Oslo: Hundreds Of Muslims Stand Against Terrorism, Form Ring Of Peace To Protect Jews

26

More than 1000 people formed a peace ring outside Norwegian capital Oslo’s only synagogue, offering protection for the country’s Jewish population and condemning deadly anti-Semitic attacks against Jews in Europe.

Omar el-Hussein, a Danish citizen of Palestinian origin, shot dead two people – a filmmaker and a volunteer Jewish security guard – in the Danish capital Copenhagen last weekend. In January, Muslim gunmen attacked and killed 17 people at the offices of Charlie Hebdo magazine and inside the kosher grocery store.

Shouting “No to anti-Semitism, no to Islamophobia”, the crowd announced their intent to stand against all forms of religiously justified violence and proved themselves allies of the Bergstien Street synagogue in Oslo.

Organizer Hajrad Arshad intended the rally to “extinguish the prejudices people have against Jews and against Muslims”. She added, “We think that after the terrorist attacks in Copenhagen, it is the perfect time for us Muslims to distance ourselves from the harassment of Jews that is happening”.

“We want to demonstrate that Jews and Muslims do not hate each other. We do not want individuals to define what Islam is for the rest of us. There are many more peace-mongers than warmongers,” co-organiser Zeeshan Abdullah told the crowd.

In the wake of the Copenhagen attacks, far-right populist movements like the Danish People’s Party are gaining traction by advocating harsher police treatment of potential terrorism suspects and the Muslim community. But with the ring of peace, Oslo’s Muslim community has thwarted these efforts of spreading hatred in the name of Islam.

  1. I want to believe what Anon is doing is right. I want to believe that this organization claiming to be of pure human capital is real. But then I come across articles like this. Are you sure that “1000 muslims” were linked in solidarity of peace? Are you sure the truth is not that there were about “1000 people” there watching a group of “tens of muslims” linked in a corriographed media display of disinformation and propaganda? Are you sure that you are not disseminating falsehoods with this article?

    From: http://www.breitbart.com/national-security/2015/02/22/media-hoax-20-muslims-holding-hands-become-1000-strong-ring-of-peace-at-oslo-synagogue/

    A local news outlet explained how the media got to its “1,300 Muslims” number. “According to police, there were 1300 persons present in the event. Very many of them ethnic Norwegians,” read a translated report from Osloby.no.

    Demonstrators also reportedly chanted, “No to anti-Semitism, no to Islamophobia,” conflating criticism of Islam and hatred of Jews.

    Photos pulled off of social media appear to corroborate the narrative that only twenty or so people formed the “peace ring.”

    I’m not saying this article is true or fails, all i want to point out is that there are some very interesting and compelling contradictions here. I so want to believe Anonymous is real and above all does its due diligence, bc if so, I am your biggest supporter. Please confirm the authenticity of this event.

    Thank you

    • Here is the concept. Who cares if the media inflated the report. The idea is sound. 1,000 Muslims, or 20 Muslims, or even if it was 1 single Muslim. The idea is that this concept should be applauded. Beginning the path to peace requires eliminating religious bias and strong emotionally charged conflict between religions.

      • Absolute rubbish, it’s all about the facts. Your credibly is everything. If you choose to ignore or deny that, then you are not a friend of peace but a spindoctor looking to manipulate people’s minds for your own secret hidden agenda.

        • So, what. According to Socialcommentarybtc, and other people who say the same, all Muslims and the like DO support terrorism and shouldn’t be trusted?

          I’m not saying whether this article is true or false, but like the others said. The idea is there. Not every Muslim is out to agree with Terrorism. When people like ISIS steps in, everyone is affected, not just us. Whether it was 20, or 1,000, it still shows that not all of them are willing to agree with terrorism and the like.

          • “According to Socialcommentarybtc, and other people who say the same, all Muslims and the like DO support terrorism and shouldn’t be trusted?” I never said anything of the sort. You are lying, you are untrustworthy, you are manipulative, you are spreading propaganda, disinformation and probably working for ISIS.

