Abu Hamza: Imprisoned for Talking Rubbish

I encourage you to read Brendan O’Neill’s splendid essay on the conviction of Abu Hamza for talking rubbish here. The case of Abu Hamza is a recent and egregious example of how the British government is suppressing free speech in the name of waging the War on Terror. And, I might add, it's far more disturbing than the case of a university telling a faculty member not to post those infamous cartoons on his office door.

Not only does it seem that the British government has done nothing for safety by imprisoning Hamza but they may have created a martyr or even worse a reason for someone else to be kidnapped for exchange.
