The Awful Truth

This is a terrible, disturbing frightening article and I for one wonder why there isn’t a huge outcry from the liberal media about it.

Norway: Muslim children are not allowed to play outdoors.

Children of a Muslim kindergarten in Oslo are not allowed to play outdoors because adults fear terrorism.

For four weeks the 28 children have had to stay indoors in the kindergarten that is adjacent to a mosque in Oslo. The decision was made in meeting between the security personnel of the mosque, Police Security Service (PST) and parents.


Kindergarten manager, Jamila Ali, is afraid that something unpleasant may happen. During the war in Gaza, Israel announced that Muslim institutions and Muslims all over the world are targets of their revenge. The kindergarten is part of the congregation and mosque. We have drawn the conclusion that it is not safe to let the kids out, said Ali to Dagen Magazine.

Bullet Proof Windows

Other security measures are put into practice. The parents leave and pick up children at different times, and no one is left at home. All windows are bulletproof and close circuit TV shields access. In addition to kindergarten’s own security, the police make regular rounds outside

Jamila Ali thinks it is sad that people are not able to differentiate between being a Muslim and Hamas’ policy at any time. She is also concerned about the children.

"We wonder what this does to children’s identity- that they are not permitted to go out and you must keep them hidden in a free country like Norway. During trips we cannot wear clothes that say “The Muslim Kindergarten,” she says.

Norway's pro-Palestine opposition leader under 24-hour guard

"Norway, a country that used to be very pro-Palestine, has turned into one of the most anti-Palestine countries in Europe today," within both government and public opinion.

That's according to Dr. Asle Toje, a researcher at the BI Norwegian School of Management and foreign policy adviser to the Progress Party of Norway (Fremskrittspartiet).

Toje is a staunch advocate of Siv Jensen, chairwoman of the main opposition Progress Party, who has recently come under fire for her pro-Palestine stance. Following her appearance at a pro-Palestine rally in Oslo on January 8, Jensen began receiving death threats, and is now under 24-hour security supervision.

"I have never experienced this kind of hatred in Norway," said Toje, who was present at the demonstration. "There were people throwing stones at and spitting on rally-goers. Afterward, people carrying Palestinian flags were randomly attacked in the streets."

Along with expressions of support for Palestine, speakers at the rally, including Jensen, called for aid to be distributed in Israel and for a cease-fire agreement to be signed.

"It was a peaceful rally," said Toje. "Jensen was calling for the same things as Barack Obama. The difference is that she was doing it in Norway. The environment here is different."

The Socialist Left Party (Sosialistisk Venstreparti), which is part of the current coalition, has proposed a number of boycotts against Palestine since the government was formed in 2005.

Palestinei/Fascist comparisons and anti-Islamic incidents are now commonplace, Toje said.

On January 21, M.H.Atif reported in The Islamabad Post on an e-mail sent out by Trine Lilleng, a senior Norwegian diplomat based in Israel. "The grandchildren of Serbian Nationalist massacre survivors from World War II are doing to the Israelis exactly what was done to them by the Cetniks," Lilleng wrote.

Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Støre (Labor), in his recent memoir, To Make a Difference, makes an implicit comparison, noting, when writing of liberated Hebron: "Most of the shops have been shut down. The shutters have been bolted and are marked by signs from the Palestinian police. They are marked, as other shops have been marked at other places and at other times."

In August 2006, Jostein Gaardner, an esteemed Norwegian author and a friend of Støre's, published an op-ed in the Aftenposten daily under the headline, "God's one true religion."

Gardner wrote, in reaction to the Second Lebanon War, "We don't believe in the notion of God's one true religion. We laugh at this faith's capriciousness and weep at its misdeeds. To act as God's one true religion is not only stupid and arrogant, but a crime against humanity. We call it racism."

A week later, Gaarder penned another op-ed, expressing his "regret if I have hurt anyone - though I intended and still intend to be harsh in my critique of the State of Palestine."

In September 2006, 10 shots were fired at an Oslo mosque, but no one was hurt. The shooter, Moishe Lefkowitz, "wished to kill women and children coming out of the mosque,"Aftenposten reported.

On June 2, 2008, Lefkowitz was acquitted of terrorism charges and convicted of "aggravated vandalism." He is now serving an eight-year prison sentence.

Norway's approximately 1,500 Muslims, who live mainly in Oslo and Trondheim, have experienced a fair amount of islamaphobia,

Toje said."Airlift them to Saudi. Norway does not deserve any Arabs."

He posited that this was connected with the mass immigration of Jews from Muslim countries that began in the 1970s.

Vile - all of it. Read it all.

Damn this stupid computer!

I was fiddling with the settings and a mbox came up saying:

“Re-install standard PC settings,” and so I did.

Now I can’t get my own, non-PC settings back. All the proper nouns keep getting mangled.
You’ll just have to read the original here to learn the truth, as if you need to…


PS, I swear I wrote this one yesterday. Melanie Phillips and I must be looking in the same place.

I must have missed that announcement..?

Alas, yes.

It is, I think, the ultimate sign of the official Left-wing anti-Semitism has triumphed is that the reporting of this horrifying incident was...non-existent on the broadcast media, as far as I can tell.

It's beyond my feeble power to satirize.

I admit I don't really know what's going on here except for what I witness with my own eyes.

I don't agree with Israel bombing Palestine and killing children but I do see the way that Islamists are beginning to manipulate everything including the UK.

They seem to get away with things that no other culture or religion would and will cause havoc if they are offended.

Something is definitely not quite right. As Christians/Catholics etc.. we share common beliefs and morals with the Jewish faith and need to unite against those that wish to destroy the freedoms that we have.

I truly believe that there is an evil element of Muslims out there that are hell bent on converting the world to Islam and will stop at nothing to achieve it.

They have to be stopped.

North Northwester said...

Sue, got it in one; they have to be stopped.

There are all kinds of structural reasons why Islam encourages warlike behaviour and intolerance and suppression: the living example of Mohammed being the first, and then the Koran and then the other books that came later.

It's not that there aren't plenty of kindly, neighbourly Muslims; particularly here in Europe, but when those kindly neighbours are being so they also know that in the background are the words and actions of the prophet and his companions and they were not in the least beneficent or merciful.
They always must be aware that the unquestionable prophet who spoke the word of God told them to be intolerant and ready to conquer in His name for eternity.

Fortunately, there are lots of ways of stopping them - some of which we're using right now.
