"The only thing that occurred to me was that he targeted the Marxist cabal that is pushing multiculturalism in order to destroy Western Civilization and institute totalitarian control. This place was the summer camp of the socialist party establishment.
His manifesto is not a "rant." It is an entirely lucid, logical, orderly, researched and positively scholarly exposition of the history of Islamic brutality, social dysfunction, mass murder and genocide. I have not read it all, of course, and probably never will but that much stands out boldly on every page. If it were written by a big-time university professor, it would be taken to be authoritative. It would be vilified, of course, b/c it is so NOT PC and all, but authoritative. No one would even try to confront it. They would just shout it down, like Joan Peters' From Time Immemorial. It would change the mood and tenor of the presentation of multiculturalism. It would be the ever present elephant in the room. Peruse it and you will see. It is no rant.
Another interesting question: perusing it, more or less at random, there seems to be nothing in it about doing anything like what he did. Bringing up the Crusades in the 12-minute video, and the way it is presented, clearly contemplates civil war to eject the Muslims from Europe, it is true. But an armed attack on teenagers at camp, murdering them face to face or as they fled, over an extended period of an hour and a half? That seems stunningly out of the blue.)"
"It is with consternation that we have received the dramatic news of an awful terrorist attack against a summer camp ran by our comrades of Norwegian Labor Youth 'AUF,'" the statement said.
The Fatah Youth group had taken part in the summer camp in the past on the Island of Utoya, near Oslo, where over 90 people were reportedly killed in a shooting spree on the Island and a bomb attack in Oslo on Friday, news reports said.
"Fatah Youth declares its consternation about the terror attack. There are no words to describe an attack against people that have been our comrades in our struggle for freedom and independence. Very few people have stood by our side as much as the Norwegian people, and particularly our AUF comrades."
"We know those who have been cowardly assassinated. Those are people that have stood for the human and national rights of the Palestinian people both in Europe and while visiting Palestine.
"Fatah Youth has participated for almost 15 years in the same summer camp and our youth has benefited by learning and sharing experiences on democracy and advocacy for peace and justice.
"We hope that those responsible for this criminal terror attack will be brought to justice. Such sick minds should not have a place in any society.
"As a people that has been victim of state terror for the last 64 years, the Palestinian people and particularly Fatah Youth presents its condolences to the families of those killed and sends a strong message of support to our comrades from the Norwegian AUF as well as from other sister parties that were participating in this summer camp," the statement concluded.
Envoy contrasts terror in Israel, Norway
July 26, 2011 JERUSALEM (JTA) -- Norway's ambassador to Israel drew distinctions between the Oslo and Utoya massacres and Palestinian terrorism.
Svein Sevje said in an Israeli newspaper interview Tuesday that while the Norwergian bomb and gun rampages that killed 76 people and Palestinian attacks should both be considered morally unacceptable, he wanted to "outline the similarity and the difference in the two cases."
Palestinians, the ambassador told Maariv, "are doing this because of a defined goal that is related to the Israeli occupation. There are elements of revenge against Israel and hatred of Israel. To this you can add the religious element to their actions."
"In the case of the terror attack in Norway, the murderer had an ideology that says that Norway, particularly the Labor Party, is forgoing Norwegian culture," Sevje said, referring to suspect Anders Breivik, a Christian nativist who is opently anti-Islam and anti-immigration.
Unlike European Union states, Norway has engaged Hamas and often been fiercely critical of Israel, to Jerusalem's dismay.
While Sevje voiced sympathy for Israeli terror victims, having experienced "the inferno" of such attacks during his posting, he saw little chance of Norway reviewing its Middle East policies.
"We Norwegians consider the occupation to be the cause of the terror against Israel," he said. "Those who believe this will not change their mind because of the attack in Oslo."
He added, "Can Israel and the Palestinians solve the problems without Hamas? I don't think so."
