    The man accused of killing at least 76 people in a shooting massacre and car bombing in Norway had been on an intelligence watch list since March, according to reports. The Norwegian newspaper VG Nett claims Anders Behring Breivik had been put on the list after illegally buying large amount of chemicals online from a Polish retailer. Sky’s Ian Woods said the Norwegian intelligence service had not acted on the information about because they did not believe it was “relevant.” In his first court appearance since the horrific attacks on Friday, Breivik admitted he was responsible but pleaded not guilty....

    My prayers go out to the people of Norway and all of those affected by the vicious murders of Anders Breivik. My intention is not to make less of what happened in Norway, but to explain that his murderous actions were not of the teachings of Christianity. The following commentary and quotes briefly look at some of Breiviks positions in his own words against the charge that he was a Christian; much less a fundamentalist Christian. Also, keep in mind that those who have claimed Breivik as being a fundamentalist Christian seem to be using the term as an undefined...
  • Norway killer is sane, yet utterly mad

    07/25/2011 4:34:57 AM PDT · by Architeuthis Neb · 18 replies ^ | July 23, 2011 | Norway killer
    Background: In Breivik's manifesto he conceives a decades-long war between "cultural conservatives" with "Justiciar Knights" as their champions, and the evil alliance of European Islamists and multiculturalists. In the midst of the terrorist-training-manual portion of his manifesto (which generally makes its Al-Qaeda counterpart look amateurish), he contemplates acquiring WMDs from Middle Eastern Islamists with the rationale that they might desire the deportation of European Muslims as a means to enhance their own power. This scheme is humdrum compared to what comes next: "Assuming we will ever seek common ground, which is unlikely at best, the problem will be the authentication...

    The relief–not to say glee–with which many liberals greeted the news that the Oslo mass murderer was a “tall, blond Norwegian” was palpable. Liberals pilloried those who ostensibly leaped to the conclusion, in the first minutes after the massacre began, that it was probably the work of Islamic jihadists. Scott noted earlier such attacks on Jennifer Rubin.As far as I know, liberals haven’t attacked me for the post I did while the attacks were in progress. But what I wrote was, I think, typical: The perpetrators of these attacks have not yet been identified, but they likely were Muslim terrorists....

    Often the Left is so predictable. While Norway mourns the deaths of the 92 (so far) shooting victims, kook bloggers at FireDogLake, Democratic Underground, and elsewhere are already labelling the alleged killer to be "right wing." This meme appears to have started with a comment made by a Norwegian political science professor who speculated that the shooter might be "right wing."

    Anders Behring Breivik, who according to his lawyer has admitted his role in the mass murder of at least 93 people in an atrocious but necessary act, could if found guilty be imprisoned beyond the countrys 21-year maximum sentence, according to a Norwegian prosecutor. But to keep him in jail for the rest of his life, in the countrys famously comfortable prison system, would be unheard of in the peaceful, egalitarian country of five million people, said Carol Sandbye, a lawyer who works in Norways office of public prosecutions. She said the countrys General Civil Penal Code gives the...

    OSLO, Norway (AP) -- Anders Behring Breivik said he was a boy when his life's path began to turn. It was during the first Gulf War, when a Muslim friend cheered at reports of missile attacks against American forces. "I was completely ignorant at the time and apolitical but his total lack of respect for my culture (and Western culture in general) actually sparked my interest and passion for it," the suspect in Norway's bombing and mass shooting wrote in his 1,500-page manifesto.

    (Reuters) - Anders Behring Breivik wants to tell Norway and the World why he killed at least 93 people in a bomb attack and shooting rampage when he appears in court on Monday, his lawyer said. Calling himself a crusader against a tide of Islam in a rambling 1,500-page online manifesto, the 32-year-old mass murderer wants the opportunity to explain actions he deemed "atrocious, but necessary". Lawyer Geir Lippestad said his client had admitted to Friday's shootings at a Labor youth camp and a bomb that killed seven people in Oslo's government district, but that he denies any criminal guilt....

    Terrorist proclaimed himself 'Darwinian,' not 'Christian' Norwegian's manifesto shows Breivik not religious, having no personal faith WASHINGTON A review of Anders Behring Breivik's 1,500-page manifesto shows the media's quick characterization of the Norwegian terrorist as a "Christian" may be as incorrect as it was to call Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh one. Breivik was arrested over the weekend, charged with a pair of brutal attacks in and near Oslo, Norway, including a bombing in the capital city that killed 7 and a shooting spree at a youth political retreat on the island of Utoya that killed more than 80...

    After reading the manifesto over several hours the first thing that struck me was just how meticulous Anders Behring Breivik had been. The 1500 page document reveals a chilling obsession with what he saw as being destructive to the world. He dismisses concepts such as political correctness, feminism and major religions and philosophies including Islam and Marxism and defends his views by quoting people he views as authoritative. His writings are done in such a detached man they reveal a man who prided himself on attention to detail, a narcissist who is extremely disciplined. He would have seen his work...

The killer was right-wing and anti-jihad, yes, but he was not a neo-Nazi (he was pro-Israel) or a white supremacist (he opposed the BNP because they are racist). He was Christian, but not a fanatic (he was pro-gay). In fact he was apparently like me - liberal right. He was anti-racist, pro-gay and pro-Israel. So how on earth did someone like that become a terrorist against the West? Perhaps he...

Police suspect the attacks are linked. The bombing is the deadliest in Oslo since World War II. It tore open several buildings, including the prime minister's office. Prime Minister Yens Stoltenburg was not hurt. U.S. government sources told ABC News there may have been multiple explosions and at least one of them was the result of a massive vehicle bomb. Windows were shattered at the 20-floor high-rise...

Under education, Breivik wrote he studied independently, noting he has "approximately 14,500 hours of...
