Â A while ago we heard about a case of wounded British soldiers abused and assaulted in their home country’s public hospitals, by- you guessed it-Â people of the Muhammedan persuasion.
Why the Blair government is unable to put their brave soldiers into secure military hospitals remains a mystery, could it have anything to do with egalitarianism in this strange multiculti environment?
Now similar stuff emerges, but not to worry: We are only dealing with a ‘tiny minority of extremists’- of course:Â
Muslim Brit Soldier Targeted for Kidnapping, Beheading
January 31, 2007
Richard Esposito Reports:
A British soldier who was both a Muslim and a Pakistani was the target of the Birmingham area fundamentalist plot to torture and behead the soldier in England and then distribute video of the gruesome acts, ABC News has learned.
It is the first kidnapping and beheading plot known to have been planned for execution in Europe or anywhere else outside of the Middle East and southwest Asia in the current war on terror.
Nine alleged kidnap plotters — all reportedly of Pakistani descent and all reportedly members of the same Birmingham mosque — have been arrested in the plot, British authorities said.
The soldier is now in protective police custody, two sources tell ABC News.
Source: British Beheading Plot Was ‘Days Away’

Brian Ross and Alexis Debat Report:
A plot to kidnap and behead a British soldier on videotape was only “days away” and led to the arrests today of nine men in Birmingham, England, a Scotland Yard source tells ABC News.
Most of the nine men are described as British citizens of Pakistani descent who are being held under Britain’s new anti-terror laws.
A British intelligence source tells ABC News that a British soldier had already been selected as the victim, based on instructions the men allegedly received by e-mail from “outside the country.”
The operation began in the pre-dawn hours this morning with police raids at 12 locations in Birmingham. Police said they would not reveal the identities or the ages of those arrested.
Police in England seems most concerned about ‘revealing the identities’ of those arrested.Â
