Zidane the terrorist victim ?

The Guardian has its usual victimology myth making on show here.

Apparently someone at the Guardian at some point wrote that Zidane headbutted Materazzi because he called him called him "a terrorist". And the evidence - well Matt Foot's internal Guardian link doesn't mention the "terrorist" allegation at all !

Very odd - looks like they've pulled the original story ? One to keep an eye on !

UPDATE - they put the allegation back in the website article - I don't believe it ! See also my comments in the CiF discussion. See also the excellent latest comment by "milla".
