Not All Muslims convicted in UK bomb plot

See if you can spot the word that doesn’t appear in the following from BBC News:

Three would-be suicide bombers who plotted to carry out an attack to rival the 7 July and 9/11 atrocities have been found guilty of terrorism charges.

Irfan Naseer, 31, Irfan Khalid, 27, and Ashik Ali, 27, from Birmingham, were found guilty at Woolwich Crown Court of being “central figures” in the plan.

Jurors were told they planned to set off up to eight bombs in rucksacks, using timers to detonate the charges.

Police described the men as “committed, passionate extremists”…

The word “Islamist” appears exactly once, near the end of the story. How long will it be before giving the names of these guys and showing their pictures is considered racist?

Just because somebody tries to kill you doesn’t mean you get to speak plainly about who he is and why he’s doing what he’s doing. Facts are for bigots. Well done, England.

Update: How do you get the BBC to put the word “Muslim” in a headline? Make them the victim.
