Norway’s Open Door Policy for Jihadis
The leader of the Pakistani Al Qaeda-linked terror gang Jamaat-e-Islami, Qazi Hussain Ahmed, has been granted permission to visit Norway, even though he is banned from normally jihad-friendly Belgium and the Netherlands. The tiny minority of religious extremists in Norway let out an “enormous cheer” at the news. (Hat tip: Norwegian kafir.)
There was an enormous cheer at Islamic Cultural Center when they were informed that Qazi Husssain Ahmed was granted permission to visit Norway.
Islamic Cultural Center invited the controversial Pakistani politician to Norway, and the decision to grant him entry arrived only days before his scheduled arrival.
Ahmed arrives at Gardermoen International Airport on Saturday, but Minister of Local Government Erna Solberg waited until Thursday afternoon before she announced that Norway opposes the Schengen decision and grants him permission to visit.
In spite of the delay, the management of Islamic Cultural Center said they never lost faith that Norway would grant Ahmed entry.
“Norway is a democracy, and everybody is allowed to state their opinion,” said Ikhlaq Ahmad, general secretary at Islamic Cultural Center to TV 2 Nettavisen. “Everybody is very happy, and we are very proud to live in Norway. We live in a free society.”
Minutes after the decision was announced, ICC got in contact with its guest and relay the news.
“This is really great,” said the general secretary at ICC to TV 2 Nettavisen. “We thank the Norwegian people and the authorities for this decision. It is a victory for the freedom of speech and for peace. Now Ahmed can visit Norway and talk about peace in the world and start a dialogue.”
To demonstrate his commitment to dialogue and peace, perhaps Qazi Hussain Ahmed can reprise his 2003 speech: Suicide bombers are the real Ummah.
LAHORE: “Suicide bombers represent the real Ummah,” Jamaat-e-Islami chief Qazi Hussain Ahmed declared in his presidential address at the launch of the Urdu translation of Malaysian Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohammed’s book ‘A new deal for Asia’ on Sunday at a local hotel.
The JI chief said the Ummah was not represented by kings and dictators, but was ‘in the heart beat of every Muslim’. “The Ummah are the people who sacrifice their lives,” he said.
Mr Ahmed said the Ummah was the ‘source of life’ for Muslims and this is why they would not accept ‘American dictators and oppressors’.
