    Oslo was attacked earlier this afternoon with a car bomb in the Government Quarter.

    Currently two are confirmed dead. The bad weather that came today may have prevented more from being the blast zone.

    "NRK is reporting that an unknown group called "Helpers of the Global Jihad" have posted a message that this is only the beginning of the reaction to Norwegian periodicals publishing the Muhammed cartoons, according to Andrew Boyle, a journalist in Norway."

    "A terror group, Ansar al-Jihad al-Alami, or the Helpers of the Global Jihad, issued a statement claiming responsibility for the attack, according to Will McCants, a terrorism analyst at C.N.A., a research institute that studies terrorism. The message said the attack was a response to Norwegian forces’ presence in Afghanistan and to unspecified insults to the Prophet Muhammad. “We have warned since the Stockholm raid of more operations,” the group said, according to Mr. McCants’ translation, apparently referring to a bombing in Sweden in December 2010. “What you see is only the beginning, and there is more to come.”"-----http://www.nytimes.com/2011/07/23/world/europe/23oslo.html?_r=2&hp

    southbeach1500 saidI am vacationing in the Bahamas today with a friend who lives in Oslo - he's shocked that something like this would happen here.


    That's stupid, terrorism can happen anywhere

    This is proof that no where is safe icon_sad.gif

    Look at the bright side - Oslo isn't that important.

    Except that the perpetrator was a Norwegian national, right-wing extremist who opposed multiculturalism.

    Looks like this is Oklahoma City for Norway rather than 9/11.

    Come on now...."God" told him banging a 9 yo was a-okay (just no homo is all.) And he did make an honest toddler out of her when he did marry her years later, which --after all-- makes it not premarital, pedofilic rape. So it's all good, right?


    Welllll, when you put it like that...

    That particular "prophet" did exercise such enormous restraint in waiting three years to consummate his "marriage" to the little girl.

    Married at six, and deflowered at nine. Ick.

    Back to the real suspect:
    s-ANDERS-BEHRING-BREIVIK-large.jpg

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/07/22/anders-behring-breivik-id_n_907513.htmlNorwegian TV2 reports that Breivik belongs to "ring[sic]-wing circles" in Oslo. Swedish news site Expressen adds that he has been known to write to right-wing forums in Norway, is a self-described nationalist and has also written a number of posts critical of Islam.

    A Twitter account for Breivik has surfaced, though it only has one post, this quote from philosopher John Stuart Mill: "One person with a belief is equal to the force of 100 000 who have only interests." The tweet was posted on July 17.

    On a Facebook account that Norwegian media outlets have attributed to Breivik, he describes himself as having Christian, conservative views. He says he enjoys hunting, the games World of Warcraft and Modern Warfare 2, and lives in Oslo. He also lists political analysis and stock analysis as interests.

    Funny how the extreme right ends up being terrorism itself.

    Wrong: Antarctica. There are no Muslim extremists or anti-Muslim extremists there. Just scientists, penguins, and bears.

    Wow, it could very well be that this guy was acting on his own. Why would the muslim terrorist group claim responsibility then? I guess we'll have to wait and see.

    There's no evidence this guy was extreme rightwing at all, that's pure conjecture.

    Why would you have so quickly jumped to that conclusion in your previous post? Your hastiness made you look foolish.

    It's one thing to suspect AQ / AQ-related groups initially and another to insist on their culpability in the face of evidence to the contrary.

    According to newer information, the attacker is a self-styled nationalist who fears internationalism and the movement toward a pluralistic society.

    Newer information also tells us that while only 7 have thus far died of the Oslo bombing, over 80 youths were killed in the Utøya massacre (the second stage of yesterday's attack).
