The Crackdown on the European Counterjihad

For a complete archive of Fjordman’s writings, see the multi-index listing in the Fjordman Files.


Pages: 1 2

One of the experts on contemporary Islamophobia subpoenaed in the trial against Anders Behring Breivik is the Norwegian writer Øyvind Strømmen. Prior to this case he was virtually unknown, but he has enjoyed a tremendous career boost thanks to Breivik’s evil acts, and is now hailed as a “leading expert” on the Counterjihad, a claim which triggers roars of laughter from those who actually know this movement. A lucky opportunist, Strømmen sells his books by labeling me a dangerous “Fascist.” He says very little about real problems caused by mass immigration to Western countries, but a great deal about how evil any opposition to mass immigration is.

Strømmen also had an article published in the prestigious American magazine Foreign Affairs, a journal published by an influential foreign-policy think tank, the Council on Foreign Relations. The CFR usually supports the line that Islam is not a problem in itself, only certain “militant Islamists.” Writing there about what he termed “violent Counter-Jihadism,” which he linked to Breivik’s mass murder, Strømmen concluded that “It is crucial that law-enforcement authorities and intelligence agencies better understand the true relationship between the words and ideas of Internet-based counter-jihadists and the real-world violence they seem to have inspired.”

The official line promoted in the mainstream media, for instance by Mina Hauge Nærland in the newspaper Aftenposten, is that I am an “extremist” whereas Strømmen is an expert on extremists. It is unclear how he earned this title just by reading a few blogs, however. I’ve seen former US President George W. Bush multiple times on TV. Does that make me an expert on Bush, to be consulted by the press and the police?

At the public broadcaster NRK, Tarjei Skirbekk honored Strømmen’s book The Dark Net with a very positive review. I’m referred to as one of the foremost ideologues “on the extreme Right in Europe and a leading carrier of Fascist ideology.” Strømmen spends much time discussing various proto-Fascists, one of them being the Italian author Oriana Fallaci. Fallaci was an anti-Fascist throughout her life and saw the struggle against Islam in the final years of her life as the logical conclusion of this – but let’s not let facts get in the way of a good story.

I have been forced to pay thousands of kroner to this public broadcaster out of my own pocket for years, as have most Norwegian citizens. I challenged journalist Knut Hoem from NRK, who reviewed a related book about the dangers of Islamophobia, about why his channel never seems to review books such as Marked for Death by Geert Wilders. After all, as a public service institution supposedly dedicated to balanced “quality” journalism, shouldn’t they present both sides of the story? Predictably, I received no reply to this question.

For the record, in all of my writings – and I’d estimate that I have published more than a million words online, although I lost track years ago – I haven’t called for colonizing other peoples’ countries a single time. Not once.

What it takes to be labeled a “right-wing extremist” and almost a “Nazi” in our age is to be European and support the self-determination and self-preservation of European civilization and the ethnic groups and nations which historically created it. Self-preservation, the very essence of life all the way down to bacteria, is now systematically being denied to Europeans. If you are a person of European extraction, you become an “extremist” not by wanting to colonize other people’s countries, but simply by resisting the colonization of your country by others.

In the regional daily Bergens Tidende, Norway’s largest newspaper published outside the capital city of Oslo, the columnist Frode Bjerkestrand wrote a review of Strømmen’s book about dangerous right-wing extremists such as myself, illustrated by a photo of mean-looking neo-Nazis on the march. Bjerkestrand dubbed it “insightful” and said that it brings light into the mindset of extremism and terrorism in Europe, with its “language of hate.”

Strømmen published an essay in the newspaper VG entitled “The Prophet Peder Jensen.” Yes, the Prophet, peace be upon me. He there stated that “Fjordman has contributed to constructing the idea world of the terrorists. He has laid foundations for the infrastructure of terrorism. Peder Jensen from Ålesund is the Sayyid Qutb of the Counterjihad, he is the ideologue who gave the terrorists a push into a dark and hateful world.”

Notice the plural here: terrorists. This is not an error; it is there in the original text. Not only is Mr. Strømmen largely blaming me for pushing Breivik into mass murder of 77 people; he’s suggesting that there is a veritable wave of terrorists out there, all inspired by my evil writings. And he is lauded as an “expert” in the field!

  • SCREW SOCIALISM

    SCREW norway.

    One day norway will wake up to the folly of socialism and appeasing islamofascism, but it will be too late.

    • Drakken

      You will be very surprised when the the ghosts of the Vikings are awakened. The Quislings of the left are scared to death of their own people, so it does not bode well for them, the lamposts of Oslo will be filled soon enough.

