This war on 'Islamism' only fuels hatred and violence 24.4.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
Tony Blair's anti-democratic tirade chimes with David Cameron's toxic manoeuvring at home and in the Muslim world

The neocons are back. That toxic blend of messianic warmongering abroad and McCarthyite witch-hunting at home which gave us Iraq, Afghanistan, Guantánamo and the London bombings is coursing through our public life again. Yesterday the liberal interventionists' hero, Tony Blair, was once more demanding military action against the "threat of radical Islam".

Reprising the theme that guided him and George Bush through the deceit and carnage of the "war on terror", the former prime minister took his crusade against "Islamism" on to a new plane.

Tony Blair's Middle East speech should prick consciences and spur action | John McTernan 23.4.2014 Guardian: Comment is Free
His reflections are as thoughtful, and thought provoking, as of old. But there is a new strain: wisdom Slowly and carefully, Tony Blair is re-entering the foreign policy debate in Britain.

His speech today at Bloomberg "Why the Middle East matters" was reflective, not didactic, and signalled a nuanced approach to the complex set of interconnected challenges in the region.

What is more of a surprise is that there is a need to make an argument that the Middle East still matters. After all, the peace process generates a lot of sound and fury here just take the noisy but fundamentally wrong boycott, divestment, sanctions (BDS) campaign aimed at Israel, one of the handful of democracies in the region. But there is, notes Blair, a weariness in the public. He ...

India, ISI and the Hamid Mir attack (Cached) 23.4.2014 Rediff: Columns
'ISI mouthpieces in the media have been quick to blame India for the attack. Clearly, the intellect and worldview of these characters (which includes fairly senior retired military officers) is based on Bollywood movies like Ek Tha Tiger and Agent Vinod... More seriously, the fact that ISI touts have been using this opportunity to train their guns on India raises serious questions about all the talk of the army being on the same page as the civilian government on the issue of improving relations with India,' says Sushant Sareen.
