We care about Zimbabwe because the white landowners are being thrown off the land. We fear Iran because we can't tolerate a Muslim country that could compete with Israel on equal terms. We condemn Hizbollah because in the end we see our interests as inextricably tied with those of Israel. How else to explain that Gordon Brown can refuse to attend a summit when Mugabe is present yet, a few weeks earlier, dress up in tails to greet the King of Saudi Arabia on a state visit? What else accounts for the fact that we proclaim we want democracy in the Middle East and then reject its results as soon as a group that we dislike – Hamas – is fairly elected in Palestine?
Of course, it was ever thus. The West has always clothed its self-interest in the language of moral uplift, declaring our desire to bring the Bible to the heathen and our ways to the uneducated, all the while imposing taxes on salt and imports, tying up the developing world's resources and making sure that they provided a ready market for our exports.
Adrian Hamilton: It's time to ditch hypocrisy in our foreign policy - The UK Independent,27 December 2007
