US ties with Israel fundamentally shameful: Analyst

345823_Obama-NetanyahuA political analyst has described relations between the United States and the Israeli regime as “shameful,” as Tel Aviv continues to ‘defy’ the American nation’s interests, Press TV reports.

“Relationship between Israel and the United States is fundamentally a very shameful one because Israel over the years has repeatedly defied the wishes and the interests of the United States through its actions and through statements,” Mark Weber, with the Institute for Historical Review, told Press TV on Tuesday.

According to Tuesday’s reports, Israeli Minister of Military Affairs Moshe Yaalon insulted US Secretary of State John Kerry over his plan for the so-called peace process, saying Kerry’s proposed plan was not worth the paper it was written on. Yaalon also accused Kerry of being naïve, implying that he is a nuisance.

Kerry’s proposals for the so-called peace process include a security plan for the Jordan Valley in the occupied West Bank. Under this plan, Israeli forces must withdraw from the Jordan Valley. Tel Aviv is opposed to the proposal.

The analyst went on to say that Israel does not hesitate to humiliate the United States although the regime has always depended on Washington’s all-out support for its existence.

Weber added, however, that “the entire US support for Israel is not of authentic American interests, but the enormous power of what we call the Israel lobby… which has this enormous grip on America’s political life and cultural life.”

The Tel Aviv regime also continues to expand its illegal settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories although it has been under fire from the international community, including its own allies, over its expansionist policies.