            There are 1.5 billion muslims, if only 1% of them are radical extremist looking to destroy western civilization, we are still talking about 15 million people!!!!! So really what you need to do is go fuck yourself because you can’t brainwash me! I hope you go fight for ISIS, you’ll deserve what fate awaits you.

          • You sound pretty brainwashed dude. I know several Muslims who do not support terrorist. They call them militants extremists who don’t understand the Quran. Social media wants to demonize the whole Muslim culture. U cannot listen to the media all the time can be very biased. I’ve talked to several kindhearted Muslims who described jihad as an internal battle. If u fight the urge to punch someone that is jihad. Not what the extremists paint. U can’t lump them all together like that dude.

    • This rebuttal from Breitbart.com, the site founded by Andrew Breitbart the well known right-wing, racist, homophobic Tea Party supporter.

      The site associated with Fox news.

      Yeah right, great source. I feel real confident I can trust it over the other sources…

  3. I have also read that this story may not be completely true. Another article I’ve found states there were only 20 people involved in the “ring of peace”, and not all of them were Muslim people. I found that article here: http://pamelageller.com/2015/02/media-hoax-20-muslims-holding-hands-become-1000-strong-ring-of-peace-at-oslo-synagogue-organizer-blamed-jews-for-911.html/ It’s hard to know the validity of anything I find on the internet lately.

    • Nonsense. Questioning Propaganda by Anonymous is not something people are hung up on. If Anonymous doesn’t report absolute Truth and Facts its credibility is in question. I doubt this is a true Anonymous site. It doesn’t Post like the first Anonymous site did. I’ve seen lots of mainstream or questionable articles Posted here as well. Don’t be a Sheep and say incorrect Facts, Lies or Propaganda is something people are just hung up about. You need to raise your consciousness level quick smart.

      • Thank you for your intelligent response. It would seem as if we are the only real non-propagandists here. I think your right and this site is not credible.

      • Thanks for the comment and questioning this site. The red flag for me is the ads. “Mature Asian dating for men.” Really? Shouldn’t Anonymous be against that?

      • If you think even a fraction of the nonsense that comes through this site every day is in any way the ‘truth’ or ‘facts’, you are sadly mistaken.

        Just look at all conspiracy whackjobbery and pseudoscience they’ve been pumping out with depressing regularity. =(

  4. As always, people only have to negate the much good *real* Muslims do, yet again following blindly the media…

    I know hundreds of Muslims, none of whom support terrorism.

    I mean, that must have been a coincidence, right? Cue turning on the TV and continuing to be brainwashed.

    Go and meet an actual Islam-educated Muslim first.

    • I have no doubt that there are a proportion of muslim’s whom are great people are happy with democracy even heaven forbid enjoy living in a free western environment. However the more muslim’s and ex-muslims I have encountered have shown me a culture which generally indoctrinates people from an early age and with such a strong emphasis on family uses thoses bonds to further commit the person to a lifestyle about which they may end having very little choice. You say “real muslims” are those that inhabit Saudi Arabi & Qatar(and others) that still engage in slavery, are misogynists, practice honour killings etc… What exactly is your definition of a real muslim, from what I have seen and read thus far those that I would classify as moderates as per my first statement would appear to be well in the minority of the belief and implementation stakes. To artificially exaggerate what they have accomplished ie 20-30 vs a claim of 1000+ what does this achieve apart from distorting the facts and giving false hope.

  5. TO angelanon: You sound brainwashed. I know a few muslims too who are peaceful, but thats not the point. You are playing down this idea that only a minority of muslims are extremists. but what you have to understand or what you are intentionally ignoring it that their minority, lets say now, 0.001% of all muslims, which is a very small fraction is actually in fact a very very very very very large number!!!! We are still talking about 1.5 MILLION people who are active radical muslim extremist. This number is greater than any national standing army. So I think you are downplaying the enormity of this “minority” and only adding to the disinformation and propaganda which is denied people the proper perspective of the situation.

