Prof. Alan Dershowitz of Harvard Law School is a legendary defense lawyer, and the country’s foremost pro-Israel advocate. He is also a steadfast supporter of President Barack Obama. Breitbart News spoke to him in an exclusive interview today about the nomination of former Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-NE) as Secretary of Defense.

 

Sen. Hagel is controversial for his views on Israel, the Iraq War, Iran, and gays, among other issues. Dershowitz had, prior to Hagel’s nomination, urged President Obama publicly not to appoint Hagel to the position.

 

 

Breitbart News: Does the Hagel nomination represent a slap in the face to the pro-Israel community?

 

Dershowitz: No–I think it’s a heartfelt decision by the President, based on his personal relationship with Hagel. I think its a policy mistake. And I’m not the only person who thinks its a policy mistake. There are several people within the White House who urged him not to do it.

And I’m opposed to him for one primary reason, and that is [Hagel's appointment] is going to send the wrong message to the Iranian mullahs. They could easily misunderstand that the President is backing away from his commitment not to allow Iran to develop nuclear weapons, because Hagel has opposed keeping a military option on the table.

 

And it’s the wrong time to send mixed messages to those who are looking for an excuse for misunderstanding.
