    'The Sun called on Britain to defy the court and said Tory MPs had "finally lost patience" with it. One MP, Chris Heaton-Harris, told the paper: "We should tell [the court] to stick their judgment where political correctness doesn't shine – and send Hamza to the US to receive justice.

    In fact the European court of human rights judgment authorised the UK government to extradite Hamza and up to four others to the US."

    The Sun told yesterday how a European Court of Human Rights ruling cleared the way for Hamza to be booted out of Britain to face terrorism charges in the States.

    HATE preacher Abu Hamza is whingeing he will miss his family when he is extradited to America.

    The hook-handed Islamic cleric, 53, now expects to spend the rest of his life in a US jail.

    The Rev Stephen Coles, of St Thomas’ Church, near Hamza’s old HQ at London’s Finsbury Park mosque, said: “He knows nobody in the US and his family is here.

    “The possibility of any real contact between him and his family from the moment he goes to the US, assuming he is found guilty, is remote.”

    "But there is one solution. His sponging relatives could go there too."

    Fantastic news for the UK this week. Hope it sends a message to all potential terrorists that they can not get by on political correctness anymore. Let them use up Americas resources! Au Revoir! ma'a salama!

    Why should a man, any man, be able to be put on trial in the US rather than here, just because their president said so?

    Because he plotted crimes against the US and their military?

    Whilst I disagree with everything the man preaches, I disagree with his extradition. He should have been tried here, same with Babar Ahmed.

    The number of recent extraditions to the US is scary in my opinion, the internet piracy ones are outrageous to be honest. If they've commited a crime, they've done it on British soil, so should be tried here. If the UK courts don't think what they've done is wrong then why the **** are they sending them to America to end up in prison?

    High time we stood up for our citizens and said no to America.

    Hope he is sent to Texas.

    Now send that one back to Jordan as well please. Europe has enough hate preachers of their own no need any imported ones hanging about.

    What if a white atheist kid sitting at home on his laptop illegally shared Hollywood films? Should he face what prisoners do in their county jails even though he never entered the country?

    The US would be wrong on this occasion as it is not on the same level as plotting to kill people and being involved with terrorism.

    Terrorism should be the only think they should be allowed to extradict for, apart from if a british citizen commits a crime in the US then comes back to the UK.

    Only because they were forced to bend to the mighty will of The Sun and thus the will of the people.

    Why does it have to be a "white kid"? Is that the pinnacle of innocence nowadays?

    because he threatened their security
    plus why would we want things like that using up our limited resources?

    Why is, "terrorism" a crime which encompasses a broad range of acts special? You don't have to kill or even harm other humans to be a terrrorist, non-lethal terrorism would be on the same level as illegally sharing movies in terms of damage caused, but to extradite a kid for such an act is as be both agree disproportionate. Hypothetically, a person who broke no Brtish law could be extradited and stand trial in the US because his acts were defined as terrorism there but not here, and this would be a miscarriage of justice in my opinion; this country must protect the rights of each of its citizens.

    Lets not kid ourselves, it is. If it was black or brown kid everything would be second guessed. No offence, I'm just pointing out what I find to be true.
