How to Stop Extremism that Fueled Shooting

Norway’s Johan Galtung, Peace & Conflict Pioneer

So Breivik talks cultures where the Nazis talked race. But otherwise, the similarity is almost point to point.

When again you ask the question, "What does it remind you of?" there is a horrifying answer, which will be very difficult for Norway to process. This is exactly the ideology of the Washington-led attack on Muslim countries. There’s a civil war in Europe. It’s called "the clash of civilizations,".... The road is greased by failed states and by local groups taking command of those failed states, so that in these failed states, the local groups, be they Taliban, Hamas, Hezbollah, or al-Qaeda, these groups can launch decisive attacks on the Christian Western mainland, and particularly then the U.S. And 9/11 is then interpreted in that context. And point three, it makes no sense to have any dialogue. These people, you cannot talk with them. Terrible as it is, the only language they understand is violence. Well, my country, Norway, is a part of that: sharpshooters in Afghanistan killing Taliban.
