Britain ousts Abu Hamza

It a move that defines "it's about time", the British government has removed rabble-rouser and terrorist sycophant Abu Hamza from his post as cleric of a London mosque with strong ties to Al Qaeda.

The final straw was his reference to the seven astronauts on the Columbia as "thugs of space" who deserved to die. Making reference to the three religions represented by the crew—Christianity, Judaism, and Hinduism—he stated the the "trinity of evil" was punished by Allah.

Hamza is best known for his extremist brand of Islam, his support of Al Qaeda, and his links to "shoe bomber" Richard Reid and "20th bomber" Zacarias Moussaoui, both of whom had attended services in his mosque.
