Tony Blair says, "Radical Islam is world's greatest threat"!
BBC News ^ | 3 September 2010 | Eeyore

Posted on 09/11/2010 2:40:14 PM PDT by Morpheus2009

Former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair has described radical Islam as the greatest threat facing the world today.

He made the remark in a BBC interview marking the publication of his memoirs.

Mr Blair said radical Islamists believed that whatever was done in the name of their cause was justified - including the use of chemical, biological or nuclear weapons.

But don’t worry, we will befriend all those moderate and peaceful Muslims we hear about. And if the USA just behaves itself and tries not to be too racist or violent, they will naturally love us!!! (/sarc)

Hey, I’ve got an idea to appease them.

Let’s let them have nuclear energy.

Yeah, that’s the ticket.

“As Americans we are not — and never will be — at war with Islam,”

first, IMO he isn’t even an American in it’s real sense..he hates America, and second, he is a muslim...so how can he want to be at war with islam?

Perhaps there isn’t, but there certainly exist “non-radical,” secularized Muslims who know their bread is buttered on the West side.

The thing such as non-radical islam is a product of leftist politics. The problem with leftist politics is that in Britain as well as the United States, liberal politicians let Muslims get away with doing such things as pray in the streets, things that they wouldn’t let people of other faiths do. Liberal politics sets Islam as a class above other religions. Why they do this makes no sense to me. Treat them like every other religion under Western Civilization, put them to the test of whether or not they will live under the Western Way, and practice whatever part of their religion is in compliance with the law. This is the same as about everyone else, and if they don’t want to respect the law, that’s too bad. I know this doesn’t sound good enough as a solution, but it’s the best civilized action I could think of at this instant.

Tony Blair is about as liberal as you can get. If he was an American politician, he would be at least as far left as Obama, perhaps further.

And yet, just for acknowledging what is, as a practical matter, beyond dispute, he is HATED by the leftists.

How can he be at war with islam? Like it or not, we are in a war to tame Islam, Islam must know that you MUST RESPECT the sovereignty of other nations. The fight is all about that exactly.

The problem with Obama is not an issue of a closet Muslims so much as it is a problem with liberals since Vietnam. According to the good old Sun Tzu, you make your enemies clear, and you make it clear that you fight to win, and you likely will. Protracted wars are almost always a loss for the aggressor, because the aggressor forgets or loses the clear objective that they are seeking to accomplish with the war.

How does Obama equate into this? He speaks to sugarcoat our war, which makes the objective and conditions for victory vastly unclear. It is problematic, and does not give us a clear goal. Blair is right in one sense: Radical Islam doesn’t depend on any single reason to hate everyone else, they must be defeated, ideologically and militarily.

We fight an ideological war right now, it’s ideological because politicians must quit making Islam a religious/political overclass. Almost every ex-muslim tells you that giving special priviliges to Muslims encourages more radicalism, because the radicals have pretty much shown that they could gain ground from violence, and it’s perfectly possible to gain more. Islam is working to ideologically overthrow the religious and the secular ideologies in America, mostly in the heavily radical portions.

Tony Blair is one leftist politician who gets the fact that “radical islam” will work to overthrow everything leftist politics seeks to promote and advance. Sharia condones stoning homosexuals in public, condones taxing the non-Muslims, and is entirely against dissent. Most of liberalism’s social/economic ideologies are irreconciliable heresy in the Islamic World, I am surprised that more liberals fail to admit that, much less why numerous people aren’t giving an outcry against Obama and Co. for their statements, and gestures toward Islam.

Exactly. While Islamists mutilate the genitalia of 10-year girls, and beat them for reading, and stone women for speaking to men who aren't their husbands, national and global "women's rights groups" remain silent about Islam, yet take every opportunity they can to criticize lack of funding or access to abortion. Lack of abortions? As if that's the greatest threat to women today. It's ridiculous.

Radical Islam appears to be anyone practicing the faith of the pedophile Mohammad as written in the Koran.
Anywhere there appears to be an Islam dominant culture you see violence to women, Christians and all others not them.

IMO, the only place they behave is in non-Muslim nations where they would go to jail of they did what they could in an Islamic country.

That is about the truth of it and why I believe that though there are some nonreligious peaceful Muslims, the majority that believe in the Koran to the letter are practicing a violent women abusing moon god cult.

Do I sound intolerant, or informed?

It has been nine years since the cowardly, murdering Muslims attacked America, taking over 3,000 innocent lives.

Michelle Obama has an open letter on the White House site reminding us all that September 11th is 'Nationl Day Of Service' day. Obama means to erase the meaning of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks from the American psyche and convert Sept. 11 into a day of leftist celebration and statist idolatry, and an "interfaith day of service".

The Pretender In Chief cannot have Americans remembering what really happened on 9-11-01. As an islamist he must defuse any potential threat to his true religion and denigrate the sacrifices of those who were murdered by his brother Muslims on that tragic day.

Don't let it happen.

The B-41 is no longer in service. Weighs about 10,000 pounds and yields 25 dirty megatons.

Here in Minnesota, shortly after 9-11, some lib gave me this business that I had to “get in touch with my inner child to deal with the anger”
So I got in touch with my “inner child”
It asked a question.

Your statement regarding Tony Blair.

Ok.... So why then did he support them in the Balkans?

Not to be argumentative, please believe me. The Serbs and Muslims had fought bitterly as you know. There were atrocities on both sides. The propaganda war was absolutely won by the Muslims. I remember the news media reports about a massacre that the Serbs were accused of.

The media used that as the springboard for the Clinton regime to attack Serbia with NATO. I heard mainly female voices on the networks literally hissing the phrase "ethnic cleansing". The Serbs got a press worthy of the late Dr Goebels in one sided reporting. They never stood a chance.

A few voices from US veterans of WW2 were raised, but not quoted, except on the internet. They had been hidden by the Serbs when shot down over the Balkans. It was the Luftwaffe that had bombed Belgrade in 1940, next up NATO.

Blair went with the flow. I will agree with you if you believe this is no excuse. Anyway, the Serbs were in the majority in Kosovo in 1900. Today they are between five and seven percent. Ethnic cleansing anybody?

You are correct in the Goebbels comparison, I just find it disingenuous when an ex-politician who had the opportunity to express this view while still holding office only really had the courage to express it after the burden of a reelection bid has been lifted.

Not trying to being argumentative myself, even Bush went with the politically expedient by recognizing Kosovo. In essence, balls apparently only grow ex politicians.
