'a possible terrorist attack'

The BBC report on the latest Islamist terrorist attrocity, this time in Nairobi's Westgate shopping centre, includes these lines:
'A senior police officer originally said it was an attempted robbery but later called it a possible terrorist attack.

The Somali militant group al-Shabab had threatened to strike the centre.'

'...the Kenyan Secretary for the Interior Joseph ole Lenku said the security situation was "under control".

He urged the public "not to speculate" about the nature of the attack, and said most people had been evacuated.' 

and further down the report this:

'Some of the attackers were reportedly dressed in hijabs, and it is unclear whether they were men or women, our correspondent says.

Witnesses told news agencies the gunmen ordered Muslims to leave and that non-Muslims would be targeted.'

Let's see how a news organisation that isn't in love with Islamist terrorism reports the same story, ABC News for example:
'Gunmen threw grenades and opened fire Saturday killing at least 10 people in an attack targeting non-Muslims at an upscale mall in Kenya's capital that was hosting a children's day event, witnesses said.'
Oddly the BBC don't mention the children's day event, presumably because they want to minimise censure of the terrorists, sorry militants.

'Elijah Kamau, who was at the mall at the time of the midday attack, said that the gunmen made a declaration that non-Muslims would be targeted.
"The gunmen told Muslims to stand up and leave. They were safe, and non-Muslims would be targeted," he said.'
So they only killed non-Muslims, so their motive would be? Almost impossible to work out isn't it? Well it is if you support Islamist terrorism, otherwise it's f***ing obvious.

Mind you the equally soft on Islamist terrorism CNN are reporting in their CNN Breaking News email that:

'The gunmen shot indiscriminately and took some people hostage at the mall, a senior Kenyan government source said.'
'indiscriminately'- It seems that they were very discriminating, only kuffr were killed.
