68 Norwegian terror supporters killed by terrorist

Barry Rubin writes:

One of the most sensitive aspects of the very sensitive subject of the murderous terrorist attack in Norway by a right-wing gunman is this irony: The youth political camp he attacked was at the time engaged in what was essentially (though the campers didn’t see it that way, no doubt) a pro-terrorist program.

The camp, run by Norway’s left-wing party, was lobbying for breaking the blockade of the terrorist Hamas regime in the Gaza Strip and for immediate recognition of a Palestinian state without that entity needing do anything that would prevent it from being a terrorist base against Israel. They were backing and justifying forces that had committed terrorism against Israelis and killed thousands of people…

Even to mention this irony is dangerous since it might be taken to imply that the victims “had it coming.”…

Like Rubin, I also am not implying in any way that the victims “deserved” what happened to them. It nevertheless remains an undeniable, objective fact that all of the people killed by the terrorist at the Utoya camp were themselves members of an organized group of terror supporters.

LA to James R.:

What Rubin said really crystalized the issue, didn’t it?

James R. replies:

Yes it did—peace and Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades and Hamas “armed struggle,” it’s always rich hearing complaints about lending support to violent fanatics from this kind of group. Which doesn’t imply any support for killing them, but taking lectures from such people on disassociating oneself from intemperate positions and extremists is too much. They’re always telling us to take the speck out of our eye.
