22 Dead, 50+ injured, ISIS claim responsibility but it's nothing to do with Islam

Breitbart, amongst others, report that ISIS have claimed responsibility for the bomb attack on the Manchester Arena.

"With Allah's grace and support, a soldier of the Khilafah managed to place explosive devices in the midst of the gatherings of the Crusaders in the British city of Manchester, in revenge for Allah's religion, in an endeavour to terrorise the mushrikin, and in response to their transgressions against the lands of the Muslims. The explosive devices were detonated in the shameless concert arena, resulting in 30 Crusaders being killed and 70 others being wounded. And what comes next will be more severe on the worshippers of the Cross and their allies, by Allah's permission. And all praise is due to Allah, Lord of the creation."

I wonder if, when the BBC get around to reporting that ISIS have claimed responsibility, the BBC will quote their statement in full. Somehow I think not, as to do so would be to admit that the religion of Islam does have an impact on the beliefs and actions of the followers of ISIS.
