A white supremacist Neo Nazi opened fire in a Mosque in Norway on Eid claiming he was inspired by recent white extremist attacks in New Zealand and the US, according to online posts suspected of originating from the terrorist.
Only late the the UN and US announced that white supremacist, Neo Nazi and far right extremism has now become the most common form of terrorism.
The largest number of attacks coming from the US and Northern Europe.
Police in Norway have so far only said the attack in Baerum, a town 20km from Oslo, the capital, is being treated as far right terrorism.
Gunman Philip Manshaus referred to Brenton Tarrant the gunman who murdered 51 people isn’t a Mosque in New Zealand in March 2019 as a “Saint”.
Manahaus has also been charged with murder after his 17 year old sister was found dead at a separate location.
Manahaus was beaten bear handed and disarmed by a 65 year old Pakistani pensioner who was praying at the Masjid. Mohammad Rafiq, 65, has been praised as a global hero and is believed to have saved hundreds of lives.
