Cycle Of Violence: NZ Shooter Said He Was Radicalized By Terror Attack Which Killed Ebba Akerlund

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.

These events turned my thoughts from pursuing a democratic, political solution and finally caused the revelation of the truth, that a violent, revolutionary solution is the only possible solution to our current crisis.

I was travelling as a tourist in Western Europe at the time, France, Spain Portugal and others.The first event that begun the change was the terror attack in Stockholm, on the 7th of April 2017. It was another terror attack in the seemingly never ending attacks that had been occurring on a regular basis throughout my adult life. But for some reason this was different. The jaded cynicism with which I had greeted previous attacks didn’t eventuate. Something that had been a part of my life for as long as I could remember, cynicism in the face of attacks on the West by islamic invaders, was suddenly no longer there. I could no longer bring the sneer to my face, I could no longer turn my back on the violence. Something, this time, was different.

That difference was Ebba Akerlund.

Young, innocent and dead Ebba.

Ebba was walking to meet her mother after school, when she was murdered by an Islamic attacker, driving a stolen vehicle through the shopping promenade on which she was walking. Ebba was partially deaf, unable to hear the attacker coming.

Ebba death at the hands of the invaders, the indignity of her violent demise and my inability to stop it broke through my own jaded cynicism like a sledgehammer.

I could no longer ignore the attacks. They were attacks on my people, attacks on my culture, attacks on my faith and attacks on my soul. They would not be ignored.
(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”.

In one chat, he asked for help “to carry out a crime, he wanted to run down infidels (because) Sweden supports Nato and sends bomb technicians to Iraq and train Kurds,” the indictment read.
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.
