And war is peace, freedom is slavery [and] ignorance is strength.
“The cartoonist has become an infidel at war, and therefore it is permissible to kill him,” Krekar told the interviewer, arguing the attacks were justified under Islamic law.
Norway Islamist Mullah Krekar a free man

Infamous Norway-based fundamentalist preacher Najmuddin Ahmad Faraj — better known as Mullah Krekar, was released from police custody on Thursday after a Norway court ruled that he did not make threats during a television interview last year.
The 59-year-old Islamist still risks extradition to Italy, however, where a terror charge awaits him.
Krekar was sentenced by the Oslo District Court in October to one and a half years in prison for threatening the life of Halmat Goran, a Kurd who had burned a copy of the Koran. On Thursday, jurors at the Court of Appeal disagreed that Krekar had threatened the man.
Krekar’s comments on national broadcaster NRK came in the same interview in which he praised the Charlie Hebdo terror attacks in Paris.
NOTE: If they released him in order for the Italians to extradite him, then it’s some consolation, but doing so by inverting common sense and reason, is pure buffoonery,.
