Surrounded by an imam and a bishop, Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg attended a ceremony in Oslo’s main mosque at 1330 GMT.
“We were victims of an attack on the heart of democracy,” Stoltenberg said of the worst attacks in the Nordic nation’s peacetime history, targeting Stoltenberg’s ruling Labour Party. “The result was a strengthened democracy. A tighter unity.”
“We want to be one community. Across faith, ethnicity, gender and rank,” Stoltenberg said...
“Seeing the imam and the priest walking together from the church was a mighty image — the strongest message that can be sent to counter the forces we have been witness to,” Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Stoere said.
I admire the people of Norway! They are good people, very open, and very inclusive!
Stoltenberg urges the nation to embrace freedom! He wants his people to respond by embracing democracy and freedom.
He added: "We have memorials in churches and in mosques, in parliament and in the government headquarters, on the streets and in squares … Evil has brought out the best in us. Hatred engenders love."
