The brutal murder of dozens of innocent Norwegian civilians several days ago has shocked many and got many tongs loose. Often something serious has to happen before people start to open their eyes or react against some situation.

And the world has come into a situation were we need to pen our eyes and have to face an evolution of transferring people and breeding ideas which are not so ethical and not worthy of a civilised human.

We have to face systems that bring together religion, strategy, politics, and law within a single organizational structure, and others which try to avoid any mingling. Several people oppose the globalisation. People feel as if they are pushed in the corner by people coming from some other countries, who do not seem to want to adopt to the rules or attitudes of the new environment.
This causes serious problems.

We as Christians we should have an open mind to all sorts of cultures and also to other religions. That does not mean we do have to take over ideas from those religions, but we do have to accept them as a possible means to survive for those people.

We can try to convert them, but we may never force our believes to someone else. It is God who gives the faith, and not us.

We as Christians should also be on the lookout for people who try to foster wrong ideas about how to go with other people.

The self-confessed mass murderer of 76 people in Norway was an apparently normal youth who showed no signs of what he was planning even in the months right before the massacre, his ex-stepmother Tove Oevermo told The Associated Press.

The world once more could find that such normal looking persons could easily grow out to become a monster, when their environment does not bring enough affection and attention to them and when they get in contact with the wrong ideas.

We have the responsibility to look out if no damaging ideas are spread under the population. Ideas which oppose the Mosaic Laws we have to be careful for. Basic ethics and peace loving ideas should form the base of our society, not hate against other persons.

We do have to face a world were there are several sorts of religions and non-theist believes. Atheists and believers should find a way to live together peacefully. We as Christians do have to take that peace as our priority.

Therefore we should see what is going on in the minds of many people. The growing immigrants can put a burden on many, certainly when they become confronted by a lot of violence seemingly from that infiltraitng group.

The attacks of Breivik may be called a sign of "growing anger" in Europe against Muslim immigrants. But he killed Germanic people of a Christian faith.We can note an upcoming  virulent anti-immigrant, anti-Islamic rhetoric. We do not deny the existence or even danger of Islamic fundamentalist groups, but we also see the danger of other fundamentalist groups which are finding a culture medium.

People should look at what happened in Oslo and understand that there is growing anger in Europe, but they should tackle it at the base.

Europe has the problem with her native-born populations aging, shrinking and dying.  Europe's nations have not discovered how to maintain their prosperity without immigrants. Because of wrong political decisions several of those immigrants who have come - from the Caribbean, Africa, the Middle East, South Asia - have been slow to learn the language and have failed to attain the educational and occupational levels of Europeans. And the welfare states of Europe are breaking under the burden.  So it becomes time that we give hands and do something about it.

Some adhere their biased ideas, brought forward by their leaders or preachers. In the Islamic world as in the Christian world there are doom preachers who cast off the others as the wrong people we have to dispose of.

It is not only the Muslims we should be afraid of. There are also the extreme fundamentalist white people. Fundamentalist Christians also could be a serious trait.
