Norway Islamist Says US “Hasn’t Learned Its Lesson” After 9-11… Calls For More Attacks

Mullah Krekar, whose real name is Fateh Najmeddin Faraj, has lived in Norway as a refugee since 1991, and has been under threat of deportation since Norwegian media revealed he was the founder of the Ansar al-Islam terror group.


Krekar studied jurisprudence in Pakistan under Abdullah Azzam, who was also a mentor to al-Qaeda leaders Usama bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri, and was of central importance in the development of al-Qaeda’s internationalist outlook.

An associate of Krekar’s, Aso Muhammad Hassan, had his identity card found on the hard drive of a computer abandoned by al-Qaeda in Iraq. Aso is a close colleague of Krekar, one of the founding members of Ansar al-Islam and its forerunner, Jund al-Islam. The IMK membership card was recovered from a captured al-Qaeda computer in 2001!

Norway Islamist Mullah Krekar called for more attacks on the United States in a recent MTV3 interview.
The Local reported, via Free Republic:

Norway’s Progress Party has called for the immediate arrest of Mullah Krekar after the firebrand jihadist spoke of the need for renewed terrorist attacks on the United States.

The Norway-based extremist made the comments in an interview with Finland’s MTV3. He also claimed that Islam “will control the entire world” within the next 20 years.

More than a decade on from the devastating terrorist attacks in the United States that left almost 3,000 people dead, Krekar said:

“They have learned nothing from the 9/11 attacks. That’s why they need two more attacks. It’s the only way the Americans will understand that we [Muslims] are people and not animals or slaves.”

Morten Ørsal Johansen, immigration policy spokesman for the populist Progress Party, said the remarks merited placing Krekar under arrest.

“We have just passed a new law stating that anybody who poses a threat to basic national interests may be subject to arrest. There’s no doubt that Krekar should now be apprehended,” he told newspaper VG.

Krekar, the co-founder of Islamist militant group Ansar al-Islam, moved to Norway as a refugee from northern Iraq in 1991.
