  The West is too blind and stupid to take the terrorists at their word
Aftenposten Norway, Norwegian news in English: "'I have faith in Allah,' Krekar told Al-Jazeera in the text of the interview dated August 31. 'I defend my rights in their court just like Western people defend their rights. I am patient like they are patient. But if my patience runs out, I will react like Orientals do.'

Asked how 'Orientals' react, Krekar said: 'I don't want to comment on that.'

Allah's pardon
In the interview, Krekar also seemed to attack Solberg personally. 'How can a politician play with my life to satisfy her adolescent political visions,' he asked.

Krekar also spoke positively about suspected terrorist leader Osama bin Laden and developments in the Muslim world. 'The whole world must see that Jihad... is increasing in its scope with Allah's pardon,' he said. 'This trend represents solidarity in the Muslim community.'

He added that he thinks 'Jihadists' won't ease up 'until they see Islam's house equipped with Saladins sable, Mohammed's conquering turban and Osama bin Laden's vision.' He thus combined three important symbols used by Islamic extremists.

Remarks downplayed
Krekar's Norwegian defense attorney Brynjar Meling downplayed the significance of Krekar's claims in the Al-Jazeera interview, saying they didn't amount to threats and contained nothing new. He declined further comment, though, until he had conferred with his client."
