OSLO

There has been a rush to judgement in connection with the Oslo tragedy.  Now that the possibility that the act was the work of Islamic groups has been excluded I would merely say this:  Norway is an orderly and stable democratic country.  That will not change if the tragedy is the work of a neo Nazi or far right group as some are suggesting.  Nor will it change if, as at the moment seems more likely, it is the work of an angry and deranged individual.  In the latter case there is a limited amount that any society however peaceful and orderly can do to guard itself against such people.  At this moment on this day further analysis or judgement about what happened is out of place.
