'War criminal' named 'peace envoy' resigns!

By S.H.Moulana - Riyadh

The news of Tony Blair's resignation from the 'peace envoy' job to solve the Israeli-Palestinian issue has brought jubilation among the people of the region.

The strangest statement he has made in his letter of resignation to the UN Secretary General Secretary has amused many.

He has assured that he will do everything possible to find a two state solution.

The man who did nothing while officially holding the position for eight long years, he is going to do everything possible now?

He could not stop when Israelis were raining with bombs in Gaza, not once but twice and each occasion thousands of innocent women and children died in the onslaught.

Not only are the people of the region but all those who opposed the illegal Iraqi war celebrating his resignation although the country he invaded is still in turmoil.

‘This despicable ‘peace envoy’, Tony Blair, will be remembered for nothing other than that he followed George W Bush over a cliff, took the rest of us with them, and we haven’t yet reached the bottom, I am afraid’ said George Galloway, the anti-war activist.

Perhaps we shall now be spared the almost constant interventions from this war mongering former prime-minister of Britain. He has done absolutely nothing to contribute towards any settlement in the region and if anything, has demonstrated he has always been very much pro Israel.

If there is anyone feeling sad to see this man going, it will be none other than the Israeli prime-minister, Benjamin Nethanyahu. Blair not only robbed the world of peace together with Bush and helped the development of terrorist organizations by his behavior.

Nicaraguan born human right advocate, Bianca Jagger, said ‘Bush and Blair had to convince the world that Saddam represented an imminent threat. Blair deliberately lied when he claimed that Iraq could launch a chemical or biological attack within 45 minutes.’

Blair’s appointment as a ‘peace envoy’ was the biggest insult the quartet did to the Arabs of the region and especially to the Palestinians.

In short it was a real joke! Shame on this hypocrite who is hated even by his own countrymen for bringing discredit to them in the world.
