Blair: Islamists Have Outmaneuvered Western Democracies

The civilized world is at a critical juncture in the struggle with radical Islam, British Prime Minister Tony Blair told a New York audience Wednesday: speaking at an event sponsored by the Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP), Blair said the West has failed to confront the Islamists’ false narrative – that “Islam is basically oppressed by the West; disrespected and treated unfairly; that the military action we took post-9/11 was against countries because they are Muslim; and that in the Middle East we ignore the injustice done to the Palestinians in our desire to support Israel, because the Palestinians are Muslims and the Israelis Jews.”
