Tehran, Iran, Jul. 08 – The Friday Prayers’ Sermon leader addressing worshipers in Tehran today laid the blame of yesterday’s simultaneous bombings in London on the West.

Yesterday’s multiple fatal bombings in London’s underground railways and a city bus left at least 50 people dead and close to 1,000 people injured.

The Organisation of al-Qaeda’s Jihad in Europe, an al-Qaeda offshoot, claimed responsibility for the attacks but sermon leader Ayatollah Mohammad Emami-Kashani said that the West, in particular the United States and Israel, carried the responsibility. “You who speak of al-Qaeda’s Islamic and terrorist nature, have you forgotten who are the mother and father of al-Qaeda”, the senior cleric questioned, in an address to the United Kingdom and the British Prime Minister Tony Blair. “Al-Qaeda’s father is in the White House and its mother is despotic Israel”.

In a televised statement yesterday, Blair said, “We know that these people act in the name of Islam”.

“You created al-Qaeda to plague us and you called it Islam, but now it is plaguing you”, Emami-Kashani added.

The Friday Prayer’s leader warned the west not to repeat their past mistakes. In particular he warned U.S. President George W. Bush to leave Palestine alone if he wanted terrorism to end.
