Justice can be done!

It's nice to know that, every so often, justice is done - or so we can hope. As this article from The Alegemeiner shows. It's opening words are balm for the soul of the virtuous (and Zionists and anti-Islamists everywhere: "After a decade-long extradition battle, Abu Hamza, the head preacher of North London’s Finsbury Park Mosque, will begin his trial in the U.S. on April 14 on charges of supporting global terror."

According to the article, "U.S. federal prosecutors will charge the fiery Islamist preacher, who has one eye and a hook for a right hand, with 11 counts of criminal terrorism going back to 1998 and occurring in the U.S., Europe, the Middle East and Asia." This is after we Brits have spent years and millions of pounds trying to get him convicted and/or out of the UK. As we have with Al-Qwadari, now in Jordan.

Their major defence was always on the grounds of their human rights: they wouldn't get a fair trial and/or the evidence against them would be based on the torture of witnesses. I'm, just about, prepared to grant that evidence gained via torture might, possibly, be a tad tainted and unreliable. But their human rights? What about our human rights? Like the right not to be blown up or otherwise harmed by acts of terrorism?

There's more. Let's hope the US justice system rolls remorselessly over him, leaving only bits to be imprisoned for a very long time.
