Norwegians can be Proud of their Country Today.

Anders Behring Breivik. This is why racial profiling doesn't work.

Needless to say the killing of nearly 100 people, probably by a right-wing Christian extremist called Anders Behring Breivik in by bomb in Oslo and by shooting on a nearby island youth camp yesterday is a terrible crime. A spokesman for the Norwegian Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg's Labour party said
"We meet terror and violence with more democracy and will continue to fight against intolerance..."
I can't help thinking that if Bush or Blair had said something similar in the wake of 9/11 or 7/7, Britons or Americans would not be living in the unpleasant police-states in which they now find themselves.

Or, if the US and UK did use racial profiling, lots of passengers wouldn't have to endure needless searches....

Er, profiling does work and this guy proves it. He apparently comes from a Christian sect, so when looking for non-suicide shooters, look at his crew.

But when looking for Jihadis who take bombs onto planes with the intention of martyrdom, look at Muslim types.

Israel profiles. They are most at risk in the world. When was the last time an El-Al plane was taken out?

You know and I know that little European kids aren't carrying explosives or AK-47's yet some people still apparently tolerate their molestation or irradiation by goons in uniforms.

Others can let their kids be groped if thet choose but it will never happen to my son, thus, whilst the TSA exists, I shall never visit the USA.

This disgrace is only possible whilst people tolerate it. I reject it.

From the age of one years he and his step sister, were raised by their mother alone.

He'll be out of prison in 21 years, unless the Norwegians change something.

According to the excerpts of the manifesto that I have seen, Breivik considered himself a "cultural Christian" rather than an actual follower of Christ.

The newspapers here in America were THRILLED to have a "blond, Christian" for a perpetrator.

We are supposed to see mass-murdering Muslims as being unrepresentative of the Islamic population, but Breivik, of course, shows that all Christians are fascists at heart. Or something like that.
