Misleading BBC headlines

Banner headlines in the BBC and another sign of the malaise/wishful thinking that inhabits the mindset of those who run their current affairs.
Al-Rahma Islamic Centre destroyed in 'racist attack'
Not even a throwaway 'suspected in there, you have to look a bit further down for the legal disclaimers.
An Islamic centre in north London has been destroyed by a fire in an apparent racially motivated attack.
The Met Police said the fire, which happened at the Al-Rahma Islamic Centre in Muswell Hill in the early hours, is being treated as suspicious.
A spokesman said the letters EDL (English Defence League) were sprayed on to the building, used by the Somali Bravanese Welfare Association.
It might well be suspicious, though the EDL have no history whatsoever of burning down mosques.That and anyone can spray EDL on a building, the UAF have a history of doing such things after all and trying to blame the EDL.
I'm not saying that this wasn't a racist attack, however, the investigation remains to be seen as to where it leads, it might be an insurance fraud, or as I said before it might just be misdirection from those who wish to turn the public's gaze away from islam.
No doubt there will be many on the left and in the MSM who are determined to pin this on the EDL, that said there is no way the EDL would condone this sort of incident and if it was racially motivated then the EDL would hope that those who perpetrated it are sent down for a long time.

Taken from the Casuals site, Early today they were saying the graffiti on the burnt Somali centre said “love and peace” now they are saying it said “EDL”.

A guy claiming to work in the local council planning office claimed they had just had a planning application turned down.Perhaps the EDL should put in an FOI request

Whats the betting that this place gets rebuilt bigger and better and will be a proper mosque to boot?
