London's Mayor On Bombs and Bombers

IRNA Islamic Republic News Agency lets us in on a what's on the mind of London's mayor after a bombing:

London Mayor Ken Livingstone Wednesday blamed Western foreign policy in the Middle East for creating the conditions for terrorist attacks such as the 7/7 bombings in the British capital.

He denounced "governments which use indiscriminate slaughter to advance their foreign policy, as we have occasionally seen with the Israeli government bombing areas from which a terrorist group will have come, irrespective of the casualties it inflicts, women, children and men." Livingstone suggested that if British people had been forced to live in the conditions suffered by the Palestinians in the occupied territories, they too might have resorted to suicide attacks.

Ok. It's woth mentioning that Greeks in Cyprus live and have lived under condiotns at least in part, if not in whole, made possible by a British occupation, that is still ongoing, some 99 miles of Cyprus is still covered by British bases.
