RationalWiki's 2020 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2021.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Donations so far: $2120Goal: $3500

Najmuddin Faraj Ahmad, better known as Mullah Krekar (1956–), is an Iraqi-born Kurdish Sunni cleric and the former head of Muslim terrorist group Ansar al-IslamWikipedia (see Abu Musab al-Zarqawi).[1]

Krekar came to Norway with his family in 1991 as a quota refugee, and was since imprisoned for making threats against public officials. Although he was supposed to be extradited to Iraq, because the likelihood of torture is high there, the order was suspended.

In July 2019, Krekar was sentenced to 12 years' prison by an Italian court for planning terror attacks. Italian prosecutors maintained Krekar led a terror group called Rawti Shax,Wikipedia with ties to ISIS.[2]
