Al Qaeda On The March Again

Posted in Afghanistan, Al Quada, America, Europe, Islamic Revolution, Muslim, Sharia Law, Taliban, Terrorists with tags , , , , on 23/10/2012 by floroy1942

Anyone who thinks Al Qaeda is not heavily involved in the current problems with the Arab world is in my opinion extremely naive. News in from Jordan over the past couple of days only reinforces my opinion that this insurgency group is doing all it can to destabilised governments in the Middle East and involve more and more countries in the unrest. There is evidence enough to support the theory that they, and their splinter groups, are heavily involved in Syria, Libya, Lebanon and many African countries like Somalia and Yemen and have of course been fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq for years.

Al Qaeda Training Camp

US Commanders in Afghanistan reported last week that although estimates suggest there is only a small number of Al Qaeda fighters remaining in the country, they are once again on the move and doing what they can to increase their numbers. With the cessation of all Coalition activities in the country by the end of 2014, the door will be wide open for both Al Qaeda and the Taliban to step in and fill the vacuum through fear and intimidation.

The People Celebrate After The Arab Spring

In the meantime the insurgents have been involved with the fighting currently taking place in Syria which has now spilled over in to Lebanon. But the story does not end there, for other countries like Kuwait, Bahrain, and even Saudi Arabia one of the most stable of Arab countries, are also beginning to see bomb attacks and/or demonstrations. But this latest news of an Al Qaeda cell in Jordan attempting to bomb shopping centres and western diplomatic missions seems to be their latest attempt to cause unrest in the country and overthrow King Abdullah. Most unsettling is the fact that all eleven suspects arrested are Jordanian, so this indicates that their propaganda is working on many of the Jordanian people, especially the young, who have quite likely been persuaded to become terrorists by Islamic clerics preaching in the mosques.

Like Saudi Arabia and many other Gulf states, Jordan has been a staunch ally of the West, and any actions undertaken by the insurgents will be designed to undermine this relationship in the hope of gaining a foothold in the country and turning it in their favour. The Jordan government has for some time been voicing concerns about stability in the country, for it is bordered by three trouble spots, namely Syria, Iraq and Palestine. They are well aware that the militants are consolidating their position in Syria and are deeply afraid the whole thing could eventually spread to Jordan.

The Spread Of The Arab Spring

Since the unrest in the Arab world began in Tunisia it has spread like wildfire through country after country and does not look like ending for some time to come. In my view, if the militants gain control of  even one Middle East state and manage to impose Sharia Law, we can only sit back and wait until the unrest is sparked off in other countries like Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Kuwait etc. It will be roller-coaster ride such as the world has never seen – unless someone steps in to stop it!

Sharia Law Taliban Style

There can be no doubt that the main aim of these insurgent groups is to gain power across the Arab world and force Sharia Law on all Arabs. Why? Because their perverted and corrupt version of Arabic law will give them complete control over everyone, for such is their version of the law that trumped-up charges can be levelled at anyone who disagrees with their being the masters.  Under their system of law you are either compliant – or dead. From evidence gathered during the Taliban years in Afghanistan this fact shines out above all others for  it is nothing more than total control through fear.

The Madrid Bombing

Over the past few years Al Qaeda seems to have strayed from their original aim of attacking the West head-on, and have for some time been involved in spreading their influence in countries across the world that have a large Muslim population. This is amply demonstrated by their moves into Somalia, Yemen, Mali and many other African nations where they have continually tried to unseat governments, cause general unrest and in some cases take over large areas of countries like Mali and Somalia. It is a change of tactic that to some extent was predictable, for with the overall failure of terrorist acts such as 9/11, London and Madrid in turning the Arab world against the West, what better way than to infiltrate fellow Arab countries, cause unrest and the fall of governments and eventually turn them over to their way of thinking, i.e. that the west is the monster and should be eradicated!

