LONDON - Radical Muslim preacher Abu Qatada on Monday won his appeal against deportation from Britain to Jordan to face terrorism charges.
The decision represents a setback to the British government, which has been trying to get Abu Qatada removed from British soil for years.
Home Office officials say they strongly disagree with the ruling and planned to appeal.
The Special Immigration Appeals Commission Monday blocked the deportation, saying it was not convinced by the government's assurances that no evidence obtained through torture would be used against Abu Qatada in Jordan...Hey, maybe they could send him to Gitmo. ;)
Update: Hanuka "Qatada" (in Hebrew, yet):
