Blast In Oslo

Recommended Posts

There's been what looks like a bomb in Oslo. Conflicting reports about whether PM was hurt.

I wonder if this is related to the Jyllands-Posten Muhammad cartoons controversy.

It's probably as likely to be related to supporting the Euro after the latest bailout.

They are not in Europe (i.e. the EU) are they?

A 'local' I follow in google+ (yes I can send invites) is saying there have been 3 arrests at the airport related to this, and it was 2 exploded bombs they couldn't find in time.

Presumably there were other bombs they did then.

Anyway, they are pretty f**king big by the looks of the pictures he's been posting.

This thread will be removed if unsubstantiated statements of muslim involvement in this bomb attack continue. Several have already been removed.

If you have a link to a public domain article that directly links this attack with muslims then post it.

Personally don't think this doesn't have ought to do with the usual suspects.

Think it has something do with Norway internally. Have to wait and see though

http://theforeigner.no/pages/news/islamic-terrorist-organization-recruits-norwegian-somali-youths/

21st December, 2010

An anonymous informant in Gothenburg that broke away from Al-Shabaab tells NRK that members of the group recruit young Somalis living in Scandinavia.

“It happens in mosques, but Imams are not involved. Other, less visible people come to mosques to recruit youngsters who are vulnerable and easily-led.”

Last Saturday’s suicide bomb attack in the heart of Stockholm put the possibility of terror firmly on the Norwegian menu, according to the Police Security Service (PST). It suspects fundraising for the organization is taking place in Norwegian territory.

Janne Kristiansen, head of the PST, has previously warned that terror organizations in Somalia, Pakistan, and Afghanistan are recruiting Norwegian youths.

A quick google doesn't reveal any internal Norwegian Terror groups.

Unless this was a Tim McVeigh type of attack.

A tragedy and my heart goes out to the people affected. But do you think this will feature on the BBC news, or are they still running only one story.

I posted this on their comments section, there is a good chance they take it seriously, after all they basically ignore the Somalian famine.

Name: Otto Agber

Town: Oslo

Comment: Its panic over here. people are desperately concerned that someone might have listened to a voice mail message 5 years ago without the owners permission.

The fact a bomb has just gone off is not helping us focus on the BBC's relentless campaign.

In most cases a selection of your comments will be published, displaying your name as you provide it and location unless you state otherwise. But your contact details will never be published. When sending us pictures, video or eyewitness accounts at no time should you endanger yourself or others, take any unnecessary risks or infringe any laws.

Well whoever it was lets try not to blame everyone else from his/her/transgender skin colour/ethnic/cultural/religious background/football club/primary school/book club etc with unsubstantiated links to this that or the other speculated till the cows come home. The BBC news24 coverage has been like bored women chatting in a laundrette all afternoon, pathetic.

But who knows it could have been on Gadaffis orders. Norwegian NATO Secretary General Anders Rasmussen has been the face of the Libyan campaign, considering Gadaffis history when he wasn't under sustained attack i'm a little surprised he hasn't tried any reprisals yet.

Sorry, I don't understand

What does speculation about muslim involvement with the bombings have to do with race?

A bit from Auntie:

Police later confirmed a shooting incident at a Labour Party youth meeting near Oslo.

Unconfirmed reports said a man dressed as a police officer had opened fire indiscriminately.

It's all looking rather weird as well as horrible: which may well point to Gaddafi.

ED: Ah: Beeb again:

1739: AFP report police say Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg had been due to attend a rally of his Labour Party's youth section on the island of Utoya where a gunman reportedly opened fire earlier.

One of the best and worst devices ever invented is the memory-hole. It is tempting to use it, but really - the memory hole is as destructive as the siren's song.

you're looking a year ago to a story about a group only active in Somalia without an international agenda when on the front page is this http://theforeigner.no/pages/news/norwegian-antarctic-oil-claim-may-break-international-law/ How about some kind of eco freak green house gas hating penguin fancier? not strike you as plausible considering the explosion was outside the oil ministry?

It is thought the action, that occured at 15:26 this afternoon, was directed against the Ministry of Petroleum and Energy in Einar Gerhardsens plass, though this has not yet been confirmed.
http://theforeigner.no/pages/news/huge-bomb-explosion-rocks-oslo/
State Secretary Kristian Amundsen said Friday was a public holiday in Norway so the offices were not as busy as they might usually have been.
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-14252515

Quite possibly an eco-terrorist attack on the oil ministry building, sending a message on a closed day to minimise collateral damage.

I had a feeling left wingers were more dangerous than right wingers but nice to see it confirmed.

Yes, but it's violence in a good cause. So that's ok. Move on. NOW.

Tory Scum! Fatcha!

etc.

This is not a common misapprehension - this is the forum rule.

No derogatory comments against others, including slurs based on race, religion, gender, sexual preference, or political affiliation. No personal threats or harassment

Probably. Isn't freedom great. Magazinet must be very very pleased with themselves today.

There Al-Queda members were arrested on 8th July 2010, they were making Peroxide bombs for just such an attack, so I think the probability it is related..
