Sayeeda Warsi, a senior minister in Britain's Foreign Office, resigned Tuesday, accusing Prime Minister David Cameron's government of taking a "morally indefensible" approach to the conflict between Israel and Hamas.Warsi was not a full cabinet member but had the right to attend and played an important role in mediating between the government and Britain's Muslim community.Warsi, a baroness who sits in Britain's upper house of parliament, in 2010 became Britain's first Muslim to serve in cabinet but was later demoted to be a senior minister of state at the Foreign Office and a minister for faith and communities.Britain's response to the events in Gaza was one of the factors behind the radicalization of British Muslims, she said, citing early evidence from the Home Office.
