How Many Paragraphs Does It Take For The BBC To Get To The Point?

Lets count them, shall we?

1. A man described as a "fanatic" has pleaded guilty to plotting to kidnap and kill a British Muslim soldier.

2. Parviz Khan, 37, an unemployed charity worker from Birmingham, intended to seize and behead the serviceman "like a pig", Leicester Crown Court was told.

3. Three other men, Basiru Gassama, 30, Mohammed Irfan, 31, and Hamid Elasmar, 44, have admitted other offences connected with Khan's plot.

4. The court heard Amjad Mahmood, 32, and Zahoor Iqbal, 30, denied involvement.

5. The jury was told how Khan, of Alum Rock, intended to use drug dealers to kidnap the soldier while on a night out, behead him in a lock-up garage and then release footage of the killing to the public.

6. Nigel Rumfitt QC, prosecuting Mr Mahmood and Mr Iqbal, who both deny two offences relating to the plot, told the court that Khan had planned to seize the serviceman in Birmingham's Broad Street entertainment district.

7. "He would be taken to a lock-up garage and there he would be murdered by having his head cut off like a pig," he said.

8. "This atrocity would be filmed... and the film released to cause panic and fear within the British armed forces and the wider public."

9. Mr Rumfitt told the jury that Khan had been "a fanatic" at the centre of an Islamist terrorist "cell" based in the Birmingham area. - Man admits plot to behead soldier

NINE paragraphs for the BBC to finally point out that this was an Islamically motivated plot. Yet the proposed victim's religion was mentioned in the very first paragraph. The article goes on to describe Khan's 'extreme views' and names numerous other abettors, though none are identified as Muslims.

Just another example of how the liberal media is more than happy to depict Muslims as victims while at the same time going to great lengths to avoid labeling a member of the religion of peace as a conspirator to commit a most heinous crime.
