A political analyst says the ongoing US-led “war on terror” is a policy imposed by Israel on the United States.
“In fact, the whole “war on terror” - in reality, a war on Islam - is an Israeli fabrication,” Kevin Barrett wrote in a column for Press TV.
He noted that the US hostility against the Islamic Republic is an indication of “a self-destructive policy imposed on America by Israel”.
“Iran will never stop supporting the Palestinians in their struggle against genocide in the Occupied Palestine. And that isn’t acceptable to Israel - which owns and runs the US government,” he wrote.
Barrett noted that the US has even been forced by the Zionist regime to bully Iran.
Separately, he said American President Barack Obama’s nominee for Secretary of Defense, Chuck Hagel, threatens Israel’s sovereignty over the United States.
“The Israelis correctly see that their ownership of the US government is in jeopardy. Their hysterical opposition to Hagel is a sign of desperation,” Barrett wrote.
Hagel sent shockwaves through the Zionist lobby in the US when he openly said in a 2008 interview, “The Jewish lobby intimidates a lot of people up here…. I’m not an Israeli senator. I’m a United States senator.”
In reaction, 40 allegedly American Senators blocked Hagel’s nomination with a filibuster.
“When another Hagel vote happens next week, will the treasonous Senators from Israel win again? Or will the Senators from America prevail?” asks Barrett.
“Regardless of whether Hagel is ultimately confirmed, the battle between the Senators from Israel and the Senators from America is educating the American people about who really runs their country,” concluded Barrett.
