Â “Extreme Right”- just what we need:
Anders Behring Breivik is a conservative Christian who enjoys classical music and the video game World of Warcraft. Â Â Breivik has been named by several Norwegian media outlets as the suspected shooter at a youth camp in Oslo, where 10 people were killed Friday and he may be linked to a bombing near the prime minister’s residence that killed seven others.

Â At last, some apparently definitive information. After a jihad group curiously claimed responsibility and retracted, and afterÂ some terror experts said it was a jihad attackÂ andsome said it wasn’t, and after theÂ media pointed to jihadists as essentially the only ones with a motive, andÂ Islamic supremacists applauded the attack, it appears that it was not a jihad attack after all. “Norway Camp Shooting: ‘As Many As 30 Dead,'” fromÂ Sky News, July 22:
Because the shooter at the Utoya youth camp was Norwegian. No one seems to be wondering whether or not he is a convert.
“Experts point to the extreme-right,” a translation of an article fromÂ Nyheder, July 22:
Terrorists attack OsloÂ (Bolt)
Knut Storberget, Norway’s Minister of Justice confirms this evening the arrested shooter, who is believed to have carried several guns, is a Norwegian.
More on that shooter:
Police said the gunman, described by witnesses asÂ tall and blond, had been arrested.
“Explosives were found on the island,” deputy Oslo police chief Sveining Sponheim told reporters. He said a man detained by police was aged 32 and ”ethnic Norwegian.”
Even so, the history of Islamic violence in Scandinavia suggests Muslim immigration there has been a bad deal for the locals:
It was not immediately known who was behind the bombing, but Norway’s intelligence police agency (PST) said in February that Islamic extremism was a major threat to the country…
… police last year arrested three Muslim men based in Norway suspected of planning an attack using explosives in the Scandinavian country.
Norwegian prosecutors earlier this month also filed a terrorism charge against Mullah Krekar, founder of the Kurdish Islamist group Ansar al-Islam, who was accused of threatening a politician with death over his potential deportation from the country….
Neighbouring Sweden was targeted in a suicide bombing last December when Taimour Abdulwahab, a 29-year-old whose family fled from Iraq to Sweden in 1991, blew up himself and his car in a deserted side-street off of Stockholm’s busiest pedestrian thoroughfare, injuring two people.
Described as 6ft tall and blond, he is reported to have arrived on the island of Utoya and opened fire after beckoning several young people over in his native Norwegian tongue.
Reports suggest he was also seen loitering around the site of the bomb blast in Oslo two hours before the island incident – and also before the capital’s explosion.
His Facebook page?Â He claims to be a Christian. Â (But they said that about Obama also)
He runs a “Geofarm”, which suggests he’d have access to chemicals and lots of fertiliser.
