A political commentator says the Israeli regime’s war on Palestine is waged on “behalf of the US corporate ruling class.”
Bill Dores made the comments in an interview with Press TV on Wednesday as Tel Aviv continued crackdown on Palestinians’ demand for an end to land grab by the Zionist regime.
“Washington’s expression of ‘concern’ over the crimes being committed against the people of Jerusalem (al-Ques) is sheer hypocrisy’” the analyst said. “It is hypocrisy because the racist Israeli state is completely funded by the United States, from the teargas and sound bombs Israeli cops fire at people praying in the holy mosque of al-Aqsa to the planes and missiles murdering Palestinian children in Gaza, they are all made in the USA and supplied by for free to Israeli police and war machine.”
The latest round of tensions have spiked since the beginning of the holy month of Ramadan, when the Israeli regime frequently steps up aggression in the face of US inaction.
“US and Israeli cops train together. Israeli pilots train in the United States. Many of the bigoted settlers rampaging in East Jerusalem (al-Quds) and stealing Palestinian families homes are US citizens. US citizens freely serve in the Israeli occupation forces,” Dores explained.
At the core of the latest round of aggression is the planned forced expulsions of Palestinians by illegal Israeli settlers, looking to take over Palestinian lands.
Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei said Tuesday that the Zionist regime of Israel only “understands the language of force,” urging Palestinians to grow in power and resistance capacity to confront the enemy.
Dores reacted to the Leader’s remarks by asserting that, “The settlers’ chants of ‘Death to Arabs’ and ‘We’ll burn your village down,’ reflect the very nature of” Israel.
More than 600,000 Israelis live in over 230 illegal settlements built since the 1967 Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories of the West Bank and East Jerusalem al-Quds.
All Israeli settlements are illegal under international law and the UN Security Council has condemned Israel’s settlement activities in the occupied territories in several resolutions.
The political commentator further concluded that, “The way to stop the violence in Palestine is to end all forms of US aid, all arms and dollars, to the racist entity that has been erected on stolen Palestinian land. That includes canceling the US-Israeli trade agreement.”
