«The Quartet urges the government of Israel to freeze all settlement activity, including natural growth; and to refrain from provocative actions in East Jerusalem».
Tony Blair is just like Yasser Arafat. He never sleep in the same bed two night after each other.
Thursday, the blitz was in New York. And if Tony Blair was not there, at least his ghost could be spotted. Because his faulty political views on the Middle East was again entertained by the Quartet.
The Quartet of Middle East peace negotiators renewed its call for Israel to freeze settlement construction in the West Bank and East Jerusalem on Thursday. This was two days after U.S. President Barack Obama appeared to back off this as a precondition for new peace talks.
The Quartet – the United Nations, the United States, the European Union and Russia – said they shared Obama’s sense of urgency in seeking a durable Middle East peace.
The Quartet also called on the Palestinian Authority to improve law and order, fight violent extremism, and end incitement.

The Quartet could have told the Palestinian Authority to recognize the state of Israel. It chose not to do so. I guess it would have upset Saudi Arabia, who is a member of the VTO.
Tony Blair starts to sound like a bad tape recored message from the Arab League. To divide Jerusalem was anyhow never a part of the Palestine mandate given to United Kingdom. The UK was called to keep Jerusalem united, and under international control.
This is exactly what Blair has in mind. He know that neither Muslims not Jews can accept a two-part-Jerusalem. So he tries to convince them both that the original British peace plan from 1922 is the best options. They only need to agree who shall govern the International body, that shall rule as the «peace maker» of Jerusalem.
I am willing to bet some money on the next Pope of Rome.
Since Tony Blair has already become a Papist, and Obama is calling the pope «The Holy father», only a few stubborn Jews and Muslim are left. But as long as the Swiss bank accounts are open, so are the heart of people who love money above justice and truth.
Lets wait and watch.
