Islamophobia And A Jedi Plot To Kill The Pope

by | 22nd, September 2010

MORE on that “Muslim plot” to kill the Pope – the alleged “joke” by six men of North African origin that conveniently hit the media at the same time the head of MI5 was talking up the threat of terrorism at the London Olympics. The Daily Express called it a “Muslim plot” on its front page.

Only it wasn’t a plot cooked up by all Muslims to kill the Pope. In the much the same was as the 18-year-old man arrested after a laser beam was fired at a police helicopter during the Pope’s visit to Glasgow was not part of a Christian / Jedi plot to kill the Pope.

You might suppose that when the “Muslim plot” turned out to be nothing of the sort, the Express would put a huge sigh of relief on its front page? Not a chance. The follow up story was buried on Page 9.

Islamophobia rules, OK!

But humour wins!
