    There may be a Labor Party connection: This was reportedly at a children's school where the Norwegian PM was scheduled to speak on Saturday.

    I heard it was actually a Labour Party Youth Convention

    “30 mins ago, a man posing as a police officer has fired several shots at a Labour Party Youth convention, over 700 people attending, on Utøya, an island west of Oslo. It has been reported that the man in a police uniform identified himself as a police officer when boarding the boat to the island. He said it was a ‘routine control’ in connection with the terrorist bombing earlier in Oslo city.

    Right. I mis-stated it being a school.

    The Norwegian guy I know from the Ferrari site is pretty upset about this, to be sure. Even said something about it maybe being NEO-NAZIS before saying the he was signing off for a few hours.

    Seems that Labour party people were ironically very accepting of the Muslim community in Norway, so nobody can quite figure out what the logic or motivations were in all this...time will tell.

    Looks like there was a gun attack coinciding with the bombing. Are some Norwegians going Viking?

    A terror group, Ansar al-Jihad al-Alami, or the Helpers of the Global Jihad, issued a statement claiming responsibility for the attack, according to Will McCants, a terrorism analyst at C.N.A., a research institute that studies terrorism. The message said the attack was a response to Norwegian forces’ presence in Afghanistan and to unspecified insults to the Prophet Muhammad. “We have warned since the Stockholm raid of more operations,” the group said, according to Mr. McCants’ translation, apparently referring to a bombing in Sweden in December 2010. “What you see is only the beginning, and there is more to come.” The claim could not be confirmed.

    They aren't. This bombing means we are in for a special treat: a weeks-long lesson about how Islam is a religion of peace.
