- Talk with your children about the 22. July

MUNICH (Dagbladet): - Yes, it should. Both out of respect for those who were killed, and because this actually is the most momentous event of our time, " says Seierstad to Dagbladet.

To the children have to tell everything the way it was, of course, judged by their age. It takes parents out of when it is suitable for their children. When I speak at high schools, I take point of departure in where the main characters in the book was when they were at the same age - both the victims and the perpetrator, she continues.

- A political terrorist

In Munich on Friday evening, she participates in a panelsamtale about 22.July and extremism, with prime minister Erna Solberg, who is in the sørtyske the city in connection with the annual sikkerhetskonferansen.

Seierstad says "One of us", the book she wrote about the terrorist and the terrorist attack in 2011, will be received in different ways in the united STATES and Europe.

IN the united STATES must people remember about what happened, unless they follow very well with. It is 7,5 years ago and a lot has happened since then. In Europe, the matter is different, he is a name most people know about, and most people know what he stands for, " says Seierstad.

- For Norway, it is a trauma, a grief, a pain, but also a completely concrete attack carried out by a political terrorist, and who thus are treated like it. I think the settlement has been wide and important, and it continues, " she.


The Norwegian stjernereporteren and writer who resides currently in the united STATES, where she is writing a book about american society under president Trump.

Still, it is close to the daily that the Norwegian readers to contact her about the 22. July-the book, where she, among other things, uses a lot of space to explain what may have created the terrorist Anders Behring Breivik.

In Norway we lived still in trauma when my book came out two years after the incident. Many have not had the energy to read it now. Abroad turned it down more as a shock. The sequence of events was not known in the same way as it had been in Norway through a broad press coverage, a thorough trial and a thorough commission report, " says Seierstad.

She will still keep good contact with the families of the young people that she wrote most about in the book, in particular the families of Bano Rashid, Simon, Sabo, and Anders Kristiansen. In addition, held a conference in private she in among with Lisbeth Røyneland during the work with the movie "22JULY".

- the Ideas live on

While the terrorist is defused and kept behind lock and turn, shielded from society, turn Seierstad stated that Breivik's ideas existed before him and will exist after him.

"In 2012 were the opinions of Anders Behring Breivik is seen as extreme" Dagbladet Plus

- It is in essence fascism mixed with different varieties of far-right extremism. Many of the ideas, his is pretty mainstream among these groups.

- the Rests of groups are you thinking of then?

I think of groups far out at the right edge and extreme environments. And the ideas that are reminiscent of Breivik's are the ones that deal with immigration, the hatred against islam and muslims and the hatred against the so-called liberal elites, who according to them has destroyed the West, by allowing immigration.

- Admiring them as orcs

- the Tone of debate on social media is occasionally hard, with accusations and words, which in some cases may remind us of the rhetoric that the terrorist even applied. How shall we meet such utterances?

I admire them as orcs. For me such forums pure research. I'm just going into in connection with the books I work with, and not to discuss or try to change someone's views, " says Seierstad.

prime Minister Erna Solberg goes not even of the way to challenge the nettroll on their own Facebook pages and otherwise.

- We, who are politicians and have been for awhile, has got thicker skin. We are used to being yelled at. In addition, we have a network and a support system, " says Solberg to the Newspaper.

She thinks it's all the more reason to take the hate speech and trolling seriously.

- There is a danger that people will not participate in the social debate. Many young people who believe something about a omtåelig theme, suddenly a whole hatkobbel in fleisen on social media, " says the prime minister.


the Conversation in the house of literature in Munich on Friday revolved around extremism in a broad sense, also radical islam and the threat from fremmedkrigere and ICE.

According to the PST is around 40 "Norwegian" IS-a child born in or taken to Syria, could the Newspaper to tell in the previous week. The left-profile Abid Raja said in an interview with the newspaper that he thinks the Uk should bring these kids home, something the Progress party, has objected to – not least because the party believes it is unclear how this will happen.

Seierstad who has written the book "Two sisters," about the Norwegian fremmedkrigere in Syria, believes the issue raises a number of moral dilemmas.

- To not take the kids is brutal, but there are many children who suffer and who do not get to come to Norway.

To take the children, but not parents are also brutal, but Child does this regularly by neglect. To take all of the home is possible, but the follow-up is very expensive. All the adults must be right, and in prison, many will have to be monitored afterwards and all need follow-up, " she says and continues:

Will fetch the ICE-children home to us

We should either pick all or none. Thus, children with parents or no. To just take the kids have a lot of unpredictable consequences. If we then should get them or not, I think should depend in part of how many people there are to talk about. Ten people are manageable. Fifty is extremely costly and will be able to provide fertile ground for an environment of ICE veterans here at home.

- ICE have lost the shine

Seierstad believes the fascination that some young Norwegian muslims the grip of ICE, just read your own.

- ICE have lost the luster for teens. Who will be on the taperlaget? The propaganda a few years back was massive. Video commercials, tension, tough soldiers with the wind in their hair. For many, it could provide a sense of meaning, unity, and power - for a while.

She does not have even contact with someone who is staying in the ICE-zone now, and responds as follows when Dagbladet asks if we should be concerned for a specific period of fremmedkrigere:

- I trust that the PST does its job and monitor them as they should.
