Guest on PA TV: West & America have plan to destabilize the Middle East every 10 years, in order to support Israel which is like a “bacteria” implanted in region

Official PA TV program Panorama of the Hour, hosting lecturer on international relations at the Management and Politics Academy in Gaza Dr. Ahmed Al-Wadia, on 100 years since the Sykes-Picot Agreement and the Balfour Declaration

Lecturer on international relations at the Management and Politics Academy in Gaza Dr. Ahmed Al-Wadia:(Speaks about the two-day Fourth Palestinian National Security Conference that opened at the Management and Politics Academy in Gaza on Nov. 2, 2016, to mark 100 years since the Sykes-Picot Agreement and the Balfour Declaration. Al-Wadia notes he took part in the conference, as did Hamas Political Bureau Head Khaled Mashaal and Secretary-General of the PLO Executive Committee Saeb Erekat. The conference discussed the need for ending the internal Palestinian division between Fatah and Hamas)

      “The West in general, and the US [in particular], are attempting every ten years to take advantage of the existing conflicts that serve its (i.e., America’s ) interests in order to leave the [Middle East] region in a situation of chaos and anarchy. That is because, put simply, stability in this region first of all means the deterioration of Israel, and secondly the deterioration of the American interests in the region…
Therefore, the West is interested in a continuation of Israel’s remaining [in the region], because Israel is not part of this region, not in terms of language, not in cultural terms, and not on the religious level. It is not part of the region, like someone who plants something out of its appropriate place. Therefore, Israel is planted in a place that is not appropriate for it, and it lives like a bacteria. It lives off of the problems of others.
The continuation of the American support is not out of love for it (i.e., Israel), and not because of its good looks , but rather so that the American interests will continue to flow into the region and out of the region.
Therefore, the action that is now required from the Arabs is to pay attention to the existing anarchy, and to act to learn from past experience. One hundred years have passed since this division [of the region].”

Sykes-Picot Agreement – A secret agreement between Britain and France negotiated by French diplomat François Georges-Picot and Briton Sir Mark Sykes and concluded in May 1916. The agreement had Russia’s approval and specified Britain’s and France’s proposed spheres of influence and control in the Middle East if the Ottoman Empire was defeated in World War I.
The plan was revealed in 1917 in the Russian press, and subsequently in the British press, angering the Arabs as it contradicted promises of independence made to them - on the condition they helped fight against and bring down the Ottoman Empire. The plan caused lasting distrust on the part of the Arabs in relation to Western countries.

The Balfour Declaration of Nov. 2, 1917 was a letter from British Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour to Baron Rothschild stating that “His Majesty's government views with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people” and is seen as the basis for later international commitments to establish the State of Israel.
