Even this creep thinks it was wrong to keep Hamas out of talks at the behest of Israel. Tony Blair says he regrets siding with Israel and George W Bush over Hamas boycott in 2006 Former PM says the international community should have tried to 'pull Hamas into a dialogue and shifted their positions' For the first time, Tony Blair has said he and other world leaders were wrong to give in to Israeli pressure to boycott Hamas after it won the Palestinian elections in 2006. Mr Blair, who was Prime Minister at the time, supported President George W Bush’s push to halt aid to and cut ties with the newly elected Hamas-led authority in Gaza unless it agreed to recognise Israel and renounce violence. A year after Hamas rejected the terms. The boycott and Israel’s economic blockade of Gaza came into force, and remains in effect today........ Tony Blair 'regrets siding with Israel over Hamas'
