Israel owns and operates the foreign policy of the Unites States, according to Wayne Madsen, an investigative journalist in Washington.
Madsen, an author and columnist specializing in intelligence and international affairs, made the remarks in an interview with Press TV on Tuesday while commenting on the speech US Vice President Mike Pence delivered to the annual conference by the pro-Israel AIPAC lobby group on Monday.
In his address to the AIPAC, Pence hailed the bond between their country and Israel as “the best they have ever been.”
Pence celebrated the Trump administration’s efforts towards strengthening the United States’ relationship with Israel and commitment to fighting anti-Semitism around the world.
“We stand with Israel because that’s what the American people have always done,” he said. “We stand with Israel because her cause is our cause, her values are our values, her fight is our fight.”
Pence also threatened that the United States will withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal immediately, if it is not fixed.
“The Trump administration has given Israel everything it wants like recognition of Jerusalem [al-Quds] as Israel’s capital and moving the US embassy from Tel-Aviv to Jerusalem [al-Quds], either freezing or cutting off completely US assistance either directly or to the UN or to the Palestinians,” Madsen said.
“It involves increasing US military assistance to Israel, support for Israel’s involvement” in the Syrian crisis, he said. “So eventually Israel owns and operates the foreign policy of the Unites States so this has to be the happiest annual AIPAC conference in Washington in many years.”
“It just goes to show that Donald Trump is not only surrounded by pro-Israeli ideologues but many of the financial problems he is facing is because he has accepted loans from individuals who are hailed from Eastern Europe and Russia but also have Israeli citizenship,” Madsen concluded.
