( 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 a 10-percent chance of changing the Iranian leadership’s attitude on its nuclear program.

“But 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.
