The New Zealand Christchurch mosques shooter wrote in his "manifesto" that he became radicalized in 2017 after the April 7 terrorist attack in Stockholm where asylum seeker Rakhmat Akilov killed five people and injured fourteen others by running them over with a truck.
One of those killed was 11-year-old Ebba Akerland. Graphic pictures of her dead body split in half were shared on the internet in the aftermath of the attack.
In his manifesto, accused shooter Brenton Tarrant, 28, who described himself as "Just an ordinary White man" who had a "regular childhood, without any great issues" claimed he "dramatically changed" his views between April 2017 until the end of May 2017.
In this time period a series of events broke down my own reserves, my reservations, my cynicism and revealed the truth of the Wests current situation.(He said the second instance which radicalized him was the one-sided election of "globalist" Macron over "nationalist" Marine Le Pen in France.)
For his part, Ebba Akerlund's killer Rakhmat Akilov said he was angry over Western intervention in Iraq.
As AFP reported in 2018:
The prosecution said it would present as evidence excerpts of Akilov’s chat conversations concerning his “willingness to carry out a terror attack” and his “desire to join IS”.This is a clash of civilizations.
I do not think ignoring the stated motivations for these attacks, as Ben Shapiro and others have suggested, is very good advice.
I think that's actually likely going to make the situation even worse.
This whole cycle of violence was actually started as a result of neocon regime change wars seeking to reshape the Middle East (which a young Ben Shapiro supported then and still supports now). Those government-led wars led to hundreds of thousands of dead Muslims in wars based on lies (without a care in the world from our establishment).
After our leaders killed their leaders and threw their countries into chaos they eventually started migrating here en masse with our leaders' blessings. A fraction carried out terrorism against Westerners in revenge and in recent years we've seen Westerners carrying out their own revenge attacks against Muslims in return.
Meanwhile, Tulsi Gabbard, who advocates against these regime change wars and in favor of peace is regularly demonized by Ben Shapiro's The Daily Wire and the rest of the mass media as though she's some sort of terrorist sympathizer.
It seems clear to me, if our leaders actually cared about stopping this cycle of violence and clash of civilizations in its tracks, they would work out a deal for voluntary repatriation and development aid in exchange for an end to Western intervention in their nations and a peace treaty.
Of course, I realize to even suggest such a plan is almost laughable as our leaders are not actually in the least bit interested in bringing this conflict to an end and seem instead intent on making the conflict even worse. (For perspective, our joke of a media is currently blaming PewDiePie and Candace Owens for the attack.)
Hopefully sanity at some point in the future can be restored.
