Silly Question

Do Israel lobbyists, I wonder, ever pause to think before writing things like this:

"[Iran is] a veteran flouter of clear legal obligations with a long history of deliberating [sic] using negotiations merely to buy time." (Pause for a rethink will help West avoid being sold a pup, Colin Rubenstein*, The Australian, 13/11/13)

[*Executive director of the Australia/Israel & Jewish Affairs Council (AIJAC).]

"Deliberating" muddying of concepts (Iran flouts 'clear legal obligations' - which ones?) leads to sloppy use of language.
