Norway's Iraqi headache-terrorist, Mullah Krekar, wants jihadis to flock to Mosul and fight alongside ISIS, reports Nettavisen.
Mullah Krekar has previously criticized the Islamic State, but he now says in an audio recording that other jihadist groups are obliged to defend the extremist group.
In the audio clip, posted on a Facebook group supporting the mullah, Krekar said that he has previously criticized IS, writes Dagen, but now he calls for Muslims to defend the Islamist extremist group that is currently fighting a battle for control over the Iraqi city of Mosul.
- I've said that obeying them is the duty of those who follow them, and defending them is a duty for Muslims who live under them and the Muslims living around them in these countries. Especially the other jihadist groups, says Krekar in the audio clip, according to the newspaper. It is not clear who he is referring to when he talks about jihadist groups, but most likely all of them.

Through his lawyer, Brynjar Meling, Krekar says to VG that the statement is not an expression of his own opinion, but expresses a salafist understanding of Islam. "He believes that if IS lose its position of power in the area, it will lead to mass murder of Muslims in these areas," says Meling.
