PRESS RELEASE, 4th JULY 2011 (SPOOF. Please note. NOT to be taken seriously*)
Bush and Blair to open new Ground Zero Mosque on 9/11 2011
Ten years to the day that fundamentalist Islamists brought down the World Trade Center in New York with a plane laden with passengers, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair and President George W Bush will pay tribute to the rise of Islamism in the once cutely named land of the free, home of the brave. Thousands are expected to attend the opening of the Grand Mosque/Community Center a few hundreds yards from Ground Zero, where the remains of many of the 3,000 plus victims of Islamic fundamentalism still lie.
The two men most associated with the once then strong response to fundamentalist violent Islamism are today, American Independence Day, on a fact-finding visit to the building site. Even though the roof is not yet fully in place local Muslims queue for hours in order to worship at the incomplete “community center”.
Asked if he thought the building of this mosque was a touch insensitive, even insulting, being so near to the spot where almost 3,000 people lost their lives, Mr Blair responded, hesitantly –
“Well, things move on. Some of us are more easily insulted than others. This is a moment to seize. The kaleidoscope has been shaken, the fucked fluxed pieces fell a certain way, and President Obama has given the Mosque his blessing. Who are we mere mortals to think he may be wrong? Anyway, the deal is that the Grand New York People’s Mosque will be the first Islamic organisation to join up with my Faith Foundation for Religious and Global understanding.“
President Bush added, “I’m with Tony. As he said once, it’s all about our relatives and their morals, relatively speaking. And religion is always right, as long as it’s sort of, kinda religious. I mean Muslims too have been killed by non-Islamist fundamentalists, right?”
“Yeah, right“ muttered Mr Blair, as the compulsory armed Muslim bodyguard closed in menacingly around both men.
Mr Bush quipped, in an effort to raise a smile from the bodyguards, “If my buddy can’t explain it like it is, we all have to convert conform or die. Now take your shoes off Tony and let’s get right in there with the People of America.”

After a lead in from President Bush, Tony Blair NAILS why the war against terror is so necessary. The video is almost 6 minutes long, but this is the best explanation of why the free world must stay the course that I have ever seen.
NOTE*: The above is a fictional press release, of course. More on the real politics of the Ground Zero mosque at a later post.
UPDATE to NOTE: A commenter seems to have missed this warning. I hope I’ve made it clearer now.

A recent comment from an Albanian, Mr Leonard Dedej from Tirana – “It takes big leaders to make the hardest turns in peoples life…mr Blair is a big leader and a great man for millions of people in Balkans!!!for stopping a savage war!about Iraq I believe that the press wherever it is has not the right to judge on this issue because it simply is to small to judge!!history will judge mr Blair!as long as it is an ongoing war no one can blame mr Blair,after all he started something for a big reason..the press its often wrong because it fights for audience!!!”
