Good news indeed.

Still, it's a case of "one down, 1.x billion to go."

America is not taking good care of Abu Hamza. :nono: He is suing the US authorities over his ‘rotting teeth’ ;)

I bet he wants to go back to England. There he had his own private nurse
Oh, BOO HOO…Convicted Muslim terrorist and hate preacher Abu Hamza is suing US authorities over his ‘rotting teeth’ and alleged ‘cruel and degrading’ conditions at his Supermax jail

Abu Hamza, extradited from the UK to the US, is suing American authorities over alleged ‘cruel’ conditions at the country’s maximim-security prison in Colorado.

Daily Mail (h/t Lisa) Hamza, the former imam of north London‘s terror-linked Finsbury Park mosque, says he isn’t getting enough sunlight in his cell – and being deprived of his hooks means he has to tear open packets of food with his rotting teeth, three of which have been lost.

The hate preacher, who is in solitary confinement at ADX Florence, claims he suffers with ‘stress and anxiety’ in the Colorado facility, and has now filed a civil lawsuit against US attorney general William Barr, The Sunday Times reports.

He claims he has had to switch from a Muslim halal diet to a kosher one because the trays they are served on are ‘easier to eat from’ – a move he describes as ‘religiously stressful’.

Hamza, 62, is appealing his incarceration, claiming that ‘inhuman and degrading’ conditions breach his human rights. He claims that little accommodation was made for his disabilities, which include a lack of forearms and one blind eye.

Hamza also says his first cell had ‘no natural light’ and measured 8ft by 16ft, with the lack of a suitable disabled toilet leaving his ‘often soiling his clothes’. He claims his arm stumps would bleed while turning on the taps.

He also says one time his toenails were left unclipped for 14 months, causing him ‘severe pain and difficulty walking’.

The cleric revealed he underwent a hunger strike for at least 10 days in protest of his treatment at the prison, where inmates are kept in ‘cage-like’ cells for as many as 23 hours a day and banned from contact with others.

Hamza is also suing US authorities for damages for alleged wrongdoings amid ‘cruel and unusual conditions in prolonged, continuous, dangerous solitary confinement since 2012’, court filings show.

That was the year of his extradition to stand trial for supporting al-Qaeda, and in 2015 he was moved to ADX Florence following a conviction and life sentence with no possibility of parole.

The jail could become the new home of London-born Isis members Alexanda Kotey, 36, and El Shafee Elsheikh, 32, who are allegedly behind the beheading of two British aid workers and two US journalists.

.They should of course not refer to him as a "Muslim Prisoner" as the juxtaposition of the word "Muslim" with "prisoner" will associate the word "Muslim" in the public mind with the word "prisoner" and by extension with words like "crime" and "criminal". This will inevitably fuel Islamophobia and provide ammunition for the far right. It must therefore declared that Hamza is not a Muslim as no true Muslim would ever do anything that could land him in prison. As he is not a Muslim there is no reason for Hamza to have access to a Qur'an particularly given his history of corrupting its anti-sharia message of peace and love. Nor should he have access to an imam or be provided with halal food because there is no need to provide such things to "Muslim prisoners" which is a contradiction in terms.
