The first Blame-the-Jews Alert of the London bombing comes from a young Muslim in Britain via today’s TimesOnline:
Out on Aylward Street, Kadar Duale, 19, and Hussain Amir, 18, both Muslims, both A-level students in nearby Newham, both born in Stepney to families originating in Somalia and Bangladesh respectively, stopped to talk, albeit briefly and reluctantly. “I feel bad, obviously,” Mr Duale said, “some people are dying. I phoned to check my friends were OK. They shouldn’t do this to get their point across. I don’t think it’s al-Qaeda, I think it’s someone more powerful, like the Israelis.”
Mr Amir agreed. “They’ve been ignored. To commit suicide is the only thing they can do to get their point across.” Mr Amir was grinning throughout this exchange.
