Blair misses the issue. He says there is a problem in Islam, not a problem with Islam. Islam is the problem. He is taking the same position as all the other PC crowd. He says there are a few extremists who need to be purged from the religion of peace. He does not admit Islam is a religion of murder and mayhem.
That depends on what the word 'in' means. /Bill Clinton
Seriously, you're splitting hairs here. And, actually, Blair does deviate from the usual 'a few extremists' rhetoric with his statement, contrary to what you assert:
"But I am afraid this strain is not the province of a few 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." (Tony Blair, in the first link I provided, and may he rot in hell anyway)
That is more outspoken than anything I've read from any British 'top politician' or 'elder statesman' since Winston Churchill or Enoch Powell. But I get that you will defend Greenfield, right or wrong. Me, I just take every statement as it comes, and will criticize where criticism is due. Anyway, do you have a source for the quote I initially cited?
