Israeli Embassy in London Warned BEFORE Attacks

Just before the blasts, Scotland Yard called the security officer at the Israeli Embassy to say they had received warnings of possible attacks
A funny thing just came over the newswires - It seems that just before the blasts in London this morning, Scotland Yard called the security officer at the Israeli Embassy to say they had received warnings of possible attacks. So, why did they call the Israeli's and not the London Police first?

From Corp News:

JERUSALEM - 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.

Just an Old Cynic

FWIW:

When I first heard about it, I knew in my heart that this is too convienient. I can't see through the smoke and mirrors yet. I do know that Al Q. is our "boogey man". Anything credited to them IS A DISTRACTION.

Things I considered were, G8 failure, G8 success, Karl Rove/Valerie Plame story, something to do with Peak Oil geopolitical end game, Environmental Crisis/Collapse.

The first two seem too insignificant for this level of distraction. The last two seem to require a larger scale distraction.

My money is on the Karl Rove story. Is this enough to distract us from the breaking story that Bush's Brain committed a felonious act that is on the level of Treason? What would the village idiot do if his "brain" was removed and unaccessible by public attention in this regard?
