Tony Blair Finally Has a Problem with Islam

Laura Booth, Tony Blair's sister-in law, after she converted to Islam

The Quartet’s Middle East envoy Tony Blair, who for years has tried to “engage” Hamas and Fatah terrorist regimes, wrote this week, “There is a problem within Islam – from the adherents of an ideology that is a strain within Islam. We have to put it on the table and be honest about it.”

Blair wrote his new enlightenment in the London Daily Mail following the recent beheading of a British soldier by a Muslim who attacked him on a London street in broad daylight.

While agreeing that every religion has its extremists, Blair wrote, “I am afraid this strain is not the province of a few [Islamic] extremists. It has at its heart a view about religion and about the interaction between religion and politics that is not compatible with pluralistic, liberal, open-minded societies.”

Blair has close contact with Muslims. His sister-in-law Lauren Booth who converted to Islam in 2010 and secretly wed social worker Sohale Ahmed in a Muslim ceremony months ago, although his first wife said he still is married to her.

“She stole my husband from under my nose. It’s absolutely disgusting,” said the woman,” quoted by the London Sun. ”I regarded her as a friend, a Muslim sister. But she’s not even a good woman, never mind a good Muslim.”

Booth is a good radical Muslim. She sailed to Gaza three years to support Hamas and was arrested by Israel when she tried to set foot in Israel.

    please explain this. I THERERFORE ASK THESE LEADERS TO OBTAIN AN APOLOGY FOR ME.. I recently bowed out of the interfaith Holocaust service, because it was a custom to include Hatikvah at the end, but now some Christian groups object as they support the Palestinians and the Muslim Imams would either sit or leave during the Hatikvah. Perhaps interfaith Holocaust programs no longer make sense, at least to me. I do not need the stress of seeing disrespect being afforded to Israel and nor do I wish to compromise by leaving Hatikvah out. The interfaith Holocaust memorials started as well intentioned way for the Jewish people and other groups to pause and reflect on man's capacity to perpetuate unbelievable cruelty against his fellow and to commiserate as a group and others, with the Jews and hopefully prevent this nightmare from reocc…urring. Over the years it was understandably modified to include other victims of genocidal mass killings, though these mass killings were not really analogous, as the Nazis were obsessed at not just killing Jews as a competing group, but Hitler desired to eliminate our creed and it's pervasive influence on humanity, particularly Christian doxy. As a result of Muslim participation and twisted liberalism, this is morphing into a twisted canard where Israel is being blamed for perpetuating ethnic killings against the Palestinians as the Jews were slaughtered by the Nazis. One can understand the Islamo-Nazis belief system with a quote from the Talmud. We do not see things as they are. We see them as we are. RABBI DR.

    To World Jewry:

    I hope you will consider my plea as one of the few Rabbis in Americas who speaks out for Israel, fights anti-Semitism throughout the world and one who speaks out vehemently against extremist Muslims. In addition I fight on behalf of Holocaust survivors and have been vocal regarding the Holocaust Claims Conference missing funds. I was also president of Rabbis for Romney. You are welcome to look me up on the internet.

    We are living in pre Holocaust times. European Jewry is facing major anti-Semitism and parts of Europe are Judenrein. Israel is facing a possible Holocaust from Iran and surrounding enemies. I was just banned from the Huffington Post for expressing my displeasure with Muslims praying at Auschwitz over my family ashes. Extremist Muslims want Israel and all Jews annihilated. My plea to all Jews: Speak out. Tell your Rabbis not to remain silent. We are running out of time.

    Hey Tony, what was your first clue?

