US political analyst believes Israel seeks to launch new wars

Dec 29, 2011 12:00 AM

An American political analyst has described Israeli regime as a warmongering state that constantly looks for new enemies to conquer.
“Israel is a dysfunctional, Spartan military state that cannot hold itself together unless it finds itself at war with someone,” said Mark Glenn. He was making reference to Israeli regime recent threat to launch another all-out war on the Gaza Strip.

Marking the third anniversary of Israel's deadly attack on Gaza, the chief of staff of the Israeli military, Lt. General Benny Gantz, said that Tel Aviv will ''sooner or later'' need to launch a large-scale operation against Hamas, the democratically-elected ruler of Gaza because Tel Aviv is losing its grip on the coastal strip.
Glenn further dismissed the idea that the recent revolutions in North African and Middle East countries have made the Zionist regime weaker due to the fact that Tel Aviv needs war “to hold together what is an organically fractured society”.

He went on to say that the Israeli Regime “is an empire” and is not “satisfied with possessing a small sliver of land on the Eastern shores of the Mediterranean”. The American analyst added that the only way for Tel Aviv to turn into a dominant global power is to keep North African and Middle East countries destabilized.
“War is an excellent way of achieving this destabilization,” Glenn further stated.

The Israeli regime waged a 22-day Christmas war on the densely populated coastal sliver in 2008 left more than 1,400 Palestinians dead including at least 300 children.
The offensive also destroyed 4,000 houses and devastated a large portion of infrastructures in the blockaded strip. Israeli military forces also targeted UN-run schools and centres.

More than 50,000 people were also displaced as a result of the three-week war.
Tel Aviv also used internationally-banned weapons, including white phosphorus bombs, against the Gazans during the three-week war.
