More Double Standards from New Labour

The Home Secretary yesterday released a list of sixteen named individuals who are not welcome in Britain due to their beliefs or the ideologies they subscribe to.

These included Islamist clerics and neo-Nazis. It also included Right-wing American radio host Michael Savage - who now insists he will sue Jacqui Smith for being put on a list which includes Hamas members and others who preach death and destruction. His crime was apparently to refer to the Koran as a 'book which inspires hate'.

Despite Jacqui's attempts to appear tough, it's all gone a little bit pear-shaped - it has just emerged that radical cleric Abu Izzadeen, who once heckled then-Home Secretary John 'Comrade Stalin' Reid was released from jail on Saturday after having his term cut by the Court of Appeal (second great decision this week).

He is joined on the streets of East London by four other fanatics who were jailed at the same time.

The preacher urged attacks on infidels around the world, and hosted fundraising events to bankroll attacks on coalition forces in Afghanistan.

Douglas Murray, of the Centre for Social Cohesion, said:

'These men are a danger to society. Abu Izzadeen and his organisation publicly call for attacks against those whom they see as enemies of Islam,' he said.

'Their ideology not only glorifies violent jihad but teaches their followers that taking part in suicide bombings is their duty as Muslims.

'The early release of a hate preacher like Abu Izzadeen demonstrates that the British courts are still far away from understanding the very clear and present danger that this country is facing from militant Islamists.'

British courts out of touch? Well I never.
