“The Norway Attacks, 2011” — A View From Ireland

Gates of Vienna

Mark Humphrys, that rara avis — a libertarian, pro-American Dubliner — has fisked the Oslo murderer in a novel way: by comparing the killer’s views to his own (emphases in the original):

This sadistic, barbaric attack must be one of the strangest terror attacks ever. One would never think, from the killer’s online comments, that he was a mass murderer in waiting.

The killer was right-wing and anti-jihad, yes, but he was not a neo-Nazi (he was pro-Israel) or a white supremacist (he opposed the BNP because they are racist). He was Christian, but not a fanatic (he was pro-gay).

In fact he was apparently like me — liberal right. He was anti-racist, pro-gay and pro-Israel. So how on earth did someone like that become a terrorist against the West?

Perhaps he radically changed his politics since his last post to document.no in Oct 2010 (see below). Can we see any writings of his between Oct 2010 and July 2011?

Mark gives us some context for this latest atrocity…

“Police said it took them an hour from when they were first alerted to stop the massacre…”

Update: At FiveFeetofFury Kathy Shaidle has posted again, offering a brilliant array of links. Here is just one example:

Barry Rubin speaks VERY slowly for the benefit of the last remaining morons:

There have been over 10,000 Islamist terrorist attacks, many of them against Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus, and others. The number of such attacks against Muslims in the West or indeed in the world is perhaps one percent of that number.

Any terrorist who attacks Muslims or tries to kill other people because they work for governments or belong to a left-of-center political party, as in this case in Norway, will be denounced by his entire society, apprehended, and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. All of the media, all of the intellectuals, all of the government officials will denounce this person in the sharpest terms. This is hardly ever true in Muslim-majority countries.

Update 2:  At Blazing Cat Fur, A Double Tragedy for Norway

…If the cultural elite in Norway is more anti-Semitic than its counterparts in any other country in Europe, it has a great deal to do with the recognition that the more you like the Jews, the more you’ll antagonize the Muslims…

Update 3: At Gulag Bound, ‘Hacker Finds Emails Between Palin, Murdoch & Breivik’

…Someone is apparently committing fraud in the attempt to propagandize this horrible mass murder, as a chance to denigrate those who believe in such things as the Bible, America’s Declaration of Independence, and the U.S. Constitution…
