Radical Cleric Hamza Can Be Extradited To US
Sky News ^ | 24th September 2012 | Sky News

Posted on 09/24/2012 2:19:41 PM PDT by the scotsman

'Radical Muslim cleric Abu Hamza can be extradited to the US after Europe's human rights judges rejected his request for an appeal, officials have said.

Hamza wanted to fight a European Court of Human Rights ruling that extradition would not breach his human rights.

But his request was rejected by a panel of judges, a spokesman for the court said.

The unanimous judgment said there would be no human rights breach either as a result of likely detention in ADX Florence "supermax" prison in Colorado, or the length of possible sentences on conviction.

The decision means Hamza, who was jailed for seven years for soliciting to murder and inciting racial hatred, can now be extradited with four others, including terror suspect Babar Ahmad.

Computer expert Ahmad has been held in a UK prison without trial for eight years after being accused of raising funds for terrorism.

The request for an appeal delayed a total of five cases related to the same judgment. The other cases involve Seyla Talha Ahsan, Adel Abdul Bary and Khaled al Fawwaz.

The five are likely to be put on a plane to the US within two or three weeks, it is understood.

A Home Office spokesman said: "The Home Secretary welcomes today's decision not to refer the cases of Abu Hamza and four others to the Grand Chamber.

"This follows the judgment of the European Court of Human Rights on April 10 to allow the extradition of these five terrorism suspects to the US.

"We will work to ensure that the individuals are handed over to the US authorities as quickly as possible."'

Why send him here? Obama will just let him go with a “stern talking to”.

I get that Abu Hamza is being extradited but who is Ahmad?

Did the piece get proofread for consistency (evidently not).

If I remember correctly, Hamza has health issues (besides his blind eye & hook), including diabetes. He’ll cost us $$$ to keep him locked up.

US jails are much too nice. They get color tv, education, a gym, and conjugal visits. Israeli jails are a little more spartan, but hardly less comfortable.

It would be nice to hang them, but these human-rightsy types would nix extradition then. I’d say extradite them, put them on a slow boat with a leaky bottom, and only enough life boats for the captain and crew. Then hire a green pilot to bring them into port, a dislexic green pilot with a drinking problem.

Imagine that! An Islamist demanding human rights.. go figure

Shame be upon the Islamist puke.

From Internet sources:". . . close to ninety percent [of suicide bombers] were suffering from severe illness such as blindness, cancer, missing limbs or leprosy . . . being physically handicapped or mentally retarded often leads to exclusion . . . and becoming a martyr might be the only chance of achieving social recognition and honour — if not just a way to end the pain of being socially isolated (which is especially traumatizing in collectivist cultures like Islam). . .People with low intelligence (because of inbreeding) might also be easier to brainwash with fundamentalist Islam."

Shame be upon the Islamists and the Obama Administration for sanctioning the Islamists abuse of these poor souls.. where are the human rights for these victims of hundreds of years of Islamism's practice of inbreeding and Islamism's horrible abuse of these poor souls including killing them?

Babar got chummy with some Algerians, and had Cat Stevens perform at his golden anniversary. Now he’s committed to global jihad, and General Cornelius is fit to be tied. In fact he is tied up at the moment, and the house in which he’s tied is on fire. His wife Celeste wished to make a public protest against this subversion the the pachedermal monarchy, which has always been Roman Catholic, but her face is too bruised to appear on TV.

Extradition to the U.S. is the first step towards freedom under this administration.

I can think of another, ahem, "Chamber" more suited to the likes of these @holes.

Check out Norwegian prisons, they look like college dorms!

The one thing Hamza won’t get in an American jail is his goat or sheep, so conjugal visits are out.

Baaaaa!

If the IDF were still in Ghaza, they could extradite him there and give him Gilad Shalit’s old cell.

Just remind NOW that the Obama Administration let child rapist Roman Polanski go free. The Democrat War on Women continues.

Extradition on when politically convenient.

We have terrorists in our hands that have not been prosecuted (the 9-11 plotter and the Ft. Hood shooter).
