Arutz 7: Bin Laden's Muslim Cleric Unwelcome Neighbor to London JewsInteresting that Shabbath is the motivation behind the protests, and not fear of violence, if not death (חו"ח) by the hands of this terror-monger's "fans." But, love for Shabbath and misswoth, in general, are certainly as good as any motivations.
Osama Bin Laden’s former spiritual adviser has become an unwelcome neighbor among Orthodox Jews in a London neighborhood.
Chana Ya'ar, February 11, 2013
Osama Bin Laden’s former spiritual adviser and preacher of hate has become an unwelcome neighbor among Orthodox Jews in a London neighborhood as secular protests against his presence make life difficult on the Sabbath.
Jordanian terrorist suspect Abu Qatada, born Omar Mahmoud Othman,is a radical Islamic cleric who has also been called 'the spiritual guide to Al Qaeda.' He lives about half a mile from a United Synagogue congregation, according to a report by The Jewish Chronicle.
A gag order has prevented the Jewish publication from revealing the exact location of the terror suspect’s home, and the precise identity of the synagogue.
However, the newspaper noted that the man once known as “Osama Bin Laden’s right-hand man in Europe,” recently relocated with the approval of the British Home Office to a street that is home to a number of Jewish families.
The move came following numerous protests outside the terror suspect’s previous residence in northwest London.So, basically, these protestors won their battle, and the Jews get punished. Typical.
The Muslim cleric was released on bail last November to house arrest with a 16-hour curfew, an electronic tag around his ankle, a ban on using the Internet, and a restriction against contacting a list of specific individuals. He recently won the latest round in a long-running battle against deportation back to Jordan, although the government has said it will appeal the decision...I see it's a rough life being a supporter of terror. I mean, seriously....
...Over the past ten years, Abu Qatada has won each appeal against deportation, claiming he will be tortured in Jordan, were he to stand trial on terror charges there.Poor baby. Boo-hoo!
Married with four children, the 52-year-old cleric lives in a 3-bedroom home in the Harrow area of London, according to The Daily Mail. Several media reports noted the government lied to the family that owned the house into which Abu Qatada’s family was moved. The real estate agent who closed the deal told the owners the prospective tenant was an American company that wished to rent a place for its employees.The British government lied? I'm shocked! No, not really.
An unnamed minister was quoted by The Daily Mail as saying Abu Qatada has received more than half a million British pounds Sterling in legal aid “to help in his fight against extradition from the UK.”Well, as we have learned time and time again, supporting terrorism pays, in this case a half a million pounds.
Whether it is love of Shabbath, or love of protecting your families lives, how many terrorists or supporter of terrorism and the annihilation of the Jewish People have to move into your neighborhoods in Great Britain, before you feel the discomfort Jews are supposed to feel while in Galuth (Exile)?
It's not where you belong. You belong in Israel.
When will British Jews take the hint?
