The Massacre in Norway

I always think that people of Norway and other Scandinavian countries are very cool people because of their geographical location on the northern part of the globe.

That's why I was shocked when I heard the news about the bombing in Norwegian capital Oslo followed by the shooting on the Island of Utoya last Friday that killed at least 91 people.

According to USA Today, the gunman - Anders Behring Breivik (32) Norwegian with Christian fundamentalist and anti-Islamic views, disguised as a Police officer beckoned his victims closer before shooting them one by one, claiming at least 84 lives, in a horrific killing spree on an island teeming with teenagers who were attending the ruling Labor Party Youth Wing Summer Camp on the Island of Utoya (20 miles from Oslo).

The shooting happened few hours after a bomb blast ripped through a high rise building housing a.o the Prime Minister's office, killing seven people.

Police have arrested only one suspect and said he is linked to both the shootings and the Oslo explosion

The governments of many countries, including Indonesia, have condemned the cold blooded shooting and bombing.

My deepest sympathy and condolence for the families of the victims. I hope that the Norwegian Police would be able to find out who's responsible and what's the motive for this barbaric action.

Hi Harry,
The seed for this act has been sown by the Rightist Movement in Europe; some are nationalist, some racist, some fascist, some populist,some are anti Islam, some are quite reasonable etc.They are gaining momentum in recent months with the influx of immigrants from north africa. An act of violence to make a statement is senseless.

Thanks for sharing

Very, very shocking Harry. I feel for the families of these young people, in many cases just children.

@Umihoney,
Yes Umi, making a statement by taking violent action is crazy, doesn't make any sense at all.
This tragedy proves that violence can be done by anyone who are fanatic either politically, religiously etc.

@Peter/Kiwi,
Those teenager only having some fun cannot blame them for any political reasons.

@Aulawi,
This proves that religious fanaticism is dangerous.
