How Jihad Influenced the Norway Massacre

Hudson New York 9 August 2011
By Raymond Ibrahim

In his manifesto, Anders Breivik, the perpetrator of the Norway massacre, in which 80 people were killed and many wounded, mentioned the Crusades and aspects of it as they had been an inspirational factor to him. Predictably, Western elites—especially through the mainstream media—have begun a new round of moral, cultural, and historical relativism, some even conflating the terrorist with former President Bush, who once used the word "crusade."

Different Rules for Different Fools

Gates of Vienna 8 August 2011

"The European Union is the principal motor behind the Islamization of Europe. It is formally surrendering an entire continent to Islam while destroying established national cultures, and is prepared to harass those who disagree with this policy.

"This is the greatest organized betrayal in Western history.”

— Fjordman

The above quote from Fjordman is dismayingly appropriate to his current situation. He has been demonized in the media and forced into the public spotlight. Now he does not know whom to fear more, his own government or the combined forces of the Islamic zealots and "anti-fascists”. It’s no wonder he decided to quit blogging and go into hiding.
