Who's the extremist?
"Blair seems to inhabit an imaginary world he has constructed. He stands at its middle as the King of Salvation, blind to all the bitterness and suffering his absurd wars are creating. Those who exist outside this fantastic realm, he insists, are deluded: from the Arab street, indoctrinated by 'years of anti-Israeli and therefore anti-American propaganda', through to the British public, which he fears 'sympathises with Muslim opinion', including his MPs, his cabinet, and the Foreign Office." —Soumaya Ghannoushi
