Cleric Abu Hamza Al-Masri Is Attacked in U.K. Jail, Sun Reports
March 7 (Bloomberg) -- Abu Hamza al-Masri, a Muslim cleric charged with inciting violence, was attacked in London's Belmarsh jail where he is being held, the Sun newspaper reported on its Web site, citing an unidentified prison official.

The newspaper said the cleric, who is also wanted by U.S. authorities, was ``viciously'' attacked, without providing any more information.

Al-Masri in October was charged by a U.K. court with 16 offenses, including encouraging the murder of non-Muslims and inciting racial hatred, which halted proceedings by the U.S. government to extradite him.

Al-Masri, 47, faces 10 counts of encouraging the murder of non-Muslims at public meetings and four of using ``threatening, abusive or insulting words or behavior with the aim of stirring up racial hatred.''

This is an exclusive, breaking story from the UK's The Sun. Undoubtedly, details will emerge as they become available. The Sun has always been staunchly anti-terror and I have no doubt that they will add more to the story as soon as possible.

British radical cleric Abu Hamza attacked in prison: press

Radical Islamic cleric Abu Hamza al-Masri, charged in Britain with 16 offences including incitement to murder Jews, has been attacked by a fellow detainee in the high security Belmarsh prison.

"It was a violent physical incident involving another inmate but I do not know whether a weapon was used. There is no information on whether he received treatment," said Abu Mussa, a spokesman for the former head of London's Finsbury Park mosque, was quoted as saying in The Sun daily.

"There are some tasty characters in there. They don't care about getting caught and one of them wanted to show Hamza exactly what they think of him," he added.

Belmarsh prison in the capital holds some of the most dangerous prisoners in Britain.

According to the spokesman, the former imam "had previously received threats from other prisoners on the lines of 'we are going to kill you'".

Mussa said a complaint would be handed over to the prison authorities.

Hamza, 47, a distinctive figure with one eye and a hooked hand, was charged in October with 10 counts of soliciting murder.

The little-used charge, covered by an 1861 criminal law, relates to inciting others to murder unspecified people and carries a maximum sentence of life imprisonment.

In Hamza's case it is connected to alleged incitement by the cleric at public gatherings to kill non-Muslims, specifically Jews, according to four of the charges.

He was also charged with four counts of using threatening, abusive or insulting behaviour with intent to stir up racial hatred; one count of possessing threatening, abusive or insulting sound recordings; and one count of possessing a terrorist document.

Hamza is sought for extradition by the United States on separate charges, with this process suspended until the British court case is completed.

What did Abu Magoo or whatever his name is do to provoke this?

Its a prison and he's a terrorist, its not to hard to figure out what happened.

They may be criminals, but even criminals aren't going to be fond of guys who want to randomly kill innocent people, somone probably had a beef with him over that, and Hamza doesn't exactley seem like a nice guy.

In prison, these things happen, look at Dahmer, or Gotti when he got beaten up, even some of the guys involved in the first WTC attack got into fights in prison.

Interesting story, when McVeigh was in prison, he preferred the arab terrorists, while the Unabomber preferred to be by himself and avoid everyone.

To continue with and expand upon your double entendre, the hardworking British taxpayers have been forced to pay for a male nurse for Hamza, whose duties include wiping, as apparently Hamza is not able to do this as a result of his hooks (some news stories are saying that he has "a hooked hand" but in reality he has two, which, by the way, were replaced at great expense by the hardworking British taxpayer as well).

Hopefully the inmate population will take note of the great press that this event is receiving and will make a point of not making the mistake of allowing Hamza to live through the experience next time.

Becoming known as "the bloke who killed Hamza" would undoubtedly be a HUGE asset to one's reputation behind bars.....without a death penalty to concern himself with, what comeuppance would a lifer need to worry about?

Thanks for the clarification  :-)  I'm glad that you liked it....it just seemed terribly appropriate that the aggressor should get a rousing cheer in this case.  Yes, I shamelessly copied and pasted the animated gif, I didn't make it myself.  I am honored to have provided a smile  :-)

Welcome to Britain. Prison is bad here. It could very well have been that Hamza ran into some of our more old fashioned criminals like East End gangsters, who don't take too kindly to terrorists.

Memo to all guards at Abu Ghraib:

It has come to our attention that the International Community approves REPEAT, approves of inmates "thumping" each other, as long as no panties REPEAT, NO panties are involved.

In support of this position, please reference attachment 'A':

Abu Hamza ... the fanatical Muslim cleric, ... thumped inside ... Belmarsh prison (by) fellow jail inmate ... WELL DONE!

Right after 9/11, some New York inmates donated money and worked to help with the cleanup. I'll never forget the quote, "We may be criminals, but we're Americans." Perhaps this is the British version.

maybe the other inmates saw that HBO special "The Dirty War"

for those who haven't seen it, http://www.pbs.org/previews/dirty_war/

"In an unprecedented arrangement, three provocative films from Home Box Office will be distributed through PBS for broadcast television following their HBO premiere, announced jointly today by Chris Albrecht, chairman and CEO, Home Box Office, and Pat Mitchell, president and CEO, PBS. In addition, HBO and PBS member station WETA Washington, D.C., will co-produce, along with the Council on Foreign Relations, related panel discussions to follow each film on PBS, featuring leading experts and moderated by noted journalist Jeff Greenfield, to follow each film on PBS.

snip

The first film, DIRTY WAR, tells the fictional story of a radiological "dirty bomb" attack on central London and debuts Monday, January 24 on HBO. DIRTY WAR is scheduled for Wednesday, February, 23 on PBS. Directed by Dan Percival who wrote the screenplay with Lizzie Mickery, this HBO Films/BBC Films production is based on extensive research by the BBC factual department and asks the questions: Are our emergency services fully prepared for a nuclear attack? How much does the public have a right to know?

There would be such a cry of rage throughout the land if that occured that the ground beneath Mecca would shake. Warning to Al Qaeda: we're not Spaniards. You can only push us so far before the entire nation unites and rises up like a tornado. We had that kind of unanimity during World War II, it could happen again.
