Cleric threatens Norway with 'punishment'
OSLO, Norway | September 07, 2005 11:12:08 AM IST
A Muslim cleric who faces deportation from Norway says that the country could be punished if he is forced out.
Mullah Krekar, in an interview with the al-Jazeera television network, said that sending him to Iraq would be an offense that shouldn't be made without punishment.
I have faith in Allah, he told al-Jazeera. I defend my rights in their court just like Western people defend their rights. I am patient like they are patient. But if my patience runs out, I will react like Orientals do.
The Iraqi-born Krekar, whose real name is Najmuddin Faraj Ahmad, and his family have been living in Norway since 1991. Krekar reportedly has made trips back to Iraq recently and helped found the Islamist group Ansar al-Islam.
In his interview, Krekar also attacked Erna Solberg, the Cabinet minister who signed a deportation order in 2003. He accused Solberg of risking his life to satisfy her adolescent political visions.
Muslim cleric says Islam will

OSLO, Norway (UPI) -- A controversial Muslim refugee in Norway predicts Islam will eventually triumph in what he calls the war between his religion and the West, reports Aftenposten.
Speaking to the Oslo newspaper, Mullah Krekar, who came from Iraq, said: \'We`re the ones who will change you. Just look at the development within Europe, where the number of Muslims is expanding like mosquitoes.
"Every western woman in the (European Union) is producing an average of 1.4 children. Every Muslim woman in the same countries (is) producing 3.5 children. By 2050, 30 percent of the population in Europe will be Muslim."
Krekar said the Islamic way of thinking will prove more powerful than that of the West, the report said. He said \'materialism, egoism and wildness\' has altered Christianity.
Krekar, who faces deportation after being deemed a threat to national security, was quoted as saying al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden is considered a terrorist only because he lacks his own state.
"Those who say Osama bin Laden is a terrorist are themselves killing our women and children," Krekar said.
