It is astounding how shameless left wing politicians sell out to Mohammedan invaders who are given the right to vote in the Dar-al-Harb, the lands of the infidels (why?) the land of war, which is yet to be conquered by Islam, because ‘all religion must belong to Allah…’
But they do, and they make good use of these privileges, in order to keep left-wing nut-roots like Ken Livingstone, the Jew-hating Major of Londonistan, Jack Straw (“the alternative would be to horrible to contemplate”…) and the male whore ‘gorgeous’ George Galloway in positions where they don’t belong. Does anyone remember Blair, how he went on a whirlwind tour around the Middle East after 9/11, exasperated about the triumphalist attitudes of the Arabs (who always perceived the 9/11 attack as a ‘great victory’ for Islam) how he sat like a schoolboy with the (now deceased) Emir of Qatar in front of the Al Jazzeera media circus, who lectured him on Bin Laden and asked him whether he ‘respected him now’- (meaning OBL) which sent Tony Blair, this empty suit, in a spinning frenzy as he tried to babble his way out of this embarrassment, while trying to make some sense of all these grinning, smirking sons of Allah…
He may have said some of the right things during his years in power, yet he could always be relied upon not to do anything when it mattered. He promised to deport 500 Islamic clerics after the 7/7 London bombings, but not one has been deported to date. One (Omar Bakri, one of the most notorious hate-preachers) left of his own accord. Blair is not the only one who blabbers absurdities with both sides of his mouth, but his latest display of stupidity is a complete sell-out.

Tony Blair speaks of “progressive” Qur’an, says “the spread of Islam and its dominance over previously Christian or pagan lands were breathtaking”
Tony Blair strikes again, this time in Foreign Affairs (thanks to Andrew Bostom). For him to relate the Qur’an’s delegitimization of Judaism and Christianity as akin to the Protestant Reformation is unsurprising, but his papering over the bloodiness of the conquest of the formerly Christian lands of the Middle East and North Africa, as well as of Persia and India, is unconscionable.
To me, the most remarkable thing about the Koran is how progressive it is. I write with great humility as a member of another faith. As an outsider, the Koran strikes me as a reforming book, trying to return Judaism and Christianity to their origins, much as reformers attempted to do with the Christian church centuries later. The Koran is inclusive. It extols science and knowledge and abhors superstition. It is practical and far ahead of its time in attitudes toward marriage, women, and governance.
Under its guidance, the spread of Islam and its dominance over previously Christian or pagan lands were breathtaking. Over centuries, Islam founded an empire and led the world in discovery, art, and culture. The standard-bearers of tolerance in the early Middle Ages were far more likely to be found in Muslim lands than in Christian ones.
Read it all, if you have the stomach.
