Love will prevail

I have no words. What has happened in Paris is just despicable, and any act of terrorism is a coward´s act towards innocent people. And let us not forget the killings of innocent in Baghdad where over 30 people were killed in terrorist attacks, and in Beirut where 43 people were killed. Just because it isn´t happening here doesn´t mean it isn´t happening. It also shows that Muslims were among the victims, and extremists were the terrorists.

In times like this it is more important than ever that we stand together united against terrorism, violence, extremism and everything that threats love, democracy, peace and humanity.

If one man can show so much hate, think how much love we could show together.” Helle Gannestad after the Utøya shooting massacre in 2011.

Jeg er målløs. Det som har skjedd i Paris er helt forferdelig, og enhver terrorhandling er en feig handling mot uskyldige mennesker. Og la oss ikke glemme drapene på uskyldige mennesker i Bagdad der over 30 mennesker ble drept i terrorangrep, og i Beirut der 43 mennesker ble drept i selvmordsbombing. Bare fordi det ikke skjer her betyr ikke at det ikke skjer. Det viser også at muslimer var blant ofrene, og ekstremister var terroristene.

I tider som dette er det viktigere enn noen gang at vi står sammen sammen mot terrorisme, vold, ekstremisme og alt som er en trussel mot kjærlighet, demokrati, fred og menneskeverd.

“Når en mann kan forårsake så mye ondt – tenk hvor mye kjærlighet vi kan skape sammen.” Helle Gannestad, etter Utøya skyting massakren i 2011.
