Arthur Chrenkoff asks a damned good question 

Taking judicial notice of the oft-repeated but profoundly suspect claim that the London bombings are retaliation for Tony Blair's decision to support the United States in Iraq, Arthur Chrenkoff asks a question:
There are 250,000 Iraqis living in Great Britain - that's quarter of a million people, one of the biggest communities in Iraqi diaspora, and just under one sixth of the total British Muslim population of some 1.6 million.

So why, among the original 7/7 bombers, the next lot of recently captured bombers, and all the other people arrested in connection with the attacks, aren't there any British Iraqis?

If, as some suggest, the London bombings constitute defensive jihad, one might plausibly wonder who, if not Iraqis, needs defense against the Coalition's occupation of Iraq.

Damned good question indeed. Olivier Roy, in his 22 July essay on the topic, wrote "…if the conflicts in Afghanistan, Iraq and Palestine are at the core of the radicalization, why are there virtually no Afghans, Iraqis or Palestinians among the terrorists?"
