An American columnist says House Majority Leader Eric Cantor is very close to the Israel lobby in order to put more pressure on lawmakers on Iran sanctions legislation.

“Eric Cantor has been very close to the Israeli lobby in Congress,” managing editor at VT Jim W. Dean told Press TV on Tuesday.

“By very close what we mean is they can actually hand certain congressmen statements that they want them to read and they will absolutely do it,” he added.

On Monday, Cantor criticized President Barack Obama’s foreign policy and called for further sanctions against Iran.

Cantor said the United States should “lay the groundwork now for additional sanctions” in the event that Iran violates an interim nuclear agreement reached last year.

He was referring to the sanctions bill introduced by Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Robert Menendez and Senator Mark Kirk in December.

The AIPAC has been vigorously trying to convince US senators to approve the legislation against Iran in order to derail nuclear talks, but America’s largest pro-Israel lobby group has failed so far.

Dean also noted that the AIPAC “has pretty much been defeated on this. They didn’t have their votes.”

The White House has repeatedly announced that it is against fresh sanctions while the talks are under way.
