Extremist condemnation grows

Muslims in Norway denounce extremist Islamic views expressed by the group called the Prophet's Ummah.



Thee Yezen Al Obaide took the initiative for this Monday’s upcoming demonstration against the Islamic State (IS), their ideology and supporters.

Over a thousand people have clicked attending on the rally’s Facebook page.

Mr Al Obaide did not wish to come forward in the media, however. He claimed both he and the others behind creating the event have received unwanted attention, according to NRK.

Monday’s rally in capital Oslo comes following statements by the Prophet’s Ummah spokesperson Arslan Ubaydullah Maroof Hussain.

He told VG in an interview, Saturday, that he supports the Islamic State’s (IS) approach in Syria and Iraq.

Progress Party (FrP) deputy leader Per Sandberg called for Mr Hussain’s Norwegian citizenship to be revoked and for him to be expelled, Dagbladet reported.

The rally on Monday also comes less than one week since the release of a video by the Islamic state (IS) showing the beheading of American journalist James Foley.

Another Islamic extremist in Norway, Mohyeldeen Mohammad, has also posted the IS’ video of Mr Foley’s beheading on a closed Facebook group. He encouraged people to derive satisfaction from watching the footage.

The IS has abducted about 20 foreigners, with the most recent being nationals of Italy, Denmark and Japan, according to the Guardian.

Norway’s Police Security Service (PST) has expressed concern over Norwegian citizens being recruited to terrorist organisations in Syria.

They estimate that over 50 people have travelled from Norway to Syria to participate in Jihad so far, NRK reports.
