The Poster Boy for Plan C


Here is the creature that inspired this weblog.


Name: Abu Hamza
Occupation: Radical Cleric
Resident: Now in prison in London, previously free and living in London
supports: UBL, jihad, murder and mayhem vs. the Rest-of-Us.

This individual openly and defiantly preached his hate at the Finsbury Mosque in London for years. But since the UK could not prove that he had broken any specific law, he continued spewing his hateful message for years. Imagine, for several years after 9-11 Abu Hamza, living free in London, spoke out openly in support of the 911 Jihadi attacks and all the government lawyers in the UK could not find a way to arrest or deport him until recently. We will never prevail in the war vs Islamofascism if we allow these kinds of situations to be repeated.

I dont for a moment believe that spiel put up by the government. The UK has laws going back a 1000 years covering almost any contigency, specially in matters relating to sedition and disturbance of the peace. They could have got him on anything.

What put New Labour in a predicament, is that after spending so much capitol in bringing over huge numbers of Muslims to the UK and keeping them on Welfare, it was about to lose the Muslim vote over Iraq. Any action on Abu Hamza would have made matters worse.

Prosecution only began when the matter of extraditing Hamza to the US could no longer be stalled.
