He would have us believe that the tensions we are witnessing in Europe today did not arise because the natives cannot walk the streets in safety in Berlin, Brussels, Birmingham and Marseilles, nor are they due to the Islamic suicide bombings in London or Madrid. The shadow of Fjordman looms large and covers the entire continent in darkness, barely 70 years after Hitler died.
The great irony here is that Breivik himself was deeply inspired by the Islamic Jihadist terror network al-Qaida and its ideologue Sayyid Qutb. He even mentioned him in court during the trial. Qutb represented the Muslim Brotherhood, whose members are currently been courted openly and invited for meetings and “dialogue” with Western governments, from European capital cities to Washington D. C. They’re being hailed as “moderates.”
But if the Muslim Brotherhood are moderate people and Counterjihadists are their non-Muslim equivalents, shouldn’t Counterjihadists be invited to high-level dialogue meetings with the EU and the US Government?
VG’s regular columnist Anders Giæver also compared me to a prophet in a later essay. He seemed to suggest that some people react as strongly to any criticism or mockery of Prophet Fjordman as they do to any criticism or mockery of Prophet Mohammed. Giæver allegedly received an unpleasant email from a reader after having written highly negative things about me. If it’s true, that’s unfortunate, of course, but VG has also written some very negative articles about me with published readers’ comments calling me a “right-wing extremist rat.”
Since the earliest days of Islam people who mock Mohammed or his teachings have run a very real risk of being murdered. This has become a part of his Sunna, or personal example. If you believe traditional Islamic sources, individuals such as the poetess Asma bint Marwan were murdered simply for mocking Mohammed. This is not something that is of mere historical interest, it remains a real threat. The Danish Mohammed cartoonists were threatened with death, and the cartoons triggered violent protests and deaths in different parts of the world.
We can safely assume that Anders Giæver exaggerated just a little bit with his comparisons – or perhaps a lot. To date, not many people around the world have been beheaded for insulting me or saying bad things about my texts. If that were the case, a substantial proportion of the international press would be headless by now. There is no great “stop the defamation against Fjordman” campaign underway at the United Nations, either.
In the daily Vårt Land, Strømmen strongly warned against giving those who are critical of Islam and mass immigration too much access to the mass media. This is the man who participated alongside the Norwegian Minister of Justice and the Police, Grete Faremo from the Labor Party, in a conference at the national Police University College on how the authorities and the police can work together more closely to prevent the spread of “extremism” – a term which often seems to overlap with those who disagree too vocally with the Social Democrats and their policies.
As usual, during this conference including the police authorities and the government, Strømmen highlighted me personally as representing one of the greatest threats Europe has faced since the Nazis. He did exactly the same thing at the Labor Party’s own conference about extremism in early 2012. Strømmen has also lectured members of the important government-appointed 22 July Commission, established to look into the causes of Breivik’s mass murder on 22 July 2011, about the supposedly large potential for violence among anti-Islamists.
Minister of Justice Grete Faremo has repeatedly emphasized the need to counteract so-called extremism on the Internet and wants the police to concentrate more resources on surveillance of this dangerous movement. Her policy closely mirrors the views of Øyvind Strømmen, who has earlier called for having more online police patrols on controversial websites and blogs. Kristin Halvorsen of the Socialist Left Party, a Minister in PM Jens Stoltenberg’s left-wing coalition government, has launched an Internet campaign against racism, xenophobia and Islamophobia.
Strømmen has previously voiced the view that Breivik’s mass murder was the logical conclusion of the postings on independent websites such as Gates of Vienna, Tundra Tabloids or Vlad Tepes blog. Western authorities unfortunately seem to agree with this viewpoint.
We can expect further clampdowns on those who voice any opposition to Islamization or Multiculturalism from the very same people who love the Muslim Brotherhood.
