May 28, 2004 -- The land-mine explosion that cost radical Muslim imam Abu Hamza al-Masri the use of one eye and his two hands left his mind as twisted as his body. It turned the Egyptian-born al-Masri into a man who foments hate — a cleric who is regularly derided in British tabloid headlines as "The Hook."

Al-Masri was named Mustaf Kamel Mustafa by his middle-class parents when he was born in Alexandria, Egypt, 47 years ago.

In his mid-20s, he headed for England to become a civil engineer.

This never would have happened with a good old fashioned German landmine. Now that's craftmanship (*snicker*).
