Kakak Ipar Tony Blair Masuk Islam

Spirituality Makes Tony Blair's Sister-in-Law Convert to Islam
TEHRAN (FNA)- Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair's sister-in-law Lauren Booth said she converted to Islam after she felt the deep spiritual touch of Islam during her recent visit to the Shiite Shrine in the holy city of Qom in Iran.

"My experience shows that Islam is the religion of love and kindness towards friends and even enemies, Islam wants us to have the best spirits," Booth told FNA. Recalling her pilgrimage to Hazrat Masoumeh (AS) in Qom 6 weeks ago, she said that she felt connected with Allah (God) during that spiritual trip but did not decided to convert to Islam at the time and just surrendered herself to the Almighty for guidance. "I converted to Islam in London a week after (the visit to Qom)," she announced. She said that her respect for and acquaintance with Islam backs to her visit to Gaza in 2005. "When I went to Gaza after Israel's attack in 2008-2009 on Gaza I witnessed calmness as well as my Muslim friends' closeness with their God. That was unbelievable for me," Booth added.

Blair's sister-in-law revealed over the weekend that she has converted to Islam. Booth, who is half-sister to Cherie Blair and a Catholic by birth, switched faith after a recent visit to Iran. A human rights campaigner and journalist, she works for Press TV, Iran's English language international news channel. News of Booth's conversion surfaced after she was showcased at a rally in London under the banner of Global Peace and Unity 2010, attended by several Islamic activists.
