Former British PM Blair says radical Islam a growing threat

LONDON The West should set aside its differences with Russia and China to focus on the growing threat from radical Islam, Tony Blair said Wednesday, in a speech that included a call to support Egypt’s military government against its Muslim Brotherhood opponents.

The former British prime minister said that tackling “a radicalized and politicized view of Islam” should be at the top of the global political agenda.

He said many in the West seemed “curiously resistant” to face up to a force that “is undermining the possibility of peaceful co-existence in an era of globalization.”

Blair, Britain’s prime minister between 1997 and 2007, is now Middle East envoy for the Quartet of the United Nations, the European Union, the U.S. and Russia.

In a speech in London, he said that “whatever our other differences, we should be prepared to reach out and co-operate with the East, and in particular Russia and China,” to combat Islamic extremism.

Blair’s political legacy in Britain is tarnished by his decision to lead the country into the divisive invasion of Iraq in 2003.

Blair acknowledged the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan had undermined Western willingness to intervene in the Middle East. But he called for the West to engage with the region, saying “we have to stop treating each country on the basis of whatever seems to make for the easiest life for us at any one time.”

Blair argued that “on the fate of Egypt hangs the future of the region.”

He defended the coup that overthrew the elected Muslim Brotherhood government of Mohammed Morsi last year, saying “the Muslim Brotherhood government was not simply a bad government. It was systematically taking over the traditions and institutions of the country.”

Israel- Crime against humanity.?

The israelis belong to the judaism faith- A religion of hyprocrisy, terrorism, and hate, therefore you can expect no better from them. What the jews are doing to the Palestinians, is really no different to what the christians did to the Bosnian Muslims, so christians as yourself are no better.

One could argue the world is also fed up with Christian warmongers!!

Whatever you argue you cant deny that Christians are in full support to jews when they murder innocent Muslims

EDIT: “Islam spread by the sword”?? Making up myths is not getting your point across. You need a better argument. Here’s the research you asked for; “History makes it clear, however, that the legend of fanatical Muslims sweeping through the world and forcing Islam at the point of the sword upon conquered races is one of the most l and encouraging of hatefantastically absurd myths that historians have ever accepted.” (Islam at the Crossroads, London, 1923, p. 8.) Historian De Lacy O’Leary, (Non- Muslim Trust me even if i forced you, you still wouldnt qoute the Quran, hence it would only contradict your retarded arguement. “There is no compulsion in religion” (2:256) , thus no one can be forced to become a Muslim!! “directs you kill innocent people” [Chapter 5, verse 32] “anyone who saves one life, it is as if he has saved the whole of mankind and anyone who has killed another person it is as if he has killed the whole of mankind”… Did u read the Quran, or did your eyes just overlook these Noble verses? In many places where there are Muslims now, in the Far East like Indonesia, in China, and many parts of Africa, there are no records of any Muslim armies going there. In India, where Muslims ruled for 700 years, they are still a minority. In the U.S Islam is the fastest growing religion and has 6 million followers without any sword around.

EDIT: Mate, you have taken those verses out of context. What are the verses before and after? When were they revealed? Some ayats of the Qur’an were revealed when Muslims faced heavy prosecution, and were forced to defend themselves agianst the Pagans. There is a verse in the new testament from Mathew, and it says that Jesus(pbuh) came down with a sword, and that he was sent to create rifts between family, instead of peace. That doesn’t sound to peaceful to me. I am not an expert on the Qur’an, so i cant really provide an explanation on those verses, however there are loads of Muslim forums, where other Muslims will only be to willing to explain them. Creating dialogue between Muslim and Christians is essential for an open-minded society. The new testament is NOT the words of God!! It is the words of men. Will God’s word contain contradictions? Why did God create a new testament? Is not our Lord Omnipotent?

The crusaders inspired by the Bible slaughtered every Muslim, from the infant to the woman. Your president said that God told him to invade Iraq and Afghanistan, responsible for the death of millions of innocents. Serbs in the name of Christianity commited horrenderous crimes agianst the Bosnians. So what gives you right to talk about jews and their ‘lack of compassion’, when Christians currently occuppy Muslim lands, killing innocents? What gives Christians the right to insult our beloved prophet Muhammad(pbuh) when we Muslims would never attempt to lay any false charges on Jesus(pbuh)? Most Muslim migrants come from a war-torn country either plundered by a Christian or jew, the least you could do is help them to get started. Some of my best friends in Jordan were Unitarian Christians, my neighbours were Christians, and Churches stood beside Mosques, and yet despite ppl’s efforts to create civil strife, we all lived in harmony with one another. I can guarantee you that if a war was ever waged agianst us they will be in the front alongside Muslims fighting our enemies, because Christian and Muslim Arabs, we are brothers in arms. Iraqi Christians were offered to take refuge in the west before the war started, but they refused. You treat Muslims as an enemy, when really you ppl should thank us, as without Muslims, Europeans will still be wallowing in their own excrement, and we wouldnt be having this conversation, because we wouldnt have computers (which run on algebraic equations, a Muslim innovation).
