ISLAMIST fanatics have paid £3,000 to help Abu Hamza’s fight against being sent to the US on terror charges.
His supporters forked out for the hook-handed hate cleric, who appealed for cash so he could undergo an independent health review as part of his defence bid.
The Muslim radicals raised the sum in less than 24 hours.
Hamza’s pal Abdul Muhid said: “The money was raised for costs incurred as a result of his upcoming case in the European Court.
“He needs the money to pay for a doctor’s assessment of his health.”
Hamza, 53, is serving seven years in Belmarsh Prison, south London, for stirring up racial hatred.
Asked if Hamza was looking to claim he was in poor health, Muhid, who has served time in jail for inciting murder and terrorism, added: “That should be a factor.
“We do send him money – we send all Muslim prisoners money.”
