Norway PM quote on the attacks 24, July 2011

Needless to say, the events of yesterday in Oslo are profoundly shocking.

I’ve got nothing useful to add to the discussion or analysis on this topic other than to remind you, dear reader, to try to eschew the myriad of Scandinavian right-wing terror experts that will inevitably emerge in the coming days like Gremlins dunked in water.

I’ll end with this rather beautiful quote used by the Norwegian Prime Minister. Ordinarily, I’d mock such sentiments for being overly soppy or even mawkish, but on this occasion, I think that it’s apropos.

If one man can display so much hate, consider how much love we can create together.

I think another point to reflect on is that Islam was pointed to first (admittedly, I had the same too rational fear) and was called a terrorist attacks, once it was found out to be the work of a right wing fundamentalist nut it became a mass murder…
This is not to deny the respect the dead deserve, but if I had committed the atrocity, it would be taken much differently

A perfectly reasonable point, thanks for contributing it.
