"DEATH" RANT (In inverted commas)

Another story from my favourite newspaper who I'm sure are about to post me a cheque for my work any minute now...


A POEM recited by jailed hate preacher Abu Hamza, in which he glorifies martyrdom, has suddenly appeared on YouTube.

Hamza, serving seven years in London’s top-security Belmarsh Prison, delivers nine verses in Arabic under the title: “Death, eagerly for the sake of Allah.”

He praises the “spirit of the martyr” and asks for jihad fighters to be given God’s mercy...

...The verses, used as the soundtrack to an al-Qaeda style video lasting 3½minutes, has also been posted on a site run by a London-based Egyptian exile listed in the US as a “global terrorist”.

A photo of the hook-handed cleric was displayed with an announcement that the recording is by “Sheik Abu Hamza Al Masri from Belmarsh Prison in Britain”...

...The tape is the first time a new recording of Hamza has been issued since he was held four years ago for soliciting murder. But a written interview with him appeared on the web three months ago...

...The Prison Service insisted: “There is no proof this recording was made by Hamza and no evidence it was made in prison.”

But internet terror expert Neil Doyle said: “I have spent hours listening to Hamza recordings. I am 1,000 per cent sure it is him.”

Well that is Hamza alright, and he's rhyming. God knows why they always record these things with the microphone in a bucket. Was it recorded before he went to prison? Don't know. Are the walls in Belmarsh particularly echoing? Fuck knows. I've got no idea what this tape says.
