The “British” terror suspect Abu Hamza al-Masri, after losing long years of legal appeals, has finally been extradited to the United States to stand trial, along with four of his fellow culture-enrichers. Mr. al-Masri is more popularly known as “Hooky” due to the loss of both hands in an… ahem… workplace accident during a visit to Afghanistan some years ago.
In other news, a property developer in Dublin, Ireland has applied for planning permission to build an $84 million mosque to serve the city’s 40,000 Muslims. That comes out to $2,100 per culture-enricher.
Meanwhile, the largest mosque in the Southern Hemisphere has been built north of Johannesburg, South Africa, at an estimated cost of R1.3 billion (about $150 million).

Welcome to the land of the free – or not in their case – for Abu Hamza and his mates. A shame we had to insist that you Americans are not allowed to execute him, I expect that was down to the European Court of Human Rights.
Just make sure they never see the light of day again.
Now then, can anybody over there let me know when you are taking their wives and multiple offspring whom we have been keeping on benefits here in Britain for a decade or more? I think it is an infringement of their human rights if they are not allowed daily access to their husbands and fathers so please come and take them away as soon as possible. I cannot see Britain ever sending them back where they came from and we will be paying to educate them so they can join Al Qaeda when they are old enough. Please lobby your local congressman or woman and insist that these people not be allowed to suffer any more by being separated from their beloved papas. Thank you.
