Dr. Jones says opposing Iran nuclear talks by Republicans showed that the Republican Party is controlled by the Israel lobby.

Editor of Culture Wars magazine Dr. E. Michael Jones says opposing Iran nuclear negotiations by Republicans showed that the Republican Party is totally controlled by the Israel lobby.

“Every single candidate now of the Republican Party is a total pawn of the Israel lobby. It’s a bad news for America,” Jones said in a phone interview with Press TV on Sunday.

A new report revealed that Republican opponents of a framework agreement with Iran received millions in campaign donations in 2014 from pro-Israel billionaires and other influential American donors.

Citing data compiled by the Center for Responsive Politics, the New York Times reported Republicans now in control of both chambers of US Congress, are more ardently pro-Israel than ever before as they collected more money during the 2014 election from individuals and political action committees considered pro-Israel than their Democratic counterparts.

The GOP opponents of the nuclear talks are echoing concerns by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who warned American lawmakers in a congressional address early last month that the White House was negotiating “a very bad deal” with Iran.

Dr. Jones said President Barack Obama went ahead and negotiated a deal with Iran in spite of all opposition.

“The bad news is the Republican Party is totally controlled by the Israel lobby, but the good news is that because of that the support for Israel has become a partisan issue and talk about support of Israel is now part of the debate in a way that wasn’t before this Iran agreement,” he said.

A landmark framework agreement was reached between Iran and the P5+1 group – the US, Britain, France, China, Russia and Germany – in Switzerland on April 2.

The two sides issued a joint statement at the end of eight days of nuclear negotiations in the Swiss city of Lausanne on Thursday. They will work to draw up a final accord by the end of the June 30 deadline.