    • RUI

      That's actually called "not waking up".
      Stick a fork in it Norway, you're done.

  • Newspaniard

    I still fail to see why looneys from the left align themselves with islamofascism. Who are the Nazis here?

    • patriot

      The left align themselves with islamofascist because deep down they are cowards. It is that simple. They are like the little kids siding with the bullies in the schoolyard hoping to be spared.

    • Guest

      For an insight into the European hard lefts fascination with all things Islam, google Chris Harman's "The Prophet and the Proletariat".

      • BayouCoyote

        Thanx for the link.

      Thats not hard to understand, Both have a deep seated hatred for Democracy and a love for Corporate Socialism.

      I'm confused, how is this in any way, "right-wing"?

      Maybe right wing has different meaning in Eurabia? I don't know. You see the same annoying misconseption (propaganda) here in the U.S. In response to Newspaniard and those who replied to his comment, I can sum it up in one term "unholy alliance". Many are as some say, "cowards" however when you speak in terms of why the left or lib/progs align themselves with Islamists is because they share mutual interests, THE DESTRUCTION OF THE U.S.A. AND ALL OF WESTERN CIVILIZATION. They Islamists are using them and their passionate hatred for the fundamental values of the U.S.along with those who encourage our dependence on other Islamic nations for fossil fuels. The do this by halting or demonizing those who want to drill in our own country. (cont'd)

    • RoguePatriot6

      Unfortunately for them, people in their positions, as history has shown, usually are the first to wind up in mass graves once they have served their purpose for helping tyranical ideologies or governments achieve their goals.
      If you look at what a lot of the lib/progs support and protest for and bounce these off of shariah law, how long do you think they would last once the Islamists have achieved conquest? When these folks in our country attack the COTUS and slam Christianity as if they were the true oppressors they inadvertantly attack the very mechanism that's shielding them from the type of law that demand their executions.

      It's kind of like watching a foolish monkey chip away at the branch that's holding it from falling to it's death.

      • RoguePatriot6

        The true Islamists violently hate what alot of lib/progs stand for and ultimately hate them however most liberal/progressives are too ignorant and overlook this obvious fact. They serve as useful lapdogs for their agenda during this phase of it. The one thing that I will give Islamists credit for is they too have enough common sense to realize how destructive alot of what liberals in this country promote (even though I don't condone how Islamists would deal with them), are to any society and so they they support them and there protests for the time being because they know it will only help them destroy Western Cilvilization.

  • MikeWood

    "If you are a person of European extraction, you become an “extremist” not by wanting to colonize other people’s countries, but simply by resisting the colonization of your country by others." Absolutely true, the Left, in cahoots with the Muslim Brotherhood, want to render Europeans completely defenceless. The success of their strategy is amazing. The Left has such a fascist mentality.

    I am on your side, Fjordman. I am proud of you. Vikings kept the old ways longer because Catholics of the early middle ages were too influenced by Muslims and therefore overly sexist as sompared to thse we now call vikings. It has been a long battle of godd versus evil and you, my Fjordman are on the side of good.

    • curmudgeon

      i will have to look long and hard to find a stupider comment. in the earyl middle ages, there was a dual assault on europe, from the south and east by murderous islam, from the north by murderous vikings. sexist? the only sexism was the universal practice by norseman and muslims to rape their victims before killing or enslaving them. learn a little history and you wont have to look so stupid. the "influence" of islam on catholics in the realy middle ages, and thereafter, was that islam murdered, raped, and enslaved them, like they do everyone else.

      • ajnn

        you hugely exaggerate the extent and impact of the viking raids.

        in addition, the civil laws of the vikings were very respectful of women including marriage, divorce and ownership of real peoperty.

  • reflecting 1a

    One has to remeber that there were large numbers of citizens in Nazi occupied Europe who joined the SS and other Nazi military and fought for Germany. One should put these appeasing , pandering writer hacks in the media into historical context.

    There are many horrors experienced by Europeans from infidel-hater Muslims. Beautiful, peaceful, SAFE Europe, is gone forever because of massive Muslim colonization of Europe.

    The ethnic cleansing of Bury Park – Luton 2
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AAi78m0pd44&fe

    In a shocking and hostile act against Europeans and Brits, Western leaders imported massive numbers of Muslims into Europe and the UK, to such an extent, that Europe and Britain will become Islamic nations ruled by Islamic Sharia Law, within years. This is ethnic cleansing. A wicked crime against humanity. Replacing the indigenous people with another people (Muslims), who openly state their goal is Muslim conquest of Europe and Britain.

