    He was supposed to bring peace to the ME four years ago.

    Has he done anything yet?

    Did he get fired?

    What?

    The only things Tony Blair has ever done well is lying and lining his own pockets. You'll have a long wait if you're expecting that charlatan to perform.

    Bring peace with these animals, dink?

    Allah, oh our Lord
    Vanquish your enemies, enemies of the religion [Islam]
    in all places
    Allah, strike the Jews and their sympathizers,
    the Christians and their supporters
    the Communists and their adherents
    Allah, count them and kill them to the last one,
    and don't even leave even one.

    The Quartet's envoy to the Middle East, Tony Blair, is trying to improve his perpetually tarnished image and convince the world that his job actually matters. Speaking at the International Conference on Economic Regional Cooperation in Tel Aviv, he said that he was optimistic about the prospects for peace in the region. He said that he was working to get the Israelis and the Palestinians back to the negotiating table and the only way to resolve the conflict was the creation of a viable Palestinian state (How many times have we heard this before?). Tony Blair was hosted at the conference by Silvan Shalom, the Deputy Prime Minister in an Israeli government which no longer bothers to hide its contempt for the "peace process" and the very idea of peaceful coexistence with the Palestinians and its opposition to the creation of anything resembling a viable Palestinian state.

    Tony Blair's latest intervention comes at a time when even President Mahmoud Abbas and the Palestinian Authority seem to have given up on the peace process. For years, they bent over backwards to please the Israelis and the West, arresting Palestinians who believed in resistance to the Israeli occupation, engaging in armed conflict with Hamas after it won democratic elections, and offering unpalatable concessions to the Israelis which caused it great embarrassment when they were leaked. All they got in return was a deepening of the occupation and the expansion of settlements.

    The Palestinian Authority now seems to have given up on the negotiations in practice, if not officially. It signed a reconciliation agreement with Hamas in May, over vociferous threats from the Israelis that that would mean the end of the peace process. No one took those threats seriously because it was quite obvious that there was no peace process.

    The Quartet's envoy is no longer relevant
