Norway mosque worshipper recounts encounter with gunman

A worshipper recounted on Sunday (August 11) how he wrestled with a gunman who fired shots into a mosque in Baerum, Norway on Saturday (August 10), in what is now being treated as a potential terrorist attack.

Translated from Dutch NOS TV today:

The 21-year-old man suspected of committing an attack on a mosque in Norway claims he is innocent. He also denies having murdered his 17-year-old step-sister.

The lifeless body of the young woman was found in the man’s house after the attack. Furthermore, the man refuses to talk to police, his lawyer said.

Later today he will be in court. That session takes place behind closed doors.

Safety precautions

On Saturday a terrorist with shotguns entered the Al-Noor mosque in Bærum, near Oslo. He fired four shots. A person was slightly injured … The suspect was quickly overpowered, eg, by a 65-year-old mosque visitor.

According to correspondent Dirk Evers, that was no coincidence. The mosque had taken measures since the racist attack on two mosques in the New Zealand city of Christchurch, where 51 people died. …

Inspired by other terrorists

Yesterday it was announced that the Norwegian police suspect the man of attempted terror. He has right-wing extremist ideas and is said to have announced his attack on the small online forum Endchan.

He may have been inspired by the Christchurch terrorist. He placed his extreme right-wing manifesto on the controversial forum 8chan. The perpetrator of the racist attack in El Paso last weekend (22 dead) also placed a similar manifesto on 8chan.

The suspect is believed to be Philip Manshaus; an admirer of World War II Norwegian nazi leader Vidkun Quisling. Quisling helped the German occupiers to deport Norwegian Jews (and Norwegian Sami, whom Quisling also considered to be an ‘inferior race’) to death camps.

POLICE INVESTIGATING NORWAY MOSQUE SHOOTING AS TERROR An attack by a gunman at a Norwegian mosque on Saturday will be investigated as a possible act of terrorism. The suspected shooter at the al-Noor Islamic Centre near the Norwegian capital had expressed far-right, anti-immigrant views online, assistant chief of police Rune Skjold said. [Reuters]

While only three people were present at the time of the attack, more than a dozen had been praying in the mosque for the Eid al-Adha Islamic holiday only 10 minutes earlier. Had Manshaus struck a short time before, a large number of people may have been killed. Manshaus is also suspected of murdering his 17-year-old adopted Chinese stepsister, whose body was found at the family home on Saturday. … Both Tarrant and Manshaus cited Breivik as a role model. Manshaus’ Instagram account contains three pictures: two of himself, and one of Breivik performing the Nazi salute in court: here.
