Entire US political establishment serving Israel: Analyst

The entire political establishment in the United States has been serving Israel for decades, an American scholar and political analyst says.

Dr. Kevin Barrett of Veterans Today, editor of We Are Not Charlie Hebdo and scholar of Arabic and Islamic studies, made the remarks in an interview with Press TV on Saturday while commenting on a statement by US Republican presidential hopeful Ted Cruz, who has that if elected, he will ignore Palestinians and serve Israel.

Speaking at a town hall meeting in South Carolina on Friday night, Cruz said, “Let me tell you this: As president, I have no intention of being neutral. As president, I will be unapologetically alongside the nation of Israel.”

Cruz also condemned his Republican rival Donald Trump for saying he would remain neutral in the decades-long Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Dr. Barrett said the news “should come as no surprise, because that’s precisely what virtually the entire political establishment here in the United States has been doing for many years, even for decades.”

“But that is really not very polite, certainly not to the Palestinians, who have been suffering from this Israeli expansionism, aggression and arguably genocide for so long, all paid for by American taxpayer dollars,” he added.

“Ted Cruz like the other Republican candidates for president seems to be in a competition with the others to see who can declare the most abject fealty and utter shameless subservience to the state of Israel — a foreign entity that is not even considered legitimate by any of its neighbors or virtually any of the people in the region,” the analyst stated.

“It’s a very bizarre situation. One is really at a loss in looking at history to try to find another situation in which the leaders and the prospective leaders of a great power were falling all over themselves, declaring that they were loyal to a smaller and extremely globally unpopular power across the seas. This is completely unprecedented,” he pointed out.

“And it’s not only unprecedented, it’s embarrassing. Just as an American I cannot believe that the people of this country have allowed their leaders to be hijacked by a foreign power in this way,” Dr. Barrett observed.

  1. @Blackheart: The Noahide Laws? Seven right? Where if you are a Christian your head goes off? or am I totally of the reservation here? Please correct me if I am wrong.


  2. Which is exactly why they want to abolish our right to bear arms! Bruce is correct regarding the agenda that was all laid out in the Protocols. In their own book.. they admit that they would be killed openly in the streets if all their activities and plans were to be exposed to the general population.

    The evil they have in mind for the world is much worse than simply robbing the goyim of their wealth.
    Do you believe it was an accident that their agents managed to get Noahide laws signed into US law?

    If their angel Hillary gets elected, this country will have much more in common with Gaza than the free nation it used to be when she’s done.

  3. easy to OWN all the “candidates” when you’re handed billions annually and spend a few million every few years to ensure (s)election is completely rigged. even easier when you control the big “news media” to present treasonous jackasses as SAINTS to the sheeple. every one of the so called “candidates” who get ANY help from we all know who, should be hanged.
