Islamist Held for Offering to ‘Guard’ Norwegian Jews With AK-47

By: JTA

Norwegian police have increased security around Oslo’s main synagogue after an Islamist extremist threatened to “protect” the Jewish community with an “AK-47 assault rifle and a hunting permit.”

Police on Oct. 27 recommended indicting Ubaydullah Hussain, the 27-year-old leader of the radical Islamic organization Profetens Ummah. He was arrested last week after Norwegian media reported on a comment that appeared on his Facebook account:  “I will give them protection … as soon as I have received a hunting license and get hold of an AK47.”

Hussain, a former soccer referee who was born and raised in Norway, also lamented the absence of fatalities in a 2006 shooting outside the synagogue. Hussain, who participated in recent protests outside the U.S. embassy in Norway in connection with the film “The Innocence of Muslims,” later told Norwegian television he “could not confirm or deny” that his statements were a threat.

The comment was made in reaction to an interview with Ervin Kohn, head of Norway’s Jewish community, which recently appeared in the daily VG newspaper. Kohn said police were not providing protection outside the synagogue on Oslo’s Hanshaugen Street during services and were not proactive enough in their approach.

“We felt like we had been neglected, and this made us uneasy in light of what happened in Toulouse and in Malmo,” Kohn told JTA

In March, Mohammed Merah, a radical Islamist, killed three children and a rabbi in a Jewish school in the French city of Toulouse. Last month, an explosive charge was detonated outside the only synagogue in the Swedish city of Malmo.

Kohn said that since last week, there has been police protection outside the main synagogue of Oslo, the capital city, which is home to most members of Norway’s Jewish community of approximately 700.

  1. Anytime someone should make a threat of violence against a group, it must be taken seriously and prompt action taken as it was in Norway.

    I find it interesting that here, in Lynnwood, WA (USA), one person sent an e-mail to a local Mosque saying, "Get the F… out of here before more bombs go off!".

    The Lynnwood Police limited themselves to a polite inquiry as to whether the man sending the e-mail meant it, while the FBI said that it was difficult to construe this as a threat because the man did not directly say, "I am going to bomb you". This and other simliar incidents and the responses that we are aware of, appear to inform us that much greater tolerance is exercised when the perpetrator is not Muslim, but the victim is.

  2. The Jewish population of Norway is around 1,500, so I imagine it'll dwindle pretty quickly. Which is a shame because the Jews are a creative and good people. On the other hand the Muslim population of Norway is 120,000 and RISING so it should be fun to see what they have to offer Norway in the Jew's place…lol.

    I think you are very much mistaken. First you left off that this was on the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks in DC and NYC. These calls were after the second 9/11 attack on Americans, and the police were very busy. There had never been any other threats against the mosque, according to the mosque and there was no violence. There are constantly calls threatening Jews and the US Military in Snohomish though. Have you considered honesty?
