Press TV has interviewed Dr. David Duke, former member of US House of Representatives, Louisiana about the influence of Israel on American policy and how Zionism influences media, banking and politics.
What follows is an approximate transcript of the interview.
Press TV: First of all I’d like to get your thoughts on the AIPAC’s efforts to implement more sanctions on Iran and also the significance that a US Rabbi is criticizing AIPAC for what he calls their strong-arming tactics.
Duke: First off, good morning to you and good morning to the people of Iran and around the world in our efforts to stop this insane Zionist war – one more Zionist war just like Afghanistan, just like Iraq and just as they’ve done against Lebanon, as they’ve done against the Palestinian people.
Obviously AIPAC is an organization that is a Zionist organization that’s working for the interest of Israel and for the radical Jews who control the Jewish community in America. There are a few dissenting Jews, which we should be very happy for and I’m glad there are some Jews there to challenge some issues.
But every major Jewish organization in the United State of America is pushing for war and sanctions against your country (Iran) when the true nuclear rogue state of course is Israel and Israel is a real threat to world peace.
It’s just insane… the American intelligence community in fact we did a national intelligence estimate of leading intelligence organizations in the United States of America: the CIA, all the national security agencies, organizations in our country and they themselves looked at the evidence and said that Iran has no program for building a nuclear weapon whatsoever. So, why do we have sanctions? The state that should be sanctioned is Israel.
At least we have a few Jewish dissenters – Jewish dissenters get some publicity, but I hope that Iran and the world doesn’t misunderstand the fact that the Jewish community, the organized Jewish community – that doesn’t mean every Jew – but the organized Jewish community is very, very strongly pushing for war – a war that would be catastrophic for the people of Iran and around the world.
I document this by the way on my website davidduke.com and we have the evidence and the documents on this that are fully available for anyone around the world to read. Continues here with video
