My sympathy at the terrible loss of life in Norway extends especially to their left-wing politicians who thankfully dominate the country's political narrative. I have just heard one of their senior government members on the BBC news claim that, with the 'possible exception of the Beslan massacre', the Norway attack was 'unprecedented because it was the only terrorist attack in history in which children were specifically targeted'.
Maalot in 1974) in their hundreds on buses (as they did during the second intifada and numerous previous occasions) at a disco, and even when they decapitate Israeli toddlers and babies as they did this year in Itamar, none of that counts as terrorism. Thankfully the Norwegians are usually the first to explain that the attackers had justified grievances.
And let's also makes it absolutely clear that the victims at Utoya Island were schoolchildren at a summer holiday camp. Just be because they were also, in fact, mostly young adults who were all part of the Young Socialist League at a political indoctrination event makes no difference. None of these people deserved to be harmed in any way, especially when you look at the photo above (courtesy of the Blaze, where you can read the full story) to see the kind of natural anti-Israel anti-capitalist activity they were involved with the very day before the attack.
In a Europe where countries fight with themselves to be seen as the leaders in anti-Israel activism I am delighted to state that Norway reigns supreme by a long distance. And, while it it is safe haven for our Islamic friends, it also leads the way in classic anti-Semitism. So long live Norway!
My thoughts go out to the Norwegian victims and their families and friends. But the Norwegian politicians are especially in the hearts and minds of the Palestinians (even more so when you see solidarity like this).
