July-August 2016 – Writing in Britain’s Sunday Times in March in response to the terrorist attack in Brussels, Belgium, former U.K. Prime Minister Tony Blair (photo above) stated that millions of Muslims hold beliefs fundamentally incompatible with the modern world.
Blair left room for ambiguity on the question of whether inappropriate beliefs belong to a particular brand of Islam or are inherent to the religion at its core. He clarified, however, that ISIS does not represent the ideology of just a few “thousands of brainwashed crazies. ISIS does not seek dialogue but dominance. It cannot therefore be contained. It has to be defeated.”
