”Terrorism researcher”, Magnus Ranstorp, says they’ve got Islam all wrong, they just didn’t know the ”true Islam”. Funny how that is, even after all the carpet pounding and koran reading, they just keep getting it all wrong.
According to Al Shabaab a 60 year old Norwegian-Somali man drove a truck with explosives into a hotel in Somalia in March this year, 32 people have been killed. PST IS investigating the case.

Seven suicide bombers from Scandinavia
Seven men from Norway, Sweden and Denmark went to war – and have blown themselves up to kill others.
– Suicide bombers are cannon fodder and may have little knowledge about Islam. It is a paradox that the blasts are in the name of Allah, says terrorism researcher Magnus Ranstorp.
– Suicide bombers see themselves as the ultimate spearhead of defense against abuse of Muslim brothers and sisters. They consider that the best they can be, a martyr shaheed, says Magnus Ranstorp, internationally recognized terrorism researcher at the Swedish Försvarshögskolan.
He directs the work of foreign fighters in the EU Radicalisation Awareness Network (RAN).
– Death Culture among extreme Muslims
More and more young men who grew up in or have lived in Scandinavia, some of the world’s safest countries, traveling to the world’s most dangerous countries to blow themselves up in the war. Ranstorp believe there are various reasons for this, including a culture of death among some Muslims with extreme opinions.
– There is a culture of death where they glorify death more than life, he says.
