The new thinking in Britain, "British official Lord John Taylor is now on Fox News calling for more “dialog with the Muslim community.” He doesn’t like the word “terrorists.” Prefers calling them “criminals.”

Second car bomb found in London's Park Lane Daily Mail
A second car bomb has been defused in the heart of London sparking fears that others could be primed and parked around the capital.
The petrol, gas and nail bomb was discovered in a Mercedes towed into a car park pound beneath London's Park Lane after being found illegally parked in the West End of the city.
It was parked in Cockspur Street, just a few hundreds of yards from the first Mercedes. The car was ticketed at 2.30am and then taken to the pound at around 3.30am.
The discovery, in the early hours of Friday morning - at about the same time as the first car-bomb was found in Haymarket, left anti-terror detectives asking "How many more?" as thousands of officers searched the captial for other suspect vehicles - and for the terrorist cell.
Just hours before the deadly devices were found, an Islamic fanatic chillingly predicted a terror blast in London.
ABC News reported fumes inside the car were so thick that the robot's camera could not pierce them and send back a worthwhile image for the technicians to view. With robotic technology ruled out, law enforcement officials say, a bomb technician fell back on the oldest and riskiest technique in the manual -- hand entry. Donning an approximately 90-pound Kevlar suit , one technician took "the long walk" from his armored response van to the Mercedes E 300 sedan and found a carefully constructed, large vehicle bomb with a complicated fuse.
The bomb technician defused the device by hand, officials in London said.
British police have a "crystal clear" picture of the man who drove the bomb-rigged silver Mercedes outside a London nightclub, and officials tell the Blotter on ABCNews.com he bears "a close resemblance" to a man arrested by police in connection with another bomb plot but released for lack of evidence.
Officials say the suspect had been taken into custody in connection with the case of al Qaeda operative Dhiren Barot (pictured), who was convicted of orchestrating a vehicle bomb plot involving targets in London, New York, Newark, N.J. and Washington, D.C.
Officials say a surveillance camera caught the suspect "staggering from the Mercedes" shortly after parking it outside the Tiger Tiger nightclub.
