Radical cleric Omar Bakri Mohammed has been detained in Lebanon, Reuters news agency has quoted "security sources" as saying.
A source said: "Sheikh Bakri was picked up by security forces as he was on his way to a local television station for an interview."
ROTF!!! That didn't take long.
Is this the dude who fled England?
He's also the one who told the Brits that they would hear again from him soon.
Story just breaking within the last 10 minutes or so...
I read yesterday that he claimed he wanted to go back to Britain before Christmas in order to get some heart surgery.
At least someone who appreciates the National Health Service :-)
So, I guess he won't be returning to London for his free heart surgery?
Bakri -- who went to Britain in 1985 as an asylum-seeker from Saudi Arabia -- could face treason charges, if prosecutors and police can agree this week that they can successfully prosecute hardliners as traitors in the courts.
How about letting him jog to the airport...in Egypt!
I wondered why he went to Lebanon...
Those people are seriously tired of war for the most part. They just managed to kick out the Syrians and are still rebuilding from their own horrible civil war. Not the place I think a Jihadi would be welcome.
This title sounds so funny -- Bakri means lamb!
From what i heard, he, and several others, have
had all their Brit-benefits yanked, by the
UK Gov. So he wasn't going to get any surgery
on the Brit pence, any more, anyway.
The best way to detain thsee people is to shoot them.
Oh no...does this mean he will miss out on his free heart surgery from the Brit's Health Care Plan?
(Now why couldn't we stinkin' get bin Laden when he was in Pakistan?)
Hopefully he will have a heart attack while in detention.
Sad that the UK (and the rest of us in the West) have tolerated scum like this for so long.
Mohammedanism has been around for 1400 years. They are serious about their goals.
To allow them to operate in our midst is suicide.
Hey Hey Ho Ho, Multiculturalism and "Tolerance" have got to go!
"So, I guess he won't be returning to London for his free heart surgery?"
He'll get a better job done in Lebanese jail. For those who do not know Middle Eastern jails (and I guess most of you guys do not), some workout will be administered thoroughly 3 times a day.
