News link roundup

Too much work and too many emails to get through on to comment properly today so here are some links.
1. Sunny on Quilliam in the Guardian
Only time will tell whether yesterday will be a significant day in the struggle against al-Qaida-inspired terrorism in Britain. Nevertheless it is should be clear by now that the July 7 bombings, rather than leading to complete polarisation and an impenetrable siege mentality amongst British Muslims, has opened up diverse voices among them. This needs to be recognised. Nevertheless the duo will face some challenges

Sunny also has some interesting comments on Pickled Politics
2. Al Qaeda get annoyed with 9/11 conspiracy theories

In response to a question about persistent rumours in the Middle East that Israel was involved in the 9/11 attacks, Zawahiri said the rumour had begun on the Hezbollah television station, Al-Manar.

"The purpose of this lie is clear - [to suggest] that there are no heroes among the Sunnis who can hurt America as no-one else did in history, he said.

"Iranian media snapped up this lie and repeated it."
