Diana West 'splains the Abu Hamza conundrum

From a legal standpoint, international and national, Iran, North Korea, Darfur, Abu Hamza, UN Oil-for-Food, and the "domestic spying" (which is neither) scandal have been needling my noggin.

Maybe someone can make this make sense without a PC-to-English and back-to-PC filter.

For the prosecution, David Perry says: "This is nothing more or less than preaching hatred and murder," which, he makes clear, has nothing to do with Islam.

For the defense, Edward Fitzgerald says: "It is said he was preaching murder. But he was actually preaching from the Koran itself."

Well, which is it, gentlemen? He's preaching murder that has nothing to do with Islam; or he's preaching the Koran that has nothing to do with murder. For people trying to fend off jihad in their midst, the question becomes a distracting conundrum.

Both sides appear to be making non-legal arguments to avoid offending certain sensitive, yet violent rage prone people.
