You’d think this would be a disqualifying factor in his case, but I’ll wager it isn’t for the dhimmi Norwegians. From AFP, with thanks to Nicolei:
OSLO, June 9 (AFP) – 19h59 – Mullah Krekar, the founder of radical Islamist group Ansar al-Islam who is fighting an expulsion order from Norway, on Thursday reiterated his praise for Al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden, calling him “a jewel” of Islam, media reported.
“I do not deny that I have said that Osama bin Laden is a jewel among the imams of Islam. He is faithful to the religion,” Krekar told an Oslo court, Norwegian news agency NTB reported, as he tries to prove that he presents no threat to Norway.
Norwegian authorities decided in February 2003 to expel Krekar, whose real name is Fateh Najmeddin Faraj, due to national security concerns, but his deportation was suspended until the situation in Iraq improves.
