Two terrorist attacks in Norway today

There has been two terrorist attacks in Oslo, Norway, today. A car bomb exploded killing 7, injuring 15.

Also, later on this evening, a man dressed as a police opened fire outside of Oslo on a youth camp arranged by the Norwegian Labour party. About 30 people were killed!

We still don’t know if these two events are connected, but it would surprise me if they were not. The perpetrators are most likely Islamic although that hasn’t been confirmed yet.

Last year in Stockholm a suicide bomber killed himself (but luckily no-one else as the bomb went off too early), and the same day, a car bomb exploded.

Police in Norway say this might only be the first in a series of attacks. Let’s hope they’re wrong. Praying for the victims and their families.

My condolences to those who suffered loss as a result of those attacks. It is a stark and painful reminder that the war on terror continues. Even if the US quits fighting that war, the jihadists are not quitting any time soon.

I should add that I don't know if jihadists were in any way responsible for this attack, but since that is the group that has caused the most terror, my thoughts went there first. That might have been unfair of me. If so, I apologize.

Don't EVER apologize for your gut feeling ( gut instinct)!! You are correct in your first thoughts. Islam IS responsible. Follow your intuition...... do not allow yourself to be a victim of political correctness. Express your thoughts as you feel them....... :-) Of course, if Islam has its way, none of us will be able to express our thoughts freely ~ As the Norwegian public found out today.
