Two Young Chechens Saved the Lives of 23 Teenagers in the Norway Massacre

Two Chechens Movsar Jamaev and Rustam Daudov first met on Wednesday July 19, this year on the island Utøya. They quickly became good friends, and were going to dinner, when the first shots were fired on Friday, July 22 – says on its pages the well-known Norwegian newspaper “Dagbladet”.

With the prior permission of their parents, they told the reporters of this newspaper about the terrible hours spent on the island of Utoya.

“We heard the first shots and saw a group of teenagers standing near an armed man who was shooting them at a point-blank. Three of them were shot in front of us”, – said the young Chechens. “From there the two young men ran towards the woods, pulling a group of terrified Norwegian youth, who did not know how to save themselves.” 16-year-old Norwegian said he was so frightened that he could not move. “Therefore, Movsar took my arm and dragged me into the forest” – he said. From there Movsar called his father, who gave him instructions, how to behave in a similar situation.

“I have witnessed how people were shot earlier in my country by the Russian occupiers, when I was a kid. After talking with my father, I was able to pull myself together. My dad told me that I must possess myself and that I should think not only about themselves, but also about the other children on the island. He told me that I should tried to save as many as possible. “Attack on the offender should be done properly” said dad”- says Movsar.

“The murderer, dressed in the form of a police officer, shouted to us to come to him. At first I thought to do it, until I realized that he was going to kill us. Soon, he began to shoot the children who came to him, believing that he is a policeman. He did calmly and cooldbloodedly kill defenseless children.”- said Movsar. According to his friend, Rustam, they were armed with stones, decided to stop the offender. Rustam states, that both of them with stones in their hands began to move towards Anders Breivik.

“We were maybe a meter away from him and were going to throw stones at him, but he shot one of our friends. Then we threw stones at him and ran to save our lives and the lives of other children who were still alive – said Rustam. Movsar has no doubt that he got the murderer with a stone. He says that after this killer howled and shouted at him “f***ing nigger”.

After that, the young men decided to seek and rescue the remaining children. They found a cave in the rock, where they hid terrified children (a total of 23 people), among whom was even an eight-year boy. Movsar says that he carried him on his shoulders for nearly an hour.

Then they stood on duty at the cave entrance hoping to protect children. From there, they saw several young people drowning in the water. “I could not let them drown, and swam to help them. Three times I did it, but I was totelly exhausted due to the cold water. I did not have the strength to save the boy, who was only ten feet from me. He drowned “. – Movsar said.

    lol @ all the comments starting with “…muslim…”
    Ive never been to this page before, but people assuming a religion (on 16 year old kids mind you) and makes that the most important part, are no better then the others who put race in the highest of positions.

    I havent heard this news in norwegian media, but you get sick of the nationalism and stopped watching after a few weeks. Pretty much everyone I know are also sick of 90% of the main stream news is filled with this.

    And I did know one of the victims personally and I am happy to hear this brave story.

    I might not be the biggest supporter of the norwegian political system, but I must say I were very glad how they used it. Hopefully the spirit now will lead to the MUCH needed withdrawal of any occupation we act in. Something that sickens me.

    I honestly didnt think of religion before I read the comments underneath. No person can be described from a single attribute.

    I’m assuming this young mens are muslims. But lets be honest here, whenever muslims do a heroic contribution, in the media they’re mentioned by their ethnic back-ground, just like the young english muslims who defended their properties and the properties of others from the rioters in england recently, were descripted as asians instead of muslims. As one english young muslim rightly noted, he said when a muslim does something bad, in the media he’s mentioned as a “muslim”, but when a muslim does something good, then suddenly he become “asian” in the media discourse…

  • mindy1

    Good for them 😀

  • sadia

    wow, was i living under a rock? why wasn’t this news all over??? such display of bravery and selfless act of these two young men at least deserves a mention in the ‘mainstream’ media!!

    oh yea, the media is too busy spreading Islamophobia…no time for real journalism i guess.

    May Allah bless these heroes!

  • Khushboo

    MashaAllah! We need more heroes like them.

    “No one has a greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” John 15:13

    Heroes that loved their friends and willing to lay down their lives for them!

  • Reynardine

    Let all heroes and heroines, known and unknown, praised and unpraised or even blamed, living and dead, be blessed.

  • FnD

    Wow!! There are not much feedback here!

  • KnowingTheTruth

    You won’t hear this story of Geller and Spencer and their Anti-Muslim friends. And if they did they will say that these two people did “Taqiyya” as they love to say about Muslims who do good things.

  • Nasser

    Alhumdulillah, more and more stories surfacing of muslims being humans.

  • Siberian

    I can’t help but admire those boys. Allah bless them.

    On some russian news webportal I’ve read the story of another chechen boy – Anzor Djukaev – who also happenned to be on the island Utøya on that terrible day, and was arrested by the police and held in detention for many hours on the suspicion that he was Breiwik’s collateral. The suspicion arose of the fact that during the attack Anzor got to the hideaway, but (unlike the other victims) he kept it calm and didn’t cry. Thus people thought he was attacker’s aide. I can understand the feelings of the terrified victims, who couldn’t get how a normal person can hold himself together in a situation like that. However in Chechen culture it’s forbidden for a man (or a boy) to cry for any reason – boys don’t cry! And Anzor did neither. Fortunately, he was released soon and got apologies from police officials.

  • Curly

    I read this article. I assumed two young chechens are Muslim correct?

  • AJ

    May Allah reward Rustam and Jamal for their efforts. Amin.
