Britain finally convicts Choudary

It’s about time. Maybe at least it will end his commentary supporting Islamic radicalism?

Britain’s ‘most hated man’ Anjem Choudary convicted for ISIS support

By Bryony Jones, CNN — Bryony Jones is a journalist at CNN International in London.

(CNN)A notorious hate preacher who led a flag-burning demonstration outside the US embassy on the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks and voiced support for jihad has been convicted of inviting support for ISIS.

Anjem Choudary, 49, has courted controversy over two decades, skirting the edges of the law, backing extremism but with no proof of actually inciting violence. He earned the wrath of Britain’s tabloid newspapers, making him – by his own admission — the country’s “most hated man.”

In 2014, he pledged allegiance to ISIS and its leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, bringing him under scrutiny and leading to his arrest. […./] “

But the sentence is only up to ten years. Is it time for life sentences in these cases? This does seem punitive, when they can also have a radical recruitment effect in prison.

    Gee only 10 years for that bastard. He should get life! Or the death penalty but do they even have that in Britain anymore. Sucks, but at least he’ll be out of the public eye and his big dirty mouth shut off from the public.

    You got a point though about him radicalizing those creatures in jail. That’s too bad. I guess it’s the cost of putting him away for 10 years instead of hanging him and even that’s too good for him. I’d like to see some water boarding of that jihadi, give him the works and choke info from him while in jail. Brits don’t do that of course. I’d like to see Trump get a hold of him. 🙂
