Tony Blair, a man who launched a criminal war with no end, declared once again today that “Radical Islam is the world's greatest threat”.
He made the remark in a BBC interview marking the publication of his memoirs.
Blair said radical Islamists believed that whatever was done in the name of their cause was justified, including the use of chemical, biological or nuclear weapons.
I can’t make up my mind whether Blair’s remark is amusing or tragic, for not a single Islamic leader has ever used “chemical, biological or nuclear weapons”. If anything, it is Britain and the USA who deployed weaponry that contained depleted uranium. A recent study reveals that the cancer rate in Fallujah, Iraq, is worse than it was in Hiroshima or Nagasaki.
Blair doesn’t like Iran either: "We need to give a message to Iran that is very clear – that they cannot have a nuclear weapons capability, and we will stop them." I have actually believed for many years that an Iranian bomb is the key to peace. An Iranian bomb is the only thing that may deter Western expansionism and Israeli barbarism.
One would expect the Middle East Quartet’s “peace envoy” to pretend to be impartial and to demand Israel's transparency over its nuclear affairs. I guess that this is too much to ask. Hence, I would advise the Quartet that if they are truly interested in peace in the region, first they must make sure that Blair is brought to the Hague and face justice. Such an act would be the first step towards peace. It would demonstrate ethical integrity and moral transparency.
Clearly, the British political and judicial systems are not up to the task of confronting Britain’s recent colossal war crimes. We need the international community to intervene.
"This [Islamic] extremism is so deep,” said Blair “that in the end they have to know that they're facing a stronger will than theirs." Interestingly enough, the facts on the ground suggest otherwise.
The English-speaking armies are totally defeated in Iraq and Afghanistan. Evidently, not much “strong will” is detected among the British and American soldiers to die in these Zionist wars called by war criminals who are funded by Zionist lobbyists.
