I am writing because in February a National Front member Neil MacGregor pleaded guilty to threatening to blow up Glasgow Central Mosque, Scotland's biggest mosque and to behead one muslim a week until there are no more mosques in the country.I haven't followed this case, and don't know the detail, but Yousuf does indeed have a point. If it had been an Islamic fundamentalist who was trying to blow up a Church of Scotland church I am pretty sure it would have featured on national news bulletins. Is it really right for the media to discriminate like this, or is there more to this than either Yousuf or I can see?
Despite this there has not been any media reports of this at all. We are trying to get this changed, not because this is any more important than other terrorist attempts but rather because it is equal and so should receive similar press treatment. After all, do you think the coverage would have been the same if it was a muslim trying to blog up Scotland's biggest church and threatening to blow up one church a week?
