Hi All,Im in a bit of a quandary. I respect human rights but am struggling with the non-extradition of Abu Hamza who incited so much hatred  and telling people to kill everyone who wasn't Muslim (like he'd know who was and  wasn't !) Hitchens said "incitement to religious hatred could ONLY mean incitement to hatred by religious people"

Now he has some sort of human right (form the EU court of Human Rights) not to be extradited from the UK because he "may" be tortured.

What do people think about this. I'm in two minds.

Is it a human right to incite hatred and killing?

It's not a human right to incite violence, but it is to have a fair trial. Letting the criminal justice system devolve into barbaric torture chambers & kangaroo courts hurts us all way more than a few rabid jihadists. I care very little for Abu Hamza, but I'm very concerned about the rest of us in the civilized world.

thank you Artor I know this is right in my "head" but my anger is leading me astray. I understand he's a sociopath under the guise of being a Muslim "cleric" but it seems his religiosity is something that the courts seem to defer too. now we have another "sovereign" state court making decisions on behalf of he UK that we should tolerate his hatred and this bugs me as the majority of Muslims in he UK do care about his extreme politics/religion

regards

Bob

Hate may be a human right, but its propagation is a criminal act.

thanks. so why is he not on trial?
