Terror Preacher Abu Hamza Whines About Having to Eat Kosher Prison Food

Remember Abu “Hooky Boo Boo” Hamza al-Masri, the former imam of north London’s Finsbury Park mosque, found guilty of terrorism charges?

He’s back in the news, this time for whining about his prison conditions – which include having to suffer through “religious stressful” kosher food.

Abu Hamza is suing American authorities over ‘cruel’ conditions at the country’s most secure prison – where two of the Isis ‘Beatles’ could face a life sentence.

Hamza, the former imam of north London’s Finsbury Park mosque, says he isn’t getting enough sunlight in his cell – and being deprived of his hooks means he has to tear open packets of food with his rotting teeth, three of which have been lost.

The hate preacher, who is in solitary confinement at ADX Florence, claims he suffers with ‘stress and anxiety’ in the Colorado facility, and has now filed a civil lawsuit against US attorney general William Barr, The Sunday Times reports.

He claims he has had to switch from a Muslim halal diet to a Jewish kosher one because they trays they are served on are ‘easier to eat from’ – a move he describes as ‘religiously stressful’.

Hamza also says his first cell had ‘no natural light’ and measured 8ft by 16ft, with the lack of a suitable disabled toilet leaving his ‘often soiling his clothes’. He claims his arm stumps would bleed while turning on the taps.

He also says one time his toenails were left unclipped for 14 months, causing him ‘severe pain and difficulty walking’.

But on the positive side, none of the other prisoners are likely to take a liking to him. Plus being deprived of his hooks should make it safer for him to scratch his nether regions.

Also, the prohibition on alcohol means he won’t ever have to suffer through Manischewitz wine.
