Anders Behring Breivik, a 32-year-old Norwegian who allegedly killed at least 90 people, most of them children, in Europe's worst terrorist attack since 2004, was reported Saturday to have a history of hatred of Muslims and of links with Christian fundamentalists and rightwing extremists such as Geert Wilders of Netherlands.

Breivik was charged with shooting dead 85 people on a heavily wooded island near the capital of Oslo on Friday after first setting off a huge car bomb explosion that killed seven people in or around government offices. Most if not all of the dead on the island were believed to be teenagers attending a youth camp sponsored by the governing Labor Party.

The Friday massacre in Norway was the work of a man with extreme right wing views who hated Muslims, The Daily Mail reported police as saying Saturday.

Officers found a series of raving internet posts by Anders Behring Breivik, who was been charged with two counts of terrorism.

The death toll is the worst in Europe since the 2004 Madrid train bombings that killed 191 people.

Previously Oslo, known for the Nobel Peace Prize awards, had experienced no acts of terrorism.

Media reports in Norway described Breivik as a 'loner', who lived with his mother in a wealthy suburb of west Oslo, was well-educated and enjoyed hunting.

The Daily Mail pointed out that only a few days ago he set up a Twitter account and posted a single message: 'One person with a belief is equal to the force of 100,000 who have only interests'. It is attributed to the English philosopher John Stuart Mill, whose concept of liberty justified the freedom of the individual in opposition to unlimited state control.

The Huffington Post cited the Swedish news site Expressen as saying that Breivik is a "self-described nationalist who has also written a number of posts critical of Islam."

The New York Daily News reported that the killer behind Friday's bloodletting in Norway is a boyishly handsome, blond-haired anti-Islamic nationalist interested in politics, violent video games and the T.V. show "Dexter."

Not surprisingly Islamophobe Fox News reported Friday night that the Norway terrorist attacks appear to be the work, once again, of Muslim extremists. The Fox claim came in The O'Reilly Factor program while other media networks were already reporting at the time the show aired that the suspect in the attacks was not linked to any Islamist groups.

On his Facebook (now taken down) profile, Breivik describes himself as a Christian and a conservative. It also listed interests such as body-building and freemasonry.

Breivik has previously driven the blog Fjordman and later for many years been a writer for the anti-Muslim and Zionist bloggers Gates of Vienna and Jihad Watch, under the pseudonym Fjordman, according to a Norwedian blog.
