Haji Blair

According to Tony Blair, the policies of the government in Tehran are "based on a warped and wrong-headed misinterpretation of Islam."

Here, regardless of the merits or demerits of the Iranian regime, we see once more the extraordinary empty headed arrogance of the man. Now it seems we are supposed to imagine that, among his other achievements - he is a sublte and profound Islamic theologian. If only Haji Blair could get five minutes over the Koran with Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, he could put him straight I suppose.

What business has the Prime Minuster of the UK got announcing anything at all about the correct way to interpret the scriptures of the religion revealed to the Prophet Muhammad?

Should we expect him to start adjucating between the Sunni and Shiia or expounding on the minutiae of Wahabbism for the benefit of the House of Saud?

The hubris is Blair's, but he seems determined to bring the nemesis down on the rest of us.
