The Oslo "Jihadist Terrorist" Blame Game Begins

Tyler Durden's picture


The news of today's Norway bombing is still developing and already the Telegraph has started the blame game. The target? Why jihadists of course. And while there may be reason to assume this is the case, the fact that there are absolutely no known confirmed facts at this point allows us to be very grateful for the phenomenon of broad ethnic and racial stereotyping and profiling. Incidentally, according to preliminary reports, the description of the shooter at the Labor Party youth camp is 6 foot tall, and blond: last time we checked Libya didn't have an endogenous Aryan population.

From The Telegraph:

As of June 2011, there were still six F16 fighters from the Royal Norwegian Air Force operating in Libya, which is a possible motive for the attack. However, it is unlikely that Colonel Gadhafi has the ability to mobilise such an attack.

Norway has deployed around 500 troops in Afghanistan, and three Norwegian newspapers (Aftenposten, Dagbladet and Magazinet) published the controversial Prophet Muhammad cartoons in 2005-2006, providing another possible motive.

There is precedent for jihadist targeting of Norway, with public spaces, government offices and media targets most at risk.

One possible culprit is the Pakistan-based core al-Qaeda group, which has previously shown interest in attacking Norway. In July 2010, three Norwegian residents, one of whom had received explosives training with al-Qaeda in Pakistan, were arrested on suspicion of plotting attacks against unspecified targets. One of them had attempted to construct the same hydrogen peroxide-based explosives as used in the 2009 al-Qaeda bomb plot against the New York subway and the 7/7 bombings in London.

Nevertheless, Norway is not a priority country for jihadists, and any al-Qaeda targeting of Norway would probably be opportunistic, based on the fact that they had happened to recruit a Norwegian national. We also assess that any plans for spectacular attacks in Western Europe would probably have been altered or put on hold following bin Laden's death, pending internal security reviews. A further possibility, therefore, is that the attack was led by Norwegian jihadist sympathisers acting on their own initiative, possibly after receiving basic training from jihadist groups overseas.

The profiling continues:

This pattern was seen in Stockholm in December 2010, when Swedish citizen
Taimour Abdulwahab al-Abdaly blew himself up in a busy shopping street. He
had visited Iraq for jihad, but appeared to have received minimal, if any,
external training and guidance when planning the Stockholm attack. One
possible training provider would be Somalia's al-Shabab, which maintains
fundraising networks among Norway's Somali community and has proven
attractive as a destination for Swedish and Danish jihadist sympathisers,
though it has not so far shown interest in deploying its foreign fighters
back home to conduct attacks.

Of course, the most probably explanation: that this is merely a domestic operation with no "jihadists" at all, is presented last. Because bond, blue eyed terrorists don't really sell page views.

Hours later there was an summer camp youth conference of the ruling Labour
Party, which is being attended by current Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg.
The conference is taking place on the island of Utøya. The man apparently
infiltrated the conference on the pretence that he had been sent by the
police as a security measure in the wake of the Oslo explosions. As such, it
is likely he was ethnically Norwegian. This could indicate the involvement
of a far-right group rather than an Islamist group, though it is also the
case that the Labour Party would be a favourable target for Islamist groups
due to its role in authorising Norwegian military deployments in

So much for the speculation. How about next time the "punditry" at least waits to get its fact straight before starting out on yet another senseless stereotypical crusade which will certainly make it far more likely that just this  stereotype is precisely what is behind the next attack.

...running a surplus...

With a population of just over 4.5 million, this may have something to do with that surplus: Norway is the third largest oil exporter on Earth, and 8th largest producer.

This bomb may be the work of the Lutheran Brotherhood, a little know Norwegian resistance, recently founded in the wake of grass-roots revolutions in Tunesia, Algeria, Egypt, Yemen, Bahrain, Syria, Iran, and Libya.

We need to get NATO troops and Central Bankers on the ground immediately to seize those oil wells assist the Lutheran Brotherhood with democratic reform!

For all of those "God-fearing" Christians fighting for our freedom against those damned muslims, I got news for ya - "Jesus was a sandnigger"  Think about that one for a moment.  Blows your mind doesn't it?  Hard to reconsile one's hatred for a race in the name of Jesus while Jesus was probably of the race that we need to bomb for our freedom isn't it?  ISN'T IT?!?!?!?!!

Jesus was a Jew. St. Peter was a Jew.  St. Paul was a Jew.

Christians, Jews, and Muslims all worship the God of Abraham.

Palestinians are Israelis that didn't leave Israel, and Converted to Islam.  Many didn't, and they were NOT killed.  They were protected, as people of the Book.  You can witness this truth by the FACT that there were still Jews in Israel in the 1800's, after 1100 years of rule by their supposed "natural" enemies.

Arabs didn't become the enemies of Jews until the Zionists invaded Israel and crushed the rights of their long lost cousins.

