Stuff (New Zealand): Smirking Norway killer Breivik pleads not guilty
According to MSNBC, the self-confessed mass killer Anders Behring Breivik told his trial Tuesday that he was motivated by "goodness, not evil" and said, "I would have done it again." On the second day of his trial, he boasted about last July's massacre in a pre-pared statement to court, saying: "I have carried out the most sophisticated and spectacular political attack committed in Europe since the Second World War."
In the court hearing, Breivik has repeated his well known views against Islam and Muslims and argued that the aim of the massacre was to end "multicultural drift."
Breivik compared himself to other racist serial killers in Europe, such as Peter Mangs, the Malmo serial killer who in 2010 picked off immigrants with a sniper rifle, and Germany's NSU group, who killed more than 10 immigrants over the last decade.
As Telegraph reported: "It is important that more patriots in Europe assume responsibility like I did, and men like Peter Mangs in Malmo did," he said. "They are all perfect foot soldiers ". for nationalist rebirth. Europe needs more great heroes like them."
The killer argued that since the Second World War, democracy in Europe had been stifled by a conspiracy of Liberal and Marxists, who "feared that new Hitlers would pop up and cause the Third World War".
I will not go into the detail of his trial since a lot of material is available on the internet. By giving the above headlines I would like to make only one point. I wanted to ask, if brutally killing 77 people is not terrorism and Anders Behring Breivik should not be called "The Norway terrorist Breivik." Call a spade a spade. From these headlines I can speculate that in the stories also Breivik is not labeled as terrorist but as extremist, killer and mass killer.
