Washington. N.Kazimova – APA. “The Iranian officials have made it clear that if Iranian nuclear facilities are attacked by anyone, the most clear and easy pro-Western target is right over their border. Especially, since Azerbaijan is one of the places where they attempted an attack on the Israeli embassy, on the US embassy, the US ambassador, the rabbi – they are constantly trying to attack there,” said Senior Lecturer, University of Haifa Dr. Brenda Shaffer in response to APA Washington correspondent’s question about security guarantees for Azerbaijan from Israel and the United States in case of an attack from Iran.

“It’s precisely a country that’s Muslim but pro-American and close to Israel – but also because there is a porous border, there are lots of people going back and forth, it’s easy to do an attack there.There are number of people trying to unravel Azerbaijan’s friendship with the United States and also with Israel. Much of it is propaganda. It’s easy in the age of internet to get almost any idea out there – just look at this Foreign Policy article. The author on his personal website is proud to say that he was an adviser to Yasser Arafat when he was in Beirut. I am telling you if Pentagon is going to leak something, and they do do that, they will give it to the New York Times or to the Washington Post, they are not going to leak it to the self-proclaimed adviser to Yasser Arafat. And yet, we all take it as a fact that Israel is using Azerbaijan as a base. Again this is all done just to tarnish the government, and to try to make them pay for this friendship with Israel,” he said.
