International analyst weighs in on US defense of Israel

María Teresa Aya, international analyst from Noticia Caracol, recalled that “the United States has said that it rejects Iran’s attack last Saturday and claims Israel as a victim of that attack. “But he also told Israel not to attack directly or not to respond directly to Iran’s attack, that is, not to attack Iranian territory.”

Why wouldn’t the United States support a direct Israeli attack on Iran? “That would mean escalating the war and, most importantly, he does not want to put the American people in the crosshairs or become a military objective of the Iranians,” Aya said.

Asked about the upcoming trial of former President Donald Trump, Aya recalled that juries must be selected soon and that could last up to two weeks.

“It is a very important process because in the United States it is the 12 juries that are going to decide Trump’s fate and they will say if he is guilty or innocent, and it will not be the judge of Colombian origin Juan Merchán. The judge will simply pass a sentence if the jury finds him guilty. Having said that, There are more than 500 people who are potential jurors in this case and they have to answer a questionnaire of 42 questions, among which are whether they are capable of being impartial in Trump’s trial. It is estimated that the entire trial could last up to two months,” the analyst recalled.

Aya added that if Trump wins the next US elections, that could mean a radical change regarding the conflict in the Middle East.

“He has said that he is the most pro-Israel president the United States has had in its history. However, he has criticized the way the war has developed, since he considers that it has been unnecessary wear and tear on the part of the parties involved and that it could have been resolved very easily. Trump has said that if he is elected he will put great pressure on Israel to end the war quickly and victoriously.although he has not yet expressed how,” Aya concluded.
