It's There. Six Paragraphs Down.
I'm so sick of this stupid obfuscatory reporting.
So there are apparantly a bunch of people under arrest today for plotting to attack the Sears Tower.
Why? Good question. Paragraph #3 reassures us that
the alleged plotters were mainly Americans with no apparent ties to al-Qaida or other foreign terrorist organizations.
Oh good. We can relax. It's okay. No radical Islamofascists at work here, right?
Residents living near the warehouse said the men taken into custody described themselves as Mulims and had tried to recruit young people to join their group, which seemed militaristic.
I assume that "Mulims" is a typo, and that the word they mean to use is "Muslims". Before Chris Wage or any of you others jump on my case, rest assured that I realise not-all-Mulims-or-Muslims-are-out-to-attack-us. Etc. Yes, any person with a brain realises that there are fringe elements of all sects and faiths operating on the perimeter of society.
But are we doing ourselves any favours when certain members of various media seem to take great pains to avoid identifying the Mulims/Muslims who are on missions to bring death to us infidels? I've talked to several people about the whole kindergarten-hostage situation in Russia who think that the Chechin rebels were just "Chechins" and had NO awareness that they were Mulims/Muslims. See, not all Muslims are bad, but many of the baddest on the world stage right now ARE Muslims, folks. Is our blissful ignorance helping anybody right now?
Face it. There are Muslims all around the world who want to kill all non-Muslims. You may have to read past the first few paragraphs, but that's the honest truth.
