Norway to block 'preachers of hate'
Norway’s Ministry of Justice announced on Wednesday that it would take a hard look at rules regulating the entry and residency of so-called ‘hate preachers’.Radical Islamists should be banned from entry into any country. They spread their disease among followers who then go on to commit hate crimes and in some cases mass murder. They turn mosques into terrorist havens and weapons storage facilities such as those shut down by France.
Integration Minister Sylvi Listhaug told Aftenposten that ministry officials would review the regulations for residence permits issued to imams, religious leaders and preachers.
The move comes after Aftenposten reported on Monday that the Salafist organization Islam Net invited several highly controversial preachers to its annual conference last month.
“It is unacceptable that religious organizations in Norway invite people to Norway who undermine Norwegian values,” Listhaug said.
The minister said that while she believes in the right to express one’s opinions, she wants to thwart the emergence of radical religious groups in Norway that advocate what she called antisocial viewpoints.
