Bomb Explosion Rocks Norwegian Gov’t Headquarters After Terrorist Charges Last Week

“I saw three or four injured people being carried out of the building…”   Read More »

The cause of the explosion was not clear. Asked whether police suspected a terror attack, she said: “It’s too early to speculate in that.”ya think?

The news wires are citing the terror charges against Mullah Krekar last week and other jihad-related incidents as possible causes. The Mosqito Mullah, who has been hauled up in Norway for many years now, has threatened many times that bombs would go off if the Norwegians come down on him.  Now its happened. Which simply proves that there should be gov’t sanctioned assassinations, not protracted court cases that cost the taxpayer millions.

Musta been the Mossad, CIA, them Jooozzz. Or Bushhitler…..?!

I bet the Norwegians are really suprised at how they backed the wrong horse in the Middle East. You know, that horse which is hugely anti-Semitic and blames Israel for all the ills of the earth.

Remind me again what country Vidkun Quisling came from and what happened to him for backing the wrong horse in WW2.  (eye on the world)

OSLO, Norway (AP) — A powerful bomb tore open several Oslo buildings, including the prime minister’s office, on Friday, killing at least one person, a Norwegian news agency said. Several people also were injured, as the blast shattered windows and coated the street with documents.

A massive explosion caused by “one or more bombs” rocked central Oslo on Friday, killing “several” people, injuring dozens more and severely damaging government buildings including the Prime Minister’s office.

The blast, which occurred about 3.30pm local time on Friday, left at least a dozen people injured amid fears “hundreds” had died.

At least two people were confirmed dead from the blast, which occurred at the government headquarters which house the offices of Jens Stoltenberg.

It remains unclear what caused the blast or if it was a terrorism attack. A tangled wreckage of a car was outside one building.

The damage appeared consistent with that from car bombs. Authorities had no warning of the attack.

Meanwhile there were unconfirmed reports that youths at a political camp were shot by a man dressed as a police officer.

Police confirmed the explosion was caused by a “one or more” bombs. Local media reported that police had confirmed “several deaths”. Police urged people to stay of their mobile phones.

“This is very serious,” the Norwegian Prime Minister told local television in in a phone call from an undisclosed location.

He said that all cabinet ministers in the centre-left coalition government seemed to be safe.

He said it was too early to say if the blast was a terrorist attack. He said that police had advised him not to say where he was speaking from. Damage to buildings was as far as five blocks away.

The Prime Minister was reported to be safe. He had been scheduled to visit the areas outside the city on Friday.

“A powerful explosion has taken place in the government quarter,” Norwegian police said in a statement.

Injured people were seen lying on the street in pools of blood. Heavy debris littered the streets and smoke rose over the city centre.

There were reports of people trapped in the buildings hit.

The 17-storey building, which also houses Norway’s biggest tabloid newspaper VG, was reported to be on fire, with thick black smoke being seen for miles.

Witnesses reported the massive blast blew out most windows in the building as well as nearby government departments including the oil ministry, in Norway’s capital and most populated city.

The bottom floor appeared to be completely gutted

“I’m still in my work office and people here seem pretty freaked out and are ringing around friends and relatives like mad,” Ruarí Ødegaard, an exatriate Briton living in Oslo told The Daily Telegraph.

“Also can hear quite a few police sirens even where I am.”

Mr Odegaard, 34, whose wife Kjersti is Norwegian, moved to Oslo in 2008 after growing up in Frimley, Surrey. He works for a software company a few miles from the blast site.

“She walked right past that building shortly before the explosion. Which kinda freaks me out!”, he added.

“The local media seem very confused.

“One minute NRK (national media like BBC) reported two explosions and then a moment later they retracted. So far no reports of deaths just injuries but again no figures as to how many.

“Being a tech company we have lots of foreign workers including quite a few Brits. As far as I know we are all ok.”

A witness called Sylvio, who lives close to the centre of the explosions said he arrived on the scene less than three minutes after the intial blast.

He told the BBC: “I saw people being brought out of buldings unconscious and people lying unconsious on the floor on the. They could have been dead or alive I just don’t know.”

