Anders Breivik & ‘The Clash of Civilisations’
Anders Breivik wanted notoriety. He is reported to have stated that he would become the most notorious killer since World War II. Although such an ambition is hardly practicable for one individual, no matter how avid at killing, for someone who preached on the conservative Right taking the ‘high moral ground’, his actions have resulted in the further demonisation and alienation of Rightist ideas. The news media has had a field day in headlining Breivik’s actions as those of someone from the ‘far Right’, and as actions that are a consequence of Rightist ideology. Yet Breivik’ was an avid Zionist, whose motives were predicated on Islamophobia. His ideological influences are libertarians and ‘neo-conservatives’. He was playing his part, albeit as a loose cannon, in the ‘clash of civilisations’.
Although the news media has focused on
his previous membership in the Progressive Party, his only current
organisational affiliation seems to have been with Freemasonry and with his own
minuscule – and possibly non-existent - ‘Knights Templar’. His ideological
commitment is to Zionism. Why then did not the news media headline Breivik’s
atrocity as being that of a ‘Zionist’, a ‘stanch supporter of
The Atlantic Wire headlining their article
summarising the background of Breivik from several news sources reads:
‘Profile: The Christian Extremist Suspect in
It is not required that you have a personal relationship with God or Jesus in order to fight for our Christian cultural heritage and the European way. In many ways, our modern societies and European secularism is a result of European Christendom and the enlightenment. It is therefore essential to understand the difference between a ‘Christian fundamentalist theocracy’ (everything we do not want) and a secular European society based on our Christian cultural heritage (what we do want).
Despite the catch-cries about Christianity, Breivik adhered to European secularism and the enlightenment. Such views are more apt for a Freemason than for an advocate of a revived Western Christendom. While he advocated banning the Islamic religion form Europe, he seems to have been totally oblivious to the intrinsically anti-Christian nature of Orthodox Judaism, and while he wrote at length on the supposed enmity between ‘Judaeo-Christianity’ and Islam, he wrote nothing of the anti-Christian record of Israel, including the demolition of Christian holy sites, and the common practice of spitting on Christian clergy in the Holy Land. Although he did recognise historical predominance of Jews in Leftist movements, this was an acknowledgement of the rivalry within Jewry between liberals and leftists on the one side and ‘neo-conservatives’ and ‘right-wingers’ on the other, the latter being considered his best potential allies in the fight against Islam. Breivik is Judaeophilic to the extent that he is Islamophobic, writing in his manifesto:
Regardless of what the Jewish communities motives are I think it’s
imperative that they take a stance on multiculturalism and Muslim immigration
as soon as humanly possible. They have to recognise that ‘multiculturalism’ is
the system that allows
Breivik’s opposition to Jewish leftists, as with his opposition to liberals and leftists of any type, is no more antagonistic towards Jews per se than the opposition of Jewish neo-cons towards Jews leftists. The above passage from Breivik is in total accord with the pro-Zionist neo-con party-line, as will be seen.
The New York Times defined Breivik as a ‘right-wing fundamentalist Christian’. The Daily Mail cogently carried the headline: ‘Norwegian massacre gunman was a right-wing extremist who hated Muslims’. Even alternative media such as Global Research have maintained the fiction, carrying an article calling him a ‘Christian fundamentalist’ associated with the ‘extreme Right’. 
What is notable is that while there are
there passing references to Freemasonry in these articles, there is not a
single mention of one of the primary aspects of Breivik’s ideology, pro-Zionism
and support for
The great Satan, his cult and the Jews. Whenever someone asks if
I am a national socialist I am deeply offended. If there is one historical figure
and past Germanic leader I hate it is Adolf Hitler. If I could travel in a
Whether Breivik’s assessment of Hitler’s legacy is legitimate is not the point. Rather, it is a matter that has not been mentioned by the media accounts, any more than his Zionophilia.
