The US government has assigned the Israeli regime the mission of toppling all democratically-elected governments in the Middle East, an analyst tells Press TV.
“US interests in the region are carried out by the Israeli government and the US mission in the region…is to overthrow all of the independent governments that broke themselves from colonial and imperialist domination over the decades,” Michael Prysner told Press TV in an interview.
He said the main countries targeted by the United States and the Zionist regime are Syria, Iraq and Iran.
“Any country that has stood up and said, ‘We will not follow dictates from Washington. We will not follow the dictates of the US empire,’ they are targeted for destruction,” said Prysner.
He added that the Israeli regime would be “very, very happy to see” the destruction of Syria, adding that the ongoing “bombings” in that country are all in “Israel’s interest.”
“The destruction of Syria and the destruction of the Syrian state absolutely is in the interest of the United States and its allies, in particular Israel, because it is part of the Western domination of the entire region,” said Prysner.
However, the analyst noted, “monarch-type dictatorships” in the Persian Gulf Arab countries like Saudi Arabia and Qatar are all close allies of “Western imperialism.”
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday threatened that Israel would carry out more assaults against Syria, following recent airstrikes and shelling against targets inside the Arab country.
Syria has slammed Israel’s deadly attacks from the air and the ground as a “blatant violation” of its territory and urged the United Nations to condemn the aggression.
The Israeli attacks came hours after the death of an Israeli teenager in the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights. Israeli forces claimed the death was apparently caused by a missile fired from Syria.
