Michael Springmann

An American author and former diplomat from Washington condemned the Tel Aviv regime as “extremist” and “apartheid” and said Israel that fears the continuation of the mass protests along the Gaza border may wage another war on the enclave.

“Another war between Hamas and Israel is, indeed, likely,” Michael Springmann, the former head of the American visa bureau in Saudi Arabia, said in an interview with the Tasnim News Agency.

“Extremist, apartheid Israel evidently fears the continuation of the highly-visible Great March of Return protests,” he said, adding, “This is reflected in Netanyahu’s comments about the possibility of another military operation in Gaza.”

J. Michael Springmann served in the US government as a diplomat with the State Department’s Foreign Service, with postings in Germany, India, and Saudi Arabia. He left federal service and currently practices law in the Washington, DC, area. Springmann’s works and interviews have been published in numerous foreign policy publications, including Covert Action Quarterly, Unclassified, Global Outlook, the Public Record, OpEdNews, Global Research and Foreign Policy Journal.
