Israel fears that Iran’s groundbreaking nuclear deal with the six world powers will pave the way for a peaceful Middle East that could end Zionism, an analyst says.

“Their real fear isn't Iran's nuclear program. The actual threat to Zionism is the prospect of a peaceful, prosperous, independent Middle East,” Dr. Kevin Barrett, the co-founder of the Muslim-Christian-Jewish Alliance, wrote in a column for Press TV on Saturday.

Barrett pointed to the recent threats made by the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu towards US President Barack Obama over the Geneva nuclear deal, saying the infuriated reaction shows how terrified Israel is of the West’s peace with Iran.

“If the Iran nuclear deal succeeds, and the West officially recognizes and accepts a genuinely independent, anti-Zionist Iran as the biggest single player in the Persian Gulf region, we will be living in a whole new world...a world in which Zionists do not dominate Western foreign policy. Such a world will have little room for an ever-expanding apartheid state of Greater Israel,” Barrett added.

The analyst noted that the prospect of a peaceful Middle East means that “Israel- a hyper-militarized parasitic entity making its living by squatting on stolen land and bleeding the American taxpayer - will fall further and further behind”.

Israel has been using Iran’s nuclear dispute with the west as a distraction “to keep stealing more and more Palestinian land,” Barrett said, adding with the nuclear deal in place “all eyes will turn toward the Zionists' genocidal atrocities in Occupied Palestine.”

On November 24, Iran and the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council - Russia, China, France, Britain and the US - plus Germany sealed an interim deal in the Swiss city of Geneva to lay the groundwork for the full resolution of the West’s decade-old dispute with Iran over its nuclear energy program.

In exchange for Iran’s confidence-building bid to limit certain aspects of its nuclear activities, the six world powers agreed to lift some of the existing sanctions against the Islamic Republic.
