Terror in Norway

The pain of the families of the 80+ young adults gunned down at a summer camp in Norway is unimaginable.

The 32-year-old man suspected in bomb and shooting attacks that killed at least 91 people in Norway bought six tons of fertilizer before the massacres, the supplier said Saturday as police investigated witness accounts of a second shooter.
The suspect in police custody [is] a blonde blue-eyed Norwegian with reported Christian fundamentalist, anti-Muslim views…

I hate to be skeptical in the wake of a senseless atrocity like this, but I would not be surprised to see this used in the weeks ahead as justification for increased surveillance of citizens with no prior indications of violent behavior here in the U.S. — especially fundamentalist Christians who speak out against militant Islam.

This evil act has already been described as Norway’s Oklahoma City, a reference to the 1995 bombing of the Murrah Federal Building in OKC. In some quarters, the Oklahoma City bombing is still blamed on fundamentalist Christians.
