TONY Blair has said the West must focus on tackling religious extremism, and called for further involvement in Syria and Libya.Now these sentiments might sit well with liberal leftards who are now only just realising that there is a problem more due to the headlines rather than having to live amongst it, but it shows an utter naivety about actual islam and what drives it... as ever.
Failure to shake off the legacy of Iraq and "take sides" with moderates in the Middle East and beyond could mean the 21st century is dominated by conflict rather than peaceful co-operation, the former Prime Minister warned in a speech today.
Mr Blair described a global crisis with its roots in "a radicalised and politicised view of Islam, an ideology that distorts and warps Islam's true message".
He said: "The threat of this radical Islam is not abating. It is growing. It is spreading across the world.
"It is destabilising communities and even nations. It is undermining the possibility of peaceful co-existence in an era of globalisation.
First off, no one in the U.K. (apart from certain politicians, leftards and libtards) wants any involvement in Syria or Libya other than to stop the buggers coming here, what's happening there is none of our business, so long as it stays there. The problems we have with islam all stem from inviting it in and it was mostly Blair's Labour who did so in order to get votes.
Secondly, whilst there may be moderates in the Middle East, they have a tendency not to survive and do not like to be associated with us as that makes them a target to the radicals, leave them alone and hopefully we can simply let them get on with things as every attempt to deal with the problems we face by direct action has foundered on the fact that those who replace who we displace inevitably are worse.
Thirdly, islam's true message is what the radical are preaching, not the moderates and its spreading across the world because of enablers like Tony Blair and other leftard politicians who didn't realise the threat until it had set deep roots amongst us and started to tell them what they were going to do.
Peaceful co-existance with islam is impossible, look at any state where there is a majority or significant minority of muslims and generally you find trouble, either in the way of terrorism or outright aggressin against their non muslim neighbours, hell the quran even tells them how to deal with a conquered people from wiping them out to making them pay protection money.
Blair like most politicians seems to have an idealised version of islam that only exists in his head, the evidence itself from those who live near or amongst them tells a far different story as to how peaceful and tolerant actual islam is... which is not at all.
