SNIPPET: "OSLO, Norway, Jan. 5 (UPI) -- A Muslim extremist leader facing terrorism charges from his Norwegian hosts said this week he's planning on leaving for his native Kurdistan.
Najmaddin Faraj, who goes by the name Mullah Krekar, in the 1990s was one of the co-founders of the Kurdish extremist group Ansar al-Islam, which Western officials say has links to al-Qaida."
SNIPPET: "Krekar is due in Oslo District Court next month to face terrorism charges, the news agency said.
Should he instead return to Kurdistan, he won't be facing any charges from the PUK, a party lawyer told Rudaw."

Stop off for a few nights in the Lincoln Bedroom?
I like their deportation style.
More discussion threads:
Cool. Some people just don’t fit in.
“Fiery”. If he was Christian or Jewish, somehow I think UPI would not be calling him “fiery.” How I hate the MSM.
“Oh that fiery guy!”
Oh! What a deluded fool!
did I need a sarc tag?
Thanks for posting and keeping watch, Cindy. Interesting.
After all these years and all the kowtowing to krekar, and long after it’s already too late. Just dayum. Norway, if he is leaving voluntarily this time, board up your houses and hide your women because all hell is about to break loose.
Whe is his insane brother these days?
I wish he’d leave the Earth.
Just why don’t all these moozlum freaks return to their god-forsaken loser countries? I’m just sayin’...

“Norways Beloved Terrorist Heads Back to Iraq”

SNIPPET: “How time flies! It seems only yesterday that we folks in Norway first heard the name Mullah Krekar. The sometime leader of Ansar al-Islam which narrow-minded individuals insist on calling a terrorist organization, but which I prefer to think of as a heavily armed, Koran-toting Iraqi version of Rotary or the Knights of Columbus the charismatic Krekar has long since become every (well, not quite every) Norwegians lovable grandpa. Now, after many years in Norway, he has announced that he will soon be leaving us and returning to Iraq, where he will continue to pursue the task to which he has consecrated his life: that of serving his God.
And oh, how many ways there are to serve God! Ansar al-Islam, according to the Canadian Institute of Strategic Studies, has burned down girls schools and beaten and killed women for not wearing the burqa. Human Rights Watch notes that under its previous name, Jund al-Islam, Krekars industrious associates took over villages in which they required, among other things, the obligatory closure of offices and businesses during prayer time and enforced attendance by workers and proprietors at the mosque during those times; the veiling of women by wearing the traditional abaya; obligatory beards for men; segregation of the sexes; barring women from education and employment; the removal of any photographs of women on packaged goods brought into the region; the confiscation of musical instruments and the banning of music both in public and private; and the banning of satellite receivers and televisions. The Lords work never ends!
Krekar first came to Norway in 1991 as an asylum seeker although, as is true of many Muslim asylum seekers, his professional obligations obliged him to travel frequently between his new nation and the country from which he had fled. But not till after 9/11 did his name become widely known here.
Arrested in the Netherlands in 2002 on his way back to Norway from Iraq, he was released after four months and allowed to proceed to Norway, where he was again arrested and released a series of torments which, as the discerning reader will readily notice, are not unlike those visited upon Jesus by the Romans and the Sanhedrin. Krekar has lived in Oslo ever since, in apartments which (in newspaper photographs) look quite pleasant, with fine bookcases full of handsomely bound volumes in Arabic. A great man deserves no less.
Over the years Krekar has provided Norway with invaluable spiritual lessons of a sort that a few stubborn Norwegian officials have failed to appreciate, simply because Krekars brand of evangelism involves guns, explosives, and the removal of limbs without anesthesia. Consequently they have persisted in attempts to take him away from us and have thus caused him no little amount of distress. Meanwhile those of us who appreciate Krekar can only be grateful for his long-term presence in our midst and cherish the memories.
Ah, the memories! Heres just a sampling:”
