Having a terrorist for a neighbor

Check out this article by a man who lives down the street from Abu Hamza.

"Your family is not in danger." Though strictly true, this reassurance does not reassure me at all. The threat from al-Qa'eda is so all-encompassing that it justifies extraordinary measures.

But they have been forced upon us by the most urgent of necessities.
