The real thing

I received this picture with a Hebrew caption (Hat Tip: Ariella Z). It says "In the framework of the summer camp for Norwegian youth at Utoya, counselors of the Norwegian Labor party organized a pretend flotilla to Gaza, in which participants boarded a rubber dinghie, donned kaffiyehs, waved 'Palestinian' flags and waved signs denigrating Israel and calling for 'freedom' for Gaza. In the Norwegian social networking groups, it is said that the practice was preparation for the real thing."

I guess terrorism is sometimes okay.

I don't know whether the people pictured were among Anders Behring Breivik's victims, but the headline that went with the photo caption intimated that they were.

The logo on the red banner in the front of the picture says "SU - Sosialistisk Ungdom", which is the youth league of the Socialist Left Party of Norway.

The massacre took place at the summer camp of the youth league of a different party, namely the Norwegian Labour Party. So no, the picture is not from that camp. The Hebrew caption is obviously wrong.

And besides, does a person who supports the "Flotilla to Gaza" deserve to be slaughtered?

Has anybody seen it reported whether Breivik ever attended this camp as a teen? He grew up in a Labor family...

Anders Behring Breivik really did exaggerate a little

Isak BK Aasvestad,

I don't read Norwegian so I cannot comment further on the banner.

No one said that anyone who joins a flotilla to Gaza deserves to be slaughtered. However, one must recognize that joining such a flotilla is an act of war and may subject one to the consequences of engaging in war.

And one must also recognize that Norwegian support for terrorism (and supporting the flotillas supports Hamas terrorism by giving them access to weapons in Gaza that are then used against civilians - both Israeli and 'Palestinian') convinces some Norwegians like Breivik that there's nothing wrong with terrorism.

I have a post in the queue that addresses all of these points. You might want to check back in about three hours.
