Trump getting misinformation about Iran from fanatical Zionists


Press TV

US President Donald Trump is receiving misinformation about Iran from fanatical Zionists, who want a new military conflict in the Middle East, says a commentator.

President Trump told reporters at the White House on Thursday that he would not rule out the possibility of a military action against Iran.

Author and Middle East expert Kevin Barrett told Press TV on Friday that the US president listens to anti-Iran claims made by some pro-Zionist elements.

“Trump is owned by” some elements like Jared Kushner, his senior adviser and son-in-law, and “they have his ear,” Barrett said.

There is “the extremist fanatical terror-loving Zionist, the most extreme radical fringe in Israel and Trump is getting his misinformation from those people,” he said.

“So, there is a problem. Trump is surrounded by very dangerous people who would like nothing better than a big Middle East war,” the author added.

Barrett, however, said the possibility of a war between the United States and Iran is low.

US officials, he said, “love to say all options are on the table” but “all of the experts who have run simulations of a war between the US and Iran say that if we create great suffering in Iran, the US would lose strategically.”

  1. Salam and thanks, Kevin… Ramadan Mubarak… every time we think a new administration will be less free from the toxic influence of Zionism and Israel we get more surprises. Bolton is lining up the US and his Arab allies in another Israeli War, with American blood and Arab money. How can the people in the US or the Arab world trust these lies?

  2. All it will take is one very brave and courageous person, who has power and respect in the US, to explain in a very public way how the US does and has done Israel’s bidding, and how disastrous it has been for the United States as a country. Not only for its citizens, but also for its reputation around the world which has become toxic. Ilan Omar did try but she was immediately shut down and out came the usual smears of her being an anti-semite. Had a white Christian politician said what she had, they would no longer be in politics. The simple fact that she was a woman and a Muslim is what spared her.

    There is just too much information out there for people to find the truth out for themselves should they desire.
