JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: TONY BLAIR’S PEACE AWARD: WHAT IT IS REALLY ABOUT   Leave a comment

POSTED RESPONSE TO A COLUMN BY ANDREW PIERCE IN THE TELEGRAPH

Andrew Pierce couldn’t be more right in his main theme.

Blair is a ghoul, an ethical nullity, still collecting booty years after his crimes.

But the author does overlook the actual meaning of this award.

The award had nothing to do with peace as most understand that word.

It comes from Israel, and the blood-drenched policies of Bush and Blair served what Israel sees as its interests.

Why else is Bush so praised in Israel, the only country in the world, including his own, where the man is not despised?

Israelis have some very odd ideas of peace, after all.

They include never speaking to their opponents, assassinating their leaders, imprisoning others, and holding a vast population almost in bondage.

Attacking a refugee camp like Gaza with bombs and tanks – for that is what Gaza is, full of refugees from earlier horrors Israel inflicted on Palestinians – is about far from peace as you can get, but it served what Israeli leaders saw as their needs.

And it couldn’t have happened without the quiet approval of Blair’s comrade in war crimes, the wretched Bush.
