Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair's sister-in-law Lauren Booth, a rights campaigner and Muslim convert, said on Wednesday that he should be tried for war crimes over the invasion of Iraq.And to top it all off, she lets out a backwards claim:
Booth, the half-sister of Blair's barrister wife Cherie, is in Malaysia for lectures organized by Viva Palestina, a British-based organization associated with controversial politician George Galloway.
Asked whether Blair should be arrested and sent to the International Court of Justice in The Hague for war crimes, Booth replied: "Absolutely. He misled the British people and took Britain to war on a lie."
The conflict in Iraq was "an offense", she told reporters after a speech at a Malaysian university, saying it was organized well in advance between Blair and the United States leadership.
Booth has been a vocal opponent of the war in Iraq, and a supporter of the Palestinian cause, and in 2008 travelled with other activists to Gaza by ship to protest against Israel's blockade of the territory.
"Muslim women are not oppressed, it is Western women who are oppressed... Western women are bored, lonely and oppressed."Somehow this doesn't surprise me coming from a British convert to the RoP.
And just look at that, lefty Blair can't please even his own relatives.
