.

Second, Galileo was not a denialist, nor was he called one. He was not denying a vast array of scientific data to make his pointjust the opposite, in fact. The data showed that the Earth and other planets revolved around the sun, and the Catholic church (among other institutions) didnt want to believe it, and therefore they forced him to recant. The Church didnt call Galileo a denier.

Cruzs statement is not just wrong: its also arrogant. Cruz is comparing himself to Galileo, one of the greatest scientists in history, as if he (Cruz) were making a brave scientific stand against a dogmatic opponent. This is the crux of the Galileo gambit: the speaker claims to take a heroic stand against a powerful foe while defending the truth. Sorry, Senator Cruz: youre no Galileo. Not even a little bit.

And lets not ignore Cruzs scientific claim: that the Earth isnt getting warmer.Heres one of his quotes:

The unintended consequences of a nuclear deal with Iran

The clock is ticking. As the world waits to see if a deal emerges from the historic talks with Iran, questions are emerging about what will happen next.

Alan Dershowitz, Professor Emeritus at Harvard University is an outspoken critic of these negotiations.

I think it’s inevitable that this is going to push us closer to war. First of all Israel is not going to accept this deal – this deal endangers its very existence, Dershowitz said.

The Obama administration for months has been arguing the opposite – that a deal will prevent war. The U.S. and other allied nations are additionally pushing for this because it will give them the ability to observe nuclear activity within the country. Secretary of State John Kerry reiterated last week the current deal being negotiated is far better than no deal at all.

Iran would have the ability to go right back spinning its centrifuges and enriching to the degree they want, if they want, Sec. Kerry said in Washington before he left.

Critics of a deal argue it could permanently change things on a global scale in a way you couldn’t see, at least right away, like making the final agreement the gold standard for nuclear programs in the region and beyond.

Whoever wants nuclear energy in the middle east and elsewhere in the world will come to the international community and say why can’t i get what you conceded to Iran, said Emanuele Ottolenghi, Senior Fellow at The Foundation for Defense of Democracies.

Ottolenghi has been studying Iran for years and argued America’s standing in the region may take a hit as well.

You already see signs of US allies in the region openly challenging America’s judgment and wisdom and taking their own actions without consulting Washington.

Saudi Arabia’s action in Yemen without coordinating with President Obama could be a first sign of things to come.
