Preach it, Tony

The picture on the left shows a follower of the Religion of Peace, holding his holy book, which, according to Tony Blair, is 'progressive', 'reforming', 'practical' . How can we have been so wrong, Tony, as to believe otherwise?
According to Blair:
To me, the most remarkable thing about the Koran is how progressive it is. I write with great humility as a member of another faith. As an outsider, the Koran strikes me as a reforming book, trying to return Judaism and Christianity to their origins, much as reformers attempted to do with the Christian church centuries later. The Koran is inclusive. It extols science and knowledge and abhors superstition. It is practical and far ahead of its time in attitudes toward marriage, women, and governance.'
Does this even require comment?
Not a couple of weeks ago, Blair made a speech in which he appeared to be repudiating multiculturalism, and denounced 'extremism' and 'fundamentalism', in an ambiguous turn of phrase, which could be interpreted as a warning to the 'extremists' (so-called) of the BNP, or the 'Islamists', those apocryphal bad guys who have 'hijacked' the religion of peace.
So much for Blair's supposed Damascene conversion away from multiculturalism. Well, maybe he's not really a multiculti anymore, but a full-blown Dhimmi. Only the unwary and the naive, I think, really bought the speech of a couple of weeks ago.
The other thing that has me shaking my head is that Blair is reputedly a Christian. I know that as a Christian, I am supposedly not to judge someone's spiritual state, but I have serious doubts as to whether a real believing Christian could believe the things he purports to believe. Christian belief does not leave room for submitting to Islam.
I can hardly believe that there are still 'conservatives' who think Blair is the modern-day Churchill, and our great ally. They tend to forget he is a leftist, his participation in the Iraq adventure notwithstanding. I suppose the fact that he is a leftist, through and through, explains it all.
And lest we get too complacent and think that only the Brits are succumbing to the dhimmi impulse, consider this story, in which
The American Transportation Security Administration has instructed airport security guards to be sensitive to more than 15,000 Muslims traveling to Saudi Arabia for the Hajj Muslim holiday.''
It seems that they guards have been subjected to 'sensitivity' courses teaching them that 'suspicious' Moslem passengers may simply be praying. What, like the Flying Imams?
And speaking of the 'Hajj' or the Mohammedan pilgrimage to Mecca, many Americans were blissfully unaware of what it was not so long ago; of course the multicultists think we were too insular and provincial and ethnocentric back then, and we have to be 'educated' about things like the Hajj, Jihad, suicide bombing, and all those enriching spiritual practices. So we get articles like this in our media.
Apparently our government means business about being 'sensitive' to Mohammedans, as this story indicates:
Strip-Searched Muslim Woman Gets Apology
-- from the Homeland Security Department.
And not to be outdone in 'sensitivity' by DHS and the Transportation 'Security' Administration, the Pentagon and our Armed Forces are doing their bit:
As US troops battle Islamic extremists abroad, the Pentagon and the armed forces are reaching out to Muslims at home.
An underlying goal is to interest more Muslims in the military, which needs officers and troops who can speak Arabic and other relevant languages and understand the culture of places like Iraq and Afghanistan. The effort is also part of a larger outreach. Pentagon officials say they are striving for mutual understanding with Muslims at home and abroad and to win their support for US war aims. Among the efforts to attract and retain Muslim cadets:
� West Point and the other service academies have opened Muslim prayer rooms, as have military installations.
� Imams serve full- and part-time as chaplains at the academies and some bases.
� Top non-Muslim officers and Pentagon officials have taken to celebrating religious events with Muslims overseas and here in the US.
"There is a message here, and that is that Muslims and the Islamic religion are totally compatible with Western values," says Deputy Defense Secretary Gordon England in an interview.
All of this is very encouraging -- if you're a Mohammedan or a stone leftist who hates the West, and wants to see Christendom destroyed, by gradual means or by force.
It seems as if Tony Blair is not the only dhimmi in the West.
