Used to be the only terrorists were in the Emerald Isle and it was always "those bloody Catholics" or "those bloody Protestants".
Now the news would have us believe they're all Muslims
Yesterday's Ottawa Citizen (March 30) had a bold headline "Ottawa Muslims held in global terror sweep", and then the article started with "A handful of Ottawa Muslims were being questioned last night in what authorities described as an international terror probe that saw heavily-armed Mounties storm the home of one of the city's most prominent Muslims.
At 1:30 p.m. yesterday, RCMP tactical units, acting on security intelligence briefs, fanned out across the city, arresting one young Muslim man and questioning several others."
Today's issue had a commentary by Kelly Eagan on " 'Muslim' angle gets overblown", the least I would expect, as well as several letters to the editor.
I checked today's front page stories on the raid and subsequent arrest, they had obviously been carefully scanned to take out almost all occurences of the "M" word.
