One straight-forward opinion grabbed headlines, that â€?radicalâ€? Islam (thereâ€™s another kind?) is the biggest threat to mankind. For a former world leader, itâ€™s a major statement that violates the elite doctrine to Say No Evil about Islam, even with the â€?radicalâ€? qualifier.
Radical Islam is worldâ€™s greatest threat â€“ Tony Blair, BBC, September 3, 2010Yes, and the extremism is widespread, given the instruction of the Koran to slay the infidels when they will not submit to Islam.
Mr Blair told the BBC his view of foreign policy had changed as a result of the 9/11 attacks: â€?After 11 September, rightly or wrongly, I felt the calculus of risk had changed.
â€?There is the most enormous threat from the combination of this radical extreme movement and the fact that, if they could, they would use nuclear, chemical or biological weapons.
â€?You canâ€™t take a risk with that happening.â€?
Mr Blair said he agonised over how to respond to radical Islam and still had doubts that he was right.
These are really difficult issues, he said, but added: â€?This extremism is so deep that in the end they have to know that theyâ€™re facing a stronger will than theirs.â€?
