According to reports, Breivik called himself a crusader against a tide of Islam and wants an opportunity to explain the actions he thought "atrocious, but necessary".
His lawyer also went on to say that he admitted to the violence and the eventual deaths, but is adamant that it wasn't a criminal guilt. Speaking to TV2 News, his lawyer, Geir Lippestad said, "He has been politically active and found out himself that he did not succeed with usual political tools and so resorted to violence. I await a medical assessment of him."
Leipstad went on to add, "He explains himself fairly calmly, but every now and then expresses emotion. He buries his head in his hands...He has said that he believed the actions were atrocious, but that in his head they were necessary."
According to the police, Breivik may have acted alone after becoming disillusioned with the political parties, that have gained massively on anti-immigration policies in otherwise liberal and tolerant European countries.
And his last entry in his manifesto, definitely points in that direction. He wrote, "The old saying; "if you want something done, then do it yourself" is as relevant now as it was then. More than one "chef" does not mean that you will do tasks twice as fast. In many cases; you could do it all yourself, it will just take a little more time. AND, without taking unacceptable risks. The conclusion is undeniable.
I believe this will be my last entry. It is now Fri July 22nd, 12.51."
And then occurred the attacks that have left at least 93 dead at the last count.
