U.S. must not kowtow to Israel [Letter]

December 25, 2013

The article, "Bipartisan group backs new Iran sanction threat" (Dec. 20), describes how some U.S. senators are trying to destroy the nuclear peace deal with Iran. Those senators mentioned, Charles Schumer, Robert Menendez and Mark Kirk, are all known Israel-firsters, always willing to put the interests of Israel ahead of America's. Senator Kirk even admitted that he has been getting his information on Iran from the Israeli government and not from U.S. intelligence.

Even worse, the proposed legislation calls for the U.S. to "stand with Israel" if Israel "is compelled to take military action in legitimate self-defense against Iran's nuclear weapons program." This is not only dangerous but treasonous that we would allow a foreign country to drag us into a war that was not in our national interest.

The U.S. needs to dialogue and trade with Iran, while ending our "special relationship" with the warmongering nation of Israel.
