It looks like the Brits are finally cracking down:
Described as "Bin Laden's right-hand man in Europe", Abu Qatada once called on British Muslims to martyr themselves in a holy war on oppression.
He has now been detained by police working with the Immigration Service as the Government cracks down on 'preachers of hate' in Britain.
The radical cleric, aged 44, had links to shoebomber Richard Reid and Zacarias Moussaoui, accused of being the "20th hijacker" in the September 11 attacks, both of whom sought religious advice from him.
My question is - what took them so long?
