Cleric who urged jihad to be freed from prison

An Islamic cleric who influenced at least one of the 7 July bombers and whose videos may have been seen by several of the terror suspects arrested earlier this month, is to be freed from prison in weeks. Sheikh Abdullah el-Faisal encouraged Muslims to attend training camps so they could wage jihad on the West. He was jailed in February 2003 for nine years, reduced to seven on appeal, after being convicted of soliciting murder and inciting racial hatred. Hundreds of Muslims attended his lectures in mosques across Britain, including Birmingham, London and Dewsbury in West Yorkshire.
His trial heard recordings of el-Faisal, Jamaican by birth but living in Stratford, east London, praising Osama bin Laden. 'You have to learn how to shoot and fly planes and drive tanks,' el-Faisal told those who attended his lectures. 'Jews,' el-Faisal said, 'should be killed... as by Hitler.'
He encouraged the use of chemical weapons to 'exterminate non-believers', and exhorted Muslim women to buy toy guns for their children to train them for jihad. He also suggested that nuclear power stations could be fuelled with bodies of Hindus, slaughtered for their 'oppression' of Muslims in Kashmir.
Videos of his lectures have been found circulating in Muslim circles in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, where police are concentrating inquiries into this month's alleged bomb plot involving airliners.

How about the Brits give him a suicide belt but without the 'trigger'...
Let him walk around just wondering when his time is going to be UP!
It's insane to free such a terrorist leader.
This may be an area where western governments and organized crime can cooperate. If the UK or US governments can't "dispose" of a terrorist madman like this goofball, then have the Mafia take care of him.
Why stop there...
Give him a nice flat in the center of London and subsidize all his utilities, meals and petrol.
Heck, provided him with a personal videographer, free studio time and distribution channels requiring all stores that sell DVDs in the country to carry his message.
That would be nice.
also get him a job and a new car hell send him on a free trip to America to blow us up yeah sure we have too understand his mind and all that crap
That's the only 'fair' thing to do. Who are we to force our views on everyone else?
