Abu Hamza al-Masri or "Captain Hook" to his friends, (born 1958) is an Islamic cleric, and former British porn theatre bouncer, currently imprisoned for preaching violence against non-Muslims. Beside the usual preaching of hate, possession of the Al-Qaeda handbook, etc., he has claimed that the Columbia space shuttle disaster was a sign from Allah: there was an Israeli on board, so Allah caused the shuttle to crash, some of the debris landing in Palestine, Texas. Why Allah did not simply smite Israel is not explained.
