Let’s see. The man wants to go join the perpetrators of the Beslan atrocities. Slimane Hadj Abderrahmane also said that the Danish PM and foreign minister were “legitimate Muslim targets.” I’d say it’s a good thing that he thinks there is “no room” for him in Denmark. From the Copenhagen Post, with thanks to Ali Dashti:
Former Guantanamo prisoner Slimane Hadj Abderrahmane announced yesterday that he has dropped plans to sue the US government and will quit Denmark for Chechnya to aid Muslim insurgents in the country.
In response, Conservative Party justice spokesman Helge Adam MÃ¸ller has urged authorities to jail Abderrahmane.
“He’s a terrorist,” Helge Adam MÃ¸ller told TV2 news. “He wants to go someplace where he can kill women and children.”
Slimane Hadj Abderrahmane told DR News Magazine on Wednesday evening that he had decided against suing the US government for his two-year detainment at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
Sounds like a good decision, given his other statements.
Although Abderrahmane signed an agreement with the US barring him from engaging in jihad ever again, the Danish-Algerian citizen is prepared to leave Denmark in favour of Chechnya.
An agreement with the US barring him from engaging in jihad! What a great idea! Let’s make them all sign such forms. Men who glory in the deaths of little children will certainly honor a signed agreement!
“Lots of Danes are ready to hang me – a million and a half want me jailed for life, and the rest want me deported,” said Abderrahmane, who told DR that he was abandoning his lawsuit against the US government because he had no chance of winning.
“Western democracy has no room for people who think differently. There’s no room for me here in Denmark, so I’m going to war in Chechnya, where I can support Muslims and be of some use, ” said Abderrahmane.
The Security Intelligence Service (PET) is considering further action following Abderrahmane’s threat to move to Chechnya.
