Terrorist Suspect Traced His Radicalization to a Visit to France


PARIS—When the 28-year-old man charged with murder in the terrorist attacks on two mosques in New Zealand posted a manifesto on social media claiming responsibility, he described himself as “just a ordinary White man” from a working-class family in Australia. What fueled his animosity to Muslims, he wrote, was a 2017 visit to Western Europe and, in particular, France. Many of the ideas contained in the lengthy screed—including its title “The Great Replacement”—echo the writings of 72-year-old French author Renaud Camus.
