    Oslo Explosion / Update: Shooting Also

    Oslo Explosion / Update: Shooting Also

    Several readers have e-mailed me with links to the explosion in downtown Oslo, Norway, outside the Prime Minister’s office.

    The explosion has all the indications of a car bomb, but reports are too preliminary to say. Rather than speculating, I’ll wait until more is known.

    If it is a terrorist attack tied to the Middle East, it certainly would be deep in irony. While Norway is a strong U.S. ally, Norwegian leftist groups have been at the forefront of the anti-Israel movement, anti-Semitism is rising, and even the Norwegian government has moved away from Israel in recent years.

    Updates, as they come in:

    Fox News confirms with Oslo police that it was a bomb blast.

    Reuters also is reporting a shooting at a summer camp which apparently was coordinated, and Fox News is attributing the attacks to al-Qaeda.

    I haven’t been able to keep up with all the updates today, Michelle Malkin has more.

    Europe’s “Maybe they’ll eat us last” approach to the threat modern islam poses to the West was a bad idea from day one. We’ll see more of this stuff, not less.
