After reading this lunatic’s manifesto, it became clear why he attacked this youth center. It was a Leftist indoctrination camp. One of the activities at this camp was the demonization of Israel. In fact, when the shooting began, some thought it was a simulation of what they are taught, Israel does in Gaza.
“Some of my friends tried to stop him by talking to him. Many people think on the island that it was a test … comparing it to how it is to live in Gaza. So many people went to him and tried to talk to him, but they were shot immediately.” – Adrian Pracon
Why would these kids think this? Clearly there was anti-Israel/Jewish indoctrination going on. In fact, a few days before the shooting, the Norwegian Foreign Minister attended a boycott Israel event at this camp…
Commenter newsjunkie_ky on the above Blogmocracy thread posted the following link:
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu issued a statement on Saturday night offering his condolences to the Norwegian people, one day after a Norwegian extremist carried out a bombing in the government center in Oslo, killing seven people, before heading to an island summer camp for young members of the governing Labor Party and killing at least 80 people, many of them teenagers.
“The Israeli people identify with the deep pain and grief of the Norwegian people,” Netanyahu said in his statement.
President Shimon Peres also sent a condolence letter to the people of Norway, saying, “Israel is shocked and feels the pain of the Norwegian people over this heinous murder of innocent young people. Our hearts go out to the families who lost their loved ones and we pray for the healing of the injured.”
Peres also wrote to the king of Norway that Israel was ready to offer any assistance necessary.
Meanwhile, Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon also sent Norway an official offer of assistance. Norway has reportedly declined Israel’s offer.
Ayalon told Israel Hayom, “I offered help in rescuing victims, as well as medical and forensic assistance for identification. Unfortunately, we have an advantage in these fields because of the attacks that have taken place in Israel.”…
This stands as one more example of the nobility and magnanimity of the nation and people of Israel as benefactors of humanity.
Magnanimity is a sadly unfamiliar concept these days. The word is falling into obscurity. Let me take this opportunity to breathe fresh life into it:
1. generous in forgiving an insult or injury; free from petty resentfulness or vindictiveness: to be magnanimous toward one’s enemies.
2. high-minded; noble: a just and magnanimous ruler.
3. proceeding from or revealing generosity or nobility of mind, character, etc.: a magnanimous gesture of forgiveness.
The hypocrisy of the left
Here I quote Et Norsk Troll on Blogmocracy:
I had better hear a *LOT* of the ‘we need to understand why this was done to us’ babbling from the Left, like was done after 9/11.
After 9/11, every liberal and his friend explored every way possible that America was responsible for causing the Muslim Jihadis to strike…
…now I want to see them genuflect on why they provoked Anders to strike.
Good for the goose, good for the gander, says I.
I have a few suggestions:
- “What is it that we have done to deserve being bombed and our children shot to death?”
- “What policies should we change so that we don’t offend the World’s Right?”
- “What kind of submissive dialog should we engage in with the Right so this kind of thing doesn’t happen again”.
