A political analyst says the United States will continue its aggressive foreign policy under the Israeli influence if the American people do not stand up against it.


“There is going to be no significant alternation of the American foreign policy until the American people stand up and say that we have had enough of letting Israel and international banks and oil consortiums control the foreign policy of this country and continue to put us more deeply into debt and involve us more in military situations that do not involve the national security of the United States,” said Mark Dankof.

The American analyst also referred to the US Vice President Joe Biden’s offer of direct talks with Iran, saying that the offer cannot be called a “sincere” move considering all kinds of pressures that Washington has been exerting on the Iranians.

“The United States has been engaged ongoingly in a series of acts of war up to this point against the Iranian government that are being facilitated by the Israeli lobby,” Dankof said.

“The United States is basically saying that when it comes to the rules that govern international conduct, Iran must conform to all of these international inspections… while Israel can do anything that it wants,” he added.

At the 49th annual Munich Security Conference in Germany on February 2, Biden said Washington was ready to hold direct talks with Iran over the country’s nuclear energy program.

In a strong response, the Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei lashed out at the idea of any talks with the United States under pressure and threats.

The US, Israel and their allies accuse Iran of pursuing non-civilian objectives in its nuclear energy program. Washington and the European Union have used the allegation as a pretext to impose sanctions against the Islamic Republic, while Israel has repeatedly threatened Iran with a military strike.

Iran has vehemently rejected the allegations, arguing that as a signatory to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and a member of the International Atomic Energy Agency, it is entitled to develop and acquire nuclear technology for peaceful purposes.
