From the UK’s Orange News,
A UK High Court judge has ruled radical Muslim cleric Abu Hamza can now be extradited to the United States to face terror charges.
Applications to stop extradition orders against four other terror suspects – Babar Ahmad, Syed Talha Ahsan, Khaled al Fawwaz and Adel Abdul Bary – have all also been dismissed.
Judge Sir John Thomas ruled that all five can now be extradited immediately.
Hamza has been charged with 11 counts of criminal conduct related to the taking of 16 hostages in Yemen in 1998, advocating violent jihad in Afghanistan in 2001, and conspiring to establish a jihad training camp in Bly, Oregon, between June 2000 and December 2001.
Ahmad, a computer expert from south London, and Ahsan are accused of offences including using a website to provide support to terrorists and conspiracy to kill, kidnap, maim or injure persons or damage property in a foreign country.
Lawyers for Hamza argued at a three-day hearing this week that his health was “deteriorating”. BFD – I certainly hope so!
Let’s make him the dog-mascot on Talk Like a Pirate Day, and then hang him from the nearest yardarm.
