Blair welcomes ‘alliance of civilisations’ plan

Tony Blair has welcomed a plan for an “alliance of civilisations” to combat Islamist terrorism by bringing together Christian and Muslim nations, after meeting both the Spanish and Turkish leaders in Downing Street today.

Although details were scant on the bones of the proposal from the Spanish prime minister, José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero, Mr Blair welcomed it as a way of joining “civilised people from whatever race or religion to combat the barbarity of terrorism”.

…”I should think everyone can see the common-sense of having a coming together of civilised people from whatever religion.

“And that is the importance of it. And the term the alliance of civilisations is in direct contrast to the idea that we are in clash of civilisations.

“It is the terrorists who want to stir up these differences between Islam and the rest of the world.”

    Steps Towards the New World Order
    In contradistinction to the totalitarian world order, what should the rest of the world plan? Towards what world objectives should the democracies work? Utopian schemes, idealistic forms of government and cultural living processes have ever been the playthings of the human mind, down through the centuries. But these Utopias have been so far ahead of possibility that their presentation seems useless. They are most of them wholly impractical.

    Certain immediate possibilities and attainable objectives can, however, be worked out, given a definite will-to-good and patience on the part of humanity.
    . . .
    These are the simple and general premises upon which the new world order must begin its work. These preliminary stages must be kept fluid and experimental; the vision of possibility must never be lost, and the foundations must be preserved inviolate, but the intermediate processes and the experimentations must be carried forward by men who, having the best interests of the whole at heart, can change the detail of organization whilst preserving the life of the organism."
