Gareth Porter is an award-winning independent journalist and historian.
This is the fourth part in a series of interviews on Porter’s new bookÂ Manufactured Crisis: The Untold Story of the Iran Nuclear Scare. Porter discusses how Israeli Prime Minister Yizhak Rabin created an Iranian nuclear bogeyman to give himself political cover for negotiations with the PLO; Iran’s long-range (conventional) missile development program for deterring an Israeli attack; Netanyahu’s initial dovishness on Iran in his first stint as Prime Minister; and how the missile defense lobby influenced US and Israeli policy on Iran.
