July 24 2014, the police security service (PST) and Department of Justice notified the citizens of Norway about a possible terror threat against the country.

The information PST had received was reported as trustworthy and specific, and it was the Islamic State, known as ISIS, who was behind the plans. Norway was upside down, police had guns and was everywhere. Planes was called back if a passenger was suspicious, muslims handcuffs on the street and more. Seven days later the terror level went back to normal; terrorist supposedly scared of the high terror level Norway had.

Later, on august 28, information on how the terror attack was planned got released. It was supposed to be a knife massacre in huge crowds, similar to the train station massacre in the Yunnan-province in south-west China, back in march. 33 people got killed.

An islamist terror attack on Norway could’ve changed the world. Not only if it actually happened in the ski-loving country, but also if it didn’t. We go back 41 years, to 1973. The security services receives reports of a specific palestinian terror threat against Norwegian oil industry, and was supposed to happen on Slagentangen outside Tønsberg. The official statement about the threat was released to the citizens, to scare the terrorist away. Although the terrorist attack did actually happen, it was not in Norway. The terrorist had left the country, but in 1974, they were supposedly the ones capturing a ferry, outside the Shell oil refinery complex, in Singapore, where they held 5 hostage.

This is all very similar to the situation today. Norway, with their official statement, managed to scare the terrorist away. But on august 29, the British Secretary of the Interior states in a press conference that the country is under heavy terror threat. It’s already made clear that ISIS is behind this one as well. What country is next? Do we need to prepare ourselves for a time with constant terror threat in our minds? ISIS are not new devils to the world. They are former known as a part of Al Qaeda, but the latter chose to break corporation, because of ISIS mass murders of innocent people. With that in mind; we are facing a much worse threat now, than we did some years back.

You might be or might not be one of them who believe terror only can bring a country stronger and closer together. It’s not true. America is split in two  and Norway have become more racist towards people with Middle Eastern background. After the terror actions in 2011 against Norway, a whole country came together, holding roses, talking about bringing more democracy. What happened? Although Norway has been awarded five years in a row as the ‘Happiest country in the world’ by Forbes, clear signs of increased racism is happening. The Norwegian newspaper Nettavisen released an article about Mohammed had become more popular in the capital  than normal Norwegian boys names, as Jan and Per, and the reception the article got was not pretty. The comment listed below was all up voted, some of them with more than 200 up votes.

“Scary. Frightening to think that our children is going to grow up here.”

“Interesting? Tragic”

“Super interesting. Norway is closing in on 6 million population. We, ethnic Norwegians, soon has to give the central part of the east away to immigrant.”

In respons to the comment above, a Norwegian says he wants independence in the west. There is also a user who is predicting the future of Norway, where immigrants from Middle East is the majority and the Sharia law is implemented.

How close to the truth are they? Extremely far. Approximately only 1 of 30 people in Norway have Middle Eastern background, which is a lot less than most countries in the world. It just shows how much terrorist have impacted a country. Fear for the worst, a constant fear about what is on the horizon. And it will last, even though muslims themselves walks in demonstration in Oslo, against ISIS. Norway is more damaged by the terror attack than the country realize, even though the attacker was ethnic Norwegian, he had a message to muslims and the people are jumping more and more on his train.

Terror has it’s ugly effect. A terror attack might happen to a country, and they can balance back up, but what happens if there is a second one? Time will tell.