  6. Wow, Socialcommentarybtc, you have seriously inflated EVERYTHING you have said. Here is why: There are currently 1.5 billion Muslims, you are correct. The problem you addressed is the 1.5 million. Let’s take it all the way up to 150 million. Let’s give it an even 10% are radicals. So, let’s say that we look at all media as flawed. Really it is because stories are driven by desire, emotion, education, intelligence, and perseverance and there are multiple levels of those. So, if we give Muslims 10%, we have to give everyone 10%. That’s just the law of averages and basic anthropology. So, the number of people in American prisons/jails is 1% of the population of the United States. We know that 1 in 5 cases go unsolved in all U.S. law enforcement areas. So, we can take the number of U.S. citizens committing crime up to an even 10% too. So, there are 7 BILLION people on this earth that are under threat because if you believe extremists are going to stop if they somehow eradicate everyone else’s religion than you are a fool. EVERYONE is in danger. So, now, we globalize the 10% and take it up to the global stage. That’s 700 million people on this earth that are breaking the law or intentionally bringing harm to their fellow human beings for whatever reason floats their boat (Approx. 37 million in the U.S.). Guess how many people that leaves… 6.3 BILLION people on this planet that are NOT extremists or criminals. I don’t care if you can personally identify 1.5 million people that want to kill everyone on the Earth that isn’t Muslim. I can identify, just in the United States, 1.4 million active duty service members in America, 1.1 Million Reserve Military personnel, 1.1 million state and local Police. So, ONLY in the United States that means that the number of people defending your LIFE is 3.6 MILLION people, with a total budget of 4.8 TRILLION dollars in budgetary financing. That is total financing of all law enforcement and military in the entire United States. So, ISIS, has about 12,000 people. I high balled it, just in case. They also have 2 Billion dollars. So now, let’s do some math! For American forces against terrorism 1.3 million dollars is spent on or by each of the 3.6 Million. ISIS is 167,000 dollars per each of the 12,000. That is 85% HIGHER in defense spending than what ISIS has to spend. Let’s not forget it is entirely plausible that there are numerous groups that will not sell to ISIS. Now, to REALLY get to my point in this situation… ISIS is OUTGUNNED, OUTMANNED, AND OUTEDUCATED. This is why I say I don’t care about whether it is 1 or 1000 Muslims. As long as it was 1 Muslim, that is a Muslim that isn’t funding ISIS or any of the other Islamic extremist groups. That is 1 Muslim that isn’t going to grab an AK-47 from the hopefully soon to be dwindling stash of Saddam in Iraq, and start shooting a bunch of people randomly. That is 1 Muslim that is going to tell all of his or her fellow Muslims how they feel and why. That small crack in the solidarity of support is another added up wound to ignorance and violence that will soon take that 10% down to 9%. Then from 9% to hopefully as low as 1%. Which means that 700 Million people will only be 70 Million people (There are currently 370 Million people in the U.S.). Do you see how math works? Because I am hoping to show you that you can throw any number you want onto websites and play any game you want with them. You can make them look good when they are bad, bad when they are good, and etc… What you CAN’T do is tell anyone that doesn’t agree with you that they are stupid or ignorant or what have you. Because your 1.5 million total Muslims that you say are all extremists is a grain of sand in the Sahara Desert in comparison to the 7 BILLION people on this earth.

  7. I find it interesting & disappointing that many seem to be missing the point of the article. Its not about the head count. I’ve personally been to Norway & unlike the UK or US it’s not an immigrant nation. Its a small country of approx 5 mil predominantly native Norwegians Christians. So weather there was 20 Muslims & 200 Jews, does it change the message? No it doesn’t. Its still a message of peace & respect. The corrupt & biased media has been spreading fear of Islam for years. ISIS being a group of 30,000 fighters according to the media represent the values of 1.6 billion people. Anyone with even minimal knowledge knows that Islam, like all most religions has various sects who amongst themselves have differing beliefs/ values so how could ISIS possibly be an accurate measure of anything besides what they are- A mixed bag, misguided nuts jobs. I think that’s why Anon posts all Islam related stories not only the negative/ exaggerated propaganda the main stream has been regurgitating. Reading these comments they’ve done a great job.
