Tony Blair supports Israel's right to self-defense, inspect cargo bound for Gaza. No comment from Reuters

In an interview with Channel 10 news in Israel, Special Envoy for the Quartet Tony Blair stated plainly his view on the raison d'etre for the Gaza blockade:
There's no question that there are rockets fired from Gaza and that there are people in Gaza who want to kill innocent Israelis," he said. "When it comes to security, I'm 100 percent on Israel's side. Israel has the right to inspect what goes into Gaza.
Reuters, which interviewed Blair earlier in the week, is predictably silent when world leaders proffer support for Israel.
