Another violent far right white nationalist thwarted

This time in Norway.
“A Norwegian white nationalist tried to kill Muslims at a mosque”
Police says he was inspired by the attacks in Christchurch and El Paso.

An attempted mass killing at a mosque outside Oslo, Norway, on Saturday was allegedly perpetrated by a young white man who holds extreme right-wing views — and was seemingly inspired by last week’s El Paso attack that targeted America’s Latinx community.

Oslo police on Sunday said they’re looking into the shooting at the al-Noor Islamic Center in Baerum as “an attempted act of terrorism.” No one was killed because only three people were there when the assailant came in — though dozens were there just 10 minutes earlier — and the suspected attacker was overpowered by two men at the site even as shots were fired at them. One of the men who brought the shooter down is 65 years old and sustained the attempt’s lone injury.

“There is no doubt that the swift and firm response from the persons inside the mosque stopped the aggressor and prevented further consequences,” Oslo Assistant Police Chief Rune Skjold told reporters. The two men’s act was particularly brave as the suspect reportedly wore body armor and came heavily armed, though it’s currently unclear what kind of weaponry he carried.

The timing of the attack was painful for many of Norway’s 200,000 Muslims, as Sunday is the start of Eid al-Adha, a major Islamic holiday that marks the height of the hajj pilgrimage to Mecca, Saudi Arabia. Officials have placed extra security at mosques throughout Oslo to ensure the safety of those wanting to pray in their house of worship. Non-Muslims have also stood guard outside the city’s mosques to offer protection.

1. Some similarities.....

....."Authorities also are investigating the killing of a 17-year-old girl, the assailant’s stepsister, who was found dead inside the shooter’s home."

So like the other guy, he killed his sister first? WTF?

And....."The suspect, who is in his early 20s,.."

They're all really young guys...I just don't understand it...who can be so misguided with so much ahead of them? I mean, you're not even really fully grown and developed til 25 or so, these guys haven't even really lived life.

3. Someone they were dating

And brother didn't approve.

I'd still like to know if that was a motivating factor in Dayton and now p;ossibly here, but I can't count on the "news" to give me facts these days just what they want me to think about things.

9. The fact that it was in Norway was in the first sentence

If you didn’t want to read about Norway, you could have stopped right there at word number 11.
