Abu Hamza Found Guilty In New York Terror Trial
7:57pm UK, Monday 19 May 2014
By Hannah Thomas-Peter, New York Correspondent
Extradited British cleric Abu Hamza has been found guilty of terrorism in the United States.
The radical preacher faced 11 charges in total, including conspiring to set up a terror training camp in Oregon, conspiring to kidnap Americans in Yemen and providing support to terrorist organisations.
At a federal court in New York, the jury convicted him on all counts.
Hamza, whose real name is Mustafa Kamel Mustafa, has already served a UK prison sentence for using his sermons at the Finsbury Park Mosque in London to incite murder and racial hatred.
He was extradited to the US in 2012 and has been awaiting trial since then.
The prosecution said Hamza used the cover of religion to export terror and violence across the world.
In a court room just blocks from Ground Zero, the jury watched an interview in which Hamza celebrated the 9/11 attacks and the hijackers.
They heard him give speeches justifying suicide bombings, the killing of civilians and urging young men to train for violent jihad.

No, Obama can appoint him as his new Ambassador to Yemen.
When he is sentenced Abu Hamza....... could....... face life in prison.
and He Could be given a Hallal Complaint Birthday Cake and sent home
Poor Abu. He will be housed in an air-conditioned cell, provided with medical care, libraries, legal counsel, exercise room, special foods, and an ENTIRE PRISON to convert to his twisted cult.
That’s the American way.
Not to mention the latest in artificial hands...
...which he will no doubt sue to obtain, and be granted by some idiot judge.
I doubt the death penalty will ever be applied.
This is going to be a setback for his Director of Homeland Security nomination.
Yaaarr. It be a sad day when Cap’n Hookhand mounts the scaffold. It be a sad day for pirates everywhere.
