This is London (Evening Standard) Al Qaida claims responsibility

We knew this was coming. Deep down. It came to Madrid. There was too much joy in the UK, the Olympics, in Scotland, G8. Something had to give.

Remember the Ayotollah (sp) and the hijackings of the 70's? There were no immediate killings. The terrorists would at least come to the table and negotiate for what they wanted, even if it took 444 days. Now, fast forward to the last ten years: there is no negotiation. It is "Taliban" or DEATH, There is no coming to the table. It is all about blowing up the table and killing the people who would come to the table, there are NO TERMS. The Israelis know what to do. Fight. Maybe they need to consider the meaning of the word:

Terrorists appeared to warn Denmark and Italy that they will also suffer attacks if they do not withdraw troops from Iraq.

The message went on: "In the name of God, the merciful, the compassionate, may peace be upon the cheerful one and the dauntless fighter, Prophet Muhammad, God's peace be upon him.

"O nation of Islam and nation of Arabism: Rejoice for it is time to take revenge from the British Zionist Crusader Government in retaliation for the massacres Britain is committing in Iraq and Afghanistan."
