Mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik today said he carried out his sickening killing spree 'for Norway' and boasted that, if he could, then he would do it all again.
Reading from a prepared statement, he said he was 'motivated by goodness not evil' and that his murder of 77 people was 'the most spectacular and sophisticated attack on Europe since World War II'.
He lashed out at Norwegian and European governments for embracing immigration and multiculturalism and said he killed 'to save future generations'.
Salute: For the second day in a row, killer Breivik clenched his his fist in front of him as he entered the Oslo courtroom
During his rambling one hour and 20 minute rant the 33-year-old was stopped on four occasions - three times by the senior judge Wenche Elisabeth Arntzen - and once by counsel for the families.
On each occasion it was suggested he had either overstepped his time frame for his address - or said things that were unnecessarily hurtful.
Wow, so there is a time limit on the mans reasons for his actions. He is providing reason for his actions as a defence of those actions, if he isnt allowed to speak freely then would this trial be valid?
In one particularly odious pronouncement he spoke of the Labour party’s youth wing group camping on the island of Utoya where he killed 69 youngsters.
He said: 'The majority of young people were brainwashed and naive, indoctrinated by schools or their parents.
I agree with what he is saying, I dont agree with attacking the brainwashed children though. If he had attacked those who do the brainwashing he would have made a better impact.
Dismissed: Lay judge Thomas Indreboe posted comments online saying Breivik should be executed
'They were not innocents but they actively upheld multi-cultural values. Many people had leading positions in the Labour Party youth wing and were on county boards.
'They were in many ways similar to Hitler Youth at an indoctrination camp.' In justifying his actions Breivik's prepared statement also saw him discuss everything from Hitler to 'Multiculturalism in Luton'.
He even found time to quote from surveys conducted in Britain about multiculturalism and to mention Enoch Powell’s infamous 1968 ‘Rivers of Blood’ speech - in which the late Tory politician warned of the perceived dangers of greater immigration from Commonwealth countries.
So again he is giving valid and factual statistics which show the deliberate destruction of the white nations. The difference is that there are those who care about their race and community and the authorities who dont give a damn.
Breivik began by describing himself as a member of the ‘Norwegian European Resistance Movement’ before hitting out at those who had described him as 'naive , mean, insane, psychotic, a necrophiliac - and a Narcissist who only wants attention'.
He then argued he was none of these but a 'Nationalist' responsible for the most ‘sophisticated and spectacular act’ since the Second World War.
Warming to his address he told of how Marxists and Liberals had brainwashed the young in Norway and Europe by infiltrating schools and colleges and how there was ‘now no democracy in Norway.’
Turning to Britain he spoke of a recent survey which suggested 69 per cent of the population within the UK sees the issue of immigrations as a ‘major or great problem.’
He added that another survey, he claimed came from the Times newspaper in February 2010, had reported that ‘three out of five English believe that the UK has become dysfunctional because of multiculturalism.’
He said the same views were held by man people in ‘Norway, Sweden, Germany and France.’
He then defended his actions on July 22 last year as he went on: 'I would have done it again because offences against my people - and many partisans - are in many ways just as bad.'
Breivik added that Europe had prevented any democracy since Hitler came to power before the Second World War.
As he read from his prepared statement he apologised at one point about the time being taken - but insisted he would continue to read from an address that he had already cut from 20 pages to 13 and added after 35 minutes: ‘There are five pages left.
'Breivik claimed he had been a ‘victim’ himself as he insisted it was vital he explain the reasons behind his actions as he added: 'I’m not scared at the prospect of being in a prison - I was born in a prison and I continued to live in a prison.'
After a further interruption from the senior judge Breivik said he must finish his address because it formed the 'basis of my whole defence.'
Drawing to a close he added: 'I was born and grew up in a conflict zone that is Oslo. The Labour Party bought flats in West Oslo and handed them out to Muslims.
'Muslims want autonomy under Sharia law in places like Luton, Paris and Marseille.'
Comparing himself to Red Indian chiefs such as Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse he then added: 'Were they terrorists because they fought for indigenous rights? No they were heroes and not terrorists.'
Breivik ended his statement by saying: 'The attacks on July 22 were a preventive strike.
'I acted in self-defence on behalf of my people, my city, my country. I therefore demand to be found innocent of the charges.'
Later under cross examination Breivik said that he gave himself a ‘mandate to protect the Norwegian people’ by his actions.
He added: 'I know what happened on July 22 was gruesome - but it was cruel and necessary. I was involved in a suicide attack - and I did not expect to survive the day.'
Later during cross-examination Breivik was asked what had made him ‘give up on democracy’ after initially becoming a young member of the Norwegian Progress Party
He told the court he had joined neo-Nazi gangs after reaching his late teens in the western district of Oslo where he lived at the time.
He said: 'I became involved in maybe 20 confrontations with Muslims in Norway. What affected me most was something that happened when I was 16 or 17-years-old.
'The Muslims came to our area and robbed people, they raped people and they did not have any consequences for their actions.
'Those who tried to organise themselves against them were called racists and Neo-Nazis straight away - and that was unfair.'
He also said he was inspired by the Al Qaeda terror network and said: 'We have attempted to introduce new traditions for militant nationalists in Europe and we have taken a bit from Al Qaeda and Islamists including the use of martyrdom.
'Al Qaeda is the most successful militant group in the world and I believe militant nationalists in Europe have a great deal to learn from them.
