"No, your Honor, I didn't do any of the stuff you saw on tape"

I've been wondering what out old friend Abu Izzadeen has been up to and why hasn't he been in the news for a while.

Turns out he has been waiting for his trial, and apparently, unlike some other fundamentalists, has been quiet for a while.

Now he is trying to explain to the court that when he said "we are terrorists" he did not really mean it. It's kind of hard to explain that he did not mean to incite terrorism and raise funds for it when they court has just seen videos of him doing exactly that.

On a related note, there was a lot of weirdness in the UK lately, and I wanted to write about it, but Jussi Halla-aho already did, and very thoroughly.

But even the British sometimes get something right, and for once they decided not to let an extremist cleric into the country. On the grounds of peace and security. Muslims are - surprise? - outraged, and sources close to al-Qaradawi blame the Zionists just in case.
