Friday Post

An explosion in Oslo killed seven people and shattered windows this morning in what is believed to be a terrorist attack. A youth camp on the island of Utoya was also hit when a man dressed in a police uniform opened fire. It is believed ten people have been killed:

So far 7 people are reported killed after the bomb explosion and 10 people are killed after the shooting at Utøya where the Labour Party's annual youth camp was being held.

Utøya is reported to be safe by the police forces and everyone at the island is evacuated. However there is still a search going on for a possible bomb planted on the island.

The government building is still being searched for bodies and the police reported that the search will continue till tomorrow morning.

The attacker caught at Utøya was spotted by the explosion area minutes before the explosion happened. He was dressed as a police officer both in Oslo and at Utøya, however the police reports that he is not and has never been a part of the police force in Norway. 

The ‘Helpers of Global Jihad’ group, of which al-Nasser is a member, made the claims in an email circular issued to various sources. The group does not appear to have any past history.

It is thought that the bombings are a belated response to Norwegian newspapers and magazines republishing cartoons of Mohammed originally published by Jyllands-Posten of Denmark.

British Prime Minister David Cameron said, “I was outraged to hear about the explosion in Oslo and attack on Utøya Island. My thoughts are with wounded and those who lost family.”

Knut Storberget, Norway’s Minister of Justice confirms this evening the arrested shooter, who is believed to have carried several guns, is a Norwegian.

Apparently, one of the topics discussed at the labour Party's youth camp was “Combating Xenophobia and Islamophobia.”



The latest.

Moving on.....

If advocacy groups decline to speak out on behalf of fairly prominent persons for "political reasons", they will soon drift into irrelevancy and the telling of  "retard" jokes will be a staple of every party and late-night talk show. Someone out there gets their jollies from emotionally battering three year olds with mental disabilities. It goes without saying that such a person is beyond pathetic. Shouldn't the voice for the voiceless speak up?

Is toska anything like duende? I'd really like to know.
