Oslo suspect fringe righty … surprised?

with 3 comments

Just learned about the news from over at Skeptic Money. As I posted yesterday, seven were reported to have been killed in the Oslo attacks this week.

Now, the BBC has reported that 85 are dead from the youth camp attack that also occurred on a nearby island in Norway. The suspect is Anders Behring Breivik, 32, who was apparently a fringe right-winger. He already has a Wikipedia entry. Some of his writings are recorded at this link, which references a site called, described on Wikipedia as “an Anti-Islam[1]anti-immigration[2] and pro-Israel[3] citizen journalistic website for political analysis, commentary, essays and reportage.” You will have to use Google and translate the above-linked writings.

According to local deputy police chief Roger Andresen in Norway:

We have no more information than … what has been found on [his] own websites, which is that it goes towards the right and that it is, so to speak, Christian fundamentalist.

If that’s true, religious fanaticism strikes again.
