Bombs because of Salman Rushdie's knighthood apparently

<<A MESSAGE on a jihadist website hours before the bombs were found indicates the attack may have been planned by Islamic terrorists.

The 300-word entry in the al Hesbah chatroom says: "Today I say: Rejoice, by Allah, London shall be bombed." It was posted by a regular contributor using the name abu Osama al-Hazeen.

Al Hesbah is often used by Sunni militants, including al-Qaeda and the Taliban, to post propaganda.

The message begins: "In the name of God, the most compassionate, the most merciful. Is Britain Longing for al Qaeda's bombings?" Al-Hazeen condemns the knighthood for Salman Rushdie and ends "by Allah, London shall be bombed.">>

(From the Mirror, but it makes sense )

Got to say, I thought that there would be repercussion over his knighthood, although not to this extreme.
Years ago I went to the U2 Zooropa Concert and he turned up (in London) and there were a few boos mixed in with the cheers. While he had every right to write, print and publish his book, he had to know there would be some repercussions, but I bet the poor man didn't think that they would still be going on 15 years later.

am i the only person who thinks that these terrorists can t be as thick as a donkeys donger?

we get a new primeminister.
bush is in america thinking ....ohhh hope hes still online ...with the erm.....fuck up which is erm....... america taking over the planet......erm..... i mean it did make tony look like a jerk off......

so here we have mr brown. new in - bombings all over the place

a) terrorists are thick as shit ( i doubt this actually)

b) it is financially prudent for the terrorists to continue a waged war and the provokation of the uk to maintain its american arse licking stance.

c) is a CIA thing. ensuring the bombings occur in uk to force brown to stand in unison with bush.

ok slightly paranoid but i reckon the third one.

considering most extremist muslims who have blowing (themselves) up to inflict maximum damage in the past 30 years have done so because of the situation in Palestinian territories (Irak and all is just a byproduct), hasn't it occurred to anyone that this might be to mark the appointment of supertony as new middle east "peace"broker?
