brits worry about muslim reaction to wikileaks reports

No surprise this thing is spreading like the plague.  Here’s how some of it is being reported here. Interesting reading that the self important buffoon Nelson Mandela thought his opinions and insight were required or appreciated. His claim to fame was what?  Just another Bush/America basher.

Britain fears Islamic fury over WikiLeaks: Report

LONDON: The British government has warned that its citizens in Pakistan, Iraq, Iran and other parts of the Muslim world could be targeted in a violent backlash over “anti-Islamic” views expressed in diplomatic documents being leaked this week, media reports said on Sunday.

The whistle-blower website WikiLeaks is to release almost 3 million documents on the internet, including thousands of sensitive diplomatic cables sent to Washington from the American embassy in London, The Sunday Times reported.

It said the British government has warned that its citizens in Pakistan, Iraq, Iran and other parts of the Muslim world could be targeted in a violent backlash over “anti-Islamic” views expressed in diplomatic documents.

Some disclosures may put pressure on Britain’s “special relationship” with the US by revealing the private views of diplomats on former premier Gordon Brown, the present Prime Minister David Cameron and his deputy Nick Clegg.

Brown’s rocky relationship with US President Barack Obama that included a visit to New York in September 2009 during which the White House was accused of “snubbing” the former prime minister, is almost certain to be mentioned as is Britain’s troop withdrawal from Iraq, The Sunday Telegraph said.

But officials said the real damage could be done by the disclosure of cables in which American diplomats refer to candid British views of key figures in the Muslim world.

According to The Mail today, 92-year-old Nelson Mandela, former President of South Africa is among world leaders believed to have been criticised in a leak of US diplomatic files.

Other world leaders who have clashed with the US, including Afghanistan’s Hamid Karzai, Libya’s Colonel Gaddafi and Zimbabwe’s Robert Mugabe, also come off badly in the no-holds barred private cables to the White House from scores of US embassies.

About 800 messages are from the US Embassy in London and some reportedly feature negative and hostile comments about Brown and the Labour Government.

These are thought to relate to the Anglo-US dispute after Britain freed Lockerbie bomber Abdelbaset Ali Mohamed al Megrahi from a Scottish jail to a hero’s welcome in Libya last year.

The cables are believed to include withering US assessments of Brown’s personality and prospects of staying in power. Cameron also does not escape from criticism.

Mandela, who stepped down as President in 1999, condemned George Bush over the Iraq War, suggesting the US President had ignored the United Nations’ calls for restraint because the then UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan was black. He also called Tony Blair the “foreign minister of the United States “ for supporting Bush over Iraq.

FROM THE ECONOMIC TIMES

Oh right. The race card. How typical.

That’s not all re. Mandela.  Apparently he was quite upset with his advisors when they managed to talk him out of calling Mrs. Thatcher to give her a piece of his mind. Or what passes for a mind anyway. Imagine the nerve of the guy.  Even thinking he was on the same level as the Iron Lady. As tho he were an equal.
See?  That’s what you can expect when you allow some people to learn to read and write.  Here’s a man who insisted President Bush be tried for war crimes when Mandela himself spent time in prison for terrorism. What a bad joke he is.

  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
