  • Terrorist Attack in Oslo, Norway

    Three hours ago a bomb went of in central Oslo with two confirmed casualties.
    Not long after that a man dressed as a police officer walks into a youth camp (summer camp) claiming he is there to investigate because of the explosion earlier. He then takes out an automatic rifle and opens fire, four people has been killed (not confirmed)

    http://news.blogs.cnn.com/2011/07/22...ted/?hpt=hp_t2

    Can't find a link in English for the shootings.
    The two incidents are not confirmed to be related.

    I have a friend who lives there, I hope she is ok.

    This stuff really gets to me, Hopefully there are no more people found dead.

    Oslo has been hit hard. Currently we don't know much about how many casualties there are, but it seems quite probable that the casualty number is considerable higher than the currently 7 (in Oslo center). The gunman at the youth camp (a political camp for the governing party) has been apprehended (alive it looks like). Rumors says that more than 25 kids have been killed out there. The Norwegian prime minister was supposed to speak at the camp, but he is unharmed.

    I am shocked beyond words, and we are very shaky.

      According to the BBC casualties are now at 11 dead. A man posing as a cop has been shot and arrested on the island where the shootings took place. He was, according to reports, "White, tall, with Blonde hair and spoke fluent Norwegian". Not sure why they felt that was relevant, after all in the Caucasus region the people are Islamic, yet they also exhibit the stereotypical physical characteristics of white people. I am of course assuming they mentioned this out of some sort of need to tell people it may not have been Islamic terrorist related.

            I am devastated by this horrible tragedy.
            84 dead on a tiny island, they did not stand a chance. Apparently he walked around the island executing one kid after another luring them out by saying something like "it is ok to come out I am here to save you".
            This man is pure evil!

            It just does not make any sense. Young people picked off just because they happened to be affiliated with a party he despised.
            In a war situation it is killed or be killed, but these kids were innocent and unarmed.
            Many of the people jumped into the water to swim to safety and this ******* monster shoots them dead.
            I feel sick to my stomach

            How can anyone do this?

                I am shocked. Just read about it on BBC... 84... And he apparently surrendered calmly... Very disturbed individual - perhaps he knew exactly what he was doing and planned on be apprehended.

                That's the scariest part, to me. He killed all those people and then put down his weapons. That's... scary.

                  Deepest condolences... and I am with Skud. To surrender shows a willingness to see out what he did... a clear concious.

                  If only inhumane treatment were allowed in obscene cases...

                        He is being brought to court right now. He had requested the proceedings to be open to the public and that he would be allowed to wear a "uniform". Thankfully the court decided to keep the proceedings behind closed doors.
                        This man lost his democratic right to get his voice heard when he fired the first shot.

                        I will not give him the satisfaction of listening to his arguments and justification of what he has done.

                        The maximum penalty in Norway for a crime is 21 years (lifetime), however he can be sentenced to "custody".
                        This means that he would after serving 21 years be up for a parole hearing of sorts where they decide if he is fit to join society again. What this would mean that is that his release could be indefinatly postponed and he would spend the rest of his life in jail.
                        I do not see any other outcome than this.
                        Unless somebody gets to him first, something that the police consider a possibility as they have a large number of police sweaping the area for explosives and armed members of the public.

                        I feel for my norwegian neighbors and every one affected by this.

                        I heard back from my friend who lives close to where the bomb went off, she is fine aswell as everybody she knows. She did however say that there were a lot of destruction and mass panic.

                            Re: Terrorist Attack in Oslo, Norway

                            Front page of the New York Times today:

                            Killings in Norway Spotlight Anti-Muslim Thought in U.S.

                            The man accused of the killing spree in Norway was deeply influenced by a small group of American bloggers and writers who have warned for years about the threat from Islam, lacing his 1,500-page manifesto with quotations from them, as well as copying multiple passages from the tract of the Unabomber.

                            In the document he posted online, Anders Behring Breivik, who is accused of bombing government buildings and killing scores of young people at a Labor Party camp, showed that he had closely followed the acrimonious American debate over Islam.

                            His manifesto, which denounced Norwegian politicians as failing to defend the country from Islamic influence, quoted Robert Spencer, who operates the Jihad Watch Web site, 64 times, and cited other Western writers who shared his view that Muslim immigrants pose a grave danger to Western culture.
                            Apparently, American right-wing anti-Muslim racist, xenophobic, hate and fear mongering can help to insight some to violence. This guy was one of those white racist nationalists, more so, just a pathetic and weak minded coward. He deserves absolutely no mercy.

                            Of course now, these worthless US ideological zealots are in full damage control over this.

                            The revelations about Mr. Breivik’s American influences exploded on the blogs over the weekend, putting Mr. Spencer and other self-described “counterjihad” activists on the defensive, as their critics suggested that their portrayal of Islam as a threat to the West indirectly fostered the crimes in Norway.
                            Can you outright and directly blame these anti-Muslim US folks for what Anders Behring Breivik did in Norway? No. But there are consequences for the words, hate, and fear you spread, even if incitement to violence wasn't your intended purpose.

                            Even before the 2010 mid-term election there was plenty of Islamophobia in the US, but far right Republicans and their minions - news organizations, bloggers, special interest groups, and especially FOX News - used the ground zero mosque and other Islamic related issues to there advantage to promote fear and hate mongering to help win their elections. This resulted in a much bigger following of hatred for Islam, an uncontrollable beast, really, manufactured for political purposes but now self perpetuating and unstoppable. Let's all give a special thanks to people like Newt Gingrich, and many others, who created this hate filled anti-Muslim monster that now casts a pretty dark shadow over the US, and has spread like a virus around the world.

                            It takes a lot of energy to hate other people and ethnic groups who are different than yourself - something I have no time, patience or tolerance for.

                              My prayers goes to Norway.

                              So apparently, a massacre by a Christian extremist makes him a madman, but a massacre by a Muslim makes him a terrorist.

                              This madman Anders Breivik risks 21 years in prison. That's three months for each life he ended. That is just sad.
