A few months ago a classified internal document from the Federal Office of Criminal Investigation (BKA) from Germany stated, "We must assume that there will be further xenophobic acts of violence by individuals or perpetrator groups in the form of bodily injury also resulting in death in some cases, arson attacks (against asylum seekers' homes, for example) and, in some isolated cases, also homicide."
Investigators pointed then to the attacks perpetrated in Norway by Anders Behring Breivik as an example of the possibilities.
This is absolutely true. Just a few days ago a 45-year-old academic researcher from Poland has been arrested on suspicion of planning to detonate explosives in a vehicle at the Parliament building during a budget debate.
The man's motives were described as "nationalistic, xenophobic and anti-Semitic" and he is also described by Polish officials as having been inspired and fascinated by Anders Behring Breivik, who killed 77 people in Norway last year.
In Spain has happened something similar. In October, a young man from Mallorca planned to use explosives to blow up the University of Illes Balears. He was interested in Adolf Hitler and just a few months before had read the ‘Mein Kampf’; at home had made racist comments and shown repulse among Jews and black people.
