Our Norwegian correspondent The Observer has translated an article about a new “ring of peace” scheduled to take place next Saturday in Oslo.
The translator includes this prefatory note:
You have by now no doubt heard about the “Ring of Peace”, the taqiyya stunt that took place last Saturday in front of the Jewish Synagogue in Oslo, where two feathers somehow were able to morph into a dozen chickens. That is, a dozen or so Muslims holding hands in a show of “solidarity “with the Jewish congregation were reported by various media outlets as 1300 Muslims forming a ring around the synagogue.
Well, what do you know? When you thought things could not possibly get any weirder, all of a sudden they do.
After reading this article from NRK (Norwegian State Broadcaster), we now know that another “peace initiative” will go ahead next weekend, this time in front of one of the biggest mosques in the country.
The funny thing is, the mosque in question — Central Jamaat Ahle Sunnat — was in the media headlines just a few years back when, lo and behold, the imam and chairman of said Mosque lambasted the “scheming” Jews for running the media and giving Muslims a bad name, plus of course controlling pretty much everything else that goes on in this world.
So this is the mosque, and these are the views that the organizers of this “peace ring” want to protect against “hatred, vile accusations, and Islamophobia” spread by those nasty Norwegians that keep welcoming them into the country with open arms and bowed heads, and who keep contributing financially for the upkeep and running of their mosques, not to mention substantial and very generous welfare contributions for the mosques’ members.
Maybe we should rename the event and call it “Dorks of the Ring” because the organizers clearly have their heads firmly embedded in Middle Earth.
You know what I think this self-promotion trend by the chic do-gooders, because that’s basically what it is, is really going to take off and pop up all over the world. I’m sure that soon we’ll see members of the Westboro Baptist Church form a peace ring in front of the headquarters of the Gay and Lesbian Swingers society in NYC, and the Alabama branch of the Ku Klux Klan will probably form a peace ring in front of the headquarters of the Black Panthers in San Francisco, in order to generate some much-needed positive PR, and I’m sure the media will write glowing reports about the benign and altruistic nature of their endeavours.

A Ring of peace around Oslo mosque
A week after a ring of peace was formed in front of the Jewish synagogue in Oslo; another similar event is due to take place in front of one of the mosques in the capital next Saturday afternoon.
So far, more than 300 people have signed up for the event, according to TV2 [Norwegian TV station].
“We are a group of fellow human beings, who on account of the increased fear and polarization in society, are going to highlight that we do not view Muslims as a threat, but rather as an enrichment for Norwegian society,” the organizers write on their official Facebook page.
The event has been given the name “The Solidarity Ring for Muslims” and is scheduled to go ahead on Saturday at 16.30 in front of the mosque, Central Jamaat Ahle Sunnat in Motzfeldtsgate [Motzfeldts Street].
In a Facebook post the organizers; Solveig Staal, Kristian Flem, Johanna Engen and Gitte Michelle write that Muslims are a vulnerable minority in Norway.
“As ethnic Norwegians, we do not accept all the hatred [about Muslims — translator] that is being disseminated in our name. In this time of fear and polarization, we feel that it is more important than ever to stand together in a show of solidarity. We believe in, and we are going to highlight the willingness of humans to live together in peace and to respect each other regardless of religion, ethnicity and identity,” the organizers write.
Last Saturday an estimated 1,300 people showed up and formed a peace ring in front of the Jewish synagogue in Oslo.
