Tony Blair: Middle East peace ‘within the year’

But only, he says, if all sides agree to peaceful negotiations.


What brilliance.

Mr Blair’s Yale students must be really academically stretched with such intellectually stimulating observations and revelatory insight.

He said there was a ‘great sense of hope and expectation’ after President Obama's recent ‘speech to the Islamic world’ delivered in Cairo. And he is certain and sure of peace in the Middle East ‘if President Obama gets the right partner, on the Israeli side but also on the Palestinian side’.


And just to make sure everyone has understood his prophecy, he spells it out in triplicate, declaring: "So if everyone would commit themselves to a peaceful political negotiation to a two-state solution, you could have this deal within the year. But people have got to be prepared to commit to it."

So, there you have it. There will be peace in the Middle East within a year, but only if both sides commit to it.

With this unparalleled religio-political intuition, we really must have this man as the first President of Europe.

One must admit that it would be hard to argue with the theory or logic of Mr Blairs statement, but who writes his scripts? And why does he always strike poses which look reminisent of Gerry & Sylvia Andersons Thunderbirds? perhaps it has something to do with International Rescue. More to the point, Who's pulling his strings?

Every so often I find myself wishing that Zeus still had a few thunderbolts to aim at one or two of our egotistical politicians.

Your Grace -

Oh, wow! Such dazzling insights from TB!

All hail the (future) president!

PS What has an IQ of 144? Presumably our Tony feels that it's a gross of the electorate.

Your Grace,

It is foretold by some that the President of Europe will be the fiercest and most diabolical dictator the world has ever known. A political, economic and military genius who will succeed with such speed and might that no one will dare try any resistance before he has the world in his grip. It is said that he will oppose and exalt himself over any God that is worshipped and proclaim himself to be God.

Unless Tony has hidden talents that can only be revealed at the appointed time he would not appear to be a suitable candidate for such a demanding role.

Your Grace,

Reading this post I had the best laugh in days (although I do understand the sadness of this situation)

This being said, the funniest reading session in a long long time.

God save TB!

Tony Blair urged Gordon Brown to hold the independent inquiry into the Iraq war in secret because he feared that he would be subjected to a "show trial" if it were opened to the public, the Observer can reveal.

The revelation that the former prime minister, who led the country to war in March 2003, had intervened will fuel the anger of MPs, peers, military leaders and former civil servants, who were appalled by Brown's decision last week to order the investigation to be conducted behind closed doors.

Blair is believed to have been alarmed by the prospect that he might be asked to give evidence in public and under oath about the use of intelligence and about his numerous private discussions with US President George Bush at which the two leaders laid plans for war.

It appears there will be some interesting stories in tomorrow's press, Your Grace.

According to the Telegraph, Gordon Brown will be appearing on Songs of Praise, discussing courage. It seems that truth really is stranger than fiction.

Meanwhile, the Observer claims that Tony Blair exerted pressure for the inquiry into the Iraq War to be held in private. In the interests of straightness and regularity, no doubt.

All these grandstanding politicians - the last one to say it with sincerity was Jimmy Carter - are completely deluded. The Arabs and Israelis have been slaughtering each other for thousands of years and it will not stop any time in the next thousand or two.

For sure, we can mitigate it and moderate it by one means or another*, but 'a lasting peace'?

* To the extent that we care. I don't.

Thoughts on Daniel 9:27 as it relates to the impending peace treaty between Palestine and Israel.
In the Book of Daniel we are warned that the Anti-Christ is the 'right partner ' that Tony Blair refers to.

The signing of a peace treaty will kick start events unprecedented in history.( Daniel (9:27)

Yale University can't be all that it's cracked up to be, then, if it forks out real money for the self-worshipping ninny Blair to stand up and spout this pathetic drivel.

Ron Paul has an interesting slant on the Arab Israeli Conflict,

If the US cut off the Welfare cheque to the Israelis, they's be forced to Negotiate a peace deal with their Arab Neighbours Pretty quick.

I am saddened that you don't know who pulls Blair's strings! I thought by now everybody knew that the puppeteers are Israel's proxies in the western world.

"But only, he says, if all sides agree to peaceful negotiations."

Brilliance unbounded! Small wonder that he's been PM, and probably headed towards becoming Emperor of the EU.

"There will be peace when everybody stops fighting."

Look upon these words, Churchill, Nelson, Pitt, and despair.

Adrian P: "If the US cut off the Welfare cheque to the Israelis, they's be forced to Negotiate a peace deal with their Arab Neighbours Pretty quick."

Which would satisfy everybody, the result being the end of Israel.

You're using a particularly wide definition of "neighbour" - neighbours do not customarily toss rocks through your windows or flat your tyres - or daily launch badly-aimed rockets into your yard.

Adrian P,
The Palestinians receive more aid per head than any other people on earth and have done so for decades. The U.S. is a big contributer, albeit indirectly through UNWRA. This is what has allowed for the massive population explosion of the Palestinians, the major (though unsayable in polite company) factor continually stoking conflict.

It is true that if aid to both sides were stopped a more rational solution could be realised, but that solution is nothing like what you probably envision.
