Remember the multiple-murderer in Finland with the name we wondered about?

From Gateway Pundit we come to this:
And, at Origins of Islam, "Alleged Saudi sponsored UCK (Kosovo muslim terrorist org.) mass-murderer Ibrahim Shkupolli allegedly also murders at least five in Finland today."

Ibrahim Shkupolli is a UCK/KLA (Kosovo Liberation Army - i.e. muslim terrorists) veteran. He killed 32 Serb civilians in the Qela village in 1997. Also fought against Serb police. He is wanted in Serbia already since 1995.

That's a translation of Finnish website, and there's speculation this is an unfounded rumor (Serbian source is here, and a link from the comments). But if accurate, Shkupolli could very well have previous ties to Middle East terrorist networks. See, "German Intelligence and the CIA supported Al Qaeda sponsored Terrorists in Yugoslavia":

Both the CIA and German intelligence (BND) supported the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA), a terrorist organization with links to Al Qaeda...

They also note that the man was a known drug dealer; now I may be going out on a limb, but I rather think the Finns probably don't issue firearms licenses to known druggies, which would mean the firearms he used weren't exactly legally owned...

(Which won't stop the "We need more laws!" people, but then nothing would)

Yep, definitely not a legally owned gun. That was confirmed as soon as his name was confirmed. He had previous gun violations.

if you haven't already got a copy, download the third paper down (Would banning firearms reduce...")

and give copies to anyone you think might read it.

Firehand, thanks and apologies for spamming your blog

Keith, spreading information like this isn't spamming, it's informing.
