Journalist Alison Weir says that the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) is a threat the world, Press TV reports.
“AIPAC is very dangerous because it is working on American foreign policy, and currently it is trying to push the United States into an outright attack on Iran or assisting an attack on Iran by Israel,” the executive director of the US website If Americans Knew said in an exclusive interview with Press TV.
Weir also believes that AIPAC is behind the United States’ decision to impose economic sanctions on Iran.
AIPAC is “a special interest lobby” in the United States, which is working on behalf of a foreign country -- Israel -- and not on behalf of Americans, or on behalf of peace or justice, she stated.
“The American media are extremely Israel-centric in their reports, leaving out a great deal of information that Americans need to know to have rational successful policies, which results in the ignorance of the American public about the Israeli lobby,” Weir said, adding that most US citizens do not even know what the Israeli lobby is.
AIPAC is the one of the most powerful lobbies in the United States. It works to influence US foreign and domestic policy for the interest of Israel.
