Islamofascist Apologists / fact dodgers corner.

And first out of the stalls we have this from Hizb ut-Tahrir:

"It concerns us that there is already talk in the media about the ethnic identity of the suspects and that suspects are presumed guilty before any due process. Given the now infamous and fictitious cases (ricin plot, Manchester United Football Club plot and the recent Forest Gate raids) and the despatching of the army to Heathrow airport in 2003, we urge caution before jumping to conclusions".

More updates when I find them, but the MCB and the soi disante Islamic Human Rights Commission haven't said a mumbling word thus far.

12/8 00.30 update

Some telling quotes on a Reuters report

"In today's Britain, Muslims are perceived to be guilty until proven inncent," said Anjem Choudary, a former leader of the radical Al Muhajiroun group which praised the September 11 attacks on the United States. "I wouldn't be surprised if it was another case of a high-profile operation whipping the general public into this frenzy with very scant evidence," he told Reuters.

(Maybe it was the provisional wing of the Methodists)

Abul Khair, who runs an Islamic bookshop near the East London Mosque in the Whitechapel district of east London, said: "The government says it's Muslims, but it's propaganda. Muslims can't do such things. It's not allowed."

(Uh-huh. If it isn't those pesky Methodists again, maybe it is the few remaining Muggletonians. Then again, we have all sorts of acts of slaughter against non-Muslims by Muslims everywhere the two come into contact. Perhaps if Abul closes his eyes and hums all of those inconvenient facts will just go away)

Meanwhile, still nothing from the MCB or the IHRC. Or Respect, or the hand in its glove puppet, the SWP.

And the BBC still just can't bring itself to the use the 'M' word and the FT has editorialised with this "The first response must be to adopt a foreign policy that saps terrorists of support without pandering to their demands." The drink of your choice to the first person who can come up with anything approaching an explanation of what on earth that could mean.

The BBC is an antediluvian, old, old world organisation that cannot deal with the world the way it is. It should be dismantled. Not even sold off. Just destroy it.

The police have taken away a "heavily pregnant Asian woman" in her pajamas. Tough. The six American cities over which these individuals planned to detonate their flights would have had thousands of pregnant women, thousands of babies, millions of children. It doesn't bear thinking of.

In my experience, Pakistani women are more vicious than the men. I guess all that resentment has to find an outlet.

I'm not going to spend time researching it, but didn't it come out around a year ago that actually, the tanks at Heathrow hadbeen there for a critical strategic reason? And that they did a foil terrorist plan?

And Forest Gate? I think the jury is still very much out on that one. The brother who got shot is a paedophile fantasist, they have a brother who is banged up for an armed bank robbery and £39,000 was found under their floorboards. I've got a feeling we'll be hearing more of this unsavoury family.

For me, I would urge Hizb ut-Tahir not to jump to happy conclusions, because the net is closing in on them and the British public is articulating thoughts that Tony Blair wouldn't like. But as Blair's authority has swirled away down the drain, and Prescott is being kept away from COBRA meetings, I don't think we need worry about a tap on the shoulder from the Thought Police.