Geez, a bit of history and some facts are urgently needed over here :

1) Mahomet himself killed all the jews (and also the christians) who didn't want to convert to Islam when he left Medina, so how can you pretend that jews and muslims are ennemies only since the creation of Israël ? Read the Quran if you don't believe me. This conflict is as old as Islam.

2) There were always jews in what we call today Israël and they were there long before the Arab invasion in the 7th century. The Arabs were the invaders.

3) Most of the people we call Palestinians came from different Arab lands after the creation of Israël. Arafat himself is an Egyptian. Before that there was no such thing as "a Palestinian nation or country' but rather unorganized muslim tribes like in Afghanistan that lived seperatly.

3) The people of the Book also called "dhimmi" status is a slave status. The non muslims are not free in a muslim society. They must obey to the muslims and pay heavy taxes and if they do not they are killed. Remember also that killing a dhimmi is not a crime according to the Quran and to Mahomet's own actions.

Well.. I'm glad you are here with the facts. So tell me, prior to 1948 who was living in what is now called Israel? Also, what was this place called before it was named Israel in 1948?

How many Jews have died at the hands of non-Muslims?

In your opinion, if an Indian tribe came to your state/county and claimed that a spirit gave them that land and they were entitled to live there and you had to move, would you protest or peacefully leave?

I thank you in advance for your informative and unbiased response..

As I already said, prior to 1948, Jews, Christians and Muslim tribes lived in what we call Israël today.

Jews are there since several milleniums, Christian since around 2000 years and Muslims 1400 years.

Also, what was this place called before it was named Israel in 1948?

The place was a part of Egypt. The word "Palestin" didn't exist prior 1948.


In your opinion, if an Indian tribe came to your state/county and claimed that a spirit gave them that land and they were entitled to live there and you had to move, would you protest or peacefully leave?

As a French, may I recommend you to ask this question to the 15 millions of african-muslims that are occupying my country right now and proclaming that my land is theirs since forever ?

your kingdom come,

on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts,

"The Bible is a wonderful book."

being a Muslim, we believe in that...but what we have been told/informed in Quran is:

Al Quran (Sura 3, Chapter Al E Imran): "Ibrahim was not a Jew, nor a Nazarene, but he was an upright Muslim, nor was he of the associators." (verse 67) And Al Quran (Sura 3, Chapter Al E Imran): "Say thou: we believe in Allah and in that which is sent down unto us, and that which was sent down unto Ibrahim and Ismail and Is-haq and Yaqub and the tribes, and that which was vouchsafed unto Musa and Isa and other prophets from their Lord: we differentiate not between any of them, and unto Him we are submistive."

This is even worst

Just cut and paste from a Swedish website: Aftonbladet!


Witness: Between 25 and 30 dead on the island

A person dressed as a police officer has fired several shots in Buskerud, Norway.

Youths who participated in a camp on the island, tried in panic to escape or hide.

Soon after 19 arrested a suspected shooter.

Several dead will be on the island, but rescuers could not go in until the island has been scanned in search of bombs.

- There are people lifeless along the beach. An estimated 25-30 of them, says Tore Bekkedal to Aftonbladet.

Norwegian Labour Party Youth League is currently camping in Buskerud, just outside Oslo. Approximately 560 young people participating in the camp.

On Friday afternoon, gunfire broke out in violent, when a person dressed as police began firing around him with an automatic weapon.

The fake police should have told me that he was on his way to the island to perform routine after the terrorist attack in Oslo.

- Suddenly, we heard a lot of shots. People had to run and hide. We have been told that we must leave the island, says a witness to VG.
Esbati jumped into the water to escape

Adolescents reported in a panic trying to hide to escape the shooter. Many must have jumped into the waters to try to swim to the mainland. One of them is Swedish Ali Esbati, Young Left, the former chairman.

- I have been shooting at Utøya. My phone is dead when I jumped into the water when the offender approached. I'm okay and am on a collection hotel now. Many are injured, possibly dead. But the perpetrator - a fair-haired man dressed as a police or security guards - must be taken now, he writes on Facebook.
Shooter arrested

Just after 19 o'clock the police arrested a suspected shooter. According to NRK, it is about a man with a Nordic look.

Police do not yet know how many people have been injured and killed when the person opened fire and shot wildly.

At 19:30 NRK reports that two girls with serious injuries.

- We have great reason to believe that the shooting is linked to the explosion in downtown Oslo earlier today, says Shem-Jackobsen to NRK.

- We look at it as a possibility, based on observations made and tips that have been received by the police, said national police chief Sveinung Sponheim.
Looking for bombs

Sveinung Sponheim, deputy police chief in Oslo, said the evening's press conference that they fear that there may also be bombs on the island.

Rescue team says to NRK that there will be several dead people on the island. But they must not enter the area until the bomb defense team has searched the island.

