Al-Beeb And The Strange Case Of The Missing Motive

Rottie has got to this before I had a chance to evaluate it: the terrorism trial in London of a number of Muslims gentlemen of an unspecified religion.
David Waters QC, for the prosecution, said: "Jawad Akbar referred to attacks upon the utilities, gas, water or electrical supplies.

"Alternatively, a big nightclub in central London might be a target."

Mr Akbar allegedly said: "The biggest nightclub in central London, no one can put their hands up and say they are innocent - those slags dancing around."

Later, he was recorded saying: "I think the club thing you could do but the gas would be much harder."

Rottie is, naturally, scathing about these creeps.
When you put all of this together, then, the picture that emerges is one of men who hate us unconditionally, and who positively relish the prospect of causing as much suffering as possible.

Well, quite. However, one of the reasons that I had not written about this was that we are still hearing evidence, it is all still alleged (although given that these conversations are taken from tapes, I don't think that they'll be changing too much). However, as usual, Rottie's real target is Al-Beeb's reporting of the case.
So what to do? What to do? Well, if you're a leftist drone working for the BBC, Plan B appears to be one of scrubbing all references to Islam from the reporting of the trial. Indeed, over the course of one, two, three, four, five, six articles on the proceedings, the word 'Muslim' makes only one appearance, while 'Islam' gets no mention at all ... Which is, one might think, a little odd considering the obvious importance of the RoP to these creatures.

Quite so, but perhaps it is a mistake or an oversight. Well, one would like to believe so, but with Al-Beeb's other recent transgressions in this department—including such Boy's Own-style thrillers as Al-Beeb And The Mysterious Case Of The Grey Men, Al-Beeb And The Fascinating Case Of The Salty Kebab and Al-Beeb And The Odd Occurance Of The Unpopular Pundit—one can only really conclude that it is deliberate editorial policy at Al-Beeb not to mention the Religion of Peace even when it is relevant to the motives of those involved.

UPDATE: welcome to readers of a favourite of ours, Biased BBC.

To be fair, all of the Beeb's six o'clock reports last week mentioned jihad. There is only one religion that engages in jihad.

I'm inclined to give them the benefit of the doubt until after the conclusion of the case.
