CLERIC CONVICTED: “The Muslim cleric Abu Hamza al-Masri was found guilty today by a jury in London on charges of using his sermons to incite murder and race hatred, news agencies reported.”

I’m against “hate speech” laws, but if they exist they should certainly be enforced evenhandedly, and there’s a lot of hate speech coming from guys like Hamza. This, however, appears to go beyond simple “hate speech” to include solicitation of murder, though it’s not entirely clear from the story.
