Some good news

Soon, this country's total Islamofascist population will be reduced by one. Abu Qatada, known as "Al-Qaeda's ambassador in Europe" has failed in his bid to overturn a Home Office decision to send him back to his native Jordan.

I can't imagine too many people will be mourning his departure. Even The Observer has called for him to be deported. However, Liberty, Amnesty International, and other groups for whom the happiness of terrorists is paramount, are a bit miffed. They claim that Qatada might be tortured on his return. Personally, though, I couldn't care less what the Jordanians do to him. I can think of few people who more deserve the needles under the fingernails.

Hey, Fulham R:
What is this mantra about 'they might get tortured' if sent back home?
Has'nt anyone thought they might get a hero's welcome instead?
"Hey fella, nice try. We'll give you a new identity and you can go back again in three months time".

While there will be many in Jordan to whom Abu Qatada will be something like a hero, I doubt that those in authority will be among them. The reason being, that the principal threat to the Jordanian royal family is from Islamists like al-Qaeda. So, it's in their interests to keep him well under control. Of course, it's not a matter of ideology for the Hashemites (the royal family), it's simply a question of pragmatism.
In the post before this one I talked about the King of Morocco - it's the same principal at work there: he's got to try to control the Islamists, because they'll overthrow him if they get the chance.

So I think torture, or certainly imprisonment, may well be in prospect for Qatada. But, as I said, I really don't care!
