    'Abu Qatada will be moved to RAF Northolt in west London and deported to Jordan in the early hours of Sunday morning. It marks the end of a near decade-long legal battle to remove the preacher, who the Government has described as a "truly dangerous individual" and a "key player" in al Qaeda-related terrorism. Sky News understands the 51-year-old will be driven from Belmarsh prison in southeast London to RAF Northolt around midnight tonight. A military aircraft will be waiting to take off around 2am on Sunday, heading for an isolated airstrip near the Jordanian capital Amman. The cleric will...

    'Violent foreign extremists should be put on the first plane home, a furious Tory MP demanded today. Former army officer Bob Stewart said the killers of drummer Lee Rigby in Woolwich had succeeded in securing publicity for their ‘perverted ideas’ and urged tough action to deal with ‘anyone that supports them. And he expressed surprise that the police did not shoot the attackers dead at the scene. The MP for Beckenham, which is not far from Wollwich in London, said politicians have ‘somehow got to deal with’ the aftermath of the violent killing. He also called on Home Secretary Theresa...

    Radical preacher Abu Qatada must remain in custody following his arrest for allegedly breaching his bail conditions, a judge ruled today. UK Border Agency officials arrested Qatada on Friday, days ahead of the Government’s latest deportation bid in court, following raids by the Metropolitan Police Service Counterterrorism unit. … The court heard evidence suggesting Qatada had broken his bail condition which prohibits him from permitting mobile phones to be switched on in his house while he is present, the spokesman added. …

    The family of radical preacher Abu Qatada has won an injunction preventing protesters from demonstrating outside their home. His wife and five children were granted an “anti-harassment” order by a High Court judge in London. Justice Silber also granted them an injunction against various protest groups, preventing them misusing private information about the family—such as their names and address. The judge stressed that his decision did not prevent organizations from protesting against Qatada, provided demonstrations take place more than 500 meters (1640 feet) from the London house where they are living. …

    LONDON (Reuters)—A radical cleric once described as "Osama bin Laden's right-hand man in Europe" was freed from a British prison to live under virtual house arrest on Monday after a court ruled that his detention without trial was unlawful. The Jordanian preacher known as Abu Qatada must wear an electronic tag to allow the police to keep track of him, spend 22 hours a day at his family home and is banned from using the Internet and mobile phones. Twice convicted in his absence in Jordan of involvement in terrorist plots, Britain says he is still a national security risk...

    Abu Qatada is known as a dangerously radical preacher. So what has he actually been saying? ABU QATADA has been called the "most significant extremist preacher in the UK", "al-Qaeda's spiritual leader in Europe" and "a truly dangerous individual". News of his upcoming release from jail this week - albeit on stringent bail conditions – has caused outrage, with even his defence team suggesting he poses a "grave risk" to national security. Why is Abu Qatada being freed and can he ever be deported? So what does this radical Muslim cleric actually preach? Here are some of the things he...

    Abu Qatada, the radical Islamic preacher once described as Osama bin Laden’s “right hand man in Europe”, will be back on the streets within days after being granted bail. A senior immigration judge said yesterday that Qatada could be released despite even his own defence team suggesting that he posed a “grave risk” to Britain’s national security. Qatada was granted bail by Mr Justice Mitting after the European Court of Human Rights ruled last month that he could not be deported to his native Jordan. The bail conditions will be similar to those set in 2008, with the cleric confined...

    It is rare to get an insider's perspective on the emergence of al-Qaeda. It is also rare to get a glimpse of the world of spies and agents. To provide both is incredibly unusual. Omar Nasiri - not his real name but one chosen to protect his identity - says he spent seven years working as an agent for European intelligence services and as an al-Qaeda operative, part of the time in the UK. He provides a unique insight into how al-Qaeda was far more organised, coherent and determined in the 1990s than was appreciated at the time. Jihad militants...

    Note: Photo and Video included. SNIPPET: "Radical Islamic cleric Abu Qatada has been issuing messages to his followers from his British jail cell, according to anti-extremism researchers. Statements said to be from the Jordanian have appeared recently on a number of extremist websites. The Quilliam Foundation think tank say Abu Qatada has released three letters from prison in four months. But the Prison Service says Quilliam's claims that it has been incompetent are "completely unfounded". Abu Qatada was once dubbed Osama bin Laden's spiritual ambassador to Europe and recently lost a battle to stay in the UK." SNIPPET: "There is...

    How The West Was Won The rapid and unexpected decline of the Sunni insurgency in Iraq was officially recognized this week, when Maj. Gen. John Kelly, commanding the Marine Expeditionary Force, turned operational control of Anbar Province over to the Iraqi army and police. Anbar, a vast expanse of desert the size of North Carolina, had been the stronghold of the Sunni insurgency. For years, foreign fighters loyal to al-Qaida had sneaked across Iraq's northwestern border with Syria, into Anbar and down a "rat line" of safe houses in Haditha, Ramadi and Hit. From Fallujah, the arch terrorist Zarqawi...

    Abu Qatada, wanted by Jordan for involvement in terrorist attacks, strolls down a London street, carrying groceries paid for by the British taxpayer. Beside him, on a mobile phone, apparently acting as a go-between, is Yasser Al-Sirri, wanted by Egypt for aiding an assassination attempt in 1993 of the then Prime Minister with a car bomb, which instead killed a young girl. Both these men despise the country that is sheltering them. [...] Supported by state benefits, Qatada began preaching in local mosques his blood-thirsty anti-Jewish and anti-Christian messages and calling for Muslims to kill non-Muslims. Because of a toxic...
