Palestinian Prime Minister Haniyeh leveled harsh criticism at British premier Tony Blair for what he called one-sided policies that favor Israel. In a column published in The Guardian Saturday, Haniyeh said the Blair government sees the Middle East "through Israeli eyes" and supports a "policy of punishment" toward the Palestinians. Palestinian officials called on Blair to cancel his scheduled visit to the Palestinian Authority Sunday.
