Norwegian
police have charged a man Saturday, whom reports are describing as a
“right-wing fundamentalist Christian”, in connection with the bombing in
Oslo, and youth camp massacre on Friday that left 92 people dead.
  • Anders Behring Breivik
    (Reuters/TV2 Norway via Reuters TV)
    A
    photograph of Norwegian attack suspect Anders Behring Breivik is
    broadcast by Norwegian television July 23, 2011. Police detained the
    tall, blond suspect, named by local media as Anders Behring Breivik, and
    charged him for the killing spree and the bombing of government
    buildings in Oslo. A suspected far-right gunman in police uniform killed
    at least 84 people in a ferocious attack on a youth summer camp of
    Norway's ruling Labour party, hours after a bomb killed seven in Oslo.
The
tragedy has shocked the world, and it is believed that the death toll
will rise as the search for those unaccounted for continues.

Police
have not yet specifically identified the man they have charged, but a
number of media outlets have named him as 32-year-old Anders Behring
Breivik. Reports have highlighted Facebook and Twitter accounts under
that name that cited philosophers Machiavelli and Kant, and states: “One
person with a belief is equal to the force of 100,000 who have only
interests.”

The atrocities are the worst Norway has seen since
World War II, with at least 85 people confirmed dead from the Utoya
Island shootings. The isolated island is situated nearly 20 miles
northwest of Oslo, and was hosting about 600 campers. It appears that
many had gathered in the camp’s assembly hall to be informed about the
earlier bombings in Oslo.

Witnesses have also come forward telling
that the alleged Christian fundamentalist wore a police uniform, which
he used to deceive his victims.

Witness accounts explain that at
one point the gunman persuaded several youths who were hiding to come
out to him. Believing him to be a policeman there to save them the
youths rushed out only to be gunned down by the merciless attacker.

Media
reports are portraying Breivik as a “gun-loving” Norwegian native who
had become angry and obsessed by multiculturalism and Muslim immigration.

Other
reports have placed a second gunman on the island, although no official
confirmation has been given on that information. Norwegian newspaper VG
reported that one survivor has said he saw a second gunman holding a
pistol and carrying a rifle. He describes this attacker as dressed in
civilian clothing as opposed to Breivik’s police uniform.

“We are not sure whether he was alone or had help,” a police official, Roger Andresen, said at a televised news conference.

He added, “What we know is that he is right-wing and a Christian fundamentalist.”

Breivik has not been linked to any anti-jihadist groups, he added.

“As for right now, one man has been apprehended for this, that’s all I can say,” Andresen said.

    Another gun nut, but this time in Norway. Or, a Fundamentalist Christian Militia Neo-Nazi,. just like are so dangerous here. In America the Fringe Right-wing Christians are making a big deal about the Muslims, which have made and continue to make less trouble than the Christians. That is what they do to keep the Police away from them. This is one of the few Media that is actually saying the truth about this murderous Fascist Pig.

    Whyarrest Christians? The Killer was a Evoluntion Pagan who had nothing to do with Christians. You sound like" Liberationist Theology" This is an belief system which is much like a Power base .... Looking very much like a fat Naked Karl Marx nailed to a cross. . There is no relevance here just some thing perverse and foolish.

    If we dont keep our religious beliefs separate from our govt, we will have the same environment as Israel and Afghanistan. When people seriously consider electing anyone like Bachmann or Perry, they need to think about those countries.

    Personally i want to say he is another religou nut case but thats my personal opinion and as we know oppinions are liek a-holes we all have one, but what i find crazy is this. A Muslim man shoots people and we label him a Islamic terrorist, but a Christian shoots people and he is a crazy person, two people same crime, but one gets a label that promotes hate and the other gets a label that promotes crazy, where is the balance?

    This is how he describes himself in his manifesto:

    On page 1,307, Breivik makes a distinction which reveals the nature of his fundamentalism:

    A majority of so called agnostics and atheists in Europe are cultural conservative Christians without even knowing it. So what is the difference between cultural Christians and religious Christians? If you have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and God then you are a religious Christian. Myself and many more like me do not necessarily have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and God. We do however believe in Christianity as a cultural, social, identity and moral platform. This makes us Christian.

