Global jihad alert: The Norway Post says that “Arabs have been recruited in Norway for war against the Americans in Iraq. This is the opinion of Italian police, who have been questioning Mullah Krekar in Norway, Aftenposten reports.
“Mullah Krekar was Monday questioned by Italian investigators in an Oslo court. Senior public prosecutor Erling Grimstad confirms that the questioning has taken place. The opinion of the investigators is that Krekar’s group Ansar al-Islam has cooperated with Al Qaida in recruiting arabs in Norway and other countries for fighting against the American forces in Iraq.
“Mullah Krekar said that he doubted that such recruiting has taken place, and he is 100 per cent sure that no one from Norway has travelled to Iraq. The newspaper Washington Post wrote Wednesday that the Italian investigators believe the terrorist organization Al Qaida and Ansar al-Islam cooperate on a network which recruits Arab volunteers for the fight against the US in Iraq.
“They believe this recruiting has been going on in both Italy, Germany, Spain and Norway.” (Thanks to Nicolei.)
