This week on Hemispheres, Middle East Dialogues Kazerooni and Prince discuss the Israeli targeted assassinations of Iranian nuclear scientists. Effective Israeli deterrent, or strategic waste of time?

Why have some Israeli assassinations of incipient Middle Eastern nuclear programs “worked”, ie, the programs were eliminated, (Egupt, Iraq, Libya, Syria) but the Iranian program is going ahead full steam despite repeated efforts to neutralize it militarily?

Recently the New York Times ran a major piece on the Israeli targeted assassination of Iranian nuclear scientists program entitled “The Scientist and the A.I.-Assisted, Remote-Controll Killing Machines“. In fact, since WWII, Israel has assassinated more people than any other country in the Western world, be they nuclear scientists or not. In many cases in the past, it could be said that “they work” but more recently, with Iran, they have not worked at all to derail Teheran’s nuclear energy program. Why did these assassinations – nothing short of political murders – work in the past but seem to fail in their objective today?
That and more – KGNU, Hemispheres, Middle East Dialogues – Stay tuned.
