British Jury Convicts Muslim Cleric (Abu Hamza)
AP ^ | February 7th, 2006 | AP

Posted on 02/07/2006 5:21:47 AM PST by Eurotwit

LONDON - A British jury convicted radical Muslim cleric Abu Hamza al-Masri on Tuesday of fomenting racial hatred and inciting his followers to kill non-Muslims.

Al-Masri, 47, the former imam at London's Finsbury Park mosque, also was convicted of possessing a terrorist document and threatening or abusive recordings. Al-Masri, Britain's best-known Islamist orator, could receive a maximum sentence of life in prison.

The jury of seven men and five women found al-Masri guilty on seven of nine charges of soliciting murder. He also was convicted on two of four charges of stirring racial hatred.

Though asked to stand for the reading of the verdict, the firebrand preacher immediately sat down once the first guilty verdict was pronounced by the jury's foreman.

The first paragraph leads the reader to think that "fomenting hatred" can land you in Brit prison for life

It was the counts of soliciting murder

Looks like he'll have to wait for his virgins... may he live a long and claustrophic life, eventually ending in a painful fatal disease.

This is great. Now let's see what kind of sentence this slug gets. My fear is that the judge will wuss out.

Too bad they don't have a death penalty. This guy will cause some serious trouble in prison. He should be kept in solitary confinement. What are they going to do about his hook? That could be a dangerous weapon.

Al-Masri, Britain's best-known Islamist orator, could receive a maximum sentence of life in prison.

By not having the death penalty for this, the UK has just doomed us all to "Free Al-masri" chants for the rest of our lives.

This makes it even more confusing as to why the protestors holding the signs calling for beheadings and terrorism weren't arrested earlier this week.

One was arrested today. He was on parole for drug dealing.

He was also living on welfare but had a very large bank balance so the question is, was he financing some of these people as well ?

No such worries.

He was just sentenced to 7 years.

Have already served 18 months. According to the British justice system, he can expect to serve between a half or two thirds of the sentence.,

He might very well walk out on the streets in 2 years.

Exactly.

But, if he ends up in a jail in Yemen, he might be out on the streets in a few months. They are good at digging tunnels there :-)

But, seriously, I hope he is sent to the US.

This light sentence will hopefully make it more likely that he is turned over to the USA.

It would be great to send his entire family out of Britain. This Abu Hamza parasite has a wife and 8 children sucking off the British welfare system. They live in nice house the welfare system pays rent for and I'm sure they're getting other payments

Actually, it would be quite effective to sprinkle some hog blood on him before executing him. He'd be pissing his pants in abject terror, as the Mahometan lice think that such contamination keeps them out of Paradise. Video it and send it to Al Jazeera as a lesson to all the rest of the Ishmaelite scum.

Muslims would riot if you feed him to the hogs. They believe the body rises at judgement day and needs to be intact at that time. That's why they don't allow cremation.

Plus hog poop stinks bad enough and why do you want to make a hog ill?

Hang him in front of the mosque and then burn it to the ground. Scrape up the entire mess and bury it in a cess pool.
