'Middle East crises in UK's interest'

Continuation of tensions and wars within the Middle East is in the interest of the British Empire as London tries to solve its financial problems by maintaining the crises in the region, an analyst says.

“The British imperial interests are determined to provoke [tension] in the (Middle East) region,” Gretchen Small from Executive Intelligence Review said on Tuesday.

That is “because … they think the way to get … out of the collapse of their financial system right now is by blowing up the world,” she added in an interview with Press TV.

Small argued that the main reason why a Palestinian state has not yet been formed is because Britain “has blocked it all along.”

“The British empire and the British imperial interests … want this [Palestine] crisis to continue. That is how they control nations and the world,” she added.

This past week Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay have all sent letters to Acting Palestinian Authority Chief Mahmoud Abbas, saying they recognize a free and independent Palestinian state within the 1967 borders.

In response, Israel has said the move is against the spirit of the Middle East talks.

Due to the renewed settlement building activities, the Palestinian Authority broke off the recently-resumed direct talks with the PA stipulating that Israel would have to halt construction and expansion of Jewish settler units for the talks to continue.

Israel, however, has refused to recant its recent decision to build 238 new Jewish settler units in East al-Quds (Jerusalem) and is also forging ahead with the construction of new units in settlements in other parts of the occupied territories.

The Palestinians say that the settlement activities are being carried out to prevent the establishment of an independent Palestinian state.
