A series of bomb blasts on London’s transport network leaves more than 30 dead and scores injured.
BBC In Depth Reports
My condolence and prayers go to the bereaved families, the injured and all who are affected by this madness.
I completely and unequivocally condemn this terrorist act and its inhuman perpetrators, regardless of the religion or ethnic background they belong to.
I got a call this morning from my brother Hani who lives in London who wanted to inform us that he and his family are fine and were not affected. Thank God for that. He usually uses the public transport system to get to his work, he got out just in time.
However others didn’t fair very well, with over 30 dead and countless injured and maimed.
There is no way that this is not a terrorist act, considering the coordination of the seven attacks which seem also to target the public transport system, the very important system that London lives on to transport millions around the city and its environs.
Various organisations have so far claimed responsibility. No doubt we will hear of the animals who did perpetrate this new atrocity. But I think we all can guess who there are.
The way to beat them is not to give in to them, and more democracy and democratic institutions, a complete overhaul of the education system in the Arab and Muslim worlds and the full separation of Mosque and State.
The time is now. We have to get this done. Otherwise we will be completely left behind and will suffer much more at the hands of these terrorists.
My heart and thoughts go to the people of the United Kingdom in this very difficult time.
