Al Qaeda Warned British Cleric: ‘Those Who Cure You Will Kill You’

LONDON — Months before failed bombings in Britain that were linked to several foreign doctors, a British cleric says an Al Qaeda chief made a cryptic warning to him: “Those who cure you are going to kill you.”

Canon Andrew White, a senior British cleric working in Baghdad, told The Associated Press on Wednesday that he met with the Al Qaeda leader and Sunni Muslim tribal and religious leaders in the Jordanian capital of Amman on April 18.

He said the man, identified to him by the other Sunni leaders as an Al Qaeda chief who traveled from Syria, warned of several British attacks during the meeting.

“At one moment in the meeting he said, ‘Those who cure you are going to kill you,'” White recalled.

White — who runs Baghdad’s only Anglican parish and has been involved in several hostage negotiations in Iraq — said he did not understand the threat’s significance at the time.

Of course, now we know what he meant. What a great new slogan for John ‘the war on terror’ is a bumper sticker Edwards:

‘Those Who Cure You Will Kill You’

Also consider the fact that Hillary Clinton, whose only real political legacy is her failed Socialized medicine scheme, likely will be the 2008 Democratic Presidential nominee and, therefore, the next President since the Republicans have imploded. Her main agenda will be to bring Socialized medicine to the US, and besides the obvious disasters that will result, we should consider this observation by Paul at powerline:

PAUL adds: At the Corner, Mark Steyn, Iain Murray, and Stanley Kurtz make note of the high percentage of non-British doctors practicing in England under the NHS. Socialized medicine, it seems, tends to chase British doctors into other careers or other countries.
