Movements in Gaza and London
Happy Fourth of July to Stateside readers.
Tony Blair has recently stepped down as the Prime Minister of Her Britannic Majesty’s Government. There is rumour that he might convert to Catholicism from the Church of England. Anyway, now he will become the envoy of the Quartet on the Middle East. In this connection, it will be instructive to read the end-of-mission report of a former envoy, Ãlvaro de Soto (thanks to Professor Hugh Robert MacMillan for this).
Blair’s successor, Gordon Brown, is a son of the Manse in the Church of Scotland. Today, at Prime Minister’s Questions, he stated that he would like to “be in a position finance interfaith groups in every community” around here. (Official reports in the Hansard will be digested tomorrow.)
