Former UK prime minister Tony Blair sold out his nation due to desire to be the best friend George Bush ever had in life. He lied to the British people about WMD and he once again is displaying bias in dealing with foreign policy issues. Palestinian leaders are furious with the supposed “mediator” and insist they “cannot trust anything” he states. One expressed the view of Palestinians that Blair has turned ouot to be “more of an Israeli diplomat than a neurtral mediator.”
At a time when conciliation and concern for the vviews of opponents should be a paramount issue, the Israel government announced new housing construction in the Jerusalem area. It was a deliberate provocative act but Blair did not blast the Israelis. If Palestinians behaved in that manner he would be demanding a halt to the actions. Who is Tony Blair and why is he a “mediator” are questions of concern?
