It just keeps coming, the propaganda. A new wave every day. Poured out by ideologues determined to flood the truth – to drown it out – in wave after wave of lies.
"Norway isn't becoming less Norwegian because it's changing," a man named Salimi cheerfully reassured Aftenposten the other day. Salimi – who came to Norway 37 years ago and was in on the founding of SOS Racism, the Anti-Racist Center, and various other enterprises and activities, including a well-known annual food festival in Oslo – described today's Norway with enthusiasm as a place where immigrants and natives are gradually and peacefully adapting to one another, each embracing the new and mysterious aspects of each other's cultures. Although "extremist Islam and Islamophobia" represent threats to these marvelous developments, noble and well-meaning Muslims, Christians, and Jews, working together on the basis of "shared universal values," are striving with increasing success to forge a harmonious multicultural society founded on mutual respect and acceptance.
Blah, blah, blah.
