The 32-year-old man arrested in connection with today’s twin terror attacks in Norway has been identified by local media as Anders Behring Breivik — a 6ft tall Norwegian from Oslo with alleged ties to “right-wing extremist groups in eastern Norway.”
Police say he is not affiliated with Islamist organizations and likely acted alone.
Breivik has a Facebook page [UPDATE: Page has been deleted, PDF copy here (via)] on which he lists his religious views as “Christian” and his political views as “Conservative.” He also mentions his finance degrees, and the fact that he owns a company called Breivik Geofarm, which, according to government business records, specializes in the “growing of vegetables, melons, roots and tubers.”
Several days prior to the attack, a tweet was posted to a Twitter account associated with Breivik which states “One person with a belief is equal to the force of 100 000 who have only interests.” It’s worth noting that both Breivik’s Facebook and Twitter accounts did not exist until a few days ago.
Though his exact motives remain unverified at this time, it appears Breivik left a comment on “a Norwegian web site noted for criticism against the current immigration policies” recommending a post by well-known anti-Islam activist Pamela Geller.
He is currently being interrogated by police, and charges are expected to be formulated shortly.
Charles Hasbeen Johnson has posted that the Norway maniac is the longtime fan, and sometimes posted writer, of Atlas Shrugs, Fjordman.
Pamela knows Fjordman and reported that he was online this evening, which did not deter American maniac Charles Johnson from repeating his asinine unsubstantiated claim.
