The great imam explains Islam for us: “Blair condemns bombers who ‘act in name of Islam,'” from Reuters, with thanks to Sam:
LONDON, July 7 (Reuters) – British Prime Minister Tony Blair, condemning the London bombings that killed at least 33 people on Thursday, said: “We know that these people act in the name of Islam.”
In a statement from his London residence, a grim-faced Blair thanked The Muslim Council of Britain for roundly condemning the bombers who struck in the early morning rush hour.
“We know that these people act in the name of Islam but we also know that the vast and overwhelming majority of Muslims both here and abroad are decent and law abiding people who abhor this kind of terrorism every bit as much as we do,” Blair said.
Good. Although I confess to being still puzzled as to how the New York Times, no less, however much it deserves the moniker “the New Duranty Times,” reported as late as last January that the now-disbanded jihadist group Al-Muhajiroun was Britain’s largest Muslim group.
But in any case, Blair must know what he’s talking about, right? Therefore I trust we will be seeing Muslims in Britain in the coming days leading Scotland Yard to the hideouts and meeting places of jihadists in Britain. Should we expect anything less?
