About Breivik.......

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-14259989

Anders Behring Breivik, the 32-year-old suspect in Friday's attacks in Norway, held right-wing views, say police.

Police chief Sveinung Sponheim said his internet postings "suggest that he has some political traits directed toward the right, and anti-Muslim views".

"But whether that was a motivation for the actual act remains to be seen," he told Norwegian broadcaster NRK.

Mr Breivik appears to have created entries on social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter, though the accounts were set up just days ago on 17 July.

On the Facebook page attributed to him, he describes himself as a Christian and a conservative. The Facebook page is no longer available but it also listed interests such as body-building and freemasonry.

A Twitter account attributed to the suspect has also emerged but it only has one post, which is a quote from philosopher John Stuart Mill: "One person with a belief is equal to the force of 100,000 who have only interests."

In a post in Norwegian in an online forum on December 2009, a user named Anders Behring Breivik claims there is not one country where Muslims have peacefully lived with non-Muslims, stating that instead it has had "catastrophic consequences" for non-Muslims.

Fertiliser

The gunman was described by witnesses who saw him on Utoeya island as tall and blond - and dressed in a police uniform. The image of him posted on Facebook depict a blond, blue-eyed man.

The Norwegian newspaper Verdens Gang quoted a friend as saying that the suspect turned to right-wing extremism when in his late 20s.

He had no military background except for ordinary national service and no criminal record, it seems.

Mr Breivik is believed to have grown up in Oslo, and studied at the Oslo School of Management, which offers degrees and post-graduate courses.

He later appears to have moved out of the city and established Breivik Geofarm, a company Norwegian media is describing as a farming sole proprietorship set up to cultivate vegetables, melons, roots and tubers.

A supply company has come forward to say that it delivered six tonnes of fertiliser to this company in May - an ingredient used in bomb-making.

When first world governments steam roll multi-cultural policies across their beautiful first world countries, without any debate, without any opposition voices allowed to be heard, anger will boil to the surface and tragedies will inevitably occur, such as what just happened in Norway. I hope western governments and media learn a lesson from this tragedy and let both

In this country, no one is "silencing right wing voices," though a lot of them whine and cry that they are being silenced. Why is calling them what they are a "dangerous strategy"?

There is no lesson to be learned if the supposed lesson is multiculturalism is bad. Look back at the origins of this nation, who lived here? What languages were spoken? I see people rail on how immigrants should speak English, when a) there were numerious Indian dialects spoken before English, and in fact, Spanish was spoken here ahead of English.

What the reality of that is white guys had a hard hold on power, and now that the world is evolving to more complete participation, they don't like the reality of what being 1/3 of the US population means going forward. From where I am, that means you need to move over and share, not through bloody fits as in Norway. Poor cuss didn't like those Muslims moving into his country. Um, think his ancestors were there
