Abu Hook Hand Convicted In Britain

In a rare display of sense, a jury in Britain convicted radical islamic preacher of incitement to murder. "The jury found the one-eyed, hook-handed cleric guilty on 11 of 15 charges against him, including counts of soliciting murder, stirring racial hatred, possessing a terrorist document and possessing threatening or abusive recordings." Right after that courageous act, "Al-Masri, Britain's best-known Islamist orator, then was sentenced to seven years in prison for soliciting murder, the most serious charge. He faced a maximum sentence of life imprisonment. The cleric will serve his sentences on the other charges concurrently," they declined to punish him, according to the Enemy Press AP.

As seen with the publication of the Mohamet cartoons, the reaction was, "But a Muslim leader said the verdict would trouble some in his community. 'This is creating an environment that can only further alienate the Muslim community,' said Massoud Shadjareh, chairman of the Islamic Human Rights Commission." Expect to see riots and buildings torched soon.
