Was it right for Tony Blair to attend the funeral of Ariel Sharon?

Ariel Sharon was responsible for the 1982 Sabra and Shatila massacre (Kahn Commission) of upto 3500 Palestinian refugees (men, women and children).

Tony Blair is responsible for sending British troops to Iraq based on a lie which has resulted in hundreds of thousands of deaths of Iraqi civilians and our own troops. He brought his type of peace to Iraq - which means allowing an environment whereby daily suicide attacks take place.

So was it right for one war criminal to attend the funeral of another war criminal???

    Sharon did not kill nearly as many Muslims as Tony Blair did. But at least Sharon tried to. And Sharon was always quite open and public about his murderous hatred and racism. Tony Blair never admitted to or took credit for his many mass murders.

    Blair is no longer in office. He is a private citizen and can attend any funeral he wishes. So yes, it was "right".

    Technically speaking, Blair is not a "war criminal". Sharon's actions are absolutely open to question, though actually it wasn't Israelis who carried out the Sabra and Shatila massacres but rather Lebanese Christians. The Kahn commission concluded that Sharon was indirectly responsible for not anticipating that giving the Lebanese free rein just after Gemayel's assassination would almost inevitably result in bloodshed.

    However, sheer stupidity and flat-out negligence also don't rise to the level of "war criminality".

    This really isn't a question, it's more of an excuse to rant about something, which is against the rules.

  • The both were closer than you think in their friendship, Closer than most think in their hearts towards their peoples and world peace. Not attending would have been a insult to the Jewish people and their religion. War is hell on both sides of the coin, If the Muslim extremests would not have started either conflict, then these two men would have never made the mistakes they did. War is hell for all involved.

    Right or wrong doesn't enter the equation. Tony B. Liar will go anywhere and do anything for a free feed and the opportunity to flap his big fat mouth in front of the media.
