Norway party to seek ban on Islamic call to prayer

Sunday, april 29, 2018

Norway’s anti-immigration Progress Party, part of the ruling two-party coalition, is set to vote on banning the Muslim call to prayer in Norway when it meets for its national meeting this weekend. The proposal is aimed to counter alleged plans by some mosques in Norway to begin issuing the Islamic call to worship, as has been allowed at two mosques in neighbouring Sweden.

“In several places in the country have now established regulations under which mosques have permission to issue the call to prayer over loudspeakers,” claims the local party in Buskerud county, west of Oslo, which made the proposal.

“A great many people perceive this as annoying and inappropriate. In Norway we have freedom of religion, which should also include the right not to be exposed to public calls to prayer.” The party’s former leader Carl Hagen presented a proposal for a similar ban in 2000.

But in the past, the Ministry of Justice has concluded that such a ban would be contrary to Article 9 of the European Convention on Human Rights, the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion.

The party’s immigration policy spokesman, Jon Helgheim told the Vårt Land newspaper that he was not concerned with whether the law was permissible under the Convention.

“I don’t give a toss what human rights provisions say in this case,” he said. “What I care about is that people get peace and quiet in their neighbourhoods, and that means not being disturbed by the call to prayer. If there are conflicting provisions in the Convention on Human Rights, I simply don’t care, because it’s completely stupid.”

Vårt Land said it had managed to find no actual examples of mosques in Norway that are planning to begin issuing the call.

My comment on this is:

Islam has no cultural tradition in Norway. A small minority tries to get rights that the majority do not want. Call to prayers, nikab and burka are not something we want in Norway. It is connected to an Islamic state and we have not arrived there yet. We must see that Norwegian traditions are maintained and minorities do not get a “central” power and get fit into the public space. I totally condemn Islam in public Norway.

Jobseeker: ‘I hope I get to slaughter all of you’

Thursday, october 1, 2015

A twenty-year-old Norwegian man sent a series of job applications in which he praised mass killer Anders Breivik and threatened to blow up his prospective employers.

The man, who unsurprisingly was not invited for any interview, has been charged by police and will appear in court next week. According to Norwegian web news site ABCnyheter, the man made his first threats in an application for a job at Akershus University Hospital.

In the middle of his application, the man wrote: “Damn racists. I hope I get to slaughter all of you soon. It’s not so fucking strange that Anders Behring Breivik became a terrorist in Norway.” After failing to get that job, he applied for a job at a local council in Oslo.

“What should I do?” he wrote in the application. “Yes, I tell you what I’ll do. I’ll blow you all to bits. Bomb the crap out of you all (…) Long live Anders Behring Breivik.” Again, the man was not offered a position.

He then uploaded his CV to the Norwegian Labour and Welfare Administration’s (NAV) website. The CV included the phrases “I will get my revenge,”  “Death to all NAV dictators”, and “Long live the Islamic State”.

The man’s defence lawyer Bjørn Rudjord told Norway’s TV2 broadcaster that his client planned to plead guilty to making the threats, but hoped to be able to explain that he had been feeling frustrated at the time.

Background :
Anders Behring Breivik killed 77 people in two separate attacks in 2011, by placing a bomb in the government quarters in Oslo and shooting 69 people at a political youth camp.

My comment on this is:

We can see more of such litigation in the future. Muslims now make their religious content public. Sharia law comes to the surface. Norwegian values are now put to the test, and we will get the result of the trial in Oslo’s high court. It may take a while because Norwegian courts are slow in the process of prosecution. I am against all forms of Islamic influence in Norway. They may have their religion, but it is private and NOT public.

BEDS: 1400 in Elder Limbo

Tuesday, May 1, 2018

A new survey reveals that 1420 Norwegian elderly citizens can’t enter nursing homes due to a lack of space.

The Norwegian Directorate of Health (NDH) released results of a nation-wide, municipal survey reflecting eligible Norwegian citizens seeking nurse-assisted living but denied care due to lack of nursing home vacancies.

Åse Michaelsen, Senior & Public Health Minister released statement, saying; “I’m pleased that, for the first time, we now have a national overview of people on waiting lists for entry to nursing homes . These lists will provide elderly care givers and their relatives predictability and security.’

LONG-TERM PLAN
“It’s important that we can now track the progress of waiting list patients over time. We want full transparency about the situation in the municipalities. Using waiting lists helps give municipalities better overview of space requirements,and to help in long term / short term planning,” said Michaelsen.

Per said NDH survey, April 15th saw Norway’s townships forward their ‘waiting list’ data of qualified patients suffering needed assistance.

405 out of 422 municipalities responded to the survey; response rate of 96%
– representing 98.8% of Norway’s population.

ALMOST HALF OF NORWAY
The NDH report summation of municipal elderly ‘waiting list’ data reveals that almost half of Norway’s municipalities, 44%, see citizens awaiting admission to long-term, assisted health care but unable to do so due to lack of space.

The NDH report also reveals that of 1420 pending, long-term patients; 457 souls are currently waiting while living within their own homes.

The Directorate of Health intends to review 2018’s municipal survey and determine if modifications or clarifications are required before the next pending-patient survey.

The Norwegian Directorate of Health is organised under both the Ministry of Health and The Ministry of Labour.

My comment on this is:

This is not good for a nation that has over $1 trillion in sovereign wealth fund. We treat older people in an unworthy way. They do not get nutritionally rich foods and do not have activities that give them a good life. They helped make Norway a rich country, but in their old age they only get the absolute minimum of services. We have a level of elderly care comparable to developing countries and countries with high sovereign debt. I’m not looking forward to getting old in this country.

Our beautiful homeland that is not so beautiful

Monday, April 23

More than 149,900 seniors in Norway are poor. They have so low income that they can not afford a hot meal every day. The minimum pension is NOK 173,204. The EU’s poverty line for Norway was 216,000 in 2014. At the same time, we see that the gap between minimum pensioners and wage recipients increases.

Nearly 10 percent of people between 18 and 67 years were on disability benefits in 2016. The new figures from Statistics Norway. A total of 331 100 people living in Norway were disabled in the National Insurance Scheme in 2016. Of these, many are so low income that they do not have basic services such as dentist, doctor and other things like going to a cinema or eating at a reasonable restaurant.

So there is a lot of wrong in rich Norway. Many sick people do not get expensive medicine. The health service is inadequate and people die in hospital corridors because there are no rooms. So we have the not so good here in the Kingdom of Norway.

My comment on this is:

With more than 1 trillion in the oil fund, it is strange that the authorities do not show more interest to those who have the minimum rates of economic benefits. They must be suppressed and not given any financial freedom. You must not get sick in this country. You have to work to live here. We sick must live at a minimum and do not have good prospects because the government will not upgrade the benefits to a level that is worthy.
