    I dont know that much about politics, but FRP is a populistic capitalist party that say one thing, and do another... Alot of their members have been in a group called Israels venner (the friends of Israel), and alot of them are very pro-Israel. FRP claims to be against immigration, but they just have a slightly more strict policy than for example the labour party.
    I guess FRP would want immigrants anyway for having manpower for jobs etc.
    FRP are a bunch of liberals, alot of their politics is about cutting down taxes on gasoline, meat, tobacco and alcohol and those kinds of things. They also want to privatise alot of government owned enterprises, and sell some out to foreigners.
    And for example they want it to cost money to borrow books from the library.

    Sadly both the large parties and the largest anti-immigration group here in
    that are against immigration here are very pro-Israel.

    Not sure if this was anywhere close to what you were wondering about

    It was helpful. The dirty secret is that cities like Oslo in social-welfare Norway have become dependent on -- or at least heavily use -- the services of an immigrant underclass. Taxi drivers, hospital and cleaning staff, catering, and so on. So it is unlikely any of the major parties (and FRP is major) will do anything serious to staunch the flow.

    FRP seems to be "neo-con": vociferously pro-Israel, vociferously anti- "radical Islam," vociferously pro- "free market," etc. It is revealing Siv Jensen attended the Bilderberg conference in 2006(?)

    Is the average Norwegian familiar with black metal music and its violent history in the country? I once spoke to a native Norwegian woman who was not by any stretch a metal fan, yet she knew quite a bit about black metal and the church burnings.

    Most people have heard of Dimmu Borgir, Satyricon and Varg Vikernes, and most people remember all the church burnings and think that Varg Vikernes is really dangerous. I dont think most youth are very familiar with what happened in the early 90's, but they know bands like Satyricon, Dimmu Borgir and bands like that.

    How do Norwegians feel about a union of Scandinavia? Sort of a modern Kalmar Union. Would this be a good or bad idea? Seems like a bad with the current state of Sweden.. but a good one regarding Denmark... or would this get rid of the Scandinavian nations unique identity from one another?

    I can only really speak for myself on the matter, but I think it would be a horrible idea. But a lesser evil when it comes to the alternatives regarding globalization. There have been some currents lately where western and northern Norwegians have sported separatist ideas, but (sadly) they don't seem very serious on the matter. I guess it can be seen as a protest against the government's tendency to favor the area around Oslo financially, altough all the bucks are made from the coast. Those are trivial problems, however.

    "White" is hardly a term commonly used in Norwegian language.

    They are widely considered a part of the norwegian cultural landscape, though I don't think many Norwegians are too familiar with their history. There was an effort from the Norwegian government to "Norwegianize" the sami population. Schooling was done in Norwegian. There even was a law saying you had to be able to writem read and speak Norwegian, and also use it on a daily basis to be allowed to buy land.

    As a reaction the word "Sami" was connected with shame, and many of the Sami population tried to hide their roots and "blend in" with Norwegians.

    Still, I believe Samis today are still sometimes looked down upon. But I guess it has it's reasons. Alcoholism is apparently common among Sami, like it is with native americans, greenlanders, aboriginals, chechens and other "broken" cultures.

    It says this spready version is called "prim" in Norsk

    Cheese spread

    If boiled for a shorter time than usual, one gets the spreadable version called prim in Norwegian (or messmör in Swedish and 'mysingur' in Icelandic). Prim had been made in Norway for a long time when Anne Hov, a farmer's wife got the idea of putting cream into the cheese. She got a good price for her new fatty cheese, and this merchandise is said to have saved the Gudbrands valley financially in the 1880s
