England Belongs To Me

Abu Qatada

Abu Qatada al-Filistini (Arabicأبو قتادة الفلسطيني‎, ’Abū Qatāda al-Filisṭīnī), born Omar Mahmoud Othman
(Arabicعمر بن محمود بن عثمان‎ ‘Umar ibn Maḥmūd ibn ‘Uṯmān),[a] in 1959/60, is a Palestinian Muslim of Jordanian 
citizenship. He is under worldwide embargo by the United Nations Security Council Committee
1267 for his alleged affiliation with al-Qaeda.[1] Repeatedly imprisoned in Britain since he was 
first detained under anti-terrorism laws in 2002, he has not been prosecuted there for any 
criminal or conspiracy offences.[2][3][4] The Algerian government has described Abu Qatada as 
being involved with Islamists in London and possibly elsewhere.[5][6] After initially barring the 
United Kingdom from deporting Abu Qatada to Jordan, in May 2012 the European Court of 
Human Rights denied him leave to appeal against deportation without specifying a reason.[7][8]
On 12 November 2012, the Special Immigration Appeals Commission (SIAC) upheld Abu 
Qatada's appeal against deportation and released him on restrictive bail conditions. The Home 
Secretary Theresa May said the government would appeal the decision.[9]
