A political analyst says the United States policies towards Iran, including Washington’s approach regarding the Iranian nuclear energy program, are precisely dictated by the US-based Zionist lobby of Israel.
“Washington is under the diabolical spell of the Zionists and…every step they take is in fact weighed and decided by the Zionist lobby within the US ruling system, and as the Persian saying goes, they are not even allowed to drink water without their [Zionists] permission,” wrote Dr. Ismail Salami, an author and political analyst, in an article published on Press TV’s website on Saturday.
Referring to the US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s recent remarks that “All of our sanctions [against the Islamic Republic] will remain in place,” he added that “no matter how hard Tehran tries to cast aside the US-manufactured doubts and fears concerning Iran nuclear energy program, Washington will never relinquish its Zionist-friendly anti-Iran policies.

also pointed to the US Undersecretary of State for Political Affairs Wendy Sherman’s hasty trip to Israel after the May 23-24 talks between Iran and the P5+1 group of world powers on Tehran’s nuclear energy program “to brief the Israeli officials on the new nuclear developments and ‘reaffirm our [US] unshakeable commitment to Israel's security.’”
However, “So overpowering and biting was the feeling of anger in the Zionist officials that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak declined to receive the top negotiator on Iran for reasons clearly discernible to the mortified US negotiator and to Washington as well,” he said.
Salami highlighted the rift within the American establishment over the Iranian nuclear activities, distinguishing one group which favors “resolving” the dispute over Iran's nuclear energy program and another which seeks to “politicize” the issue in favor of “the Zionist regime.”
The first group, he said, knows that “there is no diversion towards military use in the country’s nuclear program on the strength of the reports provided by the intelligence agencies in the US,” which is interestingly the reason it “is held in extreme Zionist contempt.”
According to Los Angeles Times
on February 23, the most recent US National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) report, which “represents the consensus of 16 US intelligence agencies,” and was published this year, confirmed with “high confidence” the peaceful nature of Iran’s nuclear program.
The second group, however, “constitutes those who are at the becks and calls of the Zionists,” the expert noted. These, he said, “politicize Iran nuclear energy program and make every financial, political and security effort to safeguard the interests of the Zionist regime i.e. downgrading or even violating Iran’s inalienable right to the civilian use of nuclear energy.”

finally pointed to “desperate” Israeli attempts to misrepresent the Iranian peaceful nuclear activities and portray Iran as a “nuclear threat” so that it can persuade its “lapdog Washington” into enforcing further sanctions on the country.
“As long as Israel breathes down Washington’s neck, there is little hope the nuclear dispute will be resolved once and for all; and the future talks will eventually enter into infinite loop conditions.”