Users on Twitter also described sheer panic.

“I fear that many 100s could be dead. Poor poor poor guard that worked in the first floor. :(:(,” one local trader posted on Twitter.

He added later: “There has not been any more blasts in Oslo after the one. It is confirmed that it was indeed a bomb.”

Another witness told public radio NRK: “I see that some windows of the VG building and the government headquarters have been broken. Some people are covered with blood are lying in the street.”

Ingunn Andersen, a local journalist, said: “There is glass everywhere. It is total chaos. The windows of the all the surrounding buildings have been blown out.”

Kjersti Vedun, who was leaving the area, added: It exploded – it must have been a bomb. people ran in panic and ran. I counted at least 10 injured people.”

Witness Ole Tommy Pedersen was standing at a bus stop about 100 yards from the high-rise when he saw the blast shatter almost all windows of the highrise. He said a cloud of smoke is billowing from the bottom floors.

“I saw three or four injured people being carried out of the building a few minutes later,” he said.

Other offices are being evacuated.

No other details were immediately known.

NATO member Norway has sometimes in the past been threatened by leaders of al Qaeda for its involvement in Afghanistan.

But political violence is virtually unknown in the country.

David Lea, Western Europe analyst, at Control Risks said: “It’s very difficult to tell what has happened. There certainly aren’t any domestic Norwegian terrorist groups although there have been some al Qaeda-linked arrests from time to time.

“They are in Afghanistan and were involved in Libya, but it’s far too soon to draw any conclusions.”

  1. Here is your “conclusion.” Another CRUSADE is the answer.


  2. Seamus, I don’t know about you, BUT I’ve been CHRISTO REY’ing for some time now. Spreading the word is the most important step, hey ! Sheik ???

  3. I’m swedish and when I heard this had happened, I was terrified and angry. We had a suicide bomber in Stockholm last december who (luckily) only killed himself. This is however nowhere near the terror that happened in Oslo yesterday. The world has to cooperate against terrorism in any form, be it christians, muslims, political extremists etc. Sweden is your neighbour, Norway. And we will be with you through this ordeal.

  4. I agree with you Courtney. But the problem is getting out of hand, particularly because of the special treatment many muslims receive in the west. Why should I work when I know I will be given everything?? Why should I contribute and integrate when I have been told I am better because I believe in a certain religion and that I should consider all other who see differently as something less than human. You may laugh, but this is what a significant minority of the RoP really do believe and this viewpoint is very valid within the framework of islam. The problem is not muslims but islam. Now we have an extreme right wing idiot who has murdered over 90, and probably more than 100 – again his actions are almost certainly based on an extreme interpretation of religion. The jihadist morons are cheering which is no surprise, but we might be able to use this tragedy in a positive way. We need to understand why this has happened. There is a significant probability that this has happened precisely because the left wing governments in Scandinavia have allowed immigrants to virtually do as they have wished and this is a highly improper response formulated by a person who is very frustrated with the way the Norwegan government has been handing issues. Equally he could be a nut-job who got 2012 out of perspective – at present either is as likely. One cannot really comment on the 2012 issue, unless one understands the minds of the Mayan priests who make the predictions. But on the other issue one can say something. Why have 100% of sexual attacks on Norwegian women in the past 5 years been committed by muslims??? Because many muslims have misinterpreted the unwillingness of the respective governments to bring them to task as a sign that they can do as they wish. I understand tribal Pakistanis and kurds- this is their mentality – you folks have absolutely no idea about what you have invited into your countries. There is a great deal of hidden anger in both Sweden and Norway with the officials who have turned their heads to the problems of integration with the RoP. And it does not held that Saudi Arabia is funding extremists in Norway and Sweden ie islamic goups in university of Oslo. Even if the idiot who killed innocent people yesterday was motivated by other issues, the central problems associated with immigration are not going to disappear unless you folks get of your arses and solve the problems. Maybe 100 people have has their lives stolen – the least we can do is to make their deaths have some meaning – for the future generations we need to solve these problems now. For the people who died and for their families we can only pray and hope that they can somehow come to terms with their losses.
