If Israel is used to strike Iran for the UK, it will not be the first favour done.

Ignoring Dulle’s (US Secretary of State) warnings, Eden (UK Prime Minister) and Foreign Secretary Selwyn Lloyd, together with the French, now set in train a highly secret process of collusion with Israel against Egypt. The mechanics were worked out at Sevres near Paris October 22nd -24th. The Israelis were to invade Egypt on the evening of October 29th, aiming to reach the Canal Zone the following day, thus threatening the Canal. Britain and France were to issue an ultimatum on October 30th to both Israel and Egypt to accept a ceasefire and withdraw ten miles from the Canal. Within twelve hours Britain and France would commence military operation against the party that refused, as they expected Egypt to do.

On November 1st, the Guardian called the attack (British and French air attacks) on Egypt a disaster; the Daily Mirror labeled it a ‘blunder’ that would ‘achieve nothing’ and the Daily Herald stated that the war was ‘unnecessary’ and ‘illegal’. Even The Times was lukewarm in its support for Eden.

Eden failed to get United States support for the attack and the United Kingdom eventually withdrew all of their forces from Egypt by December 22, 1956.

Israel was used as an attack dog for the United Kingdom and to a lesser extent the French. An invasion of Egypt was secretly organised by the highest office of the United Kingdom.

He then sealed his fate when, in the Commons, he came under pressure from the Labour Party over the extent of collusion with the Israelis. Eden denied that there had been any foreknowledge of Israel’s action against Egypt. ...Eden resigned on January 9th, 1957.


More recently the Queen addressed the state opening of the House of Commons (3 December 2008), where she astonishingly addressed ‘Iran’s nuclear ambitions’ directly…

“My Government will press for a comprehensive peace settlement in the Middle East, for continued progress in Iraq and for effective measures to address concerns over Iran's nuclear programme”

Would it surprise anyone that the United Kingdom is about to unleash its attack dog (Israel) again, this time on Iran? The reasons for the United Kingdom’s attack on Egypt in 1956 were entirely punitive. The President of Egypt nationalised the lucrative Suez Canal, when somewhat ironically the United States President failed to deliver on promised funding for a dam project.

Most people know that Iran is now entirely out of United States dollars for its trades in oil and gas products. Most people also know that since the Second World War, all trades in oil products must be processed through either the London IPE or New York NYMEX exchanges. The last person that refused to comply with this presumption was Saddam Hussein in 2000. Needless to say, Iraq was invaded and Saddam was eventually executed in front of the world.

So here we are again…the United Kingdom and also this time, the United States are faced with an entirely punitive problem, but instead of being threatened with the seizure of a major ‘highway of oil’, they are faced with being excluded from the complicated and lucrative oil trades through their respective commodity exchanges.

But what will really happen if Israel invades or attacks Iran? Will we again see two major powers (with ‘clean hands'), United Kingdom and United States immediately request a cease fire (much like what happened in the recent exchange in South Ossetia). What will happen if Iran refuses to accept the condition of a cease fire, perhaps even alleging that the United Kingdom and United States are key players in the attack (including the use of Iraqi air space)?

Will the United States or United Kingdom commence air operations against Iran, just like the United Kingdom did in 1956? And even more distressing, just as Egypt was strengthening its relationship with the Soviet Union with arms deals in the 50’s, Iran has also been strengthening its relationship with the modern day Soviet Union, Russia, with arms deals and unprecedented diplomatic relations.

When Israel, United Kingdom and France invaded Egypt in 1956, as was noted above, there were cries of ‘blunder’ and ‘illegal’, very similar to the cries that we heard after the invasion of Iraq in 2003. If Iran gets invaded or attacked by Israel, there will be the same cries, but will it simply be another case of sacking the Prime Minister of the day, while the world attempts to clean up the aftermath, perhaps a radioactive one or worse, a global one?

While the leaders of this world continue to make decisions based on entirely punitive outcomes, the world will continue on its current grotesque path to war. In the United Kingdom, Prime Ministers come and go; unlike the head of state, who reigns by her own volition. It is amazing to think that the Queen would have addressed the same House of Commons back in 1956 (she was enthroned in 1953). Although with a very different audience, I wonder if her message directly addressed Egypt and the Suez Canal. And although I know who is responsible for making the law in the United Kingdom, I wonder who is actually responsible for laying it down each year?

No prob.! The vid is much more than the 'incident' in Egypt, but it starts at that point in history. The docu is long and the narrator's voice is drone, but the info presented is worth the time to watch.

Thanks for the article, OP.
