Jurist Alan Dershowitz, who is considered one of the world's foremost Legal experts, believes that an Israeli strike against Iran's nuclear facilities is legally justified, Yedioth Ahronoth reported Monday.


Speaking before a Miami conference, Dershowitz said that Iran has taken enough actions to justify an attack, and that military strike by Israel is "proactive self defense."
