There is a growing movement in the United States to normalize relations with Iran, a political commentator says.
“The economic benefits of doing so would be wonderful for both the Iranian people and for the American people, it would help stimulate both of our economies,” said Mike Harris, a Financial Editor at Veterans Today.
“Many in the world are aware that the US economy has been faltering for some time,”
“Normalizing relationships with Iran would increase the amount of oil available in the global supply, resulting in reduced prices around the world, to the benefit of everyone.”
However, Israel is struggling to block potential progress in US-Iran ties and prevent any swift easing of economic sanctions on Tehran, highlighting the depth of Israel’s influence on the American political system.
Obama changed his conciliatory tone toward Iran after a meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the White House and once again threatened Iran with military action.
Influential pro-Israel pressure groups like AIPAC in the United States actively work to steer US foreign policy in favor of Israel.
“When we talk about the issue of Israeli influence in US government and particularly in US foreign policy, it is so out of control that it’s to the point where many of our US politicians are committing treason against their own country in order to favor Israel,” Harris said.
“Israel is the only country in the Middle East that is nuclear armed and we have to disarm Israel if you want a lasting peace in the Middle East,” he added.
“What I would recommend would be a military occupation (of Israel) by the US and by the UN for the purpose of disarming Israel’s nuclear arsenal. Israel is the only country in the world that has not signed the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT). Israel is a criminal and rogue state.”
