Terrorist Group Claims Responsibility For Norway Attack

by Ben Hoffman

OSLO — Powerful explosions shook central Oslo on Friday afternoon, blowing out the windows of several government buildings, including one housing the office of the Norwegian prime minister. The state television broadcaster, citing the police, said 7 people were killed and at least 15 injured; a spokeswoman for the prime minister, Jens Stoltenberg, said he was “safe and not hurt.”

Shortly after the explosions, which appeared to be a bomb attack, a man dressed as a police officer opened fire on a summer camp for young members of the governing Labor Party on the island of Utoya about 25 miles northwest of the city, and wounded at least five, a Norwegian security official said.

“The situation’s gone from bad to worse,” said Runar Kvernen, spokesman for the National Police Directorate under the Ministry of Justice and Police, adding that most of the children at the camp were 15 and 16 years old.

A terror group, Ansar al-Jihad al-Alami, or the Helpers of the Global Jihad, issued a statement claiming responsibility for the attack, according to Will McCants, a terrorism analyst at C.N.A., a research institute that studies terrorism. The message said the attack was a response to Norwegian forces’ presence in Afghanistan and to unspecified insults to the Prophet Muhammad. “We have warned since the Stockholm raid of more operations,” the group said, according to Mr. McCants’ translation, apparently referring to a bombing in Sweden in December 2010. “What you see is only the beginning, and there is more to come.” The claim could not be confirmed. It is not uncommon for terrorist groups to advance claims of responsibility for high-profile attacks, only to have the claims prove to be spurious.

  1. This is exactly what to expect. Show jihadhists your neck, one shouldn’t be surprised if they cut it. Radical Islam will never be appeased. Weakness only invites more attacks.

    The Norweigians have been nothing but kind to their Muslim population.

    Force is the only language these folks understand. America hasn’t been attacked since 9/11 because we took the fight to the enemy. I hope the Norweigians learn this lesson.

    • Force is the only language these folks understand.

      That’s probably what the Islamic fundamentalists tell each other. Muslim extremists and right-wing Christians have a lot in common.

      • While Christian fundamentalists sometimes make me cringe, I would never put them in the same bucket as radical jihadhists.

        They don’t routinely behead people and deliberately attack civilian targets. The OK City bombing is the only exeption I can think of. But examples of Islamic terrorism are legion.

      • Well, well, well… It turns out the terrorist was a right-wing Christian. And there are many more examples of Christian terrorism throughout history.

      • Fair enough. I’m surprised what seems to have been a lone wolf appears to have carried out an attack of such sophistication.

        I wonder if this whack job had any co-conspirators.

        Islamic groups must be getting so desperate that they are now claiming credit for other people’s attacks.

  2. Christians my ass! Christians dont go around blowing up people, fly planes into buildings and scream convert or die! No religious group does except muslims! Besides, Ansar al-Jihad al-Alami, or the Helpers of the Global Jihad, a MUSLIM group, issued a statement claiming responsibility for the attack!

    • Christians dont go around blowing up people

      Except of course with the OK City bombing and the bombing in Oslo, and the bombing of abortion clinics. But you’re right… Most of the time they use guns.

  3. I believe this is full scale wear against all Islamic terrorist groups – and the Christian fundamentalist groups also need to hold their own anger and let the Western government do justice to these Ilsamic terrorist

  4. All islamic Terrorist groups need to be outlawed, declared war on and those captured thrown into internment camps as with the Germans, Japanese and Italians in world war 2 939-45

  5. This was an action of a Christian Terrorist. I am aware of no direct information which demonstrates Muslim’s claimed responsibility other than hearsay from individuals who rely on “terrorism” to rake in hundreds of millions this sick country does not have. In 1 year more people are murdered in this 80% + Christian nation than Muslim “Terrorists” have killed in the last 5(or more?). Peanut Allergies/Bee Stings also kill a few times more than Muslim Terrorists on the average year. Then their is doctor neglect/criminal neglect(known as malpractice). The ignorance, arrogance or sheer stupidity of doctors(considering only the USA) slaughters more humans in 1-2 yrs than ‘Al-Q’ has killed in the last 10(including the 9/11).

    Flying as always is safer than driving. Statically speaking you are more likely to be raped & murdered by a Christian in the USA than a Muslim. Then when you go to jail for knocking their teeth out with a bat….. Statically speaking the man you share your room with(Cellie) will most likely be a Christian(or one of the sub classes) and not a Muslim.

  6. If NORWAY KILLER is CHRISTAIN then why a MUSLIM GROUP claiming responsibility. I smell a MUSLIM conspiracy

  7. Terror is becoming the norm in the world and there are groups that take responsibility to get publicity – it may or maynot be islamic but Islam will get the blame as they are in the media right at the moment and on top of peoples agenda johnsunol.blogspot.com.au
