One may think British Intelligence is either staffed by idiots or are US political appointees. Well, my father used to co-ordinate the whole of British Intelligence and he was neither although we never got along! I can also vouch for the fact that the quality of their personnel remains super sharp today even though Saddam duped the West and perhaps The U.S. and The U.K. governments which conveniently chose to be duped on weapons of Mass Distraction J!
This whole problem goes back to the Soviet decision to deal with the Moslem unrest in their Southern republics by crushing Afghanistan and our decision to train and arm religious Islamic extremists to stop them. We succeeded too well and opened up a Pandora’s box of militancy which has spread like a virus!
Nothing will really change until there is just treatment and security for the Palestinians which The U.S. will sadly always support Israel in preventing because Congress is controlled by the Jewish American lobby.
