Although the report of Islam’s threats in Norway worry me, they do not surprise me, for more than 20 years the nation of Norway, mainly under the tutelage of the Socialist Labor Party, has made that nation a welcoming center of Moslem immigration. The chickens have come home to roost.
Full disclosure: I served as Press Attaché at the U.S. Embassy to Norway from 1984-88, and to this day keep in contact with several of my former Norwegian friends. On a personal level, my grandson and his family live in a suburb of Oslo, and he had informed me how areas now occupied by Muslims in the capital have become “no go zones” for native Norwegians in that city. My reaction to the epidemic of sexual assaults on Norwegian women by mainly Moslem men was included in the late Lawrence Auster’s blog several years ago.
What is unusual in these events is the burning of the Norwegian flag. If anything, to those Norwegians I knew that flag was the sacred embodiment of Norway’s virtue and values, and more than one Norwegian official queried me as to how the U.S. would allow the burning of our flag as a constitutional prerogative.
