    Norway bow-and-arrow suspect was flagged for radicalization (apnews.com)

    This is a shocking and horrific crime, but I'm reticent to make any conclusions here. They say he was a Muslim convert who was flagged for radicalization, but there's not much information about that. The article also indicates that he didn't start killing people until after the police arrived. They also said he was from Denmark, so why would a Muslim convert from Denmark go to a small town in Norway and start killing people with a bow and arrow?

    Well...worth remembering that travelling between EU countries isn't quite the same as most international border crossings. But I agree this is a bit 'wait and see' based on what I've read.

    In Europe, the multi cultural bandwagon frequently demands turning a blind eye to or downplaying horrific crimes so as not to offend or be considered racist and women are frequently the ones who suffer the most so you may not see or hear much more about this.

    This form of news is not something Norwegian people does not forget so easy. As a convert my self, I have gotten a lot of questions about this case, and how Muslims here now feel.
    The killing must stop, thats the message i hear in Norway
