Norway attempts to relocate Islamic hate preacher to remote village 300 miles north of Oslo

Najmuddin Faraj Ahmad, known as Mullah Krekar and the original leader of an Iraqi jihadist group with links to al-Qaeda, says the move will separate him from his family

The Norwegian government is facing a court battle over an attempt to force an Islamic hate preacher to relocate from the capital, Oslo, to a remote village of 2,500 people for national security reasons.

If the government has its way, Kyrksæterøra, a sleepy village set among the fjords of Norway’s rugged coast, some 300 miles north of Oslo, could soon find itself hosting the country’s most notorious Islamist.

Najmuddin Faraj Ahmad, known as Mullah Krekar, was the original leader of an Iraqi jihadist group with links to al-Qaeda, and once called Osama bin Laden a “jewel in the crown of Islam”.

The Norwegian Supreme Court has declared him a threat to national security, but Norway cannot deport him because he faces a potential death sentence in his native Iraq.

        That’s what I do.

      How about shooting him, it’ll do more good.

      Stupid Norwegians are just hurting themselves. Send him back. Who cares if he faces the death penalty. My guess is that he deserves it.

    Send him farther north the pack ice seems a good location, send his ‘family’ along.

      I like that solution.

      No…then you’re sending them towards MY ancestral homeland and relatives, and all the White Privilege you see in the photo…

    I the excellent moves by the Norwegian government, naturally, leads us to discuss possible analogous moves by our own Canadian government. I research regional economic development issues here in the turnip patch of New Brunswick. And we are forever struggling to find regional development opportunities for rural areas, not just in the Maritimes, but for ANY rural area in Canada. And clearly, Canada s North does in fact need export development.

    So I propose that we start relocating radical Muslim preachers to our north. Not so much to the Yukon, but to the far-less-prosperous Northwest Territory and, in particular, Nunavut:

    One could argue that rabid, militants imams might be out of their depth, stuggling to survive in, say, Baffin Island. But no doubt they could survive on the generous welfare benfits of the Nunavut government. These brilliant imams could l

      Islam is not given to the tradition of meditating. It’s more of an “action” cult.

    Should fit right in. Trolls are Norwegian, aren’t they?

    They WANT to colonise everywhere.

    It is literally down the road from Trondheim; 100km, 90 minutes drive time. Trondheim is the 4th largest city and third largest urban area in Norway. Just whisper to him that there’s a 120 Jews in Trondheim and they have a synagogue and he’ll go full metal Islam.

  • It seems that Norway, like the rest of Scandinavia, resembles an isolated pocket of wildlife suddenly confronted by an invasive species of predator, against which they have evolved no defense.

    Don’t send any of these kind North…that’s my hide-out…

    So, he can’t be deported to Iraq because, “possibly”, he could “potentially” face the death penalty. Maybe the Norwegian government could “change the rules” and save the taxpayer’s the cost of a trial. And the upcoming lawsuit that no doubt will be filed if this “preacher” loses and ends up in that remote location.

    I assume the 2,500 people of Kyrksæterøra will not hold a welcome party for him if he is sent there.

    Send him to Svalbard. That’s even farther north and well removed from the mainland.

        hungry polar bears perchance?

    A new Devil’s Island located at the farthest northern point of Norway would be an ideal place for undesirables like this one.

    The west should not make safety decisions based on the possible results of legal action against someone in their home country. That’s the criminal’s problem. Our safety should come first.
