THERE were renewed calls for the deportation of Abu Hamza al-Masri yesterday after he said that Allah had destroyed the shuttle because it was a trinity of evil against Islam.
The militant cleric said that God had destroyed the Columbia because it was carrying American Christians, an Indian-born Hindu and an Israeli Jew. He added that the crafts explosion was a message from God because the first Israeli in space, Ilan Ramon, a former fighter pilot, was killed over an area of Texas called Palestine.
The former imam of Finsbury Park Mosque in North London came under fierce criticism from politicians and leading Muslims. They accused him of inciting racial and religious hatred and revelling in the deaths of innocent people.
Mr Hamza, 44, said: The Muslim people see these pilots as criminals. By going into space they would have sharpened the accuracy of their bombs through satellites. These missions would increase the number of satellites for military purposes. It would increase the slavery of governance of other countries by America. It is a punishment from God. Muslims see it that way. It is a trinity of evil because it carried Americans, an Israeli and a Hindu, a trinity of evil against Islam.
The Muslim Council of Great Britain said: The vast majority of Muslims are now quite disgusted by (Mr Hamzas) sentiments.
Andrew Dismore, Labour MP for Hendon, who has campaigned for the removal of Mr Hamzas British citizenship, added: There is sufficient evidence to prosecute Mr Hamza from the things that he has said. Whitehall officials are already looking at the possibility of deporting the cleric after it was disclosed by The Times that his British citizenship is based on a bigamous marriage.
The row over Mr Hamzas comments came as Nasa disclosed that damage to the shuttle during its launch has emerged as the leading theory for its break-up. It said the official investigation was concentrating on a piece of foam insulation that fell from the shuttle during lift-off, striking thermal plates on its wing.
... It is a trinity of evil because it carried Americans, an Israeli and a Hindu, a trinity of evil against Islam" ...How could any child of modernity--anyone who's ever watched a televsion or used a computer or flown aboard a commercial aircraft--serve a god or gods that were this bloody primitive? It's like the Imam worships a volcano or a thunder god or something. He may as well offer up children to Baal or kiss the stony feet of Molech.
These are among the numerous human rights violations we see occur with alarming frequency in Tony Blair's Britain.
We've seen it happen in Bosnia and Kosovo, now NATO has no other choice than to order a humanitarian bombing of London to protect the rights of Muslims there.
said Jerry Falwell.
Oh, I meant Abu Hamza al-Masri. How the heck did that happen?

I don't know. Who could ever imagine Falwell calling a tragic loss of American lives a message from God?

FREEREPUBLIC.com - Discussion Thread - Topic: IDF.il - Spokesperson's Unit Article: "AL QAEDA IS A DANGER TO THE FREE WORLD" (ARTICLE SNIPPET: "An Israeli security source stressed that "Al-Qaeda"persists in attempting to re-establish its terror infrastructure and is also striving to acquire unconventional weapons. Recently, they have set up covert cells in areas under Palestinian Authority control for the purpose of carrying out terror attacks. The increasing threat against the free world inherent in Al-Qaeda may be seen in the extreme anti-western line taken by that organization, in which all citizens of democratic counties are defined as "combatants" thus conferring religious legitimacy to the indiscriminate killing of civilians. An article published recently on one of the Internet sites identified with Al-Qaeda, endorsing annihilation of the United States and its allies through use of nuclear and biological weapons, conveys, according to the security source, the urgent need for cooperation in the fight against international terror. The following is a translation of the article that endorses "annihilation of the United States" with nuclear and biological weapons: Nuclear Warfare is the Solution for Destroying America...")
