The Muslim Weekly is full of praises for the British PM Tony Blair, who either lost his sanity or thought it was the April Fools Day already.
In a speech given to the Foreign Policy Centre and Reuters Tony Blair allegedly stated the following:
“The most remarkable thing about reading the Koran – in so far as it can be truly translated from the original Arabic – is to understand how progressive it is.
“I speak with great diffidence and humility as a member of another faith. I am not qualified to make any judgements. But as an outsider, the Koran strikes me as a reforming book, trying to return Judaism and Christianity to their origins, rather as reformers attempted with the Christian Church centuries later. It is inclusive. It extols science and knowledge and abhors superstition. It is practical and way ahead of its time in attitudes to marriage, women and governance,” (The Muslim Weekly)
