Tony Blair: "Delegitimization of Israel is affront to humanity"

A week after the deadly raid on the Mavi Marmara, the flotilla vessel containing declared jihadis attempting to break the Israeli blockade of Gaza, Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair told Israeli daily Haaretz  "When it comes to security, I'm 100 percent on Israel's side. Israel has the right to inspect what goes into Gaza."

Last week, Blair was back in Israel as the keynote speaker at a conference on the attempt by Islamists and their extremist allies on the left like Naomi Klein and Norman Finklestein to de-legitimize Israel.

The Jerusalem Post reported:

The issue of delegitimization is not simply about an overt denial of Israel’s right to exist. It is the advocating of prejudice in not allowing that Israel has a point of view that should be listened to,” he asserted.

Blair said that “a consistent conversation I have with some, but by no means all, of my European colleagues, is to argue not to apply rules to the government of Israel that they would never dream of applying to their own governments or their own countries.”
