While the western allies of WW2 were commemorating D Day (in absence of Russia that had a major role in ending the German Nazi adventure), another dramatic event concerning US service men was once again eluded, waking us up to the shocking reality of the behavior of the State of Israel towards the world's leading power: The United States of America.
A former US Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Economic Policy addresses this realty. He has a statement and asks a question. While analyzing shameful facts for the USA, he backs his statement and illustrates his question.
Statement: “All who discount the influence of Israel on the US government are ignorant fools”.
Question: “We hear every day that 'Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East,' but is Israel a democracy or a dictatorship?”
While the Middle East is living crucial moments of its history and that attempts to carve its future are done by USA and Israel, it is good to know about the relation and the spirit of these two partners and how far Israel has influenced American policy in this region (see article "An Israeli Double-Feature: 52nd Anniversary of Israel’s Attack on the USS Liberty" by Paul Craig Roberts in Information Clearing House, 09.06.2019).