    It is the greatest BETRAYAL in ALL of human history.

  • Linda Rivera

    The most WICKED LIE is perpetrated against innocents: "between the words and ideas of Internet-based counter-jihadists and the real-world violence they seem to have inspired.”

    Since 9/11, Muslims have committed more than 18,953 deadly terror attacks. http://www.thereligionofpeace.com/

    Terror attacks by all other religions: NONE.

    Muslims who were NOT terrorists, CELEBRATED in countries around the world, the cruel slaughter of our cherished 3,000 innocents.

    THOUSANDS of Palestinian Authority Muslims who were NOT terrorists, CELEBRATED with great joy and delight, the barbaric murders of our precious 3,000, by dancing in the streets, passing out candy, and firing into the air. Muslims, Americans are immorally forced to finance with their taxes.

    It is we, who understand the horrors, great suffering and severe persecution by Muslims that will befall us, if, or when, our countries become Islamic, who are condemned, demonized, slandered and LIED about.

    The Golden Rule does not exist in Islam. There is no love or mercy in the totalitarian, political-religious system of Islam.

    We are treated as the enemy because we are patriotic, law-abiding, peaceful non-Muslims, who believe deeply in the Golden Rule: to treat people the same way we want to be treated.

    We are treated as the enemy because we believe in human rights: that Islam must never be allowed to conquer our countries and that Muslim immigration must stop for our protection and survival.

  • Linda Rivera

    The Koran commands Muslims to conquer ALL nations and subjugate intensely hated non-Muslims under barbaric Islamic sharia law where defenseless non-Muslims have NO human rights and females are treated as inferior beings.

    ALL Western governments have a MORAL RESPONSIBILITY to shout out these truths to their nations! To remain silent about this EVIL, is a crime against humanity.

      People really should read surah 9. It's an eye opener.

      9:5 Then, when the sacred months have passed, slay the idolaters wherever ye find them, and take them (captive), and besiege them, and prepare for them each ambush. But if they repent and establish worship and pay the poor-due, then leave their way free. Lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.

  • No Dhimmi traitor

    This vile scum of the earth traitor Øyvind Strømmen works for the Council of Foreign Relations, an elitist group that manipulates humanity to its own end.

    Do this scumbag's followers know that he is thus not "one of the people?"

    What an evil piece of trash. In the meantime, through sane, scientific and scholarly writings, you, Fjordman, are trying to preserve your own people from genocide by the most violent, hateful and misogynistic cult on the earth today.

    SHAME ON HIM. What an utter disgrace.

    Never in all my LIBERAL life would I suspect that there would be so many EVIL people pushing such despicable agendas as the Islamization of the world.

    This deranged cretin should be locked up away from polite society. In bygone days, he would be recognized as the evil TRAITOR that he is and summarily dealt with.

    Dealing with the enemy – that's TREASON! What the hell is wrong with the Norwegian government to aid and abet a TRAITOR like this filthy creature?

  • watsa46

    The term islamophobia is totally misused. It must be rational fear of Islam and Islamists. Rational Islamo-fear!

    • Joseph

      Far more better term is ISLAMONAUSEA.

  • Linda Rivera

    Obama invited his BIG favorites, the Muslim Brotherhood, to his speech in Cairo.

    Behind the scenes, America worked to oust U.S ally, MODERATE Mubarak, in order to bring to power U.S leaders' top FAVORITES, the Muslim Brotherhood, whose stated goal is the DESTRUCTION of civilization and global Islamic CONQUEST.

    Since moderate Mubarak's ouster, attacks on Egypt's Christians, their homes, churches and businesses have increased enormously and so has the kidnappings, rapes, violent conversion to Islam and forcible marriage of female Christian children by Muslims.

    Egypt's police cooperate fully in the kidnapping of hated infidel, Christian children! THERE IS NO ONE TO HELP THE CHRISTIANS! God help them!

  • No Dhimmi traitor

    The gall of this demented woman-hating traitor Øyvind Strømmen – I'm guessing he's got a male Muslim lover, probably a Saudi – to use the word "Eurofascism" when it is HE who is the fascist. The real "Eurofascism" the spreading of violent, women-enslaving Islam, you disgrace to humanity.

    Again, a vile, filthy traitor.

