"to honor Tony Blair, the former British prime minister and now Middle East Quartet’s Special Envoy, with an award to express Israel’s appreciation for his efforts toward Middle East peace" REALLY inappropriate day to do that, just as information is coming out of Libya about Tony's close cooperation on rendition etc. with Gaddafi. Could this be Israel's least successful hasbara mission ever? Let's hope so.
