Alleged Claim for Oslo Attacks

Posted: 22nd July 2011 by Will McCants in Europe

This was posted by Abu Sulayman al-Nasir to the Arabic jihadi forum, Shmukh, around 10:30am EST (thread 118187).  Shmukh is the main forum for Arabic-speaking jihadis who support al-Qaeda.  Since the thread is now inaccessible (either locked or taken down), I am posting it here.  I don’t have time at the moment to translate the whole thing but I translated the most important bits on twitter.

Update: Abu Sulayman has now issued a retraction, stating clearly that “Helpers” was not involved in the operation and that his statement was not an official statement. He says those who carried out the attacks “must surely be known to all.”

Update2: “Surely known to all” apparently means a right-wing Norwegian extremist who likes World of Warcraft and Dexter.

الحمد لله ناصر عباده الموحدين ومذل اهل الشرك والكفر اجمعين والصلاة والسلام على نبينا محمد خاتم النبيين وعلى اله وصحبه اجمعين وبعد
قال تعالى : (فَقَاتِلْ فِي سَبِيلِ اللّهِ لاَ تُكَلَّفُ إِلاَّ نَفْسَكَ وَحَرِّضِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ عَسَى اللّهُ أَن يَكُفَّ بَأْسَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ وَاللّهُ أَشَدُّ بَأْساً وَأَشَدُّ تَنكِيلاً) [النساء : 84]
فها قد وصلت دول اوروبا رسالة اخرى من المجاهدين واثبات اخر لدول اوربا ان المجاهدين لن يقفوا مكتوفي الايدي تجاه حربهم ضد الاسلام والمسلمين.
واليوم قد تم استهداف النرويج لتكون درسا وعبرة لباقي دول اوروبا وقد سبق ان هددنا منذ غزوة ستوكهولم بمزيد من العمليات وقد طالبنا دول اوروبا بسحب جيوشها من ارض افغانستان وايقاف حربها ضد الاسلام والمسلمين ونكرر تحذيرنا مجددا لدول اوروبا ونقول لهم نفذوا مطالب المجاهدين فما ترونه ليس سوى البداية والقادم اكثر من ذلك.
اما عن اسباب استهداف النرويج فهي كثيرة اهمها مشاركتها في احتلال افغانستان والاساءة لنبينا الكريم محمد(صلى الله عليه وسلم).
فالحمد لله ان مكن لعباده الموحدين ..وندعو الله ان يحفظ اخواننا ومجاهدينا في كل مكان.
سبحانك اللهم وبحمدك اشهد ان لا اله الا انت استغرك واتوب اليك.

ابو سليمان الناصر
من انصار الجهاد العالم

    I’m from Norway and I consider myself pretty lucky to say that I quit my work 1 hour before the explosion began, and I work in Oslo.

    Also, however mad I am at the people who did this, I still find it wrong to blame all the Muslim for what happened. There are innocent Muslims there who shouldn’t get blamed for what happened.

    Imagine if you were a innocent Muslim and got blamed for everything your stupid ass brainwashed Muslims did?

    I do strongly believe this is Al Quaida work, but I cannot fucking understand why they sellected Norway as a target?

    A copy in English, by Google translate

    Praise be to God Nasser slaves combined and humiliating the people of shirk and kufr companions, prayer and peace upon our Prophet Muhammad, the Seal of the Prophets, his family and companions and after
    The Almighty said: (then fight for God but do not cost yourself and rouse the believers may be that Allah keeps those who disbelieve and Allah is more powerful and in punishment) [women: 84]
    Here have reached the countries of Europe is another message from the militants and further proof of the countries of Europe that the Mujahideen will not stand idly towards their war against Islam and Muslims.
    Today has been targeting Norway to be a lesson and a lesson to the rest of Europe has already threatened us since the invasion of Stockholm more operations has asked European countries to withdraw their armies from the land of Afghanistan and stop its war against Islam and Muslims, and we repeat our warning again to the countries of Europe and tell them carried out the demands of the mujahideen, what you see is only the beginning and the next more.
    The reasons for the targeting of Norway there are many of the most important of their participation in the occupation of Afghanistan and the abuse of our Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).
    Praise God that enabled slaves to the combined .. and pray to God to save our brothers and our fighters everywhere.
    Glory and praise God I bear witness that no god but You Astgrk and I repent to you.

  35. […] Att gärningsmannen är farlig är uppenbart, men den eventuellt nazistiska ideologin är idag knappast ett hot mot vår demokrati och vårt sätt att leva. Det var det för ca 70 år sedan, men är det inte idag för att vi bekämpade den och har fortsatt att belysa och granska den och dess brott mot mänskligheten. Det är min bestämda uppfattning att en annan religiös ideologi är det farligaste hotet mot vår frihet idag, nämligen islam. Terrordåd som detta nu i Oslo hade alla inslag av muslimsk terror, och det var naturligt att misstänka att det var just ett muslimsk terrordåd. Det var naturligt, logiskt och troligt speciellt med tanke på de hot som uttalats mot Norge pga. Deras deltagande i Afghanistan och tidigare kontroverser vad gäller Muhammed-teckningarna. Islamisten Mullah Krekar har nyligen åtalats för sådana hot och jihadister på ett känt forum (Shmukh, lösenord krävs) gladdes över attackerna. I ett forumlägg tog också en islamistisk organisaton på sig ansvaret, för att senare dra tillbaka det. […]
