Three men were indicted in Norway for their role in planning to blow up both the US and Israeli embassies in Oslo. As I remember, they were also planning to decapitate the former Israeli ambassador to Finland, Miriam Shomrat.
“OSLO, Norway: Three men have been indicted on charges connected with an attack on an Oslo synagogue or plotting to attack the U.S. or Israeli embassies in the Norwegian capital, the national prosecutor said Tuesday.
Arfan Bhatti, 30, was indicted on charges of firing gunshots at Norway’s main synagogue in September 2006, for conspiring to commit a terror attack on the embassies and on other unrelated charges.
Andreas Bog Kristiansen, 27, was indicted with Bhatti on charges of plotting to use explosives or weapons to attack the U.S. or Israeli embassies, and conspiring to commit armed robbery. Ibrahim Oezbabacan, 29, was indicted, with Bhatti, for either firing or being an accomplice to 13 shots being fired at the Oslo synagogue.
So, it looks like the Norwegians have a “revert” (Christian or Jew convert to Islam) in the group of jihadis, Finland has one (as far as we know) as well. I can’t find the article, but I know for a fact that during the same time period, Norwegians living in the vicinity of the Israeli embassy were complaining about the size of its security fence.
Hmmm, less security means more chances of a successful terrorist attack. It would appear that some Norwegians could care less about Israeli security, in Israel or in Norway. More here. *L* KGS
