Israel seeks destruction of Iran: Mark Glenn

Fearing the independence and stability of the Islamic Republic in the Middle East, the Israeli regime seeks Iran’s “destruction,” a political commentator tells Press TV.

In an interview with Press TV on Thursday, Mark Glenn, an American author and journalist, described Iran as the “only stable” Middle Eastern country, which as opposed to other regional states, is not dependant on the United States and Israel “for money and for military supplies.”

Glenn argued that the Tel Aviv regime “would still be calling for Iran’s destruction” even if Tehran did not have a nuclear energy program, which Israel, the US, and some of their allies claim to include a non-civilian component. Iran has frequently rejected the allegation as groundless.

The analyst added that Israel and its Arab allies in the region, particularly Saudi Arabia, “have a vested interest…in making sure that Iran does not become the powerhouse of the Middle East.”

Israel is furious at the recent nuclear talks held between Iran and the six world powers – the US, Britain, Russia, China, France and Germany – in Geneva, Switzerland. The Zionist regime is, therefore, spearheading a campaign to block any accord between Iran and the Sextet over Tehran’s nuclear energy program.

On Thursday, Hezbollah Secretary-General Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah said Israel and some Arab countries are against any nuclear deal between Iran and the six powers, adding that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin “Netanyahu is doing everything he can to make the Iranian nuclear negotiations with the P5+1 countries fail.”

Glenn went on to say that the Israeli regime wants to keep the countries in the region “in a state of instability and chaos” since it is the only way it can survive.
