Two people have been killed and scores have been injured after three blasts on the Underground network and another on a double-decker bus in London.The quote is a report from first hours after the attack. It is not yet clear what the full and final impact will be. Most importantly, while I haven't heard it mentioned, I hope the response teams are aware of non-conventional issues (biological especially), and that there will not be anything beyond the already outrageous results.
UK Prime Minister Tony Blair said it was 'reasonably clear' there had been a series of terrorist attacks.
He said it was 'particularly barbaric' that it was timed to coincide with the G8 summit. He is returning to London.
An Islamist website has posted a statement - purportedly from al-Qaeda - claiming it was behind the attacks.
Never forget, Al Queda has erred before, attacking New York while expecting America to fold up its tent in surrender. But America did not break.
If there is another people on Earth, other than we Israelis, that has proven it cannot be broken with bombs, it is the British, and especially the people of London. Al Qaeda has proven once again with this barbaric act that they would love nothing more than to realize Hitler's broken dreams, to succeed where even the blitz failed.
Like Hitler, Al Qaeda may manage to kill innocent British citizens. However, also like Hitler, they will not break the British. As England mourns its dead, we mourn with her. And as England stands up to her attackers, we who value freedom and liberty and civilization stand with her. Some are already standing, others are welcome to rise now; it's not too late to leave your seat.
And no, the Mossad did not do it.