All European countries, America and Canada have large populations of Muslim immigrants and how many of them are true to their adopted country? If you want to go to to extremes, it can be said that a good portion of ‘Allah’s Army’ is already here.

Does Anyone Imagine They Will Be On Britain’s Side In A War With An Arab Country?

Let’s just suppose for a moment, and this is just crazy speculation, that the radicals do finally take over a good many Middle East countries and impose Sharia Law with all the trappings. With their hated enemy just across the Mediterranean does anyone imagine they would just sit on their hands and be content? If they gain sufficient control they could shut off most of the world’s oil supply which would cripple the armed forces of any western nation. Considering the millions of Muslims that live in Europe, would they stand idly by if the EU goes to war with Arab nations? Maybe it is taking speculation too far but you have to admit, it is a possibility. I’m just glad I won’t be around to see the ‘impossible’ come true.

How Many More Appeals is Abu Qatada To Be Allowed?

Posted in Benefits, Britain, England, Extradition, Human Rights, Insurgents, Justice, Prison, Terrorists, UK with tags , , , on 18/04/2012 by floroy1942

Britain’s number one security threat Abu Qatada has it would seem once more been allowed to appeal his deportation order. It’s incredible! After negotiations with the Jordanian government the Home Secretary Theresa May has received assurances from that government that Qatada will get a fair trial. All concerns raised by his last appeal to the Court of Human Rights (ICHR) in January have therefore been met to the full, but his lawyers state they wish to appeal now to the higher Grand Chamber. What the hell is going on here?

No Wonder The S.O.B. Is Smiling!

The man has already spent the last ten years since his initial arrest appealing to one court or another, and has managed to delay deportation for all that time. How much longer is he going to make an ass of the legal system? I can understand the frustration of the Home Office on hearing that this animal’s lawyers managed to lodge yet another appeal at the last second, although the timing of it is by all accounts suspect.

I would hope that the next time the green light is given for his deportation to Jordan he is put on a plane within minutes, and to hell with his human rights, for he doesn’t seem to think we ‘infidels’ have any!

Qatada's Mother - Living Off The Fat Of Our Land

This entire farce has gone on for ten long years, and I might add, at tax payers expense! It is unbelievable that one terrorist could cost the country so much money, for in that period the cost must have risen to many tens of millions. The British tax payer has not only paid for his incarceration and many appeals, but also for his wife and family during this whole unsavoury period.

Is it any wonder that it can take years to get a case through the ICHR when criminals like Qatada are allowed not one, not two, but many after a ruling is made. Forget not that Qatada is not the only one making appeals to the ICHR, who knows how many are bogging down the system. It is about time this body got its act together and made it mandatory that no more than one appeal is allowed on any ruling made by them. Should this be done we could well see the backlog of cases disappear in a few short months.

Disappointment

Lawyers today seem to think they can keep appealing time after time until they get the verdict they want. Justice should not work like that! Anyone in a court gets the case judges ruling  and is allowed one appeal. when that fails they can go to the ICHR if appropriate with no further right of appeal open. This business of working your way up to the top of the justice system in a whole series of appeals to the next higher court is ridiculous.

The Unseen Dangers of the Arab Spring

Posted in Al Quada, Arab, Insurgents, Islamic Revolution, Muslim, Somaila, Terrorism, United Nations with tags , , , , , , on 12/02/2012 by floroy1942

On 17 December 2010 Mohamed Bouazizi, a 26 year old Tunisian street vendor set himself alight in protest at the confiscation of his wares, and the harassment and humiliation that he reported was inflicted on him by a municipal official and her aides. There was no way he could foresee the wave of unrest that followed his action across the arab world.

Mohamed Bouazizi - The Catalyst

It led to the downfall of the Tunisian President, El Abadine Ben Ali, followed later by Hosni Mubarak of Egypt, Muhamar Gaddafi of Libya and President Ali Abdulla Saleh of Yemen. It had far reaching effects on the political scene in many more arab countries where governmental changes were hastened after protests. Protests in Jordan led King Abdullah to sack two governments in an effort to stave off major disruptions in the country.

