    Ken Livingstone, former mayor of London and member of Britain’s Labour Party, excused the terrorists who were part of the 2005 London terrorist attacks and instead blamed then-British Prime Minister Tony Blair.Appearing on BBC Thursday, Livingstone, who was mayor of London at the time of the attacks, said of the suicide bombers, “Go and look what they put on their website. They did those killings because of our invasion of Iraq. They gave their lives, they said what they believed, they took Londoners’ lives in protest against our invasion of Iraq.”He added, “and we were lied to by Tony Blair about...

And the wild thing is, all day I have been listening to talking heads and French mourners tell us that this has “nothing to do with religion.” Apologists for savagery, they explain, “They just want to kill.” Uh yes, but if we deny the motive the West is in for a world of pain.

Fox News apologized for similar on-air claims following the attacks on the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, stating there was "no credible information to support" that "no-go zones," or areas where non-Muslims were not welcome, existed at all in London. In his speech before the Henry Jackson Society, a British think tank, Jindal said it was "startling to think that any country would allow, even unofficially, for a so-called no-go zone.

The route would include some pre-existing roads to reach London and New York, but would still require thousands of miles of tarmac across the width of Russia.

While the mayor of London has fewer powers than in comparable world cities such as New York, it is a high-profile job which usually attracts ambitious figures.

    The 13th June marks the anniversary of the day Wat Tyler led the Peasants Revolt of 1381 into London. The English capital descended into chaos as the peasants burnt and looted the city, cementing the revolt as the most significant peasant uprising in the feudal period of English history. Originating in the South-East of England, it was when the revolt reached London that its significance became apparent. The peasants went on to capture the Tower of London, a feat which had never been done before. Two powerful figures, the Archbishop of Canterbury, and the Kings Treasurer, were killed by the...

The story of the long-lost guitar began in 1962, when Lennon and George Harrison picked up two, store-ordered Gibson J-160Es in Liverpool. Lennon played his on tour for about 15 months, until it went missing after a pre-Christmas performance in London. In 1969, it landed in the hands of John McCaw, a San Diego building contractor. He told NBC 7 that a friend had unknowingly bought Lennons instrument...

    Nothing quite so blatantly sums up the victory of neoliberalism in 21st-century London, and that citys relentless commodification of every aspect of its literary and historical legacy, like Platform 9 at Kings Cross. If anything, the vulgarity and banality of Platform 9 are too blatant; its a crack in the faade that demonstrates how thoroughly London has become Londonland, a nearly convincing scavenger-hunt simulation of itself, chock-full of royal bones and references to Dan Brown novels. To enter Westminster Abbey which is still nominally a house of worship for the Anglican Communion, rather than a historical theme...

    A Saudi Arabian accused of associating with several of the September 11 hijackers and who disappeared from his home in the United States a few weeks before the attacks on the World Trade Centre and the Pentagon, is in London working for his countrys state oil company.

    This is the moment a group of 20 drunken thugs stormed a synagogue before hurling anti-Semitic abuse including 'Kill the Jews' at young worshippers inside.

The attack, which led to four men and two women being arrested, comes amid concerns about an increase of anti-Semitic attacks across Europe. A Jewish patrol group, which works to reduce violence against Jews, said it had stepped up patrols in the area. In...

    Passengers on the South West Train service from Basingstoke to London Waterloo were left in shock after an announcer took to the tannoy to say that fat people should remain standing because of lack of space, the Daily Mail reports. On the packed commuter service, a member of staff reportedly said: We are going to be like sardines on this train, so can I ask that only slim people sit on the three-seaters. If you are fat then it is simply not going to work. One passenger was left furious by the announcement, saying: I am not necessarily a big...

    Efraim Halevy,the former head of the Mossad, the Israeli secret service, recently resigned as head of the Israel National Security Council and as national security advisor to Prime Minister Sharon. Very few men in this world are as familiar with Islamic jihadists as Halevy. In the Scotsman today, Halevy discusses the aim of Islamic Terrorism. In the article titled, "Terrorists' aim is to end western civilisation", Halevy says of the London bombings, "There was careful planning, intelligence-gathering, and a sophisticated choice of timing as well as near-perfect execution. We are faced with a deadly and determined adversary who will stop...

    Doing research for a novel. Can anybody tell me, what section of London would the families of merchantmen sailors have lived in during the late 17th century? All I can find on-line is "London." But I've got to believe that they lived relatively close to the docks in areas with specific names. And I suppose officers would live in a different section than that of common sailors.

    ISIS militant ‘Jihadi John’ unmasked as middle-class Brit By Yaron Steinbuch February 26, 2015 | 7:16am The infamous masked ISIS madman seen in gruesome videos beheading Western hostages was identified by media outlets Thursday as Mohammed Emwazi — a middle-class Briton with a degree in computer programming. The BBC reported that the Kuwaiti-born Emwazi is in his mid-20s and from West London. British authorities chose not to identify him earlier for operational reasons. “I have no doubt that Mohammed is Jihadi John,” one of Emwazi’s close friends told the Washington Post. “He was like a brother to me. . . .

    Radical Islamist group Hizb-ut- Tahrir which cleverly avoided global scrutiny while spreading its ideology may become a more dangerous terrorist group than the ISIS and it's presence in South Asia should be a cause for concern for India, according to a report. "While ISIS runs amok in Syria and Iraq, demanding media attention through acts of barbarous cruelty, HuT (Hizb-ut- Tahrir or the Party of Liberation) is quietly building a global infrastructure of radicalised youth and deep-pocketed Arab support in preparation for the global Khilafat," said the report published in the latest edition of CTX Journal. The group has cleverly...

    Boris Johnson says he intends to renounce his American citizenship to prove his "commitment to Britain". He told the Sunday Times that his citizenship was "an accident of birth that has left me with this thing. I've got to find a way of sorting it out". The Mayor of London, who was born in New York, has in the past been forced to pay US tax because of his American citizenship. He has just completed a six-day tour of cities in the US. Mr Johnson said he would approach US ambassador Matthew Barzun to explore what steps he had to...

    ...Al-Muhallab said, “You must use deception in war, for it is more effective than reinforcements.” Some methods of deception include: a. Planting spies. b. Reconnaissance. c. Feigning an intent to attack an area other than the actual target, for when the Prophet (sallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) wanted to attack one area, he would give his army the impression they were going to attack another. “If a man’s chest is too narrow to hold his own secret, then the chest of the one with whom he stores the secret is even narrower” [Poetry].
