A recent study by an anti-racism campaign group has revealed that the UK plays a leading role in the growth of anti-Islam groups that were behind Norway’s mass murder. A new report by anti-racism group 'Hope Not Hate' showed that the UK is one of Europe’s most active countries with regard to the spread of anti-Islam extremism, with 22 anti-Islam groups now operating in the country, reported the Guardian. The report was released one day before the trial of Anders Behring Breivik, Norway’s anti-Islam mass murderer who has confessed to slaying 77 people. “All eyes this week will be on what Breivik did last July, but we ignore those people who inspired him at our peril,” said Nick Lowles, director of Hope Not Hate. In July last year, Breivik killed 77 people in a bomb and gun attack in the Norwegian capital Oslo and a nearby island.
Despite having confessed to both attacks, the Norwegian mass murderer has reject criminal guilt saying the massacre was necessary to protect Norway from being overrun by Muslims. An hour before committing the massacre, Breivik emailed leaders of far-right extremists in Britain saying the killing was to protect Europe from being “overwhelmed by Islam”. The findings of researchers at 'Hope Not Hate' come as London mayoral candidate Ken Livingstone said it was “Muslims’ turn now” to be discriminated against asserting “Right-wing politicians pander to bigotry”. English Defence League (EDL) has been identified by the report as one of the key figures fueling anti-Islam extremism. Last month, a study showed that EDL and other far-right groups in Britain believed it was legitimate and inevitable to take up arms against religious minorities.
