Mohsen Abdelmoumen: Can we say that the United States is a sovereign State when we see the historical weight of the Zionist lobby on its policy decision?

Alison Weir: Adherents of political Zionism have influenced U.S. policies for decades and have often played a central role in elections. Despite this, Americans will be able to forge independent policies when enough people become aware of the facts and demand different policies. Lire la suite »

Mohsen Abdelmoumen: You studied the Libyan chaos case, how do you envisage the exit of crisis in this country?

Eric Draitser: Unfortunately there is no real solution to the chaos in Libya in the near future. The NATO terrorist war on that country effectively destroyed all political, economic, and social institutions such that any future government would have to spend tremendous time and resources rebuilding the country from the ground up. Considering that the so called « government » in Libya is little more than a political symbol rather than an effective state leadership, it is unlikely that there can be any concerted, cohesive strategy to rebuild the country and its institutions.

This is a continuation of a long, unjust and very ugly tradition within the country. Generations ago, blacks were lynched (hung) in the southern part of the U.S. for no other reason than for being black. These lynchings were attended by large crowds who seemed to see these murders as entertainment. No one was ever convicted for any of these horrendous crimes. Lire la suite »

Mohsen Abdelmoumen: How do you analyze the rapprochement between the United States and Iran, with an agreement on the Iranian nuclear?

The rapprochement between the US and Iran is merely that, with the reins on Iran being firmly held by means of threatened ongoing sanctions were Iran to go slow on its agreement. While it has been remarkable to get US and Iranian diplomats at the same table openly, a more hawkish Republic administration, assuming the Democrats do not win in 2016, could see a reversal of any gains.  This is evident by such things as ‘Cotton Letter’ signed by 47 Republican members of Congress.
