The Middle East Quartet and Neo-Imperialism

Former British Prime Minister and New Middle East Quartet Envoy Tony Blair is scheduled to arrive in Israel today with the goal of laying political and economic groundwork that will help force the State of Israel to shrink her borders. I find it noteworthy that Blair is expected to set up his headquarters at Jerusalem’s Government House, the same compound in Jerusalem’s Armon Hanatziv neighborhood from where the British ruled when they occupied our country.

According to British press reports Blair has expressed interest in using Government House as his base. I find it very telling that Tony Blair would look to set up shop in the very building that his people used when they ruled over our land and oppressed our people. To me this reeks of subconscious imperialism and should make us all weary of the Quartet’s agenda in the region (as if shrinking Israel weren’t bad enough).

The last Quartet envoy, James Wolfensohn, used the American Colony Hotel as his base of operations. Wolfensohn – a member of the Council on Foreign Relations who has been known to attend meetings of both the Bilderberg Group and Aspen Institute – served as Condoleezza Rice’s Special Envoy for the Gaza Disengagement here in Israel two years ago. Up until then Wolfensohn was president of the World Bank, a position he used to heavily fund the Gaza Disengagement in order to facilitate the expulsion of nearly ten thousand Jews from their homes.

The Quartet is made up of the United States, European Union, United Nations and Russia. It was set up to divide the Land of Israel and promote a neo-imperialist (globalist) agenda in the Middle East. But if the United States were to pull out of the Quartet, as Congressman Ron Paul would certainly do if elected president, it is doubtful that the remaining three participants would be able to keep up momentum. If American supporters of Israel wish to save the Jewish state from the globalist agenda of the Middle East Quartet, the best course of action would be support for Congressman Paul.
