US using Israel to spread imperialism: Analyst
August 31, 2016
The United States government uses Israel to spread its imperialist agenda across the world, says a political commentator in Boston, Massachusetts.
Daniel Patrick Welch made the comments on Wednesday, when asked about his views on America’s attempts to disrupt the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel.
Lawmakers in the US state of California passed a law on Tuesday that aims to punish companies partaking in the boycott campaign.
The legislation, which was approved on Tuesday, seeks to prevent state government agencies from awarding contracts of $100,000 or more to companies that support the BDS.
“This is just the latest example of how far the US state will go to protect its pet project,” Welch told Press TV.
“You have to remember that Israel is basically a forward-positioned aircraft carrier, armed and dangerous, to project imperialist white supremacy across the Middle East and they are not going to let go of that project for anything,” he added.
