Blair's Moral Failure

Tony Blair's words of praise for Ariel Sharon, the 'Butcher of Beirut' and symbol of Israel’s wider impunity on the international stage, show his bankruptcy as Quartet envoy.

On Monday January 13th, the office of the special Envoy of the Quartet in Jerusalem, Mr. Tony Blair, circulated the eulogy [see below] he delivered at Ariel Sharon’s funeral, in the form of a Quartet statement. The full text of his eulogy, now accessible to the public, demonstrates why Mr. Blair has utterly failed in his role.