Syrian Tanks Fire on Homs

Now everyone is concentrating on Syria, where despite condemnation by the Arab League and a lot of talk at the UN, President Assad is trying desperately to put down what amounts to a fully fledged rebellion in the country. Accusations fly thick and fast from the government, saying the problems are being caused by ‘outside elements’, while the protesters shout to the world the daily death toll at the hands of their armed forces.

Today a Syrian general was assassinated outside his home by armed gunmen. The government say these men were an “armed terrorist group”, and it is possible. Not surprisingly, no group has claimed responsibility for the attack. Naturally this does not detract from the fact that around 7000 civilians have been killed by government forces over the past months.

Assad

What the outcome will be in Syria is anyone’s guess, but it seems the regime’s days are numbered. The question that should now be asked is: Will Assad and his entourage ever be brought before the International Court for crimes against humanity, seeing as his armed forces are killing unarmed civilians with tanks and artillery? His days must surely be numbered, for he even has neighbouring arab states against him now. Once he has been subdued, will that be the end of the arab spring I wonder?

There has been death on the streets of many arab countries outside those already mentioned, like Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Mauritania and Lebanon. In many cases it has been sectarian in nature. There seems to be no love between Sunni and Shi’ite muslims in the arab world and they seem to be increasingly ‘having a go’ at the opposition.

Saudi Protests

In many nations, like Bahrain, which is ruled by the Sunni al Khalifa family, 70-75% of the people are Shia. In Syria we see an Alewite (an offshoot of Sunni) presiding over a population that is 74% Shia. Often in recent times this has led to friction. In Qatif, the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia, which is home to a Shia majority, they complained of marginalisation at the hands of the Sunni ruling family.

The situation in Saudi Arabia is the most troubling for it is staunchly pro-western and is of course the world’s largest supplier of oil. Trouble is brewing in the Qatif region in eastern Saudi where one protester was shot by police who said they were shot at by gunmen. An identical event took place earlier in the town of Qatif. Not surprisingly it is small actions like this that inflame people into taking part in large scale protests at the deaths, which can lead to a similar action by the police. Once the fire is lit, it can be hard to put out.

It is without doubt that the entire region was stable until one lowly street vendor decided to set himself alight in protest, now what the future holds for the arab world is anyone’s guess. Egypt and Libya are still in turmoil, which to be honest, looks like continuing throughout the rest of this year. There is also unrest in the other countries mentioned, which could take no more than a small spark to ignite. Meanwhile, we stand on the sidelines waiting to see what happens next.

What Is He Up to Now?

An ‘un-named’ US official has let it be known that there could be al Quada fighters from Iraq in Syria busy at work stoking up tensions. It is suggested they were responsible for two bombing, and were likely involved in the attacks that took place in Aleppo. When you look at it from a distance, this is possible. I only say possible, for logic dictates that if al Quada can bring down what was, until recently, a stable government and cause mayhem, they stand to make great gains while the country is in limbo, trying to find its way to a proper government.

The possibility that this is a new tactic of al Quada is not so far fetched, so let’s kick it around for a moment. 

What would happen if this Islamic group managed to get into the government of many of the arab countries? As in other places, it starts with one or two people in high positions who work behind the scenes to pave the way for more members and end up taking over. We have seen exactly this scenario take place within the Tower Hamlets Council of London. Al Quada is now aligned with the rebels in Somalia, and obviously they see the possibility of political gains in the country. Therefore, it is by no means a huge stretch of the imagination to see this happening in Syria and perhaps, at a later date, other arab states.

