London undiplomatese

With ambassadors like these…

This is an archived blog post from The Acorn.

Today’s cake goes to Wajid Shamsul Hasan, Pakistan’s recently re-appointed’ high commissioner to the United Kingdom. Complaining about American raids against al-Qaeda and Taliban safe havens in Pakistani territory he said:

This will infuriate Muslims in this country and make the streets of London less safe,” he said. There are 1m Pakistanis in the diaspora here and resentment is mounting. I’m being flooded by text messages from community leaders saying we must organise our anger.

The Americans’ trigger-happy actions will radicalise young Muslims. They’re playing into the hands of the very militants we’re supposed to be fighting.” [Times]Thus Mr Hasan joins the ranks of those warning Britain of dire consequences (linkthanks Swami Iyer).
