Tony Blair yesterday insisted “significant blows” had been struck in the war on terror but admitted: “It’s not over.”
The former Labour Prime Minister said that it was “deeply naive” to believe the West’s response to the 9/11 attacks had radicalised Muslim extremists. He said: “They believe in what they believe in because they believe their religion compels them to believe in it.”
Mr Blair warned on Radio 4 that the threat would only end when “we defeat the ideology”.
And he indicated that he would back an attack on Iran if it continues to try to make its own nuclear bombs.
