Notes From the Margins…

Twilight in Gellerland

As an example of callous brutality and gimlet-eyed hatred, the latest take on the Norway killings by American ‘counter-jihadist’ Pamela Geller takes some beating. According to Geller, the Labour Party summer camp at Utoya was in fact an ‘anti-semitic indoctrination centre.’

How does she know this?  Because one of the survivors of the massacre told ABC news immediately afterwards that “Some of my  friends  tried to stop him [Breivik] by  talking  to him. Many people thought that it was a test …comparing it to how it is to live in Gaza.”  And in case there was any doubt, Geller reports a visit to Utoya by the Norwegian Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Store, who told the assembled youth that the Palestinians “must have their own state, the occupation must end, the wall must be demolished and it must happen now.”

Still uncertain about the dark purpose behind this seemingly innocent island? Well Geller has definitive proof, in the form of a photograph of smiling youths in a boat with Palestinian flags and banners calling for the defeat of the Gaza blockade.   All of which demonstrates that “Glenn Beck was not that far off when he compared it to the Hitlerjugend or Young Pioneers.”

And all this kinda puts Anders Breivik’s decision to massacre these kids in perspective don’t you think?   You don’t?   Well consider what Auntie Pamela has to tell y’all

Breivik was targeting the future leaders of the party responsible for flooding Norway with Muslims who refuse to assimilate, who commit major violence against Norwegian natives, including violent gang rapes, with impunity, and who live on the dole… all done without the consent of the Norwegians.
The day before the shooting, a pro-Palestinian rally was held.

But don’t think that Geller approved of what Breivik did.   She makes it clear that she doesn’t, telling us that

Of course, the genocidal leftists will twist what I write here; I am not condoning the slaughter in Norway or anywhere. I abhor violence (except in regard to  self defense). But the jihad-loving media never told us what antisemitic war games they were playing on that island. Utoya Island is a Communist/Socialist campground, and they clearly had a pro-Islamic agenda.  Only the malevolent media could use the euphemism summer camp and get away with it.  The slaughter was horrific. What these kids were being taught and instructed to do was a different kind of grotesque.  There is no justification for Breivik’s actions whatsoever. There is also no justification for Norway’s antisemitism and demonization of Israel.

Do you see now readers?   There is no justification for Breivik’s actions, but Norway is antisemitic and demonises Israel, so maybe in fact there is some justification after all.   And if Geller approves of violence as self-defense, and if the pretend summer campers were really brainwashed communist kids playing antisemitic ‘wargames’, and if Breivik was responding to an act of cultural aggression/betrayal (something he himself argued), then doesn’t that mean that his actions were legitimate?

Far be it from a genocidal leftist like me to jump to the conclusions of the malevolent media.  But then why did Geller’s photograph of the youth gathering at Utoya originally contain the caption “Note the faces which are more MIddle [sic] Eastern or mixed than pure Norwegian” – a caption that has since been removed?

What exactly was her point here?

And  just in case any of you were still so disturbed or distracted by the mass slaughter of teenagers on Utoya that you were in danger of taking your eye off the ball,  Geller reminds us where the real danger lies

Only days after a deranged Anders Breivik claimed creeping Islamization of Norway as an excuse for cold-bloodedly murdering 76 people, the majority of which were children, a group of British Muslim extremists have seemingly mocked the tragedy by hanging bright yellow posters in several  London  boroughs declaring them ‘Sharia-controlled zones’.  One has to wonder about the timing.

Not really.  But one has to wonder why the ridiculous and utterly marginal Muslims Against Crusades grouplet that put up these posters does anything at all, or what its yellow posters were intended to achieve except to reflect and magnify the fantasies of bigots like Geller and the EDL.

But what one really has to wonder about is the hypocrisy, the absence of logic and the underlying savagery of the Queen of the counter-jihadists and her fellow ‘freedom-fighters’, who claim that they wish  to save civilisation, even as they exhibit their own peculiar barbarity.

    It’s worth noting that the smiling kids in the boat are kids from SU, not AUF. SU is a very different organization from us.
