Norway: Homegrown terror still threatens

The sometimes overlooked danger of domestic terrorism hit home last week when a man went on a killing spree that left 76 people dead.

Anders Behring Breivik, whom authorities said confessed to the shootings, was no convert to militant Islamism, no follower of deceased al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden, no throwback to the Marxist terrorists of the '60s and '70s or adherent of a non-Europe "ism."

Instead, his cause is perhaps one as old as the human race -- protecting one's own from the outsider.

In this case: Muslims immigrants to Norway and their resultant "impact" on Norwegian society.

"Marxist multiculturalism," he reportedly wrote in a personal manifesto, had led to moral decay and a creeping Muslim colonization of his country and Europe.
