Mullah Krekar Gets Prison

Mullah Krekar.jpg(Oslo, Norway) Islamist founder of Ansar al-Islam, Mullah Krekar, has been sentenced to five years in prison in Norway for issuing death threats. Good.

An Oslo district court found the 55-year-old guilty on Monday of threatening the life of Erna Solberg, a former government minister who signed an order expelling Krekar in 2003 because he was considered a threat to national security, the Agence France Presse reported.

Krekar, who came to Norway as a refugee from Iraq with his family in 1991, and whose real name is Najmeddine Faraj Ahmad, was also found guilty of threatening three other Kurds living in Norway who had burned pages of the Qu’ran or insulted it in other ways.

An appeal is being prepared.

Update by Howie: Video of his departure.
