Islamaphobic blogger Pamela Geller has been one of the most strident voices against the so-called "Ground Zero mosque," and even organized an anti-Islamic bus ad purchased with donations from readers of her blog, Atlas Shrugs. Given her prominence in the bigoted 'Muslim Go Home!' movement, it's no surprise that mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik cited her in his sick manifesto. And over the weekend, it emerged that in 2007, Geller also published an anonymous email from a Norwegian praising her work. The email is chilling in its similarity to Breivik's stated mission:
Orders from Libya and Iran say that Oslo will be known as Medina at the latest in 2010, although I consider this a PR-stunt nevertheless it is their plan.
From Israel the hordes clawing at the walls of Jerusalem proclaim cheerfully that next year there will be no more Israel, and I know Israel shrugs this off as do I, and will mount a strike during the summer against all of its enemies in the middle east. This will make the muslims worldwide go into a frenzy, attacking everyone around them.
We are stockpiling and caching weapons, ammunition and equipment. This is going to happen fast.
When the old blog post came to light in the media, Geller responded by scrubbing out the sentence about stockpiling weapons. After she was called out on it, she put it back in, explaining that "The sentence I edited is not an incitement to anything. It refers to self-defense, but I removed it in the light of recent horrific events in Norway. I thought it insensitive. Nothing more. Everyone has a right to self-defense."
Geller denies that the email was from Breivik, but in a new blog post, she also insinuates that his slaughter could be seen as self-defense. She begins by predicting that the "genocidal leftists will twist what I write here," so let's let her words stand on their own. No twisting required with an essay nauseatingly titled "Summer Camp? Antisemitic Indoctrination Training Center":
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... The camp was run by the Youth Movement of the Labour Party and used to indoctrinate teens and young adults.
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.
Despite her rote platitudes about abhorring violence, Geller clearly states that this "indoctrination center" was committing violence "against Norwegian natives." Framed in that context, Breivik was acting in self-defense when he preemptively fought back against these "junior members of the aristocracy" before they could begin their "careers ruling over the peasants." The subtext is barely sub: Breivik was a patriotic hero defending his nation. (And so handsome after that Aryan plastic surgery!)
Her post features a photo of the campers taken less than 24 hours before the slaughter, so it's likely that some of the children in the photo are among Breivik's victims. In the original version, Geller's photo caption read, "Note the faces which are more Middle Eastern and mixed than pure Norwegian." Little Green Footballs notes that Geller, perhaps realizing that she'd sunk to a new low, has deleted the caption.
