For Scandanavians, not all terror victims are equal

The Israeli ambassador in Sweden made comparisons between the jihadists who were released and Anders Breivik. And how did Norwegians react? Very horrifically (Hat tip: Commentary):
Israel’s ambassador to Sweden is drawing fire in Scandinavia after comparing Palestinian prisoners released earlier this week to a Norwegian terrorist who killed 77 people in 2011.

Isaac Buchman told Swedish Radio on Tuesday that Israel’s freeing of 26 Palestinian prisoners as part of an agreement to launch peace talks was akin to Norway freeing Anders Breivik, a far-right activist who set off a bomb in Oslo and shot up a summer camp on a nearby island in one of the worst terror attacks in the Continent’s history.

“The horrors that [the Palestinian prisoners] did, to put it in a Scandinavian understanding, it’s like what happened in Norway with Breivik,” Buchman told the station, according to the Swedish news outlet The Local. ”Imagine if Breivik was released as a gesture of some sort.”

However, survivors of the Utoya island massacre and family members of Breivik’s victims cried foul over the comparison, saying the Palestinians, many of whom were convicted on terror charges after killing civilians, were part of a larger cause.

“The comparison does not make sense,” Bjørn Ihler, who survived the camp shooting, told The Local. “Breivik was a solo terrorist whose actions were based purely on an unreal situation. The situation in the Middle East is very different. There is a real fight for Palestinian freedom going on.”

Trond Blattman, who lost his son in the camp shooting, called the comparison “ridiculous.”
It's regrettable that even people who lost their beloved to that piece of filth in Norway look the other way when Israelis are victim to the same mentalities. Breivik said he was influenced by jihadism, and even the Times of Israel acts as though he's a "right-wing extremist"? Terrible. This kind of mindset may even lurk in Britain.

No wonder I don't ever want to visit Norway.
