The number of Talkbacks here expressing Schadenfreude about the murder of the young Norwegians, associating them with Hitler Jugend and neo-nazism, and expressing support for Breivik's anti-islamic bigotry, was unbelievable. In my opinion rightwing media commentators and politicians ( like for instance Melanie Phillips and Geert Wilders) have given hatred for Islam a certain respectability. The only response to this kind of bigotry should be to deepen the mutual respect between different cultures and keep on strengthening democracy and multiculturalism. It is good to see that happen in Norway at the moment.
