Could there be a link between Norway-based LTTE operatives and Anders Behring Breivik, who bombed the Norwegian government headquarters in Oslo and wiped out a youth group on a nearby island on July 22 killing over 80 civilians?
Responding to a query by The Island, informed sources said that the Norwegian could have had a link with the LTTEactivists in Norway.
Breivik, in his 1,518 manifesto, which was released hours before he carried out the massacre, said had felt that Europe should follow the LTTE example of expelling the Muslims from Sri Lanka. He had interpreted the expulsion of Muslims from the North in October/November 1990, by the LTTE at gun point, as a move by the government of Sri Lanka to drive out the Muslim community.
The killers manifesto also referred to the Anuradhapura massacre in 1985 and the slaughter of Muslims at the Kattankudy Mosque, in August 1990.
He had been in close contact with UK based radicals and also bought equipment from western suppliers, including Polish merchants.
During a recent visit to Colombo Israels top diplomat in New Delhi, accredited to Colombo, Mark Sofer told The Island that the LTTE had influenced those causing mayhem in the Middle East. He alleged that LTTE suicide attacks had inspired those targeting Jewish targets.
The Sri Lankan embassy in Oslo is seeking additional information and making inquiries regarding the Oslo massacre.
Political sources said that while Norway was funding Sri Lankan NGOs to promote the LTTE and a long standing settlement between Sri Lanka and the LTTE, a section of the Norwegian youth drew inspiration from LTTE terrorism.
Call for LTTE ban in Norway - May 20, 2011 - Norway must follow the European Union and proscribe the Tamil Tigers (LTTE) in the country says a Norwegian parliamentarian. Chairman of the Defence and Security committee of the opposition Conservative Party, Peter Gitmark says that it is wrong to allow the Tamil Tigers to operate in Norway.
Tamil politician escapes from Norway shooting - July 22, 2011 - Eezham Tamil youth politician of the ruling Labour party of Norway, Khamshajiny Gunaratnam, escaped indiscriminate shooting at the summer camp of the youth wing of the party, AUF, on Friday by swimming to safety from the island where the gathering took place, according to a Facebook posting by the politician, Tamilnet reported.
Thanks Tailgunner Joe.
what is LTTE?
From post #1:
...Norway must follow the European Union and proscribe the Tamil Tigers (LTTE)
lol. I guess I was looking for an L and an E, lol
Ranking Norwegian military officers and Norwegian foreign service gave covert assistance to the LTTE, if my sources are reliable. Many Norwegian fingers in that mess.
Interesting thanks for posting.
The Tamil Tigers are in no way better than any Jihadi group. They’re also the only non-muslim group, as far as I know, using suicide bombers.

re-bumping this in light of the recent suicide and weapons discovery in the dorm room in Florida. The guy’s name wasn’t exactly “James Oliver.”
