27th June 2014 will mark the seventh year that Tony Blair has served as the Quartet Representative to the Middle East. This campaign calls for an end this insult to the region’s people by having him sacked as the so-called “Peace Envoy.”
This petition is addressed to Tony Blair’s four Quartet bosses: the United States, the UN, the EU and Russia. It is they who decide whether he stays or goes. Several public figures such as former UK ambassadors, Prof. Noam Chomsky and Ken Livingstone already support our campaign. Now it’s your turn.
To mark the occasion, here are seven reasons to #SackBlair for the seven years he has been in the role.
Tony Blair and George W Bush’s illegal invasion of Iraq destroyed an entire Middle Eastern society, killing as many as a million people in the process.
As Prime Minister and Envoy Blair has shown a consistent and blatant bias towards Israel.
The last seven years have shown Blair either incapable or unwilling to achieve anything meaningful for the Palestinian cause.
The way Blair works, it is often unclear where his envoy role ends and his business interests begin.
Since his appointment Blair has repeatedly called for yet more Middle Eastern wars – in Iran, Syria and now Iraq.
Blair has luxuriated Jerusalem’s poshest hotel at the taxpayer’s expense, while families in the Occupied Territories struggle to feed their children.
While serving as “Peace Envoy” Blair has also been busy hiring himself out at will to regimes with histories of human rights abuse.
