The headline in London's Financial Times neatly captured how important British Prime Minister David Cameron's election victory will be for the Middle East.In the face of Russian revanchism and the increasing mayhem spreading across the Middle East, Cameron has been invisible.In fact only 143 of the most vulnerable Syrian refugees have been resettled in the U.K. Based on May's comments that number is extremely unlikely to increase under the new government.The U.K. will also remain a marginal contributor to the air campaign against ISIS.Ultimately, Cameron's priorities will be keeping the U.K. together in the face of the huge surge in support for the Scottish Nationalist Party, which wants Scotland to be independent. Oddly enough, the SNP, now the U.K.'s third largest party, is the only mainstream political group that supports the immediate recognition of a Palestinian state and has called on the government to upgrade the political representation of Palestine in the U.K. to a fully functioning embassy.The prime minister, who will campaign for the U.K. to remain in the EU, will have to devote all his energies to renegotiating the terms of Britain's membership to convince voters to back his position.
