Tony Blair: Ties between Gulf and Israel are ‘game changer’

MEMO | June 3, 2020

Tony Blair has cast doubt over the chance of a Palestinian state ever emerging in an interview with a Rabbi from the United Synagogue, a union of British Orthodox Jewish synagogues, representing the central Orthodox movement in Judaism.

During the online interview reported in the Jewish Chronicle the former British prime minister spoke gushingly about relations between Israel and the Gulf states. “That is the single biggest game-changer for the Middle East”, Blair is reported saying while describing the relationship as ”the biggest reason for hope in the Middle East.”

His optimistic reading of the region’s future however did not extend to the Palestinians. Blair, who was appointed special envoy of the Quartet – a foursome of nations and international and supranational entities involved in mediating the Israeli-Palestinian peace process – all but gave up on any hope of a Palestinian state emerging with Israel’s ongoing annexation.

”It was very difficult to see how a Palestinian state survives that,” said Blair in reference to Israel’s planned annexation of the occupied West Bank and the Jordan Valley in contravention of international law.

During the interview Blair said that he had spent the last few years working on strengthening ties between Israel and the Gulf states, which he said was not purely a “security relationship”.

“Yes it’s true they both have security interests in common.  They are both worried about Iran,” said Blair before explaining a new, emerging leadership in the region found common alliance with Israel. “That is the single biggest game-changer for the Middle East,” Blair argued.

Blair’s term as the Middle East envoy has been heavily criticised, and this latest remark is likely to be further confirmation that the former prime minister, who many consider to be a war criminal over his role in the invasion of Iraq, was never interested in seeking justice for the Palestinians.

Critics accuse Blair of constantly pandering to the wishes of Israel. In one instance Palestinian officials said: “Tony Blair shouldn’t take it personally, but he should pack up his desk at the Office of the Quartet Representative in Jerusalem and go home,” adding his job, and the body he represents, are “useless, useless, useless”.

  1. Blair, like “Dubya” Bush(and Australia’s idiot PM John Howard) are War Criminals who co-operated in the destruction of Iraq, based on ridiculous propaganda that Iraq had “Weapons of Mass Destruction” which were NEVER FOUND.
    Saddam Hussein was murdered by this “Coalition of the Willing” and Iraq today is occupied illegally by the USA.
    Blair should be ashamed to show his evil face in public…..He’s a disgrace to “Great” Britain…….

  2. Yes, Blair is a War Criminal escaping justice so far, largely owing to Zionists orchestrating his part in invading Iraq and murdering Saddam. Mossad plotted in 1986 [summarizing]: “When we have finished with Qaddafy… Saddam is our next target.” and “We will get the US Army to destroy the Iraqi Army in the Iraqi Desert before it arrives on Israel’s borders” (ex.Mossad Officer, Victor Ostrovsky in ‘The Other Side of Deception’ (1994) pp.117 & 246). This was because Saddam’s Ba’ath Party vowed since 1948 to recover the Holy Land from the infidels. He compensated Palestinians whose homes were destroyed by the IDF. Zionists continue to defend Blair lest their plot to devastate Iraq and banish Ba’athists (and the Islamic Caliphate) is revealed. Blair knows this as we (MoP) sent the plot to him and every MP in a dossier ‘Peace with Iraq’ in 2000. Corrupting Gulf States to befriend Israel undermines Palestinian Statehood and the Quartet’s aims and boosts Israel’s conspiracy to devastate Iran: Another War Crime and Genocide looming on their criminal record. If it’s a ‘game changer’ it is by adding ‘own goals’ against the Muslim Region.

    • Mass murder is against the Law in the West, but does not apply to the Governments of “The Five Eyes”….