Who Knows What the Future Holds

This is all conjecture, but what would happen to world peace if such an event were to happen? A very disturbing thought indeed. I dread to think what will happen in the future if such a situation actually occurs. Islamic fundamentalist governments controlling most of the world’s oil? Such an event would be catastrophic, and I am glad I will not be around to say “I told you so”! Governments the world over need to pay more attention to the march of Islam, for if they don’t, we could see catastrophic times ahead, for in the long-term, it is always the people who suffer in these power struggles.

Roy.

14/2/12 Update: With the latest news it seems the ideas set forward in this post may not be so far-fetched after all. Yesterday Ayman al-Zawahri, bin Laden’s deputy and now leader of al Quada came out and urged all Muslims in Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey to join the uprising against what he called Mr. Assad’s “pernicious, cancerous regime.” Senior Iraqi officials have commented that a steady flow of men linked to al Quada, as well as arms have been flowing over the border into Syria for four months. Regarding the two car bombs that went off in Aleppo last week, it has been remarked that these attacks bear the trademark of al Quada. So maybe this terrorist group is trying to make political capital out of the Syrian mess.  

Human Rights Laws – The New Enemy

Posted in Al Quada, Benefits, Britain, England, Human Rights, Islamic Revolution, Justice, UK with tags , , , , on 18/01/2012 by floroy1942

Once again the Human Rights Laws of the EU are working for terrorism. Abu Qatada, Europe’s number 1 terrorist has once again been able to use Human Rights Legislation to escape deportation to Jordan from the UK. He was tried ‘in absentia’ in Jordan for involvement  in two terrorist conspiracies to carry out bomb attacks there in 1999 and 2000.

Abu Qatada - Hate Preacher

He moved to the UK to evade Jordanian justice in 2001 and went on the run to escape being arrested in the UK, but was found in 2002 and detained. In 2005 he was freed from jail because it was deemed to be unlawful, and a first attempt to deport him in 2008 was blocked by the Court of Appeal. In 2009 his deportation was upheld by the Law Lords but was again blocked when he went to the International Court of Human Rights (ICHR). So now, here we are in 2012 and once again he has been able to escape deportation to face a new trial for his crimes in Jordan because he claims evidence against him was obtained from one of his fellow conspirators by torture.

The ICHR did accept that sufficient safeguards were in place between Jordan and the UK to prevent Abu Qatada himself from being tortured, but it could not allow the deportation on the grounds that the evidence against him may have been obtained under duress.

Shopping With Our Tax Money

This man is described by judges as ‘extremely dangerous’, but appears able to thwart every attempt to deport him from this country by consistently manipulating Human Rights Law to suit his purpose. In the ten plus years he has been in Britain he has constantly preached hatred for the West, and who knows how many young Muslim men have been swayed by his hate rhetoric into committing acts of terrorism? This man is truly evil, but it seems the law cannot touch him and in my opinion that is a monumental disgrace.

This is by far not the only case where justice has been outwitted by terrorists and criminals who know how to twist the HR laws to their advantage. The list is endless and it involves not only those who would destroy us and our way of life, but also career criminals, some of whom are guilty of murder. The infamous ‘Right to Family Life’ (Article 8) of the HR Act has been used on many occasions, and with others it is the ‘torture’ clause as in this case.

Smiling? Why Not He Lives Off Benefits!

In the first case all a foreign criminal has to do is get his girlfriend pregnant and he can claim Article 8 as a defence. A known terrorist like Abu Qatada only has to state that he will be tortured in the country to which he will be deported, or as in this case, the suspicion that evidence against him was obtained by torture, and the whole thing falls through.

These people are making a mockery of not only the laws of Britain, but of International Law also, and its time a stop was put to this farce.

ICHR Court

When the Human Rights Charter was first introduced in 1948 it was a universal reaction to the abominable atrocities carried out against the Jews during the Second World War by the Nazis. Human rights are commonly understood as inalienable fundamental rights to which a person is inherently entitled simply because she or he is a human being. Human rights are thus conceived as universal (applicable everywhere) and egalitarian (the same for everyone). These rights may exist as natural rights or as legal rights, in both national and international law” Thus is it written! Over the years bits have been added or changed and have led to many clauses now being used by terrorists and criminals to escape justice.