    Breivik asserts that a majority of the atheists in Europe are cultural conservative Christians. This comes as a surprise to us all, I suppose. The key to understanding his manifesto, his mania and the confusion currently dominating news headlines lies in the reality that by "Christian" he almost always means "European." In the massive introduction to his manifesto, for example, there is not a single quotation from Scripture, mention of the creeds, allusion to the Church or reference to Jesus Christ himself.

    Anders Breivik is a cultural fundamentalist. He is a European fundamentalist. But he disowns orthodox Christianity, and this makes it all the more ironic, and disgusting, that he saw himself as a kind of representative against threats to "Christendom

    "The blond killer of at least 93 people in Norway sees himself as a righteous crusader on a mission to save European "Christendom" from a tide of Islam.

    Multi-culturalism is one of the dirtiest words in Anders Behring Breivik's political vocabulary.

    Don't expect remorse from the 32-year-old who massacred leftist youngsters on a summer camp island and bombed central Oslo buildings occupied by Norway's Labour-led government.

    In a rambling, plagiaristic manifesto posted just before his killing spree began, Breivik says the Knights Templar, a medieval order of crusading warriors, lent modern renown by Dan Brown's best-sellers, had been re-formed in London in 2002.

    Two of the founding members were British while one each came from France, Germany, the Netherlands, Greece, Russia, Norway and Serbia, Breivik writes, without naming them.

    "The order is to serve as an armed Indigenous Rights Organization and as a Crusader Movement (anti-Jihad movement)," writes Breivik, now in police custody on terrorism .

    The result of the mainstream nationalist sentiment has been a retreat from the idea of a united Europe, Gabriel alleged. "We need exactly the opposite right now," he added.

    Meanwhile, conservative German Interior Minister Hans-Peter Friedrich warned against the dangers of an increasingly violent far-right community in his country. In an interview with daily Rheinische Post on Wednesday, Friedrich said that while the number of members in right-wing extremist groups was declining, the concentration of those willing to commit violent acts for their beliefs had swelled.

    Not according to Breivik;
    Page 53;

    A survey conducted by Cornell University found that around half of Americans had a negative view of Islam[9]. Addressing a press conference at the headquarters of the World Assembly of Muslim Youth (WAMY), Paul Findley, a former US Congressman, said that the cancer of anti-Muslim and anti-Islamic sentiments was spreading in American society and required corrective measures to stamp out. It was announced that the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) would be launching a massive $50 million media campaign involving television, radio and newspapers. “We are planning to meet Prince Alwaleed ibn Talal for his financial support to our project. He has been generous inthe past.”
    The World Assembly of Muslim Youth, founded by the nephew of Osama Bin Laden in the US, is sharing offices with the Islamic Society of North America and the Islamic Centre of Canada. WAMY Canada runs[10] a series of Islamic camps and pilgrimages for youth. US Special Agent Kane quoted from a publication prepared by the WAMY that said: “Hail! Hail! O Sacrificing Soldiers! To Us! To Us! So we may defend the flag on this Day of Jihad,are you miserly with your blood?! And has life become dearer to you? And staying behind sweeter?”

    I am sure that you feel that way Joseph but it is way more complicated than that. There will probably come a time in the future when Muslims will not be able to serve. Too many conflicts and mistrust. Much of it is within them. A lot of pressure on them as part of a collective.

    Here is a letter written by Dr Arieh Eldad;

    “I was instrumental in establishing the Israeli National Skin Bank, which is the largest in the world. The National Skin Bank stores skin for every day needs as well as for war time or mass casualty situations.

    This skin bank is hosted at the Hadassah Ein Kerem University hospital in Jerusalem where I was the Chairman of plastic surgery. This is how I was asked to supply skin for an Arab woman from Gaza , who was hospitalized in Soroka Hospital in Beersheva, after her family burned her. Usually, such atrocities happen among Arab families when the women are suspected of having an affair.

    We supplied all the needed Homografts for her treatment. She was successfully treated by my friend and colleague, Prof. Lior Rosenberg and discharged to return to Gaza . She was invited for regular follow-up visits to the outpatient clinic in Beersheva.

    It seems that her family promised her that if she did that, they would forgive her.
