Radical Islamist Abu Hamza al-Masri to be extradited to U.S.

From Jonathan Wald and Andrew Carey

The High Court in London ruled Friday that extremist Islamist cleric Abu Hamza al-Masri and four other men will be extradited to the United States to face terrorism charges, bringing to an end a years-long legal battle.

Judge John Thomas said there could be no appeal of the court's decision.

The extradition of al-Masri and four other terror suspects to the United States "may proceed immediately," he said.

The other four men are Khaled al-Fawwaz, Adel Abdul Bary, Babar Ahmad and Talha Ahsan.

    I do consider all the concepts you have introduced for your post. They're very convincing and will definitely work. Nonetheless, the posts are very brief for beginners. Could you please lengthen them a bit from subsequent time? Thank you for the post.

    In India people are dying of hunger. Why are these low caste Hindus prohibited from eating beef? In India cow meat is cheaper than other available meats. Instead of these Brahmins taking care of the low caste peoples of India they are doing their best to save their “holy” cows. According to Valmith’s Ramayana, God Rama “ATE” meat. Why then have these Brahmins given up beef-eating? Come on guys, feed the low caste in India with some steaks !!!

      The Aghori or Aghouri is a Hindu cult that is considered to have split off from the Kapalika order in the fourteenth century AD. They have cannibalistic rituals. The streets of northern Indian cities are littered with followers of this cult carrying a kapala, which is a cup made from a skull! These bizarre people will eat anything from rotten food to animal faeces. In order to achieve the highest citadel of enlightenment, the Aghori will perform horrendously crude rituals. The finality of their rituals is attained from eating the decaying flesh of a human.

      In many Hindu temples there are sculptures depicting men having s@x not only with women but also cows. What is the meaning of this? Is not the cow sacred? If it is, then it should be worshipped not s@xually assaulted!

        This goddess was married to five brothers. Which one would become the legitimate father of his child should she have one? Dr Charles (renowned author and an authority on India) says that instances of incest are common in Hindu scriptures.

      INDIA: On a Goat and a Stick:

      The problem with India is that is built on a system of cultural and societal values based on Hinduism which is a cult. Nations built on a cult seldom survive in the long run. You can only take it so far based on symbolisms of a goat and a stick with a skinny little man aka gandhi banging boys at night and spinning wheels during daytime.

    The one most successful aspect of recent American foreign policy has been the conquest of India without firing a bullet. That is the beauty of capitalism used as a Trojan Horse! Economic victory! Give them a taste of steak and they will never settle for hamburgers again. USA now owns India Inc. not only economically but also militarily as economic subjugation ultimately leads to military domination.

      Why would a nation such as India that tries to deceive the world by saying it has peaceful intentions have the largest armed forces in the world and a hyper huge nuclear program. All this while the majority of its people are living in poverty.

        Tell me Phunnie boy, what have the Hindus or India to do with the extradition of Abu Hamza al-Masri? After all, this topic is about Abu Hamza and his collegues and not India. Besides, you can start blogging under your own name instead of usurping mine to make me look like another ignorant Tea Partier of which I definately am not!!!

      Did you say weak or fear? hahaha. It is the right thing to do follow due process of law of which Hamza enjoyed to the fullest but he never gave his victims the same chance. I love England, can Hamza drag Egyptian interior ministry up and down like he did here in England? the reply will be No. But England is a Godly nation that some think they can abuse as they want. My beautiful Action Lady Theresa May did a wonderful job. She deserves big recognition in this matter. I wish I can take her and her family out for a nice Italian meal.

    If you have tears, prepare to shed them now.
    If you have any b@lls, prepare to sacrifice them now.
    But the time has come for Indians to get out of the trenches from hiding,
    And face the Talibans head on and do the biding.
    Protecting your country is Indian responsibility,
    Subcontracting to Americans, Israelis and South Koreans is not an enduring possibility

        I'm not sure if you know who this guy actually is? There is no left wing right wing argument here. His crimes go way back... before any of the wars to which you refer. I'm British and live in London, so know all about this chap. He is a criminal and he is a walking Jihad and you need to trust me on this, he deserves little sympathy.

        I hope he get what he deserves
