Senior Tory says that suicide attacks are ‘totally explicable’

A senior Tory has broken ranks with his party by saying that the London suicide attacks were “totally explicable” because of the deep anger felt by many British Muslims over Iraq.

The Government found itself under pressure over the connection yesterday as Muslim leaders told Hazel Blears, the Home Office minister, of the anger felt in their community about British foreign policy. They also said that disproportionate targeting of Asians by police under stop-and-search powers threatened to stoke up resentment among Muslims.

Maybe, hopefully soon, US politicians will also openly oppose the war and the insanity and lies that led to it.