- There are people lifeless along the beach. An estimated 25-30 of them, says Tore Bekkedal to Aftonbladet.

At least four dead as witness

Party Secretary in Telemark AUF, Adrian Pracon said to that several people have been shot.

- From what I've seen at least four people shot and killed. Now it's full panic here, he says.

Kjetil Vevle, board member of the AUF, which is on the camp, twitter:

- We are well preserved. Awaiting the situation. New shoots now.

"It's extremely dramatic here"

Ali Esbati located on the island and tells Aftonbladet that the atmosphere is very chaotic.

- I saw a person who may have been shot through the mouth, he said.

- I've seen two people who were seemingly motionless.

According to the Swedish Social Democratic Youth League, there may be Swedes at the camp.

- It can be so bad that there are Swedish SSU are in place. We are currently investigating it in full swing right now, says Marcus industry, SSU's press secretary.

Many of the SSU is close friends with AUF's members, says Jytte Gute Country for TT.

- We feel a deep sympathy and many are worried, she says.

- We know from social media to AUF now focuses on providing security. They do not want to call and they asked themselves not to call.

Tore Bekkedal are at camp.

- There are five corpses outside the corridor. I'm in a cabinet with two others. It shot off, so I can not talk, he wrote to an acquaintance.

Stoltenberg were to camp

Bard Flaarønning wrote on Facebook: "A person who shoots wildly with arms'

Police have cordoned off the area, and Oslo police have been informed of the incident.

- We have received reports of a serious situation - if a critical situation on Utøya, said Jens Stoltenberg, the Norwegian TV 2.

Jens Stoltenberg himself would have given a speech at the camp tomorrow. Today, Gro Harlem Brundtland, speaking at the camp.

Utøya located just west of Oslo, in Tyrifjorden in Buskerud.

Just like Columbine.  "Authorities" had to wait (for the shooting to stop) for fear of bombs.   So you better have some heat to protect yourself - because the "authorities" will almost always wait until the shooting stops.

Ditto on the Texas Army base where the Muslim major could pick people off because they were all unarmed....on an Army base.  I guess only Muslim can carry guns on US Army bases.

Now that the official keeper of British public myths has spoken I can't wait for the USA to chime in. That would (of course) be the toilet paper of record, the NYTimes if case you are wondering. Second string is the Washington Post and the WSJ.

Wait a minute, I've been wondering why it's been pig pile time on Murdoch lately. Not that he doesn't deserve it, but when you see a feeding frenzy like we saw with Murdock, something deeper is going on. I wonder if Murdock needed to be shown the way to dry land? Or was it just a general warning to the MSM media to toe the line during the upcoming war mongering?

The pundits were already looking at the Libya angle when I last looked at the idiot box.


It could be anyone right now, most likely some pissed off al queda wannabes or local nutjobs. But there is some merit to the Israel angle. They are in dire straits on their energy issue ever since the arab spring kicked off, with Egypt now threatening to cancel their cozy relationship, and if you were in the same situation what better strategy than attacking Norway: The 3rd largest oil exporter in the world (with a strong public support for Palestinians), blaming it on the Muslims, and then offering the Norwegians what they tout to be the best intel in the world on Muslim fundamentalists in return for political support and oil? It's worked before & it should work this time as well unless they left some art students behind or they got greedy again and bought insurance on the entire block of destroyed buildings. We'll see. My bet is on locals - Norwegian nutjobs of various kinds - Christian/Muslim, but Mossad false flag works too. 



Anyway, it's a very sad state of affairs. Bombing and shootings all on the same day.

Geez Louise, Roddy, you beat me again with the correct answer!!!!!!!!!!!!

But seriously, this is obviously another Murdoch operation to redirect the attention away from the complete corrupting of Scotland Yard (goodbye Sherlockian scumbags!).

If attention weren't redirected away from the Murdochs (as in Rupert and James), people might realize that Rebakah Brooks testified that she was bribing the Special Police Directorate back in March of 2003; that one-fourth of Scotland Yard's press office is made up of former News of the World  employees; that several executives from Rupert Murdoch's company have contradicted him, and said they did indeed tell him about the phone hacking (ditto the law firm also notifying the Murdochs); that Murdoch's News Corporation has Viet Dinh, author of the USA PATRIOT Act, on their board of directors; that ChoicePoint hired Viet Dinh in 2003 to advise them on DHS contracts; that ChoicePoint was the same corporation which purged 91,000 Black-American voters from the Florida voter registration database, conveniently throwing that state's election to Bush in the 2000 presidential election; that in 2000, Richard Armitage was on ChoicePoint's board of directors, the very same Richard Armitage that revealed Valerie Plame's classified CIA identity, the very same Richard Armitage who was assistant secretary of state when they tried several times to overthrow Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, etc., etc., etc.

But just keeping watch Murdoch's Foxtard News for all the answers.....
