Abu Hamza sentenced 

The Abu Hamza trial in Britain has now reached its conclusion.

Muslim cleric jailed for inciting murder

Abu Hamza, the radical Muslim cleric, was jailed for seven years yesterday after an Old Bailey jury found him guilty of incitement to murder, stirring up racial hatred and possessing a document useful to terrorism.

The big question, now, is why he wasn't arrested three years ago, when police found, in his mosque,....

....an arsenal of weapons and equipment which they believe were to be used in terrorist training camps in Britain.
It included blank firing pistols which could easily have been converted to fire live rounds, a stun gun, knives, CS gas and chemical and nuclear warfare protection suits. Dozens of forged documents, driving licences and passports had been hidden behind ceiling tiles. In the basement was a dormitory for followers to sleep overnight.

The answer seems to be the same reason that none of the people carrying these placards last week have been arrrested.

Tony Blair told MPs that "political correctness" would not stand in the way of prosecuting any Muslim protesters who broke the law.
He acknowledged that there was a justifiable sense of "outrage" at extremist placards brandished at demonstrations in London last weekend against the cartoons and
promised the Government's full backing for any future police action.

So they got away with it once more. But if they do it again, there'll be trouble, and we really mean it this time. Anybody tried that approach with a naughty toddler? It always works, doesn't it?

Anyway, let us be thankful for small mercies. Abu Hamza is behind bars.
