First, the PM is speaking at a time when the knee-jerk “it has to be Muslims” response was still operating. This shows just how far Islamophobia has spread.

Second, despite the Islamophobia, the PM’s response is to insist on maintaining what Norway stands for: Peace and Democracy. Just imagine how different the world would be if US leaders, and GW in particular, had opted for this sort of response after the attacks on September 11, 2001, and not the we’re gonna bomb, jail and torture the the bad guys into submission.
