New venue for a joker?

After few years of hesitation, British police decided to put their hands on one Omar Brooks a.k.a Abu Izzadeen, one of the chief rabble-rousers in London Islamic circles.

Scotland Yard said the arrests related to allegations of inciting others to commit acts of terrorism abroad and fund-raising for terrorists.
Couldn't have happened to a more deserving person. To remind you, an excerpt of an oldish post about this revolting character:
The audience laughs as Omar Brooks, a British Muslim convert who also uses the name Abu Izzadeen, makes fun of non-Muslims as "animals" and "cowards".

At one point he announces dramatically that the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center "changed many people's lives". After a pause, he brings the house down by adding: "Especially those inside."
Of course, his ability to joke should not be curtailed, but he could do with a change of audience for a few years.

And of course, Abu Izzadeen's fans abroad like the odious Chechen terrorism mouthpiece Kavkaz Center, are already clamoring for attention to the faith of this "martyr".
They are all active Muslims in the community. They are all passionate about what they believe. They all stand up against injustice by the government and their foreign policy. At the end of the day they have done nothing illegal and this is just another witch hunt and crusade against the Muslim community.
When defended by a gang like this one, the need for legal defence seems to be kind of redundant...

Now The Hook will have somebody to scratch his back. And to entertain him.
