What if?

I am, of course, greatly relieved that Israeli warplanes did not shoot down a plane carrying Tony Blair when it crossed into Israeli airspace and failed to identify itself, apparently due to technical problems.

But can you imagine the frenzy of the conspiracy theorists if the worst had happened? It would have made the conspiracy claims surrounding the USS Liberty attack seem like a minor kerfuffle. Among the loopier Israel bashers, Tony Blair would have been transformed overnight from an apologist for Israeli aggression to a martyr in the struggle against Zionism.
