    Israel is America’s “most dangerous enemy” that spies on US officials in order to “control” and blackmail them, forcing American politicians to “bow before Israel,” a US activist and commentator says.



    Mark Glenn, a writer and co-founder of the Crescent and Cross Solidarity Movement, an interfaith forum dedicated to uniting Muslims and Christians against Zionists, made these remarks in a phone interview with Press TV on Sunday.



    A recent report shows Israel spied on US Secretary of State John Kerry last year during failed talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority.

    Glenn said that this is “something Israel has always done.”



    According to German weekly Der Spiegel, Israelis and at least one other secret service eavesdropped on Kerry’s phone conversations as he tried to resume the so-called peace talks last year.



    “This is how Israel controls American politicians...

    [and] maneuvers American foreign policy in directions that are favorable to her,” Glenn said.



    “Israel spies on our elected officials and uses that information against them, particularly information that is embarrassing or possibly even incriminating,” he noted.

    Israel is the “most dangerous enemy” that the US and the whole world has ever faced, Glenn added.



    He stated the United States is not the superpower or free country that many Americans would like to believe “because at the end of the day, we have politicians who would bow before Israel because they fear the information that Israel’s intelligence services have gathered on them.”



    The eavesdropping report was published amid another bloody day in Gaza, where an Israeli airstrike targeted a United Nations school sheltering about 3,000 displaced Palestinians, leaving at least 10 people dead and about 30 others injured.



    This was the third time in 10 days that a UN school has been targeted by the Zionist forces in their nearly month-long offensive against the besieged Gaza Strip that has caused the death of over 1,850 Palestinians and injured more than 9,300.



    UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon denounced the shelling of the school as "a moral outrage and a criminal act," adding, "This madness must stop." The US also strongly condemned the airstrike, saying it is “appalled” by the “disgraceful” attack.
