US supports Israel’s nuclear arsenal: Analyst

The United States continues to support the stockpiling of nuclear weapons by Israel because the Zionist regime is an “integral part” of Washington’s imperial system exerting hegemony in the Middle East, a geopolitical analyst in New York says.

“Israel knows that despite the fact that it won’t publically acknowledge or publicly recognize its own nuclear arsenal, but it is in fact quite dependent upon its nuclear arsenal,” said Eric Draitser, the founder of StopImperialism.com.

“The question really is why the United States continues to support Israel in that regard and I think the answer is almost self-evident because Israel is part and parcel of an imperial system that the United States has built over the last 70 years,” Draitser told Press TV on Saturday.

“Israel as the colonial entity in the region, is a fundamental part of that, it is part of the way in which the empire exerts hegemony in the Middle East, it’s part of the way in which it attempts to have full spectrum dominance over that region,” he added.
