Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The only thing about this massacre that doesn't fit the bog-standard post-war right-wing assassination pattern is that he went after a large number of mid-value targets rather than a few high-value targets

Hm, I don't know about that. The OAS terror campaign to break the Evian agreements, Bologna station bombing, Oklahoma bombing, Baruch Goldstein's massacre in the Cave of the Patriarchs, the Oktoberfest attack in Munich, David Copeland's nail bomb attacks in London, Austria's Franz Fuchs the letter bomber, the Gypsie killers in Hungary, the Nijvel gang in Belgium, the Shankill Butchers in Northern Ireland, any number of lethal skinhead attacks on immigrants and minorities and homeless? If we go beyond nominal right/left and include nominally leftist extreme nationalists, there are also the acts of ETA or splinters of the IRA.
