The West can breed terrorists too
Somehow people are not prepared to accept that fact that a British born and bred national can commit an act of terror. There is this perpetual search about what sets these terrorists apart from the rest of the British population. There must be something unique about them – and hence, the news reports always say “they are British citizens of Pakistani descent” or “British Muslims of Pakistani origin”. Seriously, when businessmen like Sir Anwar Pervaiz make it big in Britain, the credit almost always goes to the British way of life, democracy, capitalism etc etc. None of the news reports even talk about him being of Pakistani descent.
Another common theme across initial news reports is that the London bombers visited Pakistan in the last couple of years. Sorry but how exactly does this matter? Since when was visiting Pakistan made a crime? These half-baked news reports paint a picture that jihadi terrorist groups have set up stalls on the airport runways of Pakistan, hiring anyone who gets off the plane. Who knows…maybe Al Qaeda offers them the highest discount? :) Later media reports talk about the London terrorists as having gone to Pakistan for religious education. Errr…so what? Just because they go there to learn Islam doesn’t prove a thing. Maybe it’s time that the West accepts that they can breed terrorists too.
It is because of this kind of pathetic journalism that the terrorists are winning the war!
