From Aftenposten, with thanks to the Norwegian Kafir:
Carl I. Hagen, outspoken leader of Norway’s populist Progress Party (Fr.P), wants the government to consider tougher measures against fringe Muslim groups in the country. The Fr.P raises the issue in connection with a parliamentary White Paper on security, and also wants approval procedures for imams in Norway.
“If extremist tendencies emerge we must be able to do something. We must be prepared that what has happened in the Netherlands can also happen in Norway,” Hagen told Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK)….
“This is the stigmatization of very large groups. Hagen mixes immigration policy into the discussion of overall security and how Norwegian society shall be secured against terror. But having readiness to meet terrorists does not mean that we shall stigmatize and monitor all Muslims in Norway. That is simply loathsome,” Nybakk told NRK.
Well, all right, Nybakk. But please show us where the dividing line is within the Islamic community between genuine moderates and radicals, and I will readily agree that it would be “loathsome” to monitor all. Otherwise, should law enforcement officials not call upon Muslims who genuinely oppose jihad violence to help identify radicals within the Islamic community? And if they will not do so, what alternative is there to monitoring all mosque sermons, etc.?
