Netanyahu Changed Plans Due to Warning
Associated Press

By AMY TEIBEL, Associated Press Writer
Thu Jul 7, 7:14 AM ET

Excerpted:

"British police told the Israeli Embassy in London minutes before Thursday's explosions that they had received warnings of possible terror attacks in the city, a senior Israeli official said.

Israeli Finance Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had planned to attend an economic conference in a hotel over the subway stop where one of the blasts occurred, and the warning prompted him to stay in his hotel room instead, government officials said.

Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom said he wasn't aware of any Israeli casualties.

Just before the blasts, Scotland Yard called the security officer at the Israeli Embassy to say they had received warnings of possible attacks, the official said. He did not say whether British police made any link to the economic conference.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity because of the nature of his position. "

3. Just to clarify
Apparently in the confusion after the blast, the original AP
story was not correct. It has since been corrected, and it
looks as if the Israeli embassy was not notified until after
the attacks began. Here is a link to the updated story:

6. It's rare that we get to see an "urban legend" so soon after
birth.

I think this is the third I've watched get born: Jews not in WTC, Iraqi oil ministry, and now Iraelis warned ahead of time about London bombings. Cool.

9. First rule of Journalism
Get the story!

It is NOT get the story CORRECT!

First reports are often wrong. Think of all the stories we have seen at DU, then they get revised after ALL the facts are clear. But, if it involves Israel, it must be a conspiracy.

Funny, that.

7. ah the ever present israeli connection....
As is the ever-present Israeli connection, a staple among false flag operations. Before today's attack, the Israeli Embassy in London was notified an attack was forthcoming. As a result, former Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu remained in his hotel room rather than head towards a nearby hotel where he was to address an economic summit.

8. Oh Please. 9-11 redux. Some people must spend all their time trying to
find a Jewish connection to every tragedy. Anyway, here is Snopes on the 9-11/"Jews stayed home" story.

Hopefully Snopes will soon expose the London Tube Bombings/"Israelies were warned" story as well. Sheesh!
