US trying to save Zionist-Wahhabi axis in Middle East: Analyst

Keith Preston, the director of, made the remarks on Wednesday while discussing high-profile visits by American officials to Israel over the past few weeks.

Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff Joseph Dunford traveled to Israel on Monday to discuss military ties and address the Tel Aviv regime’s concerns about the situation in Syria and Egypt.

In April, US Secretary of Defense James Mattis visited Israel on his first trip as the Pentagon chief, where he reaffirmed Washington’s “absolute and unwavering commitment to Israel’s security.”

General Curtis Scaparrotti, commander of the US European Command, echoed the same stance when he visited the occupied Palestinian lands in March.

Trump is expected to visit Israel on May 22, after making a stop in Saudi Arabia during his first ever foreign trip as the US president.

Preston told that while the US has been helping terror groups to wreak havoc in the region over the years, it is now getting increasingly concerned about the consequences of the trend for its own allies, specially Israel.

“The United States has always expressed concern about terrorist activity in the Middle East but at the same time the United States has always tried to undermine independent regimes that would serve as a bulwark against terrorism,” he argued.
