„Die Bedrohung richtet sich nun stark gegen Israel“

Dr. Michael Borchard im DW-Interview zum Sykes-Picot-Abkommen und den aktuellen Entwicklungen im Nahen Osten
Vor 100 Jahren wurde nach der Zerschlagung des Osmanischen Reichs das geheime Sykes-Picot-Abkommen zwischen den französischen und britischen Regierungen getroffen. Diese willkürliche Grenzziehung wird heute für die Probleme im Nahen Osten verantwortlich gemacht. Dr. Michael Borchard, Leiter des Auslandsbüros der Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung in Israel, sieht dies differenziert. „Ich würde nicht sagen, das Sykes-Picot der Beginn allen Übels war, aber die Aufteilung in verschiedene Zonen lässt auf mangelndes Wissen über den Nahen Osten schließen“, sagte er im Interview mit der Deutschen Welle.
