UPDATE on 23JUL2011 at 1427…

-Stacy McCain has filed another report [which he is continuing to update as the story unfolds] with the latest news on these terrorist attacks.  He also took the time to look at the political blowback on the story:

By the time I got on this story yesterday, Michelle Malkin had already been blogging it for an hour. Early on, she had provided background on Norway’s Muslim immigrant population and ongoing deportation proceedings against a radical Kurdish cleric, Mullah Krekar. As she also noted, Malkin got blowback on Twitter from somebody at the Johns Hopkins University Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies, who suggested Malkin was “jumping to conclusions.”

Look, this had all the hallmarks of an al-Qaeda operation, especially the fact of the seemingly simultaneous attacks: the bomb (or bombs) in downtown Oslo and the shootings at the Utoya youth camp. The African embassy bombings, the 9/11 attacks, the attacks in London and Spain — over and over we’ve seen how al-Qaeda likes to stage multiple terror strikes simultaneously. It’s like their trademark.

Several mainstream news organizations were reporting some of the same background facts that Malkin included in her post, and also noting Norway’s NATO troop deployment to Aghanistan. These news organizations included those facts for the same reason that Malkin did — because the Norwegian attack seemed to fit a well-established pattern of radical Islamic terror attacks in Europe.

And it is important to note the obverse: There had been no similar pattern of right-wing “Christian fundamentalist” terror attacks in Europe. In fact, so far as I know, yesterday’s attack was the first incident of its kind — an absolutely unique and unprecedented event.

Exactly.  These attacks have all the marks of a Muslim hit, as it were.  Just because the man arrested looked like a former member of Kraftwerk did not necessarily mean that he was not acting in the name of Allah.  The Mohammedins have been recruiting actively in the white populations of Europe.

Please do keep checking in over at Stacy’s place for further information and no-BS analysis.
