    Re: Explosions In Norway

    New updates via Al Jazerra and Scandinavian news media.

    The shooter was seen near the bombing site. The attack on the island happened 2 hours after the bombing and it takes a hour or so from Oslo to the island by car and boat. Reports are coming that this is looking more like a lone nutjob than a islamic terrorist attack. Only "odd" thing is the size and sophistication of the bomb itself but we shall see when the police start releasing facts rather than titbits and leaking information.

    Why is it that the right always jumps to conclusions? The Spanish conservatives did that on the Madrid bombings for example.. why? They blamed ETA before they had the facts and look where that went..

    Fact is, based on the information we presently have and provided that the shootings on the island and the bombs are linked (which the police say they are), then it does not look as an islamic extremist attack unless the blond haired guy they have in custody is the first "western" looking Al Q terrorist sympathiser.. it could be, but more likely not.

    And reports from the Swedish news wires is they have identified the shooter on the island and he is talking. Guess we will know soon what is what.
    There have been many as you call them western looking islamic extremist. Jihad Jamie (white chick) John Walker Lindh (white dude) there have been many other converts to the religion of peace who have become radicalized.

    No there have been very few. Just because you can name two does not mean they are all over the place. The chance that a white bomber is a Islamic extremist is still very small compared to the person being a wackjob or a left/right wing radical.

    Nope and no information about his religion. The minister said he did not want to say more and leave that to the investigating police to come out with more information. And dont get your hopes up about information about his religion, not the tradition in Scandinavia to mention that at all.

    Well then you are not well informed. Swedish and Danish intelligence services have foiled quite a number of attacks over the last 30+ years and sadly a few attacks were carried out including the assassination of a Swedish Prime Minister. There was a bomb attack in Copenhagen in the 1980s, and of course the attack on the Mohammed cartoon guy only last year or so. But far from all were related to Islamic terror, although a large part were. Neo nazi, right wing extremists, left wing eco nuts and so on have also tried over the years.

    A group calling itself, "The Helpers of Global Jihad".

    "Global Jihad" group says it's behind Oslo blast - CBS News Investigates - CBS News

    I'm sure they're not Muslims, though. More than likely the militant wing of The Provisional Amish Army, headquartered in Scranton, Pennsylvania.
