New York Prison to Replace Jihadist’s Hook with Spork


Abu Hamza was quite the celebrity Islamist over in the UK, but since then “Captain Hook”, who lost a hand and an eye fighting for Allah in Afghanistan but couldn’t get them back from him, has been extradited to the United States to face a whole raft of Islamophobic charges, such as promoting a terrorist training camp in the US and providing aid to Al Qaeda.

There was some drama as the European Court of Human Rights tried to block Abu Hamza’s extradition over worries that he might be treated inhumanely. And then he was finally transferred over to the penal system in the United States where his infamous hooked hand was taken away from him.

And now it may be replaced by something better. A Spork.

The radical preacher, 54, is facing 11 terror charges in the US after finally being extradited from the UK last year.

Hamza, who lost his hand and an eye in an explosion in Afghanistan, has been fuming since he was stripped of his metal hook by US jail staff because it was a security risk.

His lawyers say he is unable to use toilets properly and can’t turn taps on or off.

Now they want him to have a new prosthetic hand with a “spork”. Lawyer Lindsay Lewis said: “We’ve been trying for five months now to get our client a better prosthetic limb but they keep changing the time lines. It’s very frustrating for him. He finds it hard to eat, use the bathroom and even turn on the hot and cold taps.”

I’m not sure how a Spork will help Abu Hamza turn off the water or use the bathroom, but then again I’m not a lawyer. But in case there’s no doubt that we go the extra mile for terrorists. Halal meals, Harry Potter movies and even their own Spork hands.

    Sure have to appreciate that Abu is finally getting something here with 'pork in it…..

      Hamza was one of those clumsy Islamic bomb makers, whereas everything that could possibly go wrong, did go wrong!

    Abu Hamza is the perfect poster child for Islam, religion of peace. Allah is really merciful and considerate with his children. His whole "look" would make a wonderful Halloween costume.

    Hey abu, have you tried to wipe your ass with your hook hand?
    Poor abu is life so tough for you in prison? How about if you used your other hand to open the taps and also eat. Abu are these questions too difficult for you to understand? Would we get the same service if we were in a muslim prison?

    "I’m not sure how a Spork will help Abu Hamza turn off the water or use the bathroom, but then again I’m not a lawyer."

    How does a hook help him use the toilet? Maybe that explosion blew up more than we've heard.

      look at that picture. That's his right hand. Muslims are supposed to use the bathroom with their LEFT HAND ONLY!

        "look at that picture. That's his right hand. Muslims are supposed to use the bathroom with their LEFT HAND ONLY!"

        I know, they're such liars. Lying literally is like breathing for jihadis.

    This is just another bleeding heart liberal lawyer trying to make us feel bad. It will not work for me, as I myself lost my right-hand 6 years ago in a car wreck. I choose not to wear my hook or fake hand and have very few problems taking care of myself or my family. None of my struggles are in personal care, nor twisting knobs of any kind. I don't ask taxpayers to modify me or my home to deal with my handicap.

      The military has invented new prosthetics that actually have fingers that move. The advancements have been nothing short of astounding.

    There is a Jewish dictum which states, "those who are merciful to the cruel, end up cruel to the merciful". It sounds like a very logical assumption, but it isn't, at least not in this upside down world. In fact, leftists (and they are the ones who surely mandated giving a spork to the terror fiend) believe that by showing terrorists that westerners really are fair people, that it will somehow soften their jihadi ways.

    Aw poor baby. I wonder how many times he's poked himself in his azz with that Longshoreman's Hook???

    The best punishment for this fugly beast is to force it to look in a mirror at its disgusting face until it draws its last breath.
