Mass murderer Anders Breivik told an Oslo court today that if Norway would have adopted a “Danish level” of cultural and immigration policies, he would never have committed his massacre.

Reports from the trial indicated that Breivik pointed to the outcome of the 2009 elections in Norway as motivation for his attacks, which claimed the lives of 77. He said that if Norwegians had voted in a new government, his attacks in Oslo and the island of Utøya would not have occurred.

“If there would have been a shift of power and Norway would have adopted a Danish level when it comes to cultural politics and immigration, I would not have undertaken any action at all,” Breivik said in court.

He blamed the 2009 election results on the media, saying that they had not adequately covered immigrant-related violence in France and Sweden and that the media actively supports the notion of multiculturalism.

"If the media had followed the rules for once, I would have not carried out an attack," he said.

This wasn’t the first time Breivik expressed admiration for Denmark’s stringent immigration policies. In his 1,500 page manifesto, he praised Denmark’s approach in the “ideological war” against Islam as “the only Scandinavian country with some spine left”.

He also pointed to Denmark as being a leader in his perceived battle between Islam and the West.

“My bet is still on Britain, or possibly Denmark, as the first Western country to face a civil war due to Muslim immigration,” he wrote.

Breivik’s trial in Oslo is expected to last ten weeks.
