…and of course they were not “gunmen”, they were Islamic terrorists. But if you have to rely on the MSM for your news you will never know:
Who are the attackers in Mumbai?
According toÂ AFP, they’re “militants” and “extremists.”
According to theÂ Press Trust of India, they’re “terrorists.”
According toÂ the Indian Foreign Minister, they’re backed by “elements in Pakistan.”
AP speaksÂ of “suspected Muslim militants,” and theÂ Jerusalem Post daresÂ to write about “Islamic terrorists,” but in general in the mainstream media there is the expected reticence about identifying the attackers as jihadists or as Muslims at all, and no discussion whatsoever of the Islamic texts and teachings that almost certainly inspired them to this spree of murder and mayhem.
Two Mumbai gunmen wereÂ British
Britain, exporter of jihadists. Will this revelation lead to any searching questions about what is being taught in mosques in Britain? Will it lead to any public discussion about immigration and assimilation, or about British values and Sharia? Somehow I doubt it.
British-born Pakistanis were among the Mumbai terrorists, Indian government sources claimed today, as the death toll rose to more than 140.Two Britons were among eight gunmen captured by commandos after they stormed two hotels and a Jewish centre to free hostages, the city’s chief minister said.
Vilasrao Deshmukh also revealed that up to 25 terrorists were responsible for the series of bomb blasts and shootings that targeted tourists and foreign interests. […]
It is known that dozens of British-born Pakistanis have travelled to Pakistan to train in its camps in recent years.
One security source said recently: ‘The camps are full and many of the people inside are Brits.’
Last night, there was speculation that a British Al Qaeda suspect reportedly killed by a U.S. missile strike in Pakistan last weekend may have helped plot the attacks.
Rashid Rauf was among five killed in a missile attack in a tribal area in North Waziristan on Saturday.
Security sources believe that at the time of his death Rauf had been planning a major attack on Western targets.[…]
Meanwhile, jihadists in the UK — like their stealth jihadist brethren stateside — claim victim status and claim anti-Muslim bias in news coverage:
But firebrand British-based Muslim preacher Anjem Choudhary backed the terrorists and said any Britons killed or held hostage were legitimate targets because they should not have gone to India.Choudhary, right-hand man to preacher of hate Omar Bakri, said Britain and America is at war with the Muslim world and their citizens must keep off the battlefield. (if that is the case then why isn’t Anjem Chaudhrey taken off the battlefield and imprisoned?/ed)
‘Muslims are being killed in Pakistan, Iraq and Afghanistan every day through acts of atrocity against them. But the media only report events like Mumbai.’
