We need laws like that in America because many on Right-wing radio and some anchors on Fox News like their former star, Glen Beck, have tacitly called for violence in America
. Fox News owners have even been accused of fraud in England; is our system too weak to go after super-rich Media mogul crooks?

Seems a little like that movie, "Minority Report" to me. In that movie you could be arrested for a 'Future Crime' which you had not committed yet, but a pool of psychics forsaw it so you got arrested, put in deep freeze and the crime did not happen which led to the ethical question of how do you arrest someone for something they did not do?
Arresting the Egyptian News TV Anchor for 'inciting the murder of the Egyptian President' seems the same. The Egyptian president was not, in fact, murdered, so where's the crime?
Arrest him for hate speech, or creating a public disturbance, sure -- but it's not attempted murder at all.
