Bin Laden's Muslim Cleric Unwelcome Neighbor to London Jews


Osama Bin Laden’s former spiritual adviser and preacher of hate has become an unwelcome neighbor among Orthodox Jews in a London neighborhood as secular protests against his presence make life difficult on the Sabbath.

Jordanian terrorist suspect Abu Qatada, born Omar Mahmoud Othman, is a radical Islamic cleric who has also been called 'the spiritual guide to Al Qaeda.' He lives about half a mile from a United Synagogue congregation, according to a report by The Jewish Chronicle.
