Bomb suspect shot, Muslim Council of Britain assumes he’s Muslim before his identity is known. Hmm.

Here’s a timeline of yesterday’s events in London. One thing sort of struck me as odd. At 1300 yesterday, when nothing was known about the suspect who’d been shot, here’s what happened:

1300: The Muslim Council of Britain calls for the police to explain why the man at Stockwell Station – described as Asian in appearance – was shot dead.

Now why in the world would the Muslim Council of Britain ask for an explanation before anything was known about the suspect, and even after the man was described by some as Asian in appearance? Are they, perish the thought, assuming the would-be bomber was… ::gulp:: Muslim?

Hell, even Muslims are profiling now!