  9. rabbi rosenberg
    shalom from jerusalem
    no we are not living in pre holocaust times, we are living in the time of gog and magog and much worse is on the way. much much worse.

    galut is dead.finished. over. it was intended as punishment not a place to put down roots and build fancy homes. every galut has ended in diaster for jews who dont learn.

    its time for those who have any survival instincts, to get to israel. this is the only place that will have survivors.when you live here you dont feel the same fear and panic that jews feel in the galut. we live with miracles all the time, we see gods hand in action.

    hashem rules the world ,he manipulates events and people to get his own goal. including using the muslims as puppets to send the message to his people, get back to israel.

    i appreciate your concern as so many rabbinim are in such denial and dont speak out about anything.but the answer is israel and dont worry about iran.

    if the jews would rather be concerned with pleasing the creator instead of what men think …. well it would make a change.

    Dear Rabbi Rosenburg
    Thank you. Baruch HaShem. Common sense, its not the Muslims who want to just live a life, not hurting anyone, that anyone has a problem with
    Pretending, this other group doesn't exist, or are just a tiny number, insane. " Never Again". Right now ,
    The feel good about themselves, for being so open minded, not wanting to live in reality, but some Utopian world view , w PC as their guide. It's a dangerous game. PC is not telling the truth. Obama is pushing for control of any Truth speak about the killing element of Islam, and The faux liberals, They Do Not Question Authority. Real Liberals do.
    The Faux Liberals, w PC as their god. They are leading US, Europe, towards. Again
    As I recall, in real history, nobody wanted to Believe Hitler either.
    Islam is screaming, showing us what their plan is.
    Yet, it gets poo pooed, like its just a big joke, that their utopian mind, is the real reality, and those that believe what the evil elements Islam are saying, are Islamaphobic. What the heck is that?
    Thank you Rabbi, keep telling the truth, not PC lies
    L'Shalom

    Blair's wife Cherrie is also a crackpot. It seems to run n the family.

    Husbands and wives generally don't share genes there Mendel.

  13. We jews have survived the Persian, Egyptian, Greeg, Roman, Otoman, Nazi, British, Soviet, etc: empires, they dissapiered, and we are here, and Islam will dissapiere, it is happening, GOD people will stay forever.

  14. Tim Upham says:

    Having Tony Blair in charge of the Quartet has been a pathetic joke. For the Quartet has done absolutely nothing on behalf of Israeli-Palestinian peace. Did this man just make his money off publishing his autobiography? Because as for leading the Quartet he is not even worth a single schilling.

  15. John Candido says:

    We have recently had the shocking murder of British soldier Lee Rigby and the Boston Marathon bombing, amongst many other religiously inspired acts of violence, by those who claim it is a justifiable act of jihad, over the last several years. Some questions that you could legitimately ask are what is the true meaning of jihad? If jihad is legitimately about a personal spiritual exercise and the violent defence of Islam, is religiously inspired violence appropriate in a modern world of liberal democracy, a free press and the rule of law? Is there any hope of reform by a discussion amongst progressive and conservative Islamic scholars?
    The issue of jihad is the elephant in the room that nobody seems able to talk about, without the accusation of racism and/or religious intolerance being conveyed to you. The prospect of religiously inspired violence is obviously a lot more serious than a personal spiritual jihad, which has no implications for the safety of members of the public. It would be indispensable for the Muslim faith and for all other people, if there was constructive theological debate amongst the leading Islamic scholars of today. As every member of the public, regardless of race, political belief or religious affiliation, can become inadvertently affected by terrorism, it is in the public interest that the current Muslim understanding of jihad be given a thorough going over, in a mutually respectful manner.
    Have a read of this article by a Muslim Canadian journalist called Mr. Tarek Fatah, who writes for ‘The Toronto Sun’. He has called for an examination of the Islamic doctrine of jihad, in order that violence and terrorism may be separated from religious motivations. The article was published in ‘The Huffington Post Canada’ at, http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/tarek-fatah/uk-beheading-jihad-terror_b_3325363.html?just_reloaded=1.

  16. soon enough they Brits going to call England Britistan!

  17. "The only thing for the triumph of evil, is for the good men to do nothing"!

  18. And thank you Rabbi Rosenburg , keep up with the good work.
