Honest Enough Reporting
Special Envoy to the Middle East Quartet Tony Blair (looking older than ever) couldn’t wait to wade deep into the murky waters of Israeli-Palestinian politics this week.
According to Tony Blair’s website, the former British Prime Minister’s work involves preparing the ground for a future Palestinian state “whether anyone wants it or not.”
Speaking to the London Times (a local newspaper) Mr. Blair added: “A Palestinian state is the single, most fundamental issue facing our planet. I don’t want to oversimplify things, but a solution here will solve all of the world’s problems.
US President Obama cautiously reflected on why someone British had an Italian first name – “And just what kind of name is Tony for a guy from England? He should have one of those British butler sounding names like Jeeves or Mr. Belvedere.”
Meanwhile, Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoumto dismissed Mr. Blair’s ongoing efforts finding them all unacceptable. “He will do nothing to support Palestinian interests but everything to support the Israeli occupation.”
These suspicions were confirmed when after checking himself into Jerusalem’s King David Hotel, Mr. Blair had his security team remove the Arab delegation so that he could occupy the entire floor for himself.
