Al Qaeda Targets Tony Blair Again

The former head of Scotland Yard, Lord Stevens, disclosed this week that Al Qaeda assassins planned to shoot the Prime Minister Tony Blair and his wife Cherie during the Queen's golden jubilee celebrations in 2002. Lord Stevens reported that an "absolutely unfazed" Tony Blair pressed on to take part in the event with his wife, both of whom declined bulletproof vests.

It was one of eight such attacks defeated in the last five years.

The radical Muslims justify their attacks, such as the London train bombings, by citing Britain's participation in the Iraq war, yet this assassination attempt was in play in the first week of June 2002, nine months before the invasion of Iraq on March 20, 2003. The Islamists will always contrive a justification to attack the West to gull the gullible, but the real reason remains a murderous intolerance for other religions, philosophies, and ways of life.
