One minute’s silence in Britain on tenth anniversary of 7/7 terror

Britons observed one minute’s silence Tuesday in memory of the 52 victims of the July 7, 2005 Muslim terror attacks on London transport, among them one Israeli woman. Wreaths were laid at the scenes of the attack, and ceremonies held at the Hyde Park memorial and St. Paul’s Cathedral in London. Some British media noted that the failure of the British authorities to uncover the link represented by Mohammed Sidique Khan, who led the suicide squad in the London attacks, and his visit to Israel as a British tourist a few days earlier, when he met the two fellow terrorists before they attacked the Mikes Place bar on the Tel Aviv promenade. Had this link come to light in time, the 7/7 attacks might have been averted. DEBKAfile then reported on that link and also the fact that the Tel Aviv bar attacked was near the US embassy.
