The first page of this New York Times story about the seventeen terrorists arrested in Canada doesn't even mention that they are Muslims.
Don't you think that's the most important part of the story?

As michelle malkin appropriately ridicules, I find it a preposterous claim to say these people were from a 'broad strata' of society. It seems one can't mention the word muslim or islam these days in the MSM without explicitly tacking on "religion of peace". Now I understand that denouncing these people as radical muslims might seem like a bad idea because it could provoke retaliation against canada, but something tells me these people werent planing to move 3 tonnes of explosive materials across the border.

Oddly enough, the Times sees fit to say that the suspects were mainly of South Asian descent. Apparently national origin is okay to mention, but not religion.
In fairness to the Times, their latest article (Details Emerge About Suspects in Canada Bomb Plot) says right in the beginning that several of the suspects attended the same storefront mosque.