'The resistance movement since World War Two has been pathetic and we have to introduce these new traditions.'
Breivik's statement and much of his five day testimony is not being broadcast by any television media for fear he is using it as a platform to promote his extremist views.
The trial in an Oslo court house started yesterday when Breivik, in dark suit and gold tie, walked into court sporting a huge grin and oozing defiance.
Aware that the eyes of world's media were upon him, the far-Right extremist waited for police to remove his handcuffs before performing a closed-fist, Nazi-style salute for the cameras.
Breivik smirked at footage of his devastating bomb attack which claimed eight lives in the centre of Oslo last summer.
He was nonchalant as prosecutors listed graphic details of how 69 victims, mainly teenagers, died during his gun rampage on the island of Utoya that same day in July.
At one point during the first day of his ten-week trial he broke down and wept – but not for his innocent victims. His eyes welled up as a 12-minute video of his own deranged right-wing 'manifesto' was shown.
It is accompanied by an 1,800-page document in which he calls for an end to 'Muslim infiltration of Europe' and the multiculturalism he so despises.
The first 80 minutes of proceedings at Oslo District Court were taken up with naming those he killed on July 22 last year.
An impassive Breivik simply sat and stared at court paperwork before him.
There was no flicker of emotion from the 33-year-old self-confessed killer as details were given of the horrific injuries suffered by those who died after he planted a van bomb in the centre of the Norwegian capital.
The sickening list of pistol and gunshot wounds suffered by those on the island of Utoya, where he went after the bombing, left him similarly untroubled.
Such was the horror of the graphic descriptions of their injuries that Norwegian TV, broadcasting proceedings live to the nation, blanked out the details.
The court was shown pictures of Breivik wearing paramilitary uniforms and posing with the guns he would use to kill so many innocent victims.
At the start of the trial he conceded he was behind the bombing and shootings which left 77 dead but added: 'I admit to the acts – but not criminal guilt.'
He claimed he acted in self-defence to protect Norway from Muslims by attacking the left-leaning political party he blamed for the country's liberal immigration policies.
Rejecting the authority of the court, he called it a vehicle of the 'multiculturalist' political parties in power in Norway.
Breivik could face a maximum 21-year prison sentence or an alternate custody arrangement that would keep him locked up as long as he is considered a menace to society.
Breivik was an Oslo teenager living with his mother when he dropped out of secondary school in 1997.
He began working for a telesales firm in its customer service department but several attempts to start business ventures failed.
Breivik finally made some money when he started a business called Diploma.com in 2002, selling false educational certificates, giving him enough money to move out of his mother's flat and bankroll his massacre.
The Knights Templar
He told police he was a resistance fighter in a far-right militant group modelled on the medieval Knights Templar, who fought during the Crusades.
Officers could not find any such organisation – despite Breivik claiming he even travelled to London for a meeting – and the prosecutor Svein Holden told the court: 'In our opinion, such a network does not exist.'
Between 2006 and 2007, Breivik became obsessed with the online role-playing game World of Warcraft.
The bomb factory
As Breivik became immersed in his 'crusade' to rid Norway of Muslims he began purchasing police uniforms and badges, guns and ammunition, and bomb ingredients.
He spent more than £25,000 on 11 credit cards. Last year he rented a farm 100 miles north of Oslo, where he registered himself as a business cultivating 'root and beet' items. This enabled him to order vast amounts of fertiliser to make his van bomb.
The Oslo blast
A week before the atrocity Breivik rented two vans from an Avis outlet in Oslo – a Volkswagen and a smaller Fiat Duplo. The VW was loaded with explosives and the Fiat was his transport to Utoya. On July 22 he posted his 'manifesto' on the internet using a computer in a small room at his mother's home.
The court was shown CCTV footage of Breivik parking the larger van, containing a 2,000lb bomb, outside the entrance to the offices of the prime minister and minister of justice at 3.17pm.
After lighting a fuse with a burn time of seven minutes he was seen walking away towards his getaway car.
In the moments before the explosion 32-year-old blast victim Jon Vegard Lervag was seen walking towards the back of the van. There were gasps in the court as the screen filled with a yellow fireball.
As the devastating blast and the death of the innocent passer-by shown was on screen, Breivik looked on impassively, merely raising his eyebrows as the bomb went off.
Roll call of death
Reciting the names of the Oslo and Utoya victims took court prosecutor Inga Bejer Engh more than 80 minutes. Among the eight who died in and around the government building was 61-year-old Hanne Marie Orvik Endresen.
She had been in the reception area and suffered sickening injuries to her intestine and abdomen. But it was the sheer detail of what happened when Breivik got to the island and began to kill the young Labour party supporters that will stick in the memory.
The youngest victim was 14-year-old Sharidyn Svebbak-Bohn who was shot in the lungs and chest by Breivik. She had been trying to shelter on an escarpment at the water's edge. Moments earlier she had heard the screams of 17-year-old Sondre Dale who was shot four times through the throat and chest.
In the café on the island 18-year-old Bendik Ellingsen was shot a total of eight times – with bullets also entering his head twice. Another café victim was Aleksander Eriksen,16, shot six times in the head.
One victim who thought he might escape Breivik was 16-year-old Andreas Gronnesby, but as he ran away he fell off a cliff near the island's West Point. He was found dead in the water with a fractured pelvis.
Hakon Odegaard, 17, also tried to swim from the island to escape Breivik's bullets. He was found drowned.
