Extremists take many shapesPosted Tuesday, July 26, 2011, at 11:35 AM
We talk about Muslim extremists when we look at 9-11 and other terror attacks on America and its allie around the world, but last week, Anders Behring Breivik proved that Muslims don't have a corner on the market when it comes to extremist, terrorist behavior.
Breivik has admitted bombing the capital and opening fire on a youth group retreat on an island resort in Norway. In an AP story, he reportedly told authorities he expects to spend the rest of his life in prison. Declaring he wanted to save Europe from "Muslim domination."
He is being labeled a Christian extremist is the same fashion as Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh.
The end result, regardless of Muslim or Christian or any other religious extremist pushed to carry out an attack on innocent civilians, demonstrate that crazy and demented doesn't carry any particular religious label. Terrorism is terrorism - the ends don't justify the means in any of these terrorist attacks - whether performed by or against Christians or Muslims.
