Thread: ANTI-IMMIGRANT NEO-NAZI ON A MURDER SPREE

  1. #1

    If there were a peace capital of the world, it would be Norway.

    But the tranquil homeland of the Nobel Peace Prize, the Oslo accords and numerous peacekeeping missions was shattered Friday by two deadly daylight attacks aimed at its political heart.

    They left behind more than 80 dead, dozens wounded — and a shell shocked public unable to come to grips with what happened in a country more accustomed to dealing with others’ conflicts than their own.

    Why Norway? And why now?

    At the start, the trail seemed to veer in different directions that puzzled both citizens and veteran terrorism experts.

    But late Friday, a Norwegian police official told reporters that the Oslo bombing and the shooting spree aimed at the youth camp of the ruling Labour Party were “not linked to any international terrorist organizations” and had more in common with the Oklahoma City bombing in the United States. He said the investigation was ongoing.

    A security expert, Thomas Hegghammer, told the Star it appears “the gunman was a right-wing extremist” who possibly acted alone.

    Earlier, police said the gunman arrested on the island of Utoya after the violent onslaught was a Norwegian, described by witnesses as tall, blond and Nordic in appearance.

    In a country with a security policy so relaxed that even the Royal Family moves about quite freely, the idea of an enemy within was doubly shocking.

    Suspicion had quickly fallen on Islamist groups who had carried out spectacular attacks in Spain and Britain, as well as an attempted suicide bombing of Stockholm and a foiled attack on Finland.

    The car bomb, planted in Oslo’s central government district, took place near the prime minister’s office and the headquarters of a large tabloid newspaper. And a terror group calling itself Ansar al-Jihad al-Alami, or Helpers of the Global Jihad, quickly claimed responsibility on the Internet.

    The group’s leader had made threats earlier on electronic forums, saying Norway should pull its 500 troops out of Afghanistan, and had insulted the Prophet Mohammed. In 2006, at least one Norwegian newspaper had reprinted a provocative series of cartoons of the prophet, sparking outrage in parts of the Muslim world.

    But the group’s apparent leader, Abu Suleiman al-Nasser — an Iraq-based Islamist with Al Qaeda links — later denied any involvement with the blast, and insisted his group had nothing to do with it.

    Suspicion also fell on an Iraqi Kurdish extremist, Mullah Krekar, former leader of the relatively inactive Ansar Al Islam, who was placed under house arrest on suspicion of masterminding an earlier failed plot. He had issued threats against Norway if he was deported.

    The gun attack on the political camp increased fears of a highly organized Islamist assault, of the kind seen in New Delhi in 2005, and on the London transit system.

    “After Osama bin Laden’s death we saw many threats on the forums and social media,” said Michel Najm of the Middle East Observatory, a terrorism and security consultancy. “Lots of names were thrown out as targets. This was not a lone wolf operation.”

    But if not jihadists, then who would have carried out such massive assaults on tranquil Norway?

    “There are white supremacist groups, but they go out bashing people, and they aren’t that smart,” said terrorism expert Marc Sageman, author of Leaderless Jihad. “On a scale of terrorists, they’re in negative territory.”

    The fact that the man who infiltrated the youth camp — which was to be attended by Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg — was ethnically Norwegian could point the finger at far right groups, said Anna Murison, a jihad expert at Exclusive Analysis, in the Daily Telegraph.

    There are at least a dozen such groups, including the neo-Nazi Vigrid, which vows to save the white race from “extinction” brought on by immigration. But although it has been classed as violent, its members have not gone beyond individual assaults.

    “It’s surprising, because the Norwegian police have long said that the right wing extremist community was under control,” said Hegghammer, of the Norwegian Defence Research Establishment. “This man appears to have been acting on his own, which is probably why he got under the radar of the police.”

    But he added, “it’s extremely unusual for lone wolves to carry out two kinds of operations at one time.”

    “Everyone wants answers, and they go for brand names first,” says security expert Kamran Bokhari of Stratfor global intelligence firm. “But until there is a proper investigation, they’re just chasing ghosts.”
