Ross, Dershowitz confident Obama has Israel’s back on Iran

WASHINGTON – Dennis Ross and Alan Dershowitz, high-profile supporters of both Israel and US President Barack Obama, told The Jerusalem Post Thursday they were confident the president would support Israel should it attack Iran in a last-ditch effort to stop a nuclear bomb, and that Obama would attack Iran himself if necessary.
They also took issue with Republican presidential challenger Mitt Romney’s recently uncovered statements at a closed-door fund-raiser in May about the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, where he said he doesn’t see much potential for a two-state solution.“You hope for some degree of stability, but you recognize that this is going to remain an unsolved problem,” Romney said, pointing to a lack of desire for peace on the part of Palestinians and the security risks Israel would have to take in any two-state deal.
