Default Britain and France continue to pamper the terrorists

There are no torture allegations in britain, oh no heaven forbid

LONDON (AFP) - Radical Muslim cleric Abu Hamza al-Masri, who is in a British jail on incitement to murder charges, is to sue welfare officials for thousands of pounds (dollars) in extra state benefits, a newspaper said.

Hamza, who is due in court next month on incitement to murder charges, claims he has been denied benefits worth 200 pounds (290 euros, 389 dollars) a week for nearly three years, The Sun newspaper said.

His family are already taking in benefits worth over 1,000 pounds a week, it said.

Meanwhile, he is kept at the taxpayers’ expense in jail, has his own personal nurse and even received a new hook worth 5,000 pounds, which is in place of his missing hand, it said.

A jail source was quoted as saying: “He has a cheek.”
France doesnt need to kill terrorists when they can just dole out some of that Oil For Food money from saddam to pay for all the terrorists wants and needs.

Prime Minister Jean-Pierre Raffarin earlier announced the news to parliament, talking of his “profound joy” at the release.

Thierry Chesnot, brother of Christian, said it was a “wonderful Christmas present” and added that he had been told by the French prime minister’s office that they were both in good health.

Reports conflicted as to whether the journalists were in Baghdad or Amman, in neighbouring Jordan.

Official French statements made no mention of any ransom being paid or other deal to secure the two men’s release.

Mr Chesnot and Mr Malbrunot are thought to have been the longest-held Western hostages in Iraq.

The French press ran a continuous campaign for their release.

Mr Chesnot, 37, was working for Radio France Internationale and Mr Malbrunot, 41, for Le Figaro daily newspaper.

They were taken with their Syrian driver, Mohammed al-Jundi, who was later found during the US-led assault on Falluja.

The journalists’ captors - the Islamic Army in Iraq (IAI) - initially demanded that France scrap a law banning Muslim headscarves from being worn in schools - a demand shunned by France.

They were later reported to have requested a ransom but a statement quoted by Arabic TV channel al-Jazeera on Tuesday said the reporters were freed for political reasons.

They were freed “because they were proven not to spy for US forces, in response to appeals and demands from Islamic institutions and bodies, and in appreciation of the French government’s stand on the Iraq issue and the two journalists’ stand on the Palestinian cause”, the IAI was quoted as saying.

The Sun newspaper said.
Not the most reliable of reporting can be found in this 'newspaper'. I concede it's the highest circulation newspaper in the UK, although most I know who read this paper check the tits on page 3 before skipping to the back pages to see how many points their fantasy football team racked up at the weekend.

It was, afterall, The Sun who brought us the story about the Gypo who was gonna sue Tony Martin (Farmer shot a 16 yo Gypo robbing his place - Uncle Gypo got away with minor wounds) for 'loss of earnings' from his gunshot wounds. Now The Sun, in their typical way, sensationalised this story when it wasn't even worth a small column on page 6 of one of the broadsheets. Suffice to say common sense prevailed and Gypo scumbag was told to fuck off.

It wouldn't suprise me if we (the taxpayer) ended up footing the bill for a new 'hook'. Although, I can imagine it was for safety reasons, it would be foolish letting someone walk around a prison with a deadly weapon strapped onto a stump of a wrist.

I don't see what point you are trying to make with the France story. Two French reporters were finally freed despite the French government NOT giving in and removing the anti-headscarves law (which I think is a bad law anyway). There's nothing to indicate any ransom was paid, just that there was a demand for a ransom and comments that governments don't want to for fear of provoking further kidnappings. Sounds like the kidnappers just gave up and weren't as bloodthirsty as other groups, unless you have some proof to show otherwise.

Britain panders to Terrorists? We send our troops into Iraq and get comments like that? Nice! Why don't you fuck off, Chuck?

Before you do, though; you might want to do a bit of research on NORAID and do a bit of digging on it's financial links with the IRA.

You write as if that law was written specifically to protect islamics, when it's actually intended to prohibit abuse against any religion, be it christianity, Islam or whatever, but again, you seem to spin it to your own perspective, rather than be objective about it.

I do agree though, that this law is a bad idea; politically correctness for it's own sake, almost. The UK government shoots itself in the foot again. Nothing fresh there...

I'd be the first to say that our laws need tightening to keep these bastards in check and make sure that they get what's coming to them, but to suggest that we are actively *assisting* terrorists through choice as a national policy, is merey board-trolling.
