The new Baker-Sykes-Picot Agreement



The new Baker-Sykes-Picot Agreement of November 14. 2006 was a secret understanding between the governments of the US, Israel and Britain defining their respective spheres of post World War 111 influence and control in the Middle East.
The boundaries of this agreement will remain the common border between the new Israel, Syria and Iran.
Britain was allocated control of palm trees around the Palestine Hotel in the New Tehran.
The agreement is seen by many as a turning point in Western/Arab relations, as it negated the promises made to Arabs through T.E. Lawrence for a national homeland in the Syrian territory in exchange for their siding with British forces against the Ottoman Empire and the Mullahs in Iran.
