THE SUN NEWSPAPER UK...Smirking killer Anders Breivik: I would do it all over again. MASSACRE monster Anders Breivik today bragged he would "do it again" as he took the stand in his trial for a murder rampage that left 77 innocents dead in Norway. Breivik, 33, claimed to be speaking as a commander of an anti-Islam militant group called "Knights Templar". He will call Right-wing extremists as witnesses in his trial to show others also share his view of clashing civilisations.
"Knights Templar"...the 1,500-page manifesto written by Anders Behring Breivik which details his preparation of his “martyrdom operation”. The online self-radicalization of Anders Behring Breivik, the terrorist who slaughtered 77 people in Norway, didn’t occur in a vacuum. Like Timothy McVeigh, who was inspired by the writings of a neo-Nazi leader to bomb the Oklahoma City federal building, Breivik was heavily influenced by a cacophony of extremist voices, such as Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller, decrying the supposed takeover of the Western world by Islamic fundamentalists.
Most of Anders Behring Breivik inspiration seems to have been derived from a small but influential group of American “experts” ( Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller) who have waged a populist campaign of vilification – not only against the threat of Islamic terrorism but also against Muslims in general. Their frequently inflammatory rhetoric invokes fear among many on the political right that Islamic fundamentalists are on the verge of trampling the U.S. Constitution and imposing a caliphate guided by Shariah law.
In his manifesto, Breivik quotes figures such as Pamela Geller, who rose to prominence for her vitriolic opposition to the Park51 mosque near the site of the 9/11 attacks in Manhattan, and Andrew Bostom, an American doctor who has written extensively about the intersection of jihad and anti-Semitism.
But among those inspiring Anders Breivik, none seem to have been as influential as Robert Spencer, co-founder with Geller of Stop Islamization of America (SIOA) and the administrator of Jihad Watch, an Internet portal that attacks Muslims under the banner of news and analysis. Breivik references Spencer dozens of times and suggests that he should win the Nobel Peace Prize. “About Islam I recommend essentially everything written by Robert Spencer,” Breivik wrote.
