The US government is not likely to refrain from backing Israel and Secretary of State John Kerry’s upcoming trip to Tel Aviv is not going to change that, says an American political analyst.
According to the State Department, the top US official is slated to visit al-Quds (Jerusalem) and Ramallah on Tuesday to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.
“John Kerry’s upcoming trip to Israel is just more of the same sort of charade that the United States has been conducting for years in the Middle East,” Mark Dankof, a former Senate candidate, told Press TV on Sunday.
He said Kerry will be trying to appear as an “honest broker of peace,” while the US “continues to aid and abet Israel and their criminal policies.”
“The fact is that the entire world has correctly figured out that the US intends to do nothing about Israel’s ongoing killing of Palestinians,” the analyst added.
More than 90 Palestinians have been killed at the hands of Israelis since the start of October.
Tensions have surged between Israelis and Palestinians in recent months after an Israeli imposition of restrictions on the entry of Palestinian worshipers into the al-Aqsa Mosque compound in East al-Quds (Jerusalem).
Dankof said Washington’s stance on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is not going to change and Israel will continue to receive billions in annual military aid.
“Israel is going to be getting in the next year, even more money from the United States than they have ever gotten before, totaling billions of dollars,” he noted. “Israel continues to get all kinds of armaments from the United States regardless of what they do domestically and internationally.”
Earlier this month, during a meeting with Netanyahu at the White House, President Barack Obama reportedly agreed with Tel Aviv’s request of an increase in the overall size of the current aid package from $3 billion to around $4.5 billion a year.
Dankof said there is good reason to believe that the United States is not likely to change its policies in offering unconditional support to Israel.
“There is a reason for not having any hope,” the analyst said. “And that is the Israeli lobby in the United States has a lock on the American elections, they have a lock on financing American elections, they have a lock on the American news media.”
Dankof also predicted that in 2016 Congress will be as pro-Israeli as ever and “probably more so.”
