On the tragedy in Norway

It seems worth to say a few words about the tragic events in Norway. I wanted to express my grief but at the same time express my concern that the event may be used to silence honest criticism of Islamic Law, and to curb freedom of expression related to human rights violations against women, homosexuals, etc.

I came accross a number of excellent articles about the event. Worth reading:
  1. Phyllis Chesler wrote  What Did the Norwegian Murderer Think?
  2. Michael Leeden wrote The Myths of Oslo.
  3. Daniel Pipes wrote Norway's Terrorism in Context.
  4. Caroline Glick wrote Column One: Breivik and totalitarian democrats
Update on 15 August: 
  1. A prophetic interview from April 2011 with Bruce Bawer on Norwegian Anti-Semitism
  2. Norway, Free Speech, and the Counterjihad - Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer
