Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair
has recently published his memoir, A Journey
, so he has been out and about for interviews and general book flacking.
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, 2010Mr 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€?
Yes, and the extremism is widespread, given the instruction of the Koran to slay the infidels
when they will not submit to Islam.
