Yep, this will make Britons feel a whole lot safer:
Radical cleric Abu Qatada, described as “Osama bin Laden’s right hand man in Europe,” is to be released in the next 24 hours.
Qatada, who is accused of giving advice and support to terrorists including the leader of the September 11 hijackers, has been described in official documents as a “truly dangerous individual” who was “heavily involved, indeed at the centre of terrorist activities associated with al-Qa’eda.”
He has been convicted twice in Jordan in his absence for conspiracy to carry out bomb attacks on two hotels in Amman in 1998, and providing finance and advice for a series of bomb attacks in Jordan planned to coincide with the Millennium.
It was those convictions which allowed him to argue in the Appeal Court he would not get a fair treatment in his home country.
What cracks me up, is that Jordan is just one of the producers and financiers of terrorism in the Middle East.
He will be electronically tagged and put under a 22-hour curfew at his family home in Acton, West London.
He will not be allowed a mobile phone or access to the internet and the bail conditions include a long list of Islamic radicals with whom he is banned from communicating, including Osama bin Laden.
Why don’t they just send him to bed without his falafel? He’ll just get others to communicate and work around the ‘restrictions’ for him.
Do you promise, Abu Qatada, to be a good little reformed jihadist and make nice with the infidels?
Sure you do.
