Rising popularity for anti-Islam group
by Michael Sandelson and Lyndsey Smith
A Norwegian group called "Stop Islamisation of Norway" (SIAN) has doubled membership levels in the last two years, its representatives claim.
"A major burden"
The group, who's most active membership is located in Rogaland, has also been awarded a government concession to transmit on Radio Kos in Sandnes, western Norway. It alleges Internet radio capacity had to be increased from 25,000 to 200,000 listeners recently because of popularity.
Merete Hodne and Kjersti Margrethe Addehaid Gilje told NRK from Bryne, a small town in Rogaland County, "We have a duty to our country to preserve our Christian values, and not least to protect our children against the terrible, evil forces of Islam."
