At what point does a formerly great country rebel after its spirit has been broken by liberalism? To judge from the case of radical Islamic cleric Abu Qatada, the answer is never.
A little background on Qatada:
Videos of his preaching were found in a Hamburg, Germany, apartment used by some of those involved in the 9/11 attacks, including ringleader Mohammad Atta. British and other intelligence agencies asserted he had close ties to al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden.
Counter-terrorism sources also maintained he was a big influence on Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the Jordanian who would emerge as al Qaeda’s leader in Iraq. Both had been convicted of involvement in a terror plot in Jordan in 2000, and according to one al Qaeda operative, it was Abu Qatada who had introduced al-Zarqawi to the al Qaeda leadership. Would-be shoe-bomber Richard Reid was also an admirer.
Britain offered Abu Qatada and his bevy of children asylum. Later the handful of sane people left in the British government tried to get him deported, but they allowed their attempts to be quashed by the malignant and tyrannical European Court of Human Rights. However, Qatada’s requests for new free housing have been obligingly granted.
His comfortable taxpayer-financed digs aren’t the only expense the liberals harboring Qatada inflict on the British:
The surveillance operations to keep him under constant observation has been costing £5million a year and [are] set to continue indefinitely. The money pays for a team of 60 Scotland Yard officers, some MI5 officers and a private security firm.
Qatada moved to his current £400,000 address near Wembley, north west London, in February.
He returned there this week after his second period of time in prison. Housing benefit is understood to cover his current rent of £1,900 a month.
That is, the government pays a guy who is not even a British citizen to plot terror attacks and incite his fellow welfare colonists against the local population.
A neighbor observes,
‘It is outrageous that he and his family are living here at public expense when the rest of us have to go out and work for a living.’
Then do something about it. Whatever it takes to put a stop to the sick evil lunacy that is liberalism, do it.
The same advice goes for Americans, who are following close behind off the same cliff into moonbat insanity.
