US President Barak Obama (R) meets with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu on the sidelines of the United Nations meeting in New York, September 2011.
An Iranian lawmaker says both the US Democrat and Republican parties follow the Zionist lobby's decisions as having Israel’s support is precondition for becoming the US president.
“Due to the great influence of the Zionists in this country [the US], election candidates should prove their commitment to the occupying regime of al-Quds (Jerusalem) during election campaigns,” Alaeddin Boroujerdi said on Sunday.
Referring to the forthcoming US presidential election, the lawmaker who heads Iran Majlis (parliament) National Security and Foreign Policy Committee noted that despite Washington’s democratic appearance, all the US policies are guided, formulated, and limited to the Democrat and Republican parties.
Boroujerdi stated that both of the US political parties are following the Zionist lobby, adding that the triumph of either party in the presidential polls will lead to no change in Washington’s strategic positions despite their apparent political differences.
“All those who are nominated in the US presidential election should have the certificate of supporting the Zionist regime [of Israel] and some kind of subservience to Zionists in their resumes,” he said.
On September 6, a US presidential candidate for the American Third Position Party (A3P) said in an exclusive interview with Press TV that the Republican and Democratic contenders for the November presidential race are merely lap dogs for the Zionist lobbies in the United States.
Merlin Miller added that he firmly believes both major US political parties are controlled by the Zionist interests, and their candidates are basically picked by global elites long before the election.
He further noted that the whole presidential process in the United States is a sham, expressing regret that the American public is not aware of the reality.
Miller further stated that there is actually zero tolerance for anybody to be anti-Zionist in the US and personalities like film director Mel Gibson and CNN host Rick Sanchez were discredited simply for the sake of opposition to the actions of Israel and the Zionist lobbies.
