Political activist Gilad Atzmon believes that Washington would pay a heavy price over its involvement in supporting Israeli attacks against the people of Gaza.
"It is very clear to me that there are some forces in Israel that are pushing for a ground invasion and total distruction of the Gazans and the Gaza people," he told Press TV's U.S. Desk in a phone interview on Tuesday.
"America is in a very confusing situation and it pays a heavy price for this involvement," Atzmon added.
The United States continues to blindly support Israel even as it bombards Gaza's virtually defenseless population and falsely claims it is acting in self-defense.
The White House has explicitly ignored the chronology of events so as to conform to Israel's false claims to be acting in self-defense. The Obama administration reiterated that "Israel has the right to defend itself".
No mention was made of whether or not Gazans have a right to protect themselves, not just from Israeli bombardments but near daily artillery fire into Gaza and imposition of a harsh, brutal economic blockade that has been impoverishing Palestinians in a cruel form of collective punishment.
