Russia as the mass murderer’s political model
In his 1,500-page manifesto, Breivik is full of references to Russia. He sees Putin as a “potential” friend for a European revolution. For Putin’s spokesman, his are the “ravings of a madman”.

Moscow (AsiaNews) – Russia not only expressed its solidarity and extended its condolences to the Norwegian government for the 90 and more victims killed in Oslo and Utoya Island last Friday, but also rejected any association with Anders Behring Breivik, the man who carried out the massacre.

In his long manifesto, which he posted online under an anglicised version of his name (Andrew Berwick), the 32-year-old mass murderer laid out his plans, citing Russia as an example of a nation that a Europe “liberated” from NATO rule and the alliance with the United States must join in order to halt the progress of Islam. In it, he describes Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin as a “potential” friend and ally for his behind-the-scene subversive plan.

Interviewed by the daily Kommersant, the Russian prime minister’s spokesman Dmitri Peskov called Breivik “the devil incarnate”, describing his words as the “ravings of a madman.”

In Norway, the authorities have not yet verified the authenticity of Breivik’s manifesto, but his attorney has already referred to it. In it, the terrorist has called for a European revolution to liberate the continent by 2083 from multiculturalism, Islam and many wrong ideas that according to him are destroying Europe’s roots. In his document, Breivik pays homage to new Christian militias inspired by the Templar Order. In it, he sees Russia playing a primary role.

In talking about the new ways to promote a “patriotic” and “cultural conservatism”, he cites ‘Nashi’ (Ours), a pro-Putin Russian nationalist youth movement that promotes extremism and is often involved in violent action against civil society groups that are critical of Russia’s current government.

“The destiny of the European peninsula cannot be separated from continental Russia, for both ethno-cultural and geopolitical reasons,” the text said. “ It’s absolutely imperative for America’s mercantile thalassocracy (naval supremacy, in either military or commercial senses of the word) to prevent the birth of the culturally and ideologically confident European Federation.”

The goal is to set in motion coups across Europe backed by a military and nuclear power like Russia to stop any action by the United States or NATO.

Bur Russia is not only a potential ally but also a political model to emulate. In ‘A European Declaration of Independence,’ the author writes, “the dysfunctional mass-democracy will be replaced by an administered form of democracy similar to that of Russia”. For him, the model to build is a form of authoritarian democracy epitomised by Russia’s “controlled democracy”, which Putin has been constructing since he became president in 2000.

The Russian prime minister is among the people cited as having understood which way the West is going if Islam is not stopped. “Even the ] Russian president, Vladimir Putin knows exactly what is going on as he has publicly stated in the past: Western Europe is heading in a direction where they are going to become colonies of their former colonies”.

Paris Massacre highlights the failure of Muslim integration in Europe
by Catherine FieldThe attack in the heart of France highlights the crisis of Europe’s model of coexistence. Social unrest, poverty and marginalisation feed youth extremism and radicalisation. A New Zealander journalist, expert on expertise in religion and interfaith dialogue, talks about it after undertaking a journey through the French Muslim world.
For Nîmes imam, Islam should not be held hostage by extremists
by Hochine DrouicheFrench imams condemn the Paris terrorist attacks and disassociate themselves from violence committed in "the name of our religion." At the same time, they ask Muslim communities to dare leading a life of dialogue and friendship with Europeans, without fear or arrogance. For centuries, Muslims have ruled out reason from their religious life. The vice president of French imams bears witness.
AsiaNews marks 12 years: Persecution and hope
by Bernardo CervelleraDespite a worldwide increase of ignorance, indifference and superficiality, many signs of love and hope resist even in the most gloomy situations: the Iraqi mother who gives birth to her child in a refugee camp and smiles even though she has nothing; the Indonesian Muslim mother who blesses her son who became a Christian and a priest; the Chinese Christian families that welcome children thrown away because of the one-child law.
