Revealed: Buddhists, Christians, Jews, Hindus NOT part of UK airplane plot!

It took a few tries, but I was finally able to find a news item on the latest foiled terrorist plot that gives a hint as to the background of the plotters.

The Times of London indelicately states in the second paragraph of this article:
So far 21 suspects - believed to be British citizens, many of Pakistani origin - have been arrested in overnight raids in London, the Thames Valley and Birmingham...
But then again, you didn't need me to tell you this.

Update at 08:33 on 10 August: Drinking From Home has a good post on the verbal gymnastics being performed by Britain's media in which they're painfully avoiding the words "muslim" or "islamic".
