What’s going on in a mind of a man as Anders Behring Breivik to stand in front of a crowd of youngsters and began to kill them cold-blooded without any reason? A man ho has (or had) everything he wanted, who lives in one of the more peaceful, beautiful, richest countries in the world and start an atrocious massacre of his fellow Norwegians who doesn’t think like him? In front of terrorism I always make myself this questions. I can’t imagine what is going on in that minds, the ones that carefully plans a massive assassination plan, prepare all the details, practice, and then one they took actions against innocent people, because they are different, or they think, pray or look different?. They are humans, fellow humans, people who feel, who laugh when they are happy, who suffer when things are wrong, who can be anonymous heroes, or maybe sometimes anonymous cowards, but fighting to make amends and go on with their lives, who can love, or maybe just losers or thugs, but who are you, terrorists, assassins, to judge them and execute them? You who are a billion times worse than them because don’t hesitate to take their lives in cold blood?.

I covered some terrorists attacks in Spain By ETA and always made to myself that question. What are going on into that brains?

We are no perfect. Nobody, Not you, Breivik, blonde handsome coward, prepared to kill youngsters unarmed in a country that you know there are a very mild policing and judicial system, and where your lawyer will declare you insane because what you did is actually insane. Not your accomplices, not the hate groups that are emerging in Europe. What are you defending? Your commodities? your opportunities to have enough money? or worst of all, your race? Do you think you are superior to that more than seventy people you killed?

I know you don’t acted out of desperation as other terrorists who usually die in the act because they don’t have any expectations in life and became suicidal (and with this I’m NOT justifying ANY KIND OF TERRORISM, I’M A PACIFIST AGAINST ALL KIND OF VIOLENCE).

I know you don’t killed because you were not free. Your country guarantee your human rights and your freedom of speech. So, why don’t explain what was so horrible to you and your accomplices with words instead bullets and bombs? You that can do so? that have all the means. Don’t you have a computer? A fast internet line? A mobile phone? can’t you reach the media in other way than put your whole country in mourn?

Most other people in this world, in other countries maybe you don’t even know their names don’t have any of the basic human rights guarantee, can’t speak freely, can’t explain what they need, are dying of starvation (do you know that there is something named “Africa’s Horn”?), can’t move because of blockades or closed borders (look at Palestine or at what’s happening with the so-called “Arab Spring”). Thousands  if not millions of women are raped as a war strategy for ethnic cleansing.

And you and your “cells” of the privileged world are alarmed? of what? that the suffering get too close to home? Well, I have news for you. You said you are Christian. You are not. Christ teach that all human beings are equal all of us creatures an sons an daughters of God with the same dignity, no matter what. You can call yourself what you want, but you are not Christian, you are manipulating and are just an egocentric assassin.
