Straw called for normalization of relations with Hamas. Straw opposed military action against Iran. Did Israel order Blair to sack Straw?

Who are Blair's paymasters?

Is Blair doing the bidding of Israel and the Israeli-Americans in Washington?

1. On 30 April 2006, during a visit to Saudi Arabia, Jack Straw called for normalization of relations with Hamas.

2. As UK Foreign Secretary, Straw ruled out any military action against Iran.

Straw said repeatedly that a military strike on Iran is "inconceivable". Straw dismissed as "nuts" a report that George Bush was keeping on the table the option of using tactical nuclear weapons against Tehran's nuclear plants.

3. In April Bush phoned Blair. According to friends of Straw, President Bush was furious that Mr Straw said it was "nuts" to use nuclear weapons against Iran.

4. Straw was removed from his job as UK Foreign Secretary in the May 2006 cabinet changes.

5. New UK Foreign Secretary Margaret Beckett is a Blair loyalist, and therefore likely to support Israel.

According to The Independent, 7 May 2006:

There is said to be jubilation this weekend among Washington's neo-conservatives at Mr Straw's demise. One retired senior US intelligence officer told his British counterpart recently that the White House lost confidence in the Foreign Secretary at least six months ago.
