ritish police told the Israeli Embassy in London minutes before todays explosions they had received warnings of possible terror attacks in the city, a senior Israeli official said.
Israel was holding an economic conference near the scene of one of the explosions. Israeli Finance Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was supposed to attend, but the attacks occurred before he arrived.
Just before the blasts, Scotland Yard called the security officer at the Israeli Embassy and said warnings of possible attacks had been received, the official said. He did not say whether British police made any link to the economic conference.
The Israeli ambassador to London said the embassy under state of emergency, with no one allowed to enter or leave.
This has been discounted by officials in Israel. Officially discounted.
All the news networks live video are available on the link below. BBC and Sky News from England, plus FOX News, ABC, MSNBC, CBS, CNN and C-SPAN
AP has what I think is the original version of this story:
Netanyahu Changed Plans Due to Warning
It's by Amy Teibel, a very anti Israeli / pro Islamist AP writer. She has a habit of providing anonymous quotes of outrageous Israeli behavior for PA propoganda purposes.
It's interesting to me that this story was ready to go within a very short period of time after the blasts. I wonder if it was pre-written? I bet a good computer forensics team could check her computer and find out. If it was pre-written that would just about convict her as an accomplice in this terrorist act.
Here's the bulk of the article from the link above. Notice how she makes her outrageous claims with no source then provides a seperate quote from an Israeli about a related subject, trying to imply that the first (fake) quote was from that person as well:
The story is now changing. Netanyahu was on his way to the scheduled meeting when the first blast occurred. At that point the Israelis were informed of the incident and got word to Netanyahu and other Israeli government people in London asking them to not go anywhere while the situation developed.
Here's one link:

USA Today has also amended their article:
but leftist nutjobs, like Antiwar.blog are still pushing "the Jews knew!" conspiracy. Here's a couple.
The Al Jazeera types and the nut jobs on the left will keep this alive, regardless of the facts. This will become another one of the Michael Moore conspiracy theory proofs in his next blockbuster movie, "Boing 7/07"
