This man is an apologist for terror

Egyptian-born mastermind Ayman al-Zawahri has blamed Tony Blair's foreign policy decisions for the London bombings, and warned that London can expect more attacks. "Blair has brought you destruction to the heart of London, and he will bring more destruction, God willing," he said. According to the BBC, al-Zawahri wore a white tunic with black turban and posed next to a rifle during his outburst. It is precisely these sort of weasel words and moral equivalence that play into the hands of the bombers. Does al-Zawahri not realise the effect his comments have? Now more than ever, there can be no middle ground, no appeasement. By his ill-judged remarks, al-Zawahri has allowed himself to be viewed as an apologist for terror. Disgraceful.
