A bombing which was blamed by the authorities on Palestinian students, but which MI5 whistleblower Annie Machon says was a false flag attack by Mossad to undermine support for the Palestinians.

The Israeli Embassy in London was subjected to a bombing attack on 26 July 1994, eight days after the AMIA bombing in Argentina. A car bomb exploded outside the embassy, injuring 20 people. The bomb comprised about 20 to 30 pounds of explosive, and blew up minutes after the driver left it.

The Israeli Ambassador and British intelligence experts blamed pro-Iranian extremists, allegedly linked to Hezbollah. Thirteen hours later a similar car bomb exploded outside Balfour House, the headquarters of the main Zionist organisation in London, injuring six.

Five Palestinians were arrested in London in January 1995 in connection with the bombings. In December 1996, two of them, both Palestinian science graduates who were educated in the UK, Jawad Botmeh and Samar Alami, were convicted of "conspiracy to cause explosions". They were sentenced to 20 years in jail, and lost their appeal in 2001. Nobody has been convicted for the actual bombings.

Jawad Botmeh was released from prison on 5 August 2008. Samar Alami was released in June 2009 and deported to Lebanon. Both continue to protest their complete innocence of any crime. Their UK solicitor Gareth Pierce is also emphatic about their innocence and that their case represents a gross miscarriage of justice[1], as did campaigning journalist, the late Paul Foot.[2] Annie Machon, MI5 whistleblower states that the two were framed, probably by Mossad, as a means of stemming sympathy for the Palestinian cause.
