Norway Mass Child Murder Suspect Admits Killings, Claims Self-Defense
White nationalist terrorist Breivik will use the same twisted and ugly rationalization that Al Qaeda does - his culture/religion is under attack so he has to defend it. This is the essential flaw with the counter jihad movement in a nutshell. In their hateful zeal they have become everything that their enemy is; their reason is sundered and their hearts are blackened with lies, shriveled with bile, and become pitifully small and evil things.
The man accused of killing 77 people in a bomb and gun rampage in Norway last summer admitted Monday that he had committed the acts but said he was not guilty.
“I acknowledge the acts but do not plead guilty, and I claim I was doing it in self-defense,” Anders Behring Breivik told a court in Oslo, Norway. The court recorded a plea of not guilty for him.
As his trial opened earlier in the day, he raised a clenched fist and said he did not recognize the authority of the court.
He objected to the judge’s friendship with a former justice minister, calling the trial political, Norwegian media reported.
He then listened impassively as prosecutor Inga Bejer Engh read the charges against him, describing how dozens of teenagers and young people died from shots to the head and body.
Breivik, in a black suit and jawline beard, read the indictment as the prosecutor spoke, showing no reaction as she listed the injuries the victims suffered on Utoya Island.
