Why can't we do this, too?

The Telegraph is reporting this morning that France will toss 12 "preachers of hate" out of the country. Also, France has some dozen mosques under constant surveillance for preaching hate and jihad. The article notes that British government officials have several times in the past approved the deportation of jihadist preachers but are always stopped by British courts. In addition, France's interior minister,
Nicolas Sarkozy, announced the proposal of an even tougher anti-terrorism package. I don't know what the procedure is in France for approval of such a measure but it is obvious that judges and the courts are not allowed to interfere with the security of the French people. Britain and the US could take a lesson, although things really are not so bad here. But in Britain it is almost impossible to get yourself deported.
