Why It Sucks To Be A British Muslim Right Now
Posted February 5, 2007on:
The other day I was reading this BBC News article about the recent terrorism-related raids in Birmingham. It includes the following quote from Moazzam Begg (one of the British men detained in Guantanamo and released without charge):
“I hope that when the truth manifests itself that, metaphorically, heads will roll with the people who put out these stories in the first place”
I have never, ever heard anyone qualify the phrase “heads will roll” with the word “metaphorically”, but in today’s climate this guy (who is quite articulate, from what I’ve seen of him) felt the need to do so. I think that one word tells you more than the rest of the article put together.