Breivik is not a ‘conservative’ or a
traditionalist. He repudiates the traditionalism of Rene Guenon for example,
because traditionalists recognise the validity of all remnants of tradition as
valuable in a world in decay thanks to the spread of what the neo-cons laud as
‘Western values’. Guenon, as Breivik points out, was a Sufi. European
traditionalists and revolutionary conservatives will seek out alliances with
other traditionalists in confronting what traditionalist Julius Evola called
the ‘revolt against the modern world’. Certain
Muslims are more in accord with the aims of Western traditionalists than those
neo-cons, plutocrats and Zionists who laud their ‘war against terrorism’ as
upholding ‘Western values’. What exactly are these ‘Western values’ that the
‘war on terrorism’, which the
We are entering a new American century, in which we will become still wealthier, culturally more lethal, and increasingly powerful. We will excite hatreds without precedent.
There will be no peace. At
any given moment for the rest of our lifetimes, there will be multiple
conflicts in mutating forms around the globe. Violent conflict will dominate
the headlines, but cultural and economic struggles will be steadier and
ultimately more decisive. The de facto role of the
Yes, foreign cultures are reasserting their threatened identities - usually with marginal, if any, success--and yes, they are attempting to escape our influence. But American culture is infectious, a plague of pleasure, and you don’t have to die of it to be hindered or crippled in your integrity or competitiveness. The very struggle of other cultures to resist American cultural intrusion fatefully diverts their energies from the pursuit of the future. We should not fear the advent of fundamentalist or rejectionist regimes. They are simply guaranteeing their peoples’ failure, while further increasing our relative strength.
Does the ‘revolutionary conservative’ (a term that Breivik applied to himself) have more in common with the Islamic ‘rejectionist’ regimes, or with the American cultural ‘infection’? That is the question.
Additionally, the opposition to usury and the international debt finance system is a crucial issue that is better understood among Muslims than among Westerners, including nationalists and conservatives, and is also something that traditional Islam has in agreement with the traditional Catholic opposition to usury. Despite the detailed nature of Breivik’s manifesto, he mentions nothing about the central role of international finance, while his attitudes on economics are classical liberal rather than ‘revolutionary conservative’. Those he mentions as ideological influences include: Thomas Hobbes, John Stuart Mill, John Locke, Adam Smith, Ayn Rand,  and Hayek. He refers occasionally to Nietzsche, whose attitudes towards Islam would surely not meet with Breivik’s approval.
Israel & Islam
Breivik identifies with the Zionist
extreme Right. This calls to mind the likes of the Jewish Defense League,
Likud, the settler movement, etc. Breivik’s support for the expansion of
Israeli borders north and south also reminds one of the ‘Greater Israeli
empire’ that has always been a basis of the Zionist ‘extreme right’. He sees
While most people refer to
His justification for the ‘security wall’ is the same party line as that of other pro-Zionists, including the neo-con ideologues. The main difference is that Breivik is happy to call this situation ‘apartheid’, while the neo-cons recoil at the word. Was Breivik inspired in his shooting rampage of Norwegian youths more by the example of the Israeli security forces than by the crusader knights?
Clash of Civilisations
Breivik is a product of the ‘clash of
civilisations’, formulated by neo-con ideologues and used by American and
Zionist interests to philosophically justify the so-called ‘war on terrorism’.
He is the product of a legacy that is anything but ‘conservative’ in the
Western historical sense: an aspiring underground resistance fighter against
the Islamic occupation of
Several recent incidents have demonstrated that
Muslims are now trying to apply these dhimmi rules to the entire Western world.
The most important one was the burning of churches and embassies triggered by
the Danish cartoons depicting Muhammad. This was, down to the last comma,
exactly the way Muslims would treat the persecuted non-Muslims in their own
countries. The cartoon Jihad indicated that Muslims now felt strong enough to
apply sharia rules to
Again it was symptomatic of the ‘clash
of civilisations’. The cartoons published in
The anti-Muslim cartoon scandal has turned out to be a major step forward for the Zionist Neo-cons and their long-planned ‘clash of civilisations’, the artificially constructed conflict designed to put the so-called Christian West against the Islamic world.
