How America’s toughest jail turned hookless Abu Hamza’s hair white in just two years

Gone is the belligerent and imperious stance he would strike as he preached his vile beliefs outside his North London mosque.

Gone, too, are the hooks — where once his hands had been — that he’d brandish to add weight to his threats and to enhance his general malevolence. And gone must be a good five stone from his once portly figure. Prison rations have done him some good, at least.

Abu Hamza, the notorious hate preacher and former imam of Finsbury Park mosque, who for so long was the most terrifying visible embodiment of Islamist extremism in Britain, cuts a pathetic figure as he poses for a new picture taken after two years of solitary confinement in a U.S. prison.

    More likely that in the UK he was dying his hair and beard, and doesn’t have that luxury in his new prison.

    • American luxury solitary confinement – just what Mr hook needed.

    No change in his islamic beliefs. No change in his ambition to destroy the west.
    Let this Egyptian rot in Florence.
    His family have been a boon to Britain – five of his sons have been jailed for their criminal activities.

    Omar Bakri, the former “Tottenham Ayatollah” and founder of banned jihadi group Al-Muhajiroun, has been stabbed in a Sunni-Shia exchange of views at his lodgings in a Lebanese prison. His attempt to hitch a lift back to Britain on a Royal Navy evacuation ship was rebuffed in 2006. He was jailed for life in 2010.

    He’s a lot better off than people living on the streets; his own room with a real bed, which he doesn’t have to share with a goat or camel, heat and airconditioning, three squares a day, and better medical care. And as far as his looks deteriorating he actually looks better than when he went in considering he’s never going to look like a Cary Grant. His lawyer is shedding crocodile tears but then that’s what he’s paid to do.
