Blair was in occupied Palestine just recently promoting zionist victory over the natives and neighbours of that country. And he was in America after that to promote his stupid book, presumably because no UK bookshop dared have him given the protests that would ensue.
The Jewish Chronicle in the UK reported that whilst in Palestine
Former British prime minster Tony Blair nailed his colours firmly to the mast of Israel and democracy [!!!] this week in a stunning address to press, politicians and diplomats in Herzliya.Unbelievable, stunning even. This was days before the publication of his book in which he claims he has cried for the dead in Iraq. Isn't that a double standard? Israel couldn't hope to get away with its persistent war crimes in and around Palestine if it wasn't for the double standards it benefits from. And Blair is the "official envoy of the Quartet on the Middle East". I'm guessing it was a freudian slip that had the JC omitting final insult, peace, from Blair's latest job title.
Speaking in his capacity as official envoy of the Quartet on the Middle East, Mr Blair challenged critics of Israel not to apply double standards to the Jewish state.
Oh, on the crying over Iraq thing, did I mention I had a letter published in today's Guardian? Someone in The Guardian claimed that Blair had "admitted" to crying over Iraq. Here's my response: Ooh! "Self-exculpation". Well the spell-checker never chucked it out so I ran with it.
There's an awful lot of tosh in The Independent about Blair too, but they didn't publish my letter. They did publish several others in response to a wretched piece of nonsense by Blair biographer, John Rentoul. The piece is sub-titled,
Nothing he can say in his book today will stop the flow; the anger against him exists at a deeper level, impervious to reasoned argument, certainly from himThe problem that Blair is a transparent self-seeking bare-faced liar clearly hasn't occurred to Mr Rentoul or it has and he is of the same ilk. None of the letters agree with Rentoul so I'm dreading tomorrow when "balance" might kick in.
