An Israeli attorney is threatening a lawsuit unless the State of New Jersey fires poet laureate Amiri Baraka, who wrote a poem insinuating that Israel knew in advance of the Sept. 11 attacks. Nitsana Darshan-Leitner, who says she will sue both Baraka and the state of New Jersey, represents five Israelis who were detained by U.S. officials for visa violations following Sept. 11.
