"Terrorist Attack"

Update: Pictures you won't find in the MSM. This is terrorism. WARNING GRAPHIC

The BBC also incorrectly describes Pickled Politics "[who] use the Iraq war, Western foreign policy and international media coverage to discuss Tuesday's events". There is often a tendancy to ignore the woolly mammoth in the room over at PP, but even they didn't say something so, well, stupid...

July 12 (Bloomberg) -- Mumbai, India's commercial hub, was rocked by seven explosions on trains and in commuter stations yesterday, killing at least 163 people and injuring 459 in the nation's worst terrorist attack in 13 years.

The explosions occurred within 30 minutes starting at 6 p.m., tearing apart train cars and ripping through rush-hour crowds in this city of 16 million. Mumbai police commissioner A.N. Roy said in a televised interview that much of the rail network was suspended and phone services were disrupted.

The Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorist group, which seeks an end to Indian control of Jammu & Kashmir state, claimed responsibility,
Reuters on the other hand respectfully avoids any "value-judgements" by placing terrorist attack in quotes;

Pakistan's Foreign Ministry issued a statement saying that President Pervez Musharraf and Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz strongly condemned the "terrorist attack" in Mumbai.

    Another barbaric attack by adherents of the Religion of Peace.

    This presents a dilemma for the Guardianistas - how to blame Israel and Bush? And since it was an attack on Hindus rather than white Christians or Westerners, how do they portray it as a struggle against "oppression"?

    But don't worry - they'll find a way.

    By doing what they are good at; avoiding the woolly mammoth in the room. And anyone referring to said woolly mammoth will be deemed racist.

    You are correct, it is not a "terrorist attack", it is a TERRORIST ATTACK.

    Being against Islamism, is not racist.

    A - it's outrageous that the wedding couple and guests would be "required" to be segregrated and wear veils.

    On your average infidel days, are Muslims "required" to eat pork and drink alcohol?

    The point is, infidels will be required to wear veils and be segregrated. I thought Islamic laws only applied to Muslims?
