Following Friday's devastating shooting massacre, Norwegian police have called off the search for bodies and people on and around the small island of Utoya.
The conclusion of the search comes on the same day that the body of a Georgian girl was discovered at the bottom of the lake on the island.
The death toll of the massacre on Utoya stands at 68 of the 76 total victims that lost their lives in the shooting rampage and car bomb attack undertaken by Andres Behring Breivik. more >>
NEW YORK – New York City’s historic St. Paul’s Chapel tolled the “Bell of Hope” today in a remembrance ceremony to mourn and honor Norway’s massacre victims.
Norwegian Consul Aslaug Nygard attended the ceremony to ring the bell in honor of the victims.
The ceremony took place at noon Tuesday outside of St. Paul’s Chapel, located directly across from the World Trade Center site in Lower Manhattan. During the World Trade Center recovery operation following the 9/11 attacks, the Chapel had served a half million hot meals to workers and was seen as a place of hope to city workers. more >>
Conservative bloggers are feeling the heat all the way from Norway. The political right is coming under fire for allegedly stoking the anti-Islamic flames that are thought to have inspired Anders Behring Breivik’s killing spree in Norway on Friday. One conservative blogger and known anti-jihadist, Pamela Geller, speaks out on what she describes as the “outrageous” injustice that has been done to her and her fellow activists.
“It’s like equating Charles Manson, who heard in the lyrics of Helter Skelter a calling for the Manson murders,” Geller said in a phone interview to the Daily Caller. “It’s like blaming the Beatles. It’s patently ridiculous.” Geller runs the web blog known as "Atlas Shrugs."
Breivik killed 76 people on Friday when he went on a bombing and shooting spree in Oslo. This was the worst attack the country has experienced since World War II. It has been reported that Breivik is an anti-Muslim and anti-multiculturalist extremist. more >>
Norway is one of the most beautiful places on earth. A Nordic paradise of fjords, coastline, glaciers, forests. Norwegians are rightfully proud of their prosperous, peaceful society.
Well, today, Norway is in a state of absolute, total shock in the aftermath of one of the most cold-blooded, heartless acts of terrorism since 9/11. The Norwegians are desperately trying to explain this senseless slaughter. The killer has been described as a right-wing extremist, a fundamentalist Christian, an anti-immigrant fanatic, and mentally ill. Most likely, in my opinion, a fascist.
But here are two root causes of this horrible act that few in Norway, or the rest of the Western world for that matter, will acknowledge: Evil and sin. more >>
Fox News Host Bill O'Reilly is appalled, along with many others, over the media's use of the word "Christian" to identify the killer responsible for dozens of deaths in Norway.
In his show Monday night, the outspoken host accused the liberal media of playing up the Christian angle in the tragic story because they want the public to believe that fundamentalist Christians are a threat like "crazy jihadists are."
Another reason for the Christian angle push from the liberal media: "They don't like Christians very much because we are too judgmental," O'Reilly observed. more >>
Glenn Beck is drawing sharp criticism after he compared those who attended the Norwegian camp where Friday's massacre occurred to the “Hitler Youth.”
Beck addressed the attacks on Norway during a Monday morning radio broadcast, when he suddenly crossed the line.
“As the thing started to unfold and there was a shooting at a political camp, which sounds a little like the Hitler Youth. Who does a camp for kids that's all about politics? Disturbing,” he said. more >>
