    Stories emerge of shooter's victims

    Though Anders Breivik's guilt has yet to be legally established, the 32-year-old Norwegian man and apparent right-wing extremist has admitted that he is responsible for the bombing that killed seven people in central Oslo and the subsequent shooting spree that killed at least 86 mostly young political activists at a summer camp on nearby Utoya Island.

    In the wake of the attack, various sources - including the prime minister, newspapers and public broadcaster NRK - have identified some of those whom Breivik has confessed to killing or wounding during his roughly 90-minute rampage on Utoya.

    Among the dead and missing are a 21-year-old rising star in the Labour Party's youth wing, a 45-year-old camp administrator known as "Mother Utoya" and a 51-year-old volunteer guard who tried to confront the shooter.

    Indeed, RIP. With all due respect and sympathy, I would like to know if he shot people randomly, or singled out Asians, or figured all his victims were Labor Party members, or what? I can understand why he blew up a government building. He was angry with the government and the party in charge of it, for the time being. But what I don't grasp is why he chose a youth camp as a target. Why????????? Why kids?????? I suspect that even Al Qaeda is more sensitive to world opinion than to do something like that. WHAT IN THE HELL WAS HE THINKING?????????????????
    NOTICE: I am not a troll, because what I write I believe, and I have no intention of derailing threads or manipulating human nature. I am not a terrorist, because I do not endorse the killing of innocent people, and I am not here to promote violence. I AM HERE ONLY TO EXPRESS MY PERSONAL OPINION AND ENJOY LIVELY DISCUSSION.

    Well it was at a labor party youth camp so im guessing they were all part of the labor party.

    I can understand why he blew up a government building.
    Sure he was angry at the gov but no right and no understanding to blow it up. There are better ways to get your opinion out or change a gov than the use of terrorism.

    He was angry with the government and the party in charge of it, for the time being. But what I don't grasp is why he chose a youth camp as a target. Why????????? Why kids??????

    Well, I guess if 9 years ago they took a stance contrary to the Israeli government, then it was OK...

    I wonder if Israelis accuse everyone of being anti-American when they criticize the American government.

    Calling for the destruction of Israel is only criticism? For real?

    Where did they do that? In 1971? Seriously, now we're going back that far to prove a group is anti-semitic. I bet if we dug back a little farther, you could dig up something anti-semitic written by a member of the Republican party -- does that mean the GOP is anti-semitic?

    Even if they are -- IT DOESN'T GIVE SOMEONE LICENSE TO BOMB OSLO AND SHOOT UP A SUMMER CAMP.

    apparently the AUF demand for an indictment comes in light of.....

    Kristin explained that this AUF demand for an indictment comes in light of "...$nbsp;killing of ambulance personnel, occasional destruction of civil targets and the illegal execution of civilians".

    the link is broken. can you supply a link that shows exactly what the AUF are critical of. kinda difficult to condemn the AUF without knowing what exactly they were talking about isn't it?

    please supply the full transcript of this quote from your link. i have been unable to find it via a search.

    As young AUF members, future central Norwegian Labor Party leaders, called in 1971 for the destruction of Israel: "The qualification for lasting peace must be that Israel cease to exist as a Jewish state". (As quoted by Haakon Lie, former Secretary General of the Norwegian Labor Party, in his book: Slik Jeg Ser Det - As I See It - part II, p. 132.)

    Yes, and if you support Israel's right to exist, it's only because the Israeli government is paying you.

    You can't find it? You just quoted it.