  • No Dhimmi traitor

    Meanwhile, while this scumbag traitor Øyvind Strømmen is enabling violent women-haters to thrive in Norway, some WOMEN are risking their LIVES by speaking out AGAINST the misogynist pricks that Øyvind Strømmen is apparently fondling.
    http://www.newsinenglish.no/2012/05/26/women-won-

    "Louiza Louhibi, an atheist who grew up with Muslim parents, has attracted front-page attention in Norway, first for speaking out on behalf of rape victims and then for alerting police and anti-terror investigators to videos on Islamic websites that threatened Norway’s royal family and members of the government.

    "Louhibi, a 21-year-old rape victim herself, ended up being the target of harassment and threats for her efforts to counter the shame many rape victims feel, and especially for reporting the threats made against Norwegian officials. She received horrific messages and was the subject of online debate of the lowest sort on extremist websites, where some wrote that she’d deserved to be raped (allegedly for wearing western-style clothing and daring to walk alone at night), that she had no right to complain about being raped, and that she even deserved to be killed or raped again….

    "Meanwhile, Sara Azmeh Rasmussen, who immigrated to Norway from Syria in 1995, has been carrying on her efforts to promote tolerance, improve the rights of persons regardless of sexual identity and criticize Islam over what she views as its lack of tolerance and repression of women and homosexuals. Rasmussen has been a frequent participant in demonstrations and commentator in the media, not least in newspaper Aftenposten."

    Since scumbag traitor Øyvind Strømmen is busily enabling jihadists to terrorize Norway's royal family and government, one can only hope that he will eventually be treated as the treasonous viper that he so obviously is.

  • dos

    Islam idea -> hundreds of thousand terrorists v.s. "Islamophobia" idea -> one terrorist. It's obvious.

  • joe

    They say history repeats itself .
    European countries are repeating Hitler's reign.
    This time they are hiding it behind a mask of anti racism and islomophobia but it is essentially the same program.
    Victimizing the young and women is the fast track to gaining submissiveness in large populations .
    The growing antisemitism in Europe .
    The suggestions of and push for laws to control free speech,internet access,thoughts and isolating and disparaging those who do not agree.
    The controled media that hides and distorts the reality of the situation .

    Cowards and traitors like Øyvind Strømmen have no interest in anything but their self preservation and bank accounts.They would publicly hang fjordman right along with Breivik while supplying muslims with explosives to blow up synagogues .

    They are selling their country,citizens and heritage to a culture that plans on erasing them from history and force then to become soulless 3rd world slaves.

    Stand tall fjordman.We are with you in spirit .

    • dymphna

      Thank you, Joe.

      Your listing of the ways in which dawa is designed for the takeover and eradication of Norwegian culture is succinct.

      Judas-minded talking headslike Oyvind Strommen are guided first & foremost by Their own self-preservation. The level of grandiosity is matched only by the mean-spirited tenor of their "investigations".

      Norway is a totalitarian democracy.

  • Hellosnackbar

    The accusation that Peder is a fascist is a product of Mohammedans and their sympathisers who are fascists themselves.
    Islam is a supremacist,totalitarian,fascist religio-political cult.
    Their philosophy is slave-bondage to an imaginary sky fairy called Allah.
    One can only believe that belief in Allah,Mohammed and the rest of the Mohammedans barbarians is a dangerous acquired mental illness.
    Why would any sane person commit himself /herself to self imposed slavery.
    Why don't Muslims convert to the worship of Odin?

  • Schlomotion

    They were too generous in calling Peder Jensen a prophet. They should have called him a rotten fruit stand dealer. It's not exactly prophecy when you pen a spinoff of Bat Ye'or's work or if you are mostly looking behind at what you said on the internet with a word counter.

    Seems to me that the government and the big press are working together seamlessly in Norway. This is really bad news to dissidents and remnants of democracy in the country.

    I dont think we have much time left in Europe anymore to operate in public. Currently EU seems to work as a coordinator and a catalyt in this process. EU lays out basic formula for new oppressive legislation and national governments implement them. The progress is fast and since independent media is still almost nonexistent, I don't see any real counterring force against the destruction of freedom in Europe.

  • John

    Fjordman – Why cant you start a political party? You can talk, I'm sure you can win a debate or two and you will get the golden salery and after 12 years you got full pension – its make you rich for life. And you can do something good for your country and make our political views accepted. I'm sure you can get a lots of votes.

    Some most be the leader an you are the one Fjordman – time to step up and take responsibility!

    Sabbath goyim like Fjordman are the real traitors to Norway. Its no wonder he is given a voice on Zionist Jew Horowitz’s ragpiece
