Blair [r] with Abbas (MaanImages)
Gaza – Ma'an – Islamic Jihad leader, Muhammad Harrazein, said on Tuesday that the Quartet Middle East envoy, Tony Blair's, visit to region is an attempt to heighten tensions in the Palestinian territories and deepen the Hamas-Fatah conflict.

Harrazein said that such goals will be achieved through meeting with President Abbas and boycotting the Hamas leadership.

The Islamic Jihad leader stated that internal Palestinian dialogue, not meetings with Blair, is the solution to the current crisis.

Harrazein speculated what the true goal of the former British prime minister's tour in the region is in light of the worsening dispute between the Palestinians.

He described President Abbas' dealing with Blair as "iniquitous".

"The Palestinian disasters over decades were originally caused by the British government as a result of the Balfour Treaty, which gave the Israeli gangs the right to occupy Palestine and deport its people," said Harrazein.
