Anders Behring Breivik, the Norwegian who killed nearly 100 people on July 22 in a combined terror attack involving a car bombing in Oslo and a shooting rampage at an island summer camp, reportedly holds anti-Muslim and pro-Israel views, according to a 1,500 page screed the killer uploaded before embarking on his bloody work.
The manifesto, amounting to 1,500 pages, mentions Israel 359 times and “Jews” 324 times, His ramblings spell out his hatred for Muslims, Marxism and multiculturalism, and what the Jerusalem Post describes as "far-right Zionism."
Breivik condemns in the manifesto the Western media that he believes unfairly focuses on the failings of Israel, saying “western journalists again and again systematically ignore serious Muslim attacks and rather focus on the Jews.”
In criticizing left-wing Jews, Breivik writes that German Jews were disloyal to their country before the Second World War, “at least the so-called liberal Jews, similar to the liberal Jews today that oppose nationalism/Zionism and support multiculturalism. Jews that support multiculturalism today are as much of a threat to Israel and Zionism (Israeli nationalism) as they are to us. So let us fight together with Israel, with our Zionist brothers against all anti-Zionists, against all cultural Marxists/multiculturalists.”
Breivik says Israel is the Jewish homeland due to the persecution suffered by Jews at the hands of Muslims, saying “if one acknowledges that Islam has always oppressed the Jews, one accepts that Israel was a necessary refuge for the Jews fleeing not only the European but also the Islamic variety of anti-Judaism.”
The manifesto sets out Breivik's reasonings for the deadly attack: nationalism, and the growth of Islam in Europe.
Entitled "2083 - A European Declaration of Independence", the document says "as we all know, the root of Europe's problems is the lack of cultural self-confidence (nationalism)…this irrational fear of nationalistic doctrines is preventing us from stopping our own national/cultural suicide as the Islamic colonization is increasing annually ...You cannot defeat Islamization or halt/reverse the Islamic colonization of Western Europe without first removing the political doctrines manifested through multiculturalism/cultural Marxism."
Breivik professed no hatred for Muslims, however, saying “I have had several Muslim friends over the years, some of which I still respect.” He also expressed his sympathy for the people of Serbia, and blasted Norway’s support of the 1999 NATO bombing campaign on Serbia that stopped the expulsion of Kosovar Albanians by Serbian forces. He also denounced Norway's awarding of “the Nobel peace prize to an Islamic terrorist (Arafat) and appeasers of Islam.”
Norway's Anders Breivik is not a Christian fundamentalist
The murderer who took more than 70 lives in Norway, Anders Brevik, has been variously identified as a Freemason, Islamophobe, and a fundamentalist Christian. What is he?
Breivik issued the chilling instruction, “once you decide to strike, it is better to kill too many than not enough, or you risk reducing the desired ideological impact of the strike. Explain what you have done (in an announcement distributed prior to operation) and make certain that everyone understands that we, the free peoples of Europe, are going to strike again and again."
