Blair's Sister in Law Converts to Islam
Israel National News ^ | 10-24-10

Posted on 10/24/2010 8:48:49 AM PDT by kingattax

The sister in law of former British Prime Minister Tony Blair has converted to Islam. Lauren Booth, the half sister of Blair's wife, Cherie, said she decided to convert to Islam after undergoing a “spiritual experience” in the Iranian city of Qom several months ago.

Booth said that she avoids alcohol and pork, prays five times a day, and wears a full-length Muslim hijab when she leaves the house. She also reads the Quran every day. “I'm up to page 60,” she told reporters.

I wonder if she’ll change her mind when she finds out what’s written on page 138. Too bad for her if she does ... there’s no (legal) going back.

My sister did. Her husband is a muslim and she converted. Now she's back to Christianity.

Clueless.

Until the first death, opportunity still remains to have salvation through faith in Christ, regardless the environment. Make no error though, there are consequences of befriending evil.

Ooooh.

She doesn't seem too bright. The copy I have here has 1324 pages. Another version I considered had 1700+ pages I think.

I guess she's not up the parts that explain the most appropriate occasions for wife-beating.

Notice that among Westerners who convert to Islam they’re always leftists.

For what it is worth, half sister Lauren has been loopy for years. She is also a noted underachiever compared to her sibling, not unlike Donald Nixon, Sam Houston Johnson, Billy and Ruth Carter, and Roger Clinton.

She’s getting her 15 minutes. The loopy family members always seem to want to take a whack at that.

Nonetheless, conversions to Islam are not unusual among England’s leftists and university set. Maybe she can wink at Prince Charles from under her burqa.

She converted to stupidity & it’s evident that it has already effected her reading & comprehension skill-set:

“She also reads the Quran every day. “I’m up to page 60,” she told reporters.”

Several months “soaking” in stupidity has destroyed this shamuta’s life!

Now that’s funny!!

Looks like she is not just interested in Islam, but, judging from her little shrine, she is specifically interested in the terrorist, anti-Israel crowd, Arafat, Mashal, Abbas, the PLO, Fatah, Hamas crowd. I understand that her sister Cherie is also a big Jew-hater.

Actually, Donald Nixon is a successful Seattle area businessman. I'd hardly call that an underachiever, or lump him with the likes of the rest in your list.

Uh, I guess no one told her that LATER verses supercede earlier ones, according to Islamic law. The latter verses contain lovely sentiments about betraying and lying to infidels, and the ever-wonderful "the tree and rock will shout out" Messenger of Allah, there is a Jew hiding behind me...quick come and kill him!"

According to THIS, Donald Nixon has been dead for more than 20 years.

When he was alive, the Donald Nixon I remember was always on the fringe of corruption, from bribes and kickbacks (e.g. Hughes Aircraft, Robert Vesco and Bebe Rebozo) to Watergate ... not unlike Hillary's siblings, Hugh and Tony Rodham. He certainly did nothing to honor his famous older brother.

Don’t tell the Imam - it’s a death penalty offense (AFAIK).

From reading the article it would seem that her mother is a beast with severe psychological problems. Her husband and mother-in-law sound like gems though and she appears, by this account anyway, to be a loving mother.
