Only in Britain: Car bomb illegally parked, given a ticket and towed away

The second device was found in a blue 280E model Mercedes. It was given a parking ticket at 0230 BST on Friday after being found illegally parked in Cockspur Street.

The vehicle was then towed to the Park Lane car pound about an hour later.

British authorities, ever vigilant for parking violations!!!

They towed a fucking car bomb. You couldn't make it up.

"Massive" Car Bomb found in Central London

A "massive" explosive device found in a car in central London has been defused, Sky sources say.

It is believed that a major terrorist attack in the heart of the capital has been thwarted.

Sky News

Update: of course in leftist and Muslim circles the usual kind of conspiracy crap, anything but putting blame where it surely lies.

Perhaps a rather harmless, but nonetheless almost predictable response by 'Leon' at from the Asian/Left wing site Pickled Politics, who hopes suggests the perpetrators are former BNP members.

Right on Leon. Ex-BNP members targeting hundreds of white women on Ladies night.

Some pointers Leon? Here ya go

Blair & Brown Thread

Bid farewall to Tony Blair as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom

Awesome news

Tony Blair is to become a Middle East envoy working on behalf of the US, Russia, the UN and the EU.

It's my belief that Tony Blair is about the only person who could change the middle east. Imagine a non-interventionist liberal-lefty at the helm: "Oh please stop being so nasty! Oh stop that bombing Israel! Stop picking on those Palestinian 'militants'!"

Nah. Tony Blair has got his head screwed on. He knows full well the precarious position of Israel, and that a commitment to a two state solution, with a complete cessation of terror is the only way.

And it's a two fingered salute to the terrorist scumbags around the world. And a purple finger for decent democratic values in the middle east!

If telling peoples and societies that killing to "protect" religion is wrong, that misogyny is wrong, and barbaric punishments for misdemeanour's is WRONG WRONG WRONG - if that is cultural imperialism - then BRING IT THE FUCK ON!

Salman Rushdie Knighted by the Queen!

No, I am not joking. Some really fantastic news

Salman Rushdie, who went into hiding under threat of death after an Iranian fatwa, has been knighted by the Queen.

His book The Satanic Verses offended Muslims worldwide and a bounty was placed on his head in 1989.

But since the Indian-born author returned to public life in 1999, he has not shied away from controversy.

A devout secularist, he backed Commons Leader Jack Straw over comments on Muslim women and veils and has warned against Islamic "totalitarianism".

The son of a successful businessman, Sir Salman was born into a Muslim family in Mumbai in 1947.

He was educated in England at Rugby School and studied history at Cambridge University.

The campaign to delegitimise Israel

It's the 40th anniversary of the Six Day war, here's a spot on comment piece at the Jerusalem Post. Here's a few extracts, but I recommend you read the whole thing.

The international community is being drip-fed the toxic assertion that, were it not for Israel, ours would be a peaceful world, a harmonious community of nations, living in tranquility alongside each other, respecting differences and working out disagreements in a spirit of compromise. If it were not for Israel, the Original Sin, the bone in the Islamic throat.

In Alan Johnston's Britain, the campaign is proving particularly effective. So much so that the union that represents his own profession, the National Union of Journalists, along with many academics, members of the clergy and numerous other opinion-shapers, now subscribe to this notion of Israel as prime irritant, prompter of terrorism.


Willfully overlooked by those who seek to delegitimize Israel and, appallingly by those who fall prey to the campaign, are the basic truths at the root of our Middle East reality, at the root of the Islamist terror campaign.

Willfully overlooked is the fact that modern Israel is not some upstart Western invention, supplanting the state of Palestine, but the ancestral homeland of the Jewish nation, the land where our nation long lived and has always sought to live. The world is filled with Muslim nation-states and Christian nation-states. Ours is the only Jewish nation-state. It is the only nation-state that the Jewish nation has ever sought.

It was revived by the international community too late to save the stateless Jews from the Holocaust. But when belatedly relegitimized, after millions had died because of the international community's failure to protect the stateless Jews of Europe, its reconstitution was predicated on the establishment of a nation-state, too, for the Arab inhabitants of mandatory Palestine.

