    Oh, that sounds about right then. But I mean... if you make death threats, of course you're gonna be looked into and probably have the law on you. Not that these people understand any of that.

    holy shit

    use a bomb outside of a prominent government building as a distraction to get an armed man onto an island full of the children of important/influential norwegians who are there on their summer holliday and start shooting....

    including disguises and planning it sounds like a james bond movie villain's plan.

    Yeah. Except with your friends instead of extras. It sucks.

    Also, not really the children of important norwegians, more like the children who are going to be important norwegians.

    Is it naive to hope they manage to take him alive? This could be a one man op if the car bomb was on a timer; if that's the case then there isn't going to be much closure to be had if he manages to kill himself.

    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.

    This is the first thing like it since WWII.

    This is the worst thing in 66 years.

    So no. None of this is a thing here.

    Dude, if the bombing is seriously linked to the shooting for that specific manner, it really is one of the few times I'll cave in and say that it is an act of evil. (Usually hate the phrase since people use it too much)

    A lot of Middle Easterners have immigrated to to country, as well as all the countries up there. Just the same as they've immigrated to France, for instance.

    I have a coworker from Sweden here, but his family originally moved there from Syria; and he talks about the discrimination between the Blonde-haired natives and the 'Blackheads'. From his accounts, the whole area is like that though, regardless of which specific country you're in.

    Dagbladet said the police advised everyone to evacuate the city center and avoid large gatherings. Could just be complying with this

    shit this is terrible, but it sounds like it's the work of an extremist individual or small group who have a problem with some political stance or decision made by the labour party that I'm not even going to pretend I have any idea about.

    Or at least the white natives feel like its a lot. European countries tend to be ethnically homogeneous (Norway is roughly 90% ethnically Norwegian, let alone those of other European backgrounds and that's not unusual) so what appears to a North American to be a normal immigration level seems like a flood.

    Can't blame them though, it's better to be safe than sorry.
