The Americans Who Inspired the Norwegian Mass Murderer

Thursday, August 04, 2011
Pam Geller and Robert Spencer
Anders Behring Breivik, the man who murdered 77 people in Norway, is apparently quite the fan of American right-winger haters of Islam, based on the citations in his 1,500-page manifesto.
The American most cited (55 times) in Breivik’s writings is Robert Spencer, director of Jihad Watch at the David Horowitz Freedom Center. Spencer is concerned with the alleged Islamization of America, and has worked hard to purge the Republican Party of Muslim-Americans. Anti-Muslim neoconservative Daniel Pipes earned 18 mentions from Breivik.
Breivik also cited neoconservative Frank Gaffney and his opposition to Turkey joining the European Union. Gaffney’s think tank, the Center for Security Policy, created a website to protest the so-called “Ground Zero Mosque” in Manhattan. He’s also accused President Barack Obama of being a secret agent of the Muslim Brotherhood and claimed radical Muslims have infiltrated the top levels of American government.
Pamela Geller, author of the blog Atlas Shrugs, is mentioned by Breivik for her postings that attacked the “victory mosque.” Geller is of the belief that Muslims are an inherent threat to American society.
Brigitte Gabriel is another anti-Muslim activist mentioned in the manifesto. Gabriel has written several books attacking Islam and is a friend of Representative Peter King (R-New York), chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee.

i fear breivik is the shape of things to come, people r fed up with islam and its failure to accept criticism and freedom of speech, we see in the news everyday the atrocities committed by muslims, there isnt a day goes by that u dont hear about a suicide attack, beheadings, terror attack, stonings, ect. muslims do not assimilate, integrate well like other groups do, they whine and demand special treatment and follow their own laws. breivik just showed to the world that the multiculture elites r fair game, tho i do not agree with breivik methods of violence i do empathize with his frustration and concern over this multiculture failure, there is a growing backlash against islam spreading all over the west and if fear its beginning to get more violent.. u dont need writers or authors to ispire hatred of islam, islam does a good job of it by itself

wow, there must be billions of people out there that hate islam. all the wives of the thousands of dead soldiers, their families, friends and sympathizers in the hundreds of millions. so now we have have to put up with terrorists and those who hate islam for what it is. the governments could stop this now by outlawing islam as one big terrorist organization and preventing them infiltrating non-islamic countries. if they don't the killings, bombings and confrontations will continue and that is a fact. its always the innocent that suffer because these people are cowards. it's easy to single out one person, one group and call american islamophobes but their hate has sound foundations that can't be ignored.