In my opinion, the whole thing needs a major overhaul to close the loopholes that currently exist in the system. It cannot be acceptable to anyone that people such as Abu Qatada can escape all forms of justice in the present day. There still remain at least six terror suspects in the UK awaiting deportation to various countries including Algeria and Egypt.

Human Shields In Misrata!

Posted in Al Quada, Arab, Britain, England, Europe, Insurgents, Muslim, Terrorism, UK, USA with tags , , , , , , , on 07/04/2011 by floroy1942

I guess it should come as no surprise that Libyan forces loyal to Gaddafi are now using human shields. After all, it has become a favourite tactic employed by Hamas, Hezbollah, The Taliban and many other arab insurgent groups. This does not make it any the less despicable.

http://www.youtube.com/embed/8X0f496F7U4

To Be Prosecuted For War Crimes?

To me it is the action of a coward and a war criminal, who should be caught and prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Hopefully, this means that when the Libyan ‘show’ is over someone will be answering for these crimes. I certainly hope so.

According to NATO reports, tanks and heavy artillery are being hidden in civilian areas of the city with the express purpose of making them immune to NATO aircraft attack. Light attack vehicles, similar to those used by the rebels, are now using the roads and mingling with civilian traffic to prevent attack from ever-watchful NATO warplanes.

NATO Airstrike Against Gaddafi Forces

There can be little doubt this will blunt the effectiveness of air strikes, for no sensible pilot will drop a bomb, or fire a missile knowing innocent civilians will be killed, for that makes him not much better than those who perpetrate the crime, and it will not help NATO in  the propaganda war. 

http://www.youtube.com/embed/tXU2oFSOSM0

Meanwhile, the rebels are complaining they need more assistance from NATO if they are to make any further significant gains. I for one hope they realise the burden such a tactic has put on coalition pilots.

NATO’s Deputy Commander of Operations, Rear Admiral Russel Harding said in reply: “NATO forces have been particularly careful to avoid injury to civilians who are in close proximity to the fighting, often precisely because of the tactics of government forces,” He added: “Libyan government forces have increasingly shifted to non-conventional tactics, blending in with road traffic and using civilian life as a shield for their advance.”

The city of Misrata, under siege now for more than a month, is home to some half-a-million inhabitants, and large scale civilian deaths at the hands of NATO would no doubt be a boon to the ‘lefty’ propaganda machine as well as the Arab and African nations opposed to the intervention.

Jordanian F16's

It is heartwarming to know that now at least Jordan has joined the coalition and sent aircraft to aid in the effort, if a little late. I must say though, both Syria and Saudi Arabia are noticeably absent, and silent. But there again, these nations are always reticent when it comes to assisting other arab countries, or even condemning acts of terrorism committed against the West. Saudi for example has the best armed forces among all the arab nations, they should have, for all their hardware has been obtained from the USA. I have often wondered why these Middle East countries are always content with the ‘Three Wise Monkeys’ approach to happenings around the world involving their arab brethren, especially terrorism.

http://www.youtube.com/embed/WxPOoykVqqc

A new twist to the tale has come from the French who say they are making arrangements for the eastern rebels to get supplies into Misrata by sea. Apart from basic requirements like food and water, it will also give them the opportunity to get arms and men into the city if they so wish. What this will do to the balance of power in the area is anybody’s guess.

To the observer, it is clear the Libyan crisis is a long way from being over, and it’s still not possible to predict what the outcome will be. Personally, I doubt that Gaddafi will be able to retain his position once this debacle is over, for apart from half the population of Libya hating him, he has become a pariah among world leaders, who I am sure will want no further dealings with him.

Libya, The Arab League and Double Standards!

