“Blair is a suspicious figure, and Palestinians do not welcome him at all”, said Fatah spokesman Osama al-Qawasmi.
I don’t think Hamas are over-enamoured either.
Ahmad Youssef, a former Hamas leader and adviser, told Al-Monitor, “Blair is nothing to us. Nobody is counting on him in any issue or step. Hamas does not take him seriously because he is not a decent mediator who has the Palestinians’ credibility. Blair’s efforts have gone down the drain, and Hamas has shut its doors in his face.”
How can the vile little man still think he can peddle his malign brand of ‘intervention’ anywhere, let alone in the Middle East, the place he has done more than almost anyone to fvck up?
