Why in Heaven’s name are we allowing a convicted terrorist and mass murderer to return to Britain to live in our midst?
On Thursday, Osama bin Laden’s right-hand man — responsible for plotting the U.S. Embassy bombings in East Africa which killed more than 200 — flew in from the States after being freed from prison there.

Bary, 60, was jailed over the devastating 1998 attacks on US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania that killed 224 people. Pictured; firemen in action at the site of a huge bomb explosion that shook a bank building and US embassy in central Nairobi, Kenya, 07 August 1998
It beggars belief that such a dangerous man is on the loose again in Britain. A man the Government battled in the courts to extradite to the U.S. where he was jailed for 25 years — only to be released early on ‘mercy’ grounds after arguing he was so fat his life was at risk.
Bary’s always known how to work the system — particularly the broken British one. We gave him asylum here in 1993 even though he was on the run from Egypt where he was known to be leader of the Islamic Jihad.
Now he is back, once again posing a threat to all of us. Back, with his wife, presumably living in that chi-chi flat at our expense.
What must the families of those he has murdered in terrorist atrocities be feeling? Or the millions of Britons in desperate need of social housing, more than 100,000 of whom have been waiting for more than ten years. Not that bleeding-heart lawyers and Lefties such as Jeremy Corbyn and his ally John McDonnell seem to care. Predictably, they opposed Bary’s extradition to America.

But at heart, it is for governments to stop the abuse of the asylum system and human rights laws by fanatics like Bary who would do us harm. If necessary by changing the legislation.
Bary, I repeat, is a convicted terrorist and he won’t have changed his tune. His son Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary has learned from him — he, too, is a terrorist who left the UK for Syria in 2013 to join ISIS. A year later he was pictured on Twitter holding up the severed head of a man.
Welcoming Bary into this country, allowing him to live off our largesse, is not only an insult to his victims. It is a damning failure by the Government in its most important duty — to keep us safe.
