Dhimmitude in the UK: why are British authorities allowing this? “Abu Qatada ‘issues jail edicts,'” by Dominic Casciani for the BBC News, April 5 (thanks to James):
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.
He is asking the European Court of Human Rights to overturn a decision by the Law Lords to allow him to be returned to Jordan.
Abu Qatada is presently held in isolation at the high security Long Lartin Prison in Worcestershire.
But the Quilliam Foundation says statements have been appearing online under his name, circulating on both English and Arabic language websites.
In the statements, the writer using the name Qatada congratulates al-Qaeda fighters, claims that the British government opposes Islam and says Muslims should never join the police or army in a non-Muslim country.
