Al Qaeda, Multi-culturalism and Blair.

One day, Tony Blair surprises everybody by announcing the demise of multi-culturalism as official policy and calling for Islam to accept the pluralist values of British society.

The next day, senior intelligence community figures brief the Guardian that,

...Britain has become the main target for a resurgent al-Qaida, which has successfully regrouped and now presents a greater threat than ever before...
...Britain is an easier target, they have concluded, because of its traditional links with Pakistan which is visited by tens of thousands of people each year. Intelligence agencies have found it very difficult to penetrate the camps there.

Are these two events entirely unrelated or was Blair opening a domestic front in the war on Islamic terror.
