Terrorist Bomb Attack in Oslo, Norway ... Who Dunnit?

Washington's Blog

Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims.

Norway is an odd choice as a Muslim terror target:
  • Norway has endorsed Palestinian statehood. See this, this and this
  • Norway has excluded Isareli investments. As Haaertz reported last year:
Norway’s 450 billion euro oil-riches fund has excluded two Israeli firms involved in developing settlements ... on ethical grounds, Norway’s finance ministry said on Monday.
  • Indeed, Senator Lieberman has accused Norway of promoting anti-semitism
  • Norway has also announced its plan to withdraw from the Libyan war
Israeli MOSSAD caught posing as "Al Qaeda"
among Palestinians in November and December of 2001
This is hardly the profile of a normal Muslim terrorist target. Therefore, many are alleging that it is another false flag terror attack.

In addition, as Business Insider notes:
The other big possibility, touted by some on Twitter, is that the attack could have come from the Norwegian right. The Norwegian far right were once a feared proposition but have been relatively mellow in recent years due to the success of populist success of the Progress Party.
BBC notes:
Meanwhile a gunman dressed as a policeman started shooting at a Labour youth camp on the island of Utoeya.
Unconfirmed reports say several people have been killed. The gunman has been arrested.
The Telegraph reports:
Hours later there was an summer camp youth conference of the ruling Labour Party, which is being attended by current Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg. The conference is taking place on the island of Utøya. The man apparently infiltrated the conference on the pretence that he had been sent by the police as a security measure in the wake of the Oslo explosions. As such, it is likely he was ethnically Norwegian. This could indicate the involvement of a far-right group rather than an Islamist group ...
But see this.
