I am really interested in the way that the mainstream media are spinning the actions of Anders Behring Breivik. Already he had a hatred of Muslims, he was a racist, a right wing extremist but nothing about the real purpose of the activity on Utoya Island.
What he did was unbelievable but as I said before why did he pick on Utoya Island? What is going on at Utoya Island that sparked his wrath? Why did the Daily Mail publish a photograph of the Norwegian Foreign Secretary visiting these young people the week before they were attacked? Hell if these young people were attending a normal camp for young people why did the Norwegian Foreign Secretary feel the need to embrace them?
Nothing can excuse the actions of Anders Breivik but we must question the political implications of the use of Utoya Island. What he did was hugely wrong but did he point a finger at an even greater wrongdoing? No, I agree the deaths of those kids cannot be excused. It does not matter how frustrated, how disenfranchised, how grieved he felt it took the actions of a madman to do what he did.
Of course madmen have changed history!