Posted in Arab, Britain, England, Europe, Muslim, UK, UN, United Nations, USA with tags , , , , , , , , on 20/03/2011 by floroy1942

Face Saving?

I guess I should not be surprised that the Arab League is now trying to worm out of its complicity in the current Libyan crisis. I have just read with disbelief a statement by the League Secretary General, Amr Moussa that he is calling for an emergency meeting of the group saying that the actions of the coalition are not what was intended when they agreed to the action. I quote:“What is happening in Libya differs from the aim of imposing a no-fly zone, and what we want is the protection of civilians and not the bombardment of more civilians.” It seems to me they are now trying to back out of the agreement they made with the UN Security Council!

It was after all they who asked for such action to be taken, but it is worthy to note that the United Arab Emirates is the only country in the block to be actively taking part. Each of the major arab nations, like Saudi Arabia, Syria and Jordan have strong air forces that could easily have done the job on their own, but not one of them has made a move to assist.

The UAE-At Least An Honest Arab Nation

Now they are trying to backtrack on their diplomatic involvement and before you know it, they will be accusing the coalition of aggression, or at least interference in arab affairs. I have to say I find their attitude both spineless and disgusting.

It would seem they expected the no-fly zone to be enforced without any military action whatsoever, and if that is the case I would ask them how it could be done.

RAF Tornados

Weeks ago US Secretary of Defence, Robert Gates, made it quite clear that the only way to safely enforce a no-fly zone was for the Libyan anti-air defences to be knocked out prior to overflights. Personally, I can think of no other way.

I can understand they do not want foreign troops on Libyan soil and that should not be necessary, but it is impossible to achieve a no-fly zone without some form of military action. Considering that the arab nations have left it up to the west to do their dirty work for them, I would have at least expected a grudging ‘Thank You’ considering it is our pilots that are being put in harms way on their behalf. Instead, all we get is the proverbial ‘knife in the back’, so typically arab.

AWACS - Ensuring Compliance

We cannot for sure know this, but it is possible they are now starting to get unrest among the arab nations for the fact they requested western assistance in this problem, and are now trying to excuse their complicity by proclaiming: “This is not what we meant…..But we didn’t mean…” etc etc. Well gentlemen, if you call for a spade, you get a spade and that’s that!

Further, how dare he suggest the coalition is bombing civilians! I can only presume he has been listening to the Gaddafi propaganda machine. The west has ‘stepped up to the plate’ and offered to help defend civilians against the onslaught of Gaddafi’s forces, and I must say that is more than the majority of arab nations have done. Instead of backtracking from their decision they should be actively assisting in the efforts.

Finally I have to say direct to Mr. Amr Moussa: If you don’t like the way the west is carrying out YOUR request – DO IT YOURSELF!!!!!

I await further developments with bated breath!

Terrorism and Human Rights

Posted in Al Quada, Arab, Britain, England, Europe, Extradition, Free Speech, Government, Human Rights, Immigrants, Immigration, Insanity, Insurgents, Islamic Revolution, Muslim, Prison, Religion, Sharia Law, Terrorism, Terrorists, UK, USA with tags , , , , , , on 18/02/2009 by floroy1942

Whoopeee! I read with interest today that Abu Qatada, Europe’s most influential extremist, can finally be deported to Jordan. The UK House of Lords, the highest Appeal Court in the land, has agreed that he is a dangerous extremist and should no longer be given leave to reside in Britain. And about time too. Enough of this pussyfooting around, and to hell with these ‘Goody-Goody’ pressure groups.

What a complete and utter farce the Law is these days! This animal is a convicted terrorist not only in the UK and Jordan, but is wanted on terrorist charges in six other countries, so that should not leave any doubt as to his guilt. The Law however is obliged to listen to his sob story about him not getting a fair trial in Jordan, because testimony against him there is obtained by torture!

The Home Office has pointed out that Britain has a diplomatic agreement with Jordan, among others, that extradited felons will not be tortured.

