Also in Sweden, a support message to Breivik comes from a nationalist. A local politician in Sweden Democrats (SD) believes that the massacre in Norway is because of mass immigration and Islamization.
On his blog, the municipal politician Erik Hellsborn in Varberg wrote that he did not feel embarrassed to be agreed with Anders Behring Breivik's goal.
“If there was Islamization and mass immigration, something should have been done as Breivik did” he wrote.
– The ultimate responsibility always is directed to the perpetrator, but you should discuss the underlying causes that drove him, says Hellsborn to newspaper Hallands Nyheter.
Experts had previously warned Breivik's terror attacks may trigger similar violences in Europe.
