Iran in Britain

Andy, here’s the original Guardian story about recruitment of British Muslims to act as suicide bombers.

Supposedly, this targets Israel and the United States in Iraq. We’re told that the only case in which a British Muslim suicide bomber would attack within Britain itself would be to try to kill Salman Rushdie. Despite these supposed restrictions, this pretty clearly serves as a direct threat to Britain in the case of a Western raid on Iran’s nuclear facilities. Take out our bomb, and your Muslim citizens will bomb you: “…we believe every Muslim has the potential to turn into a bomb against the West.”
