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
Afghanistan.

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!

Not sure what "Lutheran Brotherhood" you are referring to, but this URL doesn't seem to go to a terrorist group:

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?!?!?!?!!

Facts:

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

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

Read this book:

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.

Léonard's picture

 

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..

Léonard's picture

 

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.

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 ?

I'm probably missing something here.  Since when are Christians worshiping a man who was a war criminal ?

hedgeless_horseman's picture

God / Jehovah / Yahweh / Elohim / Allah / I Am / God The Father was a war criminal? 

This I gotta hear.  Please explain.

Léonard's picture

 

I don't know about Allah/Hubaal the Mesopotamian moon God but his modern prophet Mahomet was a war criminal for sure.

You know he shouldn't have pride himself on all his crimes in the Quran. The dhimmies can read too.

hedgeless_horseman's picture

Muslims worship Allah, the God of Abraham, not Mahomet.

Jews worship Elohim, the God of Abraham, not any of the Torah's prophets.

Christians worship The Father, the God of Abraham, and His Encarnate Son Jesus Christ, and The Holy Spirit, as Three In One, The Holy Trinity, and not any of the Bible's prophets.

Léonard's picture

 

Christians are worshipping Jesus Christ, not the God of Abraham and not Allah the Moon God.

In Matthew 6:9-13 Jesus says,

“This, then, is how you should pray:

Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from the evil one."

Thanks but I won't pray. I'm Catholic by culture but an atheist by nature.

Jesus was a Jew. (All four Gospels)

St. Peter was a Jew.  (All four Gospels)

St. Paul was a Jew. (Acts of the Apostles)

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

The Bible is a wonderful book. You should consider reading it.

Léonard's picture

The muslims are worshipping Hubaal the ancient mesopotamian Moon God aka Allah. He has nothing to do with the God of Abraham.

People should better read the Quran, the Sunna and where Islam came from instead of listenning in this never ending "Islam is nothing but a religion of peace and love" propaganda.

Thanks but I won't read this American "dear Europeans, we are all the same, muslims are your friends, let them come in your land" propaganda type. We knew Islam and arabs long before the US existed.

when was the last time you read the Quran...and would you mind giving us some references????

 

You surely have NO idea and knowledge about Islam and Quran.

You're right, Salmon. Without actually reading the Koran and Haddith (at least a few of them), they are simply spouting ungrounded crap.

Peace and love my literate ass.

salman's picture

"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." (verse 84)

No it isn't.
