Muslim Peer Suspended From Labour
Lord Nazir Ahmed, the Muslim member of the House of Lords who allegedly offered a £10 million ($16 million) bounty for President Barack Obama and former President George W. Bush, has been suspended from Britain's Labour Party--and denies he issued a bounty, according to Britain's Daily Mail.
Lord Ahmed is quoted as saying:
I said that there have been war crimes committed in Iraq and Afghanistan and those people who have got strong allegations against them--George W Bush and Tony Blair--have been involved in illegal wars and should be brought to justice.
I do not think there’s anything wrong with that. If the Labour Party want to suspend me I will deal with the Labour Party. They will have to give me some evidence.
Ironically, former Prime Minister Tony Blair was responsible for Lord Ahmed's appointment to a life peerage in the House of Lords in the first place. Had he been indicted for war crimes, Lord Ahmed would likely not have achieved his elevated political and social position.
