Because we all know that a man that predicates his existence on the subjugation and terror of others, would never promote terrorism and make death threats.
Mullah Krekar on trial over death threats
Published: 15 Feb 2012
Norway-based Islamist Mullah Krekar plead not guilty on Wednesday on the first day of his trial on charges of promoting terrorism and making death threats, most notably against the leader of the Conservative Party.
”My client is not going to plead guilty to committing an offence. He’s a very religious person who has explained how Islam views a number of problems that were posed to him,” Krekar’s lawyer, Brynjar Meling, told news agency NTB shortly before the trial started.
Ther 55-year-old Krekar, a firebrand jihadist whose real name is Najmuddin Faraj Ahmad, stands accused of threatening Convervative Party (Høyre) leader Erna Solberg during a meeting in Oslo with the international press on June 10th 2010. He risks up to 15 years behind bars if found guilty, according to Norwegian media reports.
Norway’s Supreme Court ruled in 2007 to expel Krekar from the country in the interests of national security in a decision signed By Solberg. But with Iraq unable to guarantee that Krekar would not be sentenced to death, Norway put the expulsion order on hold.
