Warnings to the Jewish?

With every conspiracy theory, there is always a Jew who gets advanced warnings.
Alex Jones, everyone's favourite fundamentalist, implies in his film "Terrorstorm" that one Benjamin Netanyahu got advance warnings of the attack.

"Army Radio quoting unconfirmed reliable sources reported a short time ago that Scotland Yard had intelligence warnings of the attacks a short time before they occurred.
The Israeli Embassy in London was notified in advance, resulting in Finance Minister Binyamin Netanyahu remaining in his hotel room rather than make his way to the hotel adjacent to the site of the first explosion, a Liverpool Street train station, where he was to address an economic summit."

First of all, you have to remember it does say "unconfirmed", then the correction that followed afterwards.

"I have just spoken to a source very close to Israeli Finance Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Netanyahu was scheduled to speak later today at an economic conference in a London hotel directly above the site of one of the subway explosions.
"The explosion happened just beneath the hotel at the same time the meeting with businessman interested in investing in Israel was expected to begin," said an aide to Netanyahu.
There were published reports early this morning that Scotland Yard officials contacted the Israelis minutes before the attacks to warn them of imminent terrorist strikes.
My sources in the Israeli Government are denying those reports. They say the Israeli Embassy and the Netanyahu security team received reports immediately AFTER the first explosion, warning Netanyahu not to go to the hotel.
"There was no early information about terrorist attacks," said Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom on Israel Army Radio. "After the first explosion an order was given that no one move until things become clear.""

Obviously this will not be good enough for Mr Jones, as he doesn't seem to realise mistakes happen in the press immediatly after a terrorist attack. A lot like the unconfirmed reports a "car bomb" that was reported to have exploded on 9/11.
