Anders Breivik, the Norwegian mass killer who shocked Europe and the world on July 22, 2011, was sentenced to at least 21 years in prison. The sentence by the Oslo district court is not only a relief to the loved ones of the 77 victims, but sends an important political message as well.
The court considered the mass killer sane when he was on his murderous rampage. He was not seen as a psychotic lone wolf as far-right and xenophobic groups would have wished.
Norway begins today the long process of healing the wounds inflicted by Breivik and the Counter-Jihadist ideology that encouraged him to carry out his killings.
According to researcher Toby Archer of the Finnish Institute of International Affairs, Counter-Jihad is the new ideology found in the blogshpere, which is not anti-Semitic and does not associate itself with neo-Nazis.
Counter-Jihad movements could be seen as a modern expression of fascism spreading the same message of intolerance. In the 1930s it was Jews, today the scapegoats are Muslims.
The Norwegian mass killer’s deeds did great harm to anti-Islam and anti-immigration groups throughout Europe, especially in the Nordic region. In many respects, the political tide has turned after 22/7.
What Breivik did in the summer of 2011 is incomprehensible, but the smoking gun behind the bloodshed was far-right hate speech that warns Europe that it is being invaded by Islam.
Migrant Tales applauds the sentence by the Oslo district court.
No less than this odious little nonentity deserved.
The ideology and ridiculous conspiracy theory that motivated Breivik corresponds in all essential respects to the views promulgated by the convicted racist criminal Halla-aho.

Totally agree. Halla-aho is an opportunist who believes that he can keep racism and hatred on a short leash. Well, sometimes racism bites back its owner like in Breivik’s case.
Tärkein asia ei ole tuomio vaan, että hänet on julistettu täysjärkiseksi. Liian usein valkoinen terroristi julistetaan hulluksi ja muut terroristi ovat täysjärkisiä.
Hänet on nyt laskettu samalle tasolle, kuin muutkin terroristit. Tältä tasa-arvoisen arvioinin kuuluu näyttää.
So a sane man becomes a mass child murderer through adherence to an evil ideology based on a ridiculous ethnic conspiracy theory.
We have seen this before.

I entirely agree with you.This was an awful situation and inhumane and we have to not allow it to happen again, really Halla-aho has an issues of spreading and motivating public about such evil ideology of targeting ethnic minorities in Finland. He and his like-minded groups select immigrants which ever they like, like a buffet and defame that morning. I can’t call politicain like that people but what fatuous and thoughtless they are. How can they lead this nation or make justice if they are always busy to harm their own people? Surely, they can’t.
