Tony Blair's sister-in-law converts to Islam
Guardian.UK ^ | Oct. 24, 2010

Posted on 10/24/2010 4:49:21 PM PDT by nuconvert

Tony Blair's sister-in-law has converted to Islam after having what she describes as a "holy experience" during a visit to Iran.

Journalist and broadcaster Lauren Booth, 43 – Cherie Blair's sister – now wears a hijab whenever she leaves her home, prays five times a day and visits her local mosque whenever she can.

She decided to become a Muslim six weeks ago after visiting the shrine of Fatima al-Masumeh in the city of Qom.

Her brother and the NU Labour Party engaged in the Islamification of the UK. Same thing is happening here with Hussein, ALL of TV including Fox and Hollywood.

She has a husband and two young girls. Her husband was driving his motorcycle drunk and without a helmet when he had an accident. He is now mentally and physically disabled.

She says she may were a burka.

I fear for those young girls.

Western people have been battered into believing that there is no God, that spirituality is some kind of mind game, and that everyone who believes in God must be an idiot otherwise everyone would be drawn to God not just those “ignorant wretches” who are uneducated. Then, they go as empty vessels to a society where everything, and I mean everything, is focused on and in orbit around the lies of Islam and they're swept up in the emotions of the community they're in.

It's typical of cults and brainwashing and it happens to the “educated” westerner because humans have a need for God and when they refuse to acknowledge that need and to acknowledge God, they're filled with whatever spirit first grants them a feeling of being a part of something larger than themselves. In the case of Islam, they're joining something that fits the leftist desire to shove their views down the throats of all who do not agree so it's an easy transition.

Converts are alot more likely to auto detonate. In all religions groups there is a well know phenomenon called "crazy convert disease." Someone who converts to Islam is not likely to be moderate in their views.

This is the inevitable effect of a hopeless, valueless, society that offers almost nothing to the English people. When you create a vacuum something will fill it. Usually something aggressive and nasty...

This will give a big boost to the crazies in the UK and elsewhere.

Tony Blair's sister-in-law has converted to Islam after having what she describes as a "holy experience" during a visit to Iran.

Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. 1 Peter 5:8

Somebody was not "sober" (paying attention) and was deceived by the Great Deceiver...

I pray that the LORD will send the right person to share the Truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, along with the convicting power of the Holy Spirit that she might see the truth before it is everlasting too late...

Remember the moonies and the hare krishnas about thirty years ago? Now it’s the mostlems. If these people were adults back thirty years ago they would be converting to moonies and hare krishnas. Now islam is the flavor of the month for those who really must belong to some cult. Don’t forget the Jim Jones cult, that really ended well.

These converts seem much more into the Islam than as mere cult-adherents. There’s a video posted above. Pretty disturbing, if you ask me.

Some great observations and also, islam is very ritualistic so it keeps people busy and preoccupied to keep their minds away from their problems—sort of like obsessive-complusive disorder.

She may have another epiphany if you pull out a knife and say she has to have her.(ahem) private parts cut off muslim style.
