Europeans as sub-contractors for Israel

By Hassan El-Najjar

Al-Jazeerah, 10/22/03


The short but intensive talks in Tehran between the Iranian government and the European foreign ministers of Britain, France, and Germany is an important incident in international relations. What makes it even more important is the agreement between the two sides that Iran open its nuclear facilities for sudden inspection by IAEA.

Why does it matter for Europeans that Iran complies with the non-proliferation efforts of the international agency? Does Iran pose any threats to Europe? What is the real motives of these European ministers?

Iran does not pose any threats to any European country, even if it possesses nuclear weapons. Europeans have accepted the role of sub-contractors for the United States government. But why does it matter for the US if Iran possesses nuclear weapons or not?

Well, it is in the interest of Israel to be the only nuclear power in the Middle East in order to continue its hegemony in the region. The Israeli influence on the US government made the US to adopt Israeli policies.

All of this comes down to the existence of an oppressive, colonialist, and imperialist regime in Zionist Israel, with huge influence on the US and European governments.

In order to maintain the Israeli brutal occupation of Palestine and the control of the Arab Middle East, from the Nile to the Euphrates, wars are launched, countries are invaded, regimes are changed, and now pressures on Iran are applied to prevent any balance of power from happening.

Where are the European intellectuals? Where are the European independent powers? It’s disgraceful. Europeans have been reduced to be the sub-contractors of executing Israeli policies.
