The Blair "White Paper"

"Blair wants to prove that he is not engaging in double standards by imposing his will on Iraq while turning a blind eye to supposed Israeli malfeasance. He wants to prove that military action against Saddam was not a war on the Arabs and Islam. And the proof will be seen in his campaign to produce justice for the Palestinians. He and his ministers have said as much.

He wants to be seen, by his party and by the Arab and Islamic worlds, to be leading the struggle both against Israel and for a Palestinian state. And for that, he will receive the unquestioning support of his European partners.That road map will take Israel through some long grass and rocky terrain."