The revived State of Israel, and a first-ever Palestinian state, could and would have coexisted here since 1948 were it not for the fact that those who spoke for the Arab inhabitants eschewed the partition and sought instead to overrun Israel altogether.

Israel stated its desire for peaceful relations with its neighbors in its 1948 declaration of independence and has restated it, and acted upon it, ever since. When Arab nations sought peace with us, we rushed to embrace them, even at the price of relinquishing territory from which we had been attacked and that we had captured in wars designed to eliminate us.
And here's the line from the Israeli Declaration of Independence;

WE EXTEND our hand to all neighboring states and their peoples in an offer of peace and good neighborliness, and appeal to them to establish bonds of cooperation and mutual help with the sovereign Jewish people settled in its own land. The State of Israel is prepared to do its share in a common effort for the advancement of the entire Middle East.

The declaration of the elected Palestinian government states it's goal of acquisition of Israel through Islamic holy war. It's Arab neighbours regularly congregate in mosques and street rallies to the cries to "Death to Israel!".

..Continued Palestinian suffering is not, in the malevolent text scripted for Johnston, a consequence of unacceptable and inexplicable Israeli occupation. Why are Palestinians still living in refugee camps in Gaza when there is no Israeli presence there? Why are Kassam squads firing into sovereign Israel from Jew-free Gaza, and bringing more suffering on their fellow Palestinians as Israel tries to stem the fire?

Israel's only real reservation about Palestinian independence is that the state of Palestine not be established at the expense of the State of Israel. But that, to date, is the price that the Palestinian leadership has set.

Yasser Arafat rejected a two-state solution at Camp David seven years ago, instead seeking a mass Palestinian population influx into Israel that would have destroyed Israel as a Jewish state. The Hamas government that succeeded him subscribes to an extremist Islamic ideology that regards Jewish sovereignty as an intolerable blasphemy.

The international community's failure to distinguish victims from aggressors in our conflicts is fuelling the campaign to delegitimize Israel. In failing to recognize Islamist aggression, to strive concertedly against it, and to encourage the marginalized voices of moderation, it is exacerbating the suffering of ordinary people on both sides of the conflict - failing Israel, failing the Palestinians, failing the region, failing its own long-term interests.

Israel faces Iranian-inspired enemies fighting asymmetrical wars - building bombs for suicide attackers in factories in the heart of civilian neighborhoods, firing rockets at Israeli towns and cities from crowded residential areas, crowing at Israeli fatalities, and crying foul to the international community when Israel tries to defend itself with physical barriers, ground forces and air attacks.

And much of the international community is buying the deception.

The world's media fails to convey that Israel, with its open society, allows access to the camera crews and reporters not only when it is hit, but also when it fires back - whereas the closed societies around us never countenance the documentation of their aggression, only their victimhood.

Israel's war against Islamic extremism is the world's war. It is a battle between those who value life and those who, in the words of the Madrid train bombers, love death. It is a war between those who cherish freedoms and those who have become prey to an apocalyptic, death-cult interpretation of Islam.

If the extremists prevail, the consequences will be cataclysmic for Israel. But they will be cataclysmic, too, far beyond Israel, far beyond this region.

Terrorism is not a consequence of an Israeli failure to make peace with the Palestinians. It is a tool of the intolerant ideology that has consistently thwarted all efforts at such peace, an ideology that seeks to replace Israel and to impose itself far beyond Israel.

The captured Alan Johnston is just one small victim of that extremist intolerance, forced to declare its sentiments. Woe betide those who would believe the words put into his mouth.

Spot on David.

Israel Attacks Palestinian Refuge Camp

Only joking. But imagine if they did?

The outrage! The media swarms, pronouncements by Ban Ki-Moon of the UN to stop the atrocities, minute by minute BBC accounts of the humanitarian disaster.

Photo's of the damage, witness accounts, quite possibly more fauxtography.

But it's ok. It's the Lebanese army battling at a 2nd Palestinian refuge camp. Of course anything to do with the Palestinians will get prominence on the BBC website. But with over 100 dead in two weeks of fighting, I cant help but feel people aren't really that interested in unless it's Israel doing the fighting.

The Muslim and left-wing blogs would be awash with verbose diatribes about Zionism and Israel. But they don't have much to say on the issue, funnily enough.
