Blair: How We Can Defeat Islamist Terrorism

The terrorist attack of September 11 2001 destroyed lives and changed lives. It is impossible to be [at Ground Zero, New York] without feeling an immense emotional connection to the victims, their families and to this city and this country.

So much savage grief and injustice meted out in a single day by an act of unspeakable and incomprehensible evil: unspeakable because of its barbarity; incomprehensible because it was carried out in the name of religious faith.

We have spent the years since then trying to make sense of it and to combat those who share the worldview which led to it.


No one asked you Tony.

    Expel it, and the agar that sustains it.

    The first step in stopping Muzzy terrorism is stopping Muzzy immigration, so the whole UK should sit patiently and get lectured by the bastard who opened the flood gates in the first place.

  • The key to combating it is hidden in Blair’s otherwise useless musings: “worldview”.

    The West has done NOTHING to combat the Islamic worldview — it has done nothing on the propaganda front. When we fought Hitler and the Nazis we flooded the airwaves and the media with anti-Nazi propaganda — we did everything within our means to destroy the roots of that ideology. We have done nothing comparable to “take the wind out of the sails” of Islamism on the ideological front.

    Do what England always does. Blame the Jews.

    As long as they don’t live among us, there is no problem.

    Hey, Tony.
    Build a time machine and go back and kill yourself.
    The problem you created in Britain will disappear.

    Blair understands the problem. He even accepts the idea that the problem is intimately connected to Islam. What he does not get is that the solution does not lie in pretending that there is a “moderate” Islam, but rather in recognising there isn’t. There are Muslims in the process of leaving Islam, but the core religion is not going to change anytime soon.

    Blair does not want to talk about a clash of civilizations; but for the past 1400 years that is exactly what has been going on. Why would this change now? Especially as a leftist infested West seems unwilling to repel Islamic invaders? If I was a Muslim theorist I would be suggesting more pressure, more attacks, more migration. The Euros are pretty much all done fighting save a few, unenlightened, Eastern Europeans. Push on and Islam wins. Blair has no clue.

    Right. Nobody asked you Blair. What did you achieve as “middle east peace envoy”?
    Nothing that’s what.
