Skip to comments.Interview: Lawyer Seeks to Sue U.S. Over Iran Threats
Posted on 08/19/2008 3:35:51 PM PDT by Hadean
An American lawyer has offered to represent Iran in an international lawsuit against Israel and his own government in an effort to stop Washington and Tel Aviv from initiating further sanctions against Tehran.
Francis A. Boyle says following Washington's latest ultimatum to Tehran to freeze uranium enrichment within two weeks or face further isolation, Iran needs to act quickly.
At weekend talks in Geneva, the United States delivered what it describes as a "clear and simple message" that Iran must choose between cooperation and confrontation.
In an e-mail interview with Press TV, Boyle urged Iran to begin drafting lawsuits for presentation to the International Court of Justice (I.C.J.) in The Hague before the two-week ultimatum expires.
Precisely what would the charges against the U.S. and Israel be? What are you hoping to achieve?
About two years ago Iran contacted me about a proposal I had made to sue the United States, Israel and the EU-3 (Britain, France, and Germany) at the International Court of Justice in The Hague for their repeated and public threats to launch a military attack upon Iran over its undoubted right under the Nonproliferation Treaty to engage in nuclear reprocessing.
My proposal was that Iran should sue these states immediately, convene an Emergency Hearing by the World Court, and ask the Court to indicate provisional measures of protection on behalf of Iran against the United States, Israel, and the EU-3 -- basically a temporary restraining order.
I felt that these lawsuits would be able to prevent a military attack against Iran and also prevent the imposition of sanctions against Iran by the United Nations Security Council. In addition, by Iran submitting this entire matter to the World Court, it would make it clear to the entire world who the real culprits are here.

How about a two-fer? Take Carter with him.
Maybe he’s a Bircher working hard to change public opinion against the UN.
Carter and Ramsey Clark (his esteemed Attorney Corporal).
Useful idiot alert!
How do you get a law license without a rudimentary understanding of our separation of powers theory of government?
Lance that Boyle.....
This lawyer could be the Attorney General in an Obama administration.
Uh, but not the way Boyle thinks. What a loser. He would be showing that he and the Globalists of the Hague and its sympathizers here are the "real culprits."
Don’t we have Treason Laws anymore?
Disbar him, revoke his citizenship and ship him to Iran to practice