I would have thought Qatada would welcome giving his all for the cause, then he would get his place in Paradise and his 100 Virgins. Right?

This man is a real piece of work. He was kicked out of Kuwait for opposing the liberation, went to Jordan, and from there entered the UK in 1993 on a forged passport. He claimed asylum on the grounds of religious persecution (Brazen!), which was granted in 1994 because the British are such a soft touch.

He immediately set about preaching his brand of hatred in Mosques up and down the country, finally being arrested on terrorism charges in 2005 shortly after the 7/7 bombings.

In 2008, an Appeal Judge overturned a 2007 court ruling that he may be deported to Jordan, and even released him on bail. Thankfully better heads ruled the day, and he was re-arrested due to Intelligence received that he was going to skip the country. I am almost lost for words (well, not quite)!

This new episode is a heaven sent opportunity for people like Amnesty International,those champions of terrorists and criminals everywhere, to step into the picture claiming his human rights are being violated by his proposed deportation!

To me it seems that no-one who works for that organization has ever lost a relative or loved one to terrorism or crime, if any of them had, maybe they would join the rest of us in the real world. To the people who lost relatives, loved ones, or friends in 9/11, Madrid and London 7/7, this group is an insult.

Before you castigate me, let me add that Amnesty does do some good work, but in my opinion, it should not use its considerable resources to help convicted terrorists and criminals.

My take on people like that is that they give up all their rights when they incite the weak-minded to kill innocents in a random fashion just to further their own dark agenda. Amnesty on the other hand, thinks these parasites still have the same human rights as you or I, despite being involved in such terrible acts as 9/11.

Amnesty was said to be “gravely concerned” at the implications of this ruling.

Spokeswoman Nicola Duckworth said; “No-one should be deported to face a risk of torture, whatever they might be alleged or suspected to have done…..States simply cannot pick and choose which people have human rights…..if these individuals in question are reasonably suspected of having committed a criminal offence relating to terrorism, it is always open to the UK authorities to charge them and give them a fair trial.” What planet does she live on? Hello, Earth calling!

There is no doubt whatsoever, that so long as this animal is kept in a British prison he will continue to spout his vitriolic hatred as he has done in the past. Jailing these people does nothing to stop their influence, it enhances it!

It seems to me these days, that all the emphasis is now on protecting the rights of criminals and terrorists rather than protecting the people from them. This I find very sad.

I am a firm believer in the right of everyone to a fair and open trial, but once convicted, people like Qatada should be taken from the court to a plane and deported immediately.

Occasionally, there may be doubt about the final destination of some of these people, if so, the full Appeal Process may be allowed. This time consuming process should not however be applied in the case of dangerous extremists who continue to preach hatred of our society even in prison.

Even though the battle is won against this man, the war is not. He now has the right to appeal to The European Court of Human Rights which can take another two or three years. Yada! Yada! Yada! Hopefully, the Home Office will get him out before his lawyers can submit their appeal.

Another course of action is open to the British Government; hand him over to Algeria, The United States, France, Germany, Spain, Belgium or Italy. They all want a crack at him too.

In conclusion, this man is a symbol of all that is wrong with the Muslim faith, and there are many like him, breathing violence and hatred of everything non-Muslim. In my opinion, it is only the moderates who can rid their religion of this cancer. Most Muslims are devout people who live in peace and harmony and do not deserve to have their religion tainted by such as he.

May he soon see his 100 virgins!

Roy.

Quick Update:

It seems our man’s lawyers were quick off the mark. Today an appeal has been sent to the European Court of Human Rights which will take, as I predicted, two years. So once again Qatada gets off the hook. Now all the other ‘Do-Gooders’ namely, Human Rights Watch and Justice are jumping on the bandwagon and throwing in their ten cents worth.

The man is a convicted terrorist, wanted in another seven countries for inciting, and financing death and destruction on a scale unprecedented in human history for crying out loud. Have these people no shame???
