As if to put all this nonsense into perspective, a few days after the July 22 commission’s report was released, another document was made public. It was a letter, addressed to various Norwegian politicians and journalists and purportedly sent by a group called Ansar al-Sunna that presumes to speak on behalf of all Muslims in Norway. In the letter, the members of Ansar al-Sunna indicate that they do not wish to mix with infidels “and your filthy values and attitudes. You don’t respect your women, who strut around half-naked, and you let them behave in an immoral fashion. You permit the filthy sickness of homosexuality, which goes against nature….” And so on. The authors of the letter then request that Norway hand over Grønland, a largely Muslim neighborhood in Oslo, so that they can govern it themselves, “with our own ministers, border guards, police, and legal system, run according to sharia laws, and forbid all the evil you stand for and that violates Allah’s laws.” In short: “Cordon off the neighborhood and let us govern it as we wish….We don’t want to live together with filthy beasts [skitne udyr] like you [plural].”
Oh, yes: the group has also threatened to carry out a “September 11 on Norwegian soil” – a “bigger attack than July 22.”
When I first read excerpts from the letter I doubted its authenticity; but the editors of VG say they’re familiar with the group and that the letter is legit. The sentiments expressed in the letter, of course, should not surprise anyone: Grønland is just one more urban district in Europe that’s been sliding for years down that now familiar slope toward sharia and whose time, unless something is done, is, inevitably, coming. I wonder: is Mæland even familiar with the term “no-go area”? When he was interviewed for the job of his country’s top cop, did the ongoing Islamization of Oslo even come up? Why would I not be surprised if the answer turned out to be no? This is, after all, a country whose leaders, in the years between 9/11 and July 22 of last year, seemed more often than not to believe that it possessed some special magic, or virtue, or something, that rendered it immune to the troubles that plague the rest of today’s world.
And it was that naïveté – that stubborn, puerile, and (after a certain point) inexcusable naïveté – that made July 22 possible. The atrocities of that day, and the commission’s report on the way they were handled by the people charged with protecting the citizenry, add up to a very loud wake-up call that should, if there is any sense left in the higher echelons of Norwegian officialdom, crush that naïveté once and for all – not just in regard to terrorism, but in regard to the ever-growing and more substantial (if less spectacular) threat that is represented by that vile letter from Ansar al-Sunna. Now more than ever, Norway needs to drop its illusions about itself and – just for starters – hire a real cop to lead a real police force.
