Five things we have learnt from the trial of Abu Hamza

That our existing laws on racial hatred and incitement to murder are more than enough to deal with these crimes.

That there is a clear divide between free speech and incitement, and it is one that juries are capable of recognising.

That an array of weapons and forged passports were found in the Finsbury Park mosque.
Let us remember that the next time someone tries to dissuade the Police from searching mosques on grounds of religious sensibilities.

That our security services have had an extremely relaxed approach to Islamic extremism.

That taking a softly-softly approach to dangerous people does not guarantee that they will not turn around and attack your way of life.

I am sick of the lack of respect extreme Muslims have for the laws of this land. They should accept and understand that this country is not ruled under 'sharia law'. There is clearly a lack of acceptance of this by these people which I beleive is the fundamental problem.

I agree and would add that the legislation relating to racial hatred and incitement to murder should be applied equally & fairly to everyone. The government should also consider the impact of their 'softly-softly' approach to such groups, especially when they have killed in the county they purport to be proud to live in.
