A man disguised as a police officer began shooting where youth were attending a Labour party conference at Utoya, Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg has just confirmed.
Note to Norway: You're sucking up to the wrong side.
Prayers up for all the victims in Oslo and at the youth camp.
Interesting backstory(s) from your posts. Now someone on BBC saying police theory is a lone crazy..
News conference coming up at 11 PM local time.
Oh dear God..this is just horrible. I haven’t had the TV on today and just found out. I hope the Norwegians come out swinging!
Well, considering Norway has been bending over backwards to accomodate Islamism, I’m starting to wonder about the right-wing wacko theory, or maybe Islamists pretending to be right-wing wackos.
A terrorism expert tells the BBC that Ansar al-Jihad al-Alami, or the Helpers of the Global Jihad, a terror group that claimed responsibility for the explosion in Oslo, was not behind the attack
Obviously it’s possible this is the work of a demented lone person- we’ve had those here too. It’s just as possible to be a jihadist. Either way- they’re crazy.
Okaaaay, just how in peridition does the guy know that, I wonder?!
But- then again- we have another choice from Hot Air:
A Norwegian police statement described those arrested as Person 1, a Chinese Uighur that came to Norway in the late 1990s as a refugee who was granted citizenship in 2007. Person 2 is an Iraqi Kurd arriving in the late 1990s and holding Norwegian permanent residence status. And Person 3 is an Uzbek asylum seeker in the early 2000s who was later granted permanent residence. All three are in their 30s.

I hope the Norwegians come out swinging!I dare the prediction that Norway’s socialist government will react by importing more Muslims.
Just woke up and I see all of this. Wow.
A pity if that happens. I guess the Norwegians have lost the ole ‘Viking Spirit’ after being under socialist rule all of these years.
I happened to watch the movie “Unknown” last evening and the gist of this movie was that the terrorist bombing was made to look like one thing when in fact it was about something else to fool the public, and create intended collateral damage and take the blame away from others.
We need to become cynical instead of sheep. Who benefits? and what are motivations? As in the movie I’ve come to the belief that these acts are never about what they first seem to be on the surface. Some acts create potential profit and actions and political reactions. There are many potential evil people in this world that have big time ambitions and desire for profits and to create opinions and victims.
I’m not convinced we know diddly squat about the machinations of evil, ambitious countries, groups and corrupt politicians and others except what they want us to believe.
Mark Steyn today said that Norway had expelled one of the top muzzies and he threatened to retaliate. There’s also the stupid cartoon thingy which began in Norway.
“We should get that ridiculous black box in the middle of Mecca:”
I couldn’t agree more. Every act of terrorism should be met with a retaliatory strike at one of their ‘holy’ sites.
