After approx. 60 yrs. of invasion and killing by Israel, the Palestinians are saying, who ? do you mean ex Prime Minister Blair ? that Tony Blair ?
A member of 'the friends of Israel, Mr Blair's comments on this conflict have been few and far between, America's unquestioning support for Israel despite it's crimes, it's occupation, it's trampling on Palestinian human rights have received the 'de facto' support of Blair and now the Palestinians are expected to look on him as the man who will bring them justice.
Blairs legacy will include the suffering of the Palestinians as well as Iraq, sucked in on both issues by his proximity to the cowboy half wit in the White House, I sincerely hope I'm wrong, this is a mountain to climb just to gain acceptance as an equal player, with his background he does not have, nor deserve to have the trust of the Palestinians.
Palestine, along with Iraq presents an opportunity to take a different direction from the American Cretin, his own supporters are leaving the rat infested sinking ship and I hope that GB will take this opportunity to bring hope and peace to Iraq and Palestine but, hey ! it ain't gonna be easy, America is a friend and should remain so, a friend that is, not a boss.
