Look at this picture and tell me you didn’t smile… through that lump in your throat
Islamic Relief is in Haiti.
This information comes to you courtesy of – wait for it – The Tony Blair Faith Foundation.
I have always said I’d report good news about Islam. Today there is just such an opportunity, thanks to Mr Blair’s website.

It’s interesting that I have seen nothing about this on the mainstream press. Not that I chase around reading their words of wisdom.
Do you wonder why I have such low regard for the British press, especially their headline writers? Read this Times article.
All logic would lead one to expect that this headline and article should express relief that Tony Blair “delayed” a decision on the invasion until the diplomatic routes had all been exhausted, especially since the antis accuse him of rushing into the conflict.
But no! That would be to dilute their message. Whatever that is!
So what does The Times say? (The Times is one of the more balanced British publications, by the way.) They yell – “denial and dithering” – both insults linked to Geoff Hoon’s name as Blair’s accuser:
Thoroughly despicable headline writing and not in any way Mr Hoon’s meaning in his evidence.
I’ll add some more reports from our honest, reliable and trustworthy press when … if I find them.
Here’s all I can find so far, neither from the mainstream. I think the second is not British. American? Middle Eastern? I don’t know.
