Utoya - a not so innocent youth camp?

The Guardian was quick to pounce on a remark by Glenn Beck in which he wondered what the meaning of a "political youth camp" actually was in Utoya, Norway and might it be something like the Hitler-Youth.

The Guardian promptly skewed this into a headline saying:
Glenn Beck likens Norwegian dead to Hitler youth

So what was REALLY going on on Utoya Island?

It is dated last Thursday, 21st July ... the day before the massacre at Utoya.

The picture is of Norwegian Foreign Minister Gahre-Store on a visit to the AUF (Workers' Youth League) 'campers' at Utoya.  After being escorted around the camp by AUF leader Eskil Pedersen, the campers demand a boycott of Israel and that Norway recognize the Palestinian state.  

To which the minister reportedly replied, to cheers from the 'campers': The Palestinians must have their own state, the occupation must end, the wall must be demolished and it must happen now.

Whilst this doesn't change the fact that this was a monstrous slaughter of innocent kids, one has to ask who is this Pederson guy and to what lengths has his Workers Youth League gone to incite impressionable kids with such hatred of Israel fuelled by lies and propaganda about deprivation in Gaza? 

Here's a picture of Norwegian students in a mock Palestinian aid boat bearing the sign Opphev Blokkaden Gaza - Unlock the Gaza Blockade. 

Footnote:  Earlier this month Gaza opened its newest and grandest shopping mall. See the Gulf News report and picture gallery HERE