Bollyn wrote that Flemming Rose, the
‘cultural editor’ who commissioned the cartoons for his newspaper Jyllands‑Posten, visited the
Will the West stand up for its customs and mores, including freedom of speech, or will Muslims impose their way of life on the West? Ultimately, there is no compromise. Westerners will either retain their civilization, including the right to insult and blaspheme, or not’.
This is the Breivik line that he
learned at the metaphorical knees of his neo-con and Zionist gurus. Pipes at
the time cited in support another Breivik ideological hero, Robert Spencer of Jihad
Watch, which is part of the network of neo-con luminary David Horowitz.
Pipes wrote: ‘Robert Spencer rightly called on the free world to stand
Now Pipes states of Breivik that ‘authors and artists’ such as himself cannot be held responsible for the actions of those they inspire and, like Robert Spencer and other neo-cons, he reiterates what seems to be their party-line on the matter by giving the example, among others, of how The Beatles’ ‘Helter Skelter’ influenced Charles Manson. However, the connection is just not that cryptic: the neo-con coteries, including Daniel Pipes, have been promoting the ‘clash of civilisations’ and when a foot solider goes rogue and gets out of control they protest: ‘don’t blame me’. Pipes is more than a street corner agitator. He is a visiting fellow of the Hoover Institution of Stanford University, with columns appearing in newspapers around the world. He has lectured at the US Naval War College, Harvard and others and appears on leading TV networks. His Middle East Forum has a budget of $4,000,000. In a 2010 interview with the Washington Post Pipes stated that he is no longer regularly criticised as Islamophobic because of the proliferation of more extreme Islamophobes. This means that Pipes’ and others such as Spencer and Horowitz now look ‘moderate’ because of the shifting of the centre of Islamicophobic gravity by years of agitation. The interview also mentions a particularly interesting phenomenon; the support Pipes had given to the Dutch ‘right-wing’ politician Geert Wilders who, like Breivik, wants to ban the Koran in The Netherlands. While regarding the ‘new crop of bloggers’ as ‘unsophisticated, Pipes is quoted as saying:
Pipes says he shares ‘the same enemies’ with people like Wilders and the new crop of bloggers. ‘We’re in the same trench but we have different views of what the problem is. We both see an attempt to impose Islamic law, sharia, in the West. We are both against it, and want to maintain Western civilization. But we understand the nature of the problem differently’. Important distinction, in your eyes?
It is just this type of alliance between the neo-cons, Zionists and the European so-called ‘right-wing’ that Breivik regards as a basis for the anti-Islamic civil war he hoped to foment in Europe. It is not an isolated phenomenon. The well-publicised English Defence League’s anti-Muslim demonstrations and riots are marked by the number of Israeli flags appearing amidst their shaven headed ranks. Breivik regards the EDL as one of the better organisations, writing:
The British EDL seems to be the first youth organisation that has finally understood this. Sure, in the beginning it was the occasional egg heads who shouted racist slogans and did Nazi salutes but these individuals were kicked out. An organisation such as the EDL has the moral high ground and can easily justify their political standpoints as they publicly oppose racism and authoritarianism.
According to the anti-Zionist former Israeli Gilad Atzmon, the EDL has formed a ‘Jewish Division’, which the London Jewish Chronicle states immediately drew ‘hundreds’ of followers. The Division is led by Roberta Moore, who was interviewed by the Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz, and boasted of how the ‘Jews were exploiting’ the EDL:
Roberta Moore, aged 39, the leader of the Jewish Division, admitted this week to Ha'aretz that it is ‘actually the Jewish Division that exploits the EDL’. In an interview with the Israeli newspaper on 13 July 2010, she said: ‘They [the EDL] think the league is exploiting us, while it is really we who initiated the Jewish Division. If anything, we are exploiting them’.

A Hebrew website, Rotter, states that two days before the massacre the leader of the Norwegian Labour Party Youth, Eskil Pederson, said in an interview that it was time to end dialogue with Israel and undertake tough measures, including an economic boycott by Norway. The youth at the Labour camp aimed to lobby their party for a boycott. The site describes the Labour youth camp:
