“The left’s wet dream has materialized.”
Thus a close friend described the terrorist atrocity in Norway.
Indeed, a blond hair, blue-eyed terrorist bombed government buildings and then gunned down scores of children at a youth camp run by Norway’s ruling political party.
“Now,” said my friend, “the left will crow about Christian terrorism, proof positive that Islam is not the problem.”
My response is rooted in common sense, the ability to detect and identify patterns in behaviour. Human and historical trends tend to follow tight scenarios that rarely deviate from their pre-determined plot points.
For instance, in the past year there have been over 10,000 Islamist acts of terrorism across the globe. Each act uses Islam, Koran, hatred of Jews and the West as religious justification.
All across the Muslim world homosexuals have been tortured and murdered in untold numbers because of their sexual orientation.
Genital mutilation of women in the Muslim world is an everyday occurence, as are honor killings, forced marriages, and the stoning of women who have been raped.
When an Islamist terrorist attack takes place, Islamist gangs rush to claim responsibility. Further, there is a ghoulish eruption of celebration and justification in the Muslim world.
Not a single responsible group in the West is celebrating the Norwegian massacre.
There is a clear pattern of jihadist murder and terror in the Islamic world with a majority of otherwise peaceful Muslims silent in the face of endless and unspeakable atrocities.
No such pattern of barbarity manifets itself in the Judeo Christian world.
Ninety-three Norwegians have been murdered by Anders Behring Breivik, a lone gunman whose manifesto runs 1,500 pages, a huge chunk plagiarized from the ravings of the Unibomber, Harvard graduate Ted Kaczynski.
Breivik also justifies the slaughter of innocents by drawing from church teachings—which, as far as I know, were abandoned by the church centuries ago.
But Breivik also references Shakespeare, Immanuel Kant, John Locke and John Stuart Mill. And since Breivik identifies himself as a Darwinian and not a Christian, his use of ancient Christian doctrine is nothing less than murderous cynicism.
Of course there are two references to Israel in the manifesto so, naturally, the slaughter is the fault of the Jewish State and the evil Jews. This lunatic notion will spread across the Arab Muslim world with the speed of a prairie fire.
Of course, when I first heard about the Norwegian atrocity I, along with every sane person in the world, assumed it was another case of Islamist terrorism.
That the terrorist labels himself a warrior against Marxist culture is an aberration.
There is no world-wide pattern of this form of terrorism.
The blame game across the blogosphere and the dinosaur media is drawing parallels to Timothy McVeigh, but once again, McVeigh was not Christian. In fact, he was a self-proclaimed pagan.
Even if McVeigh or Breivik were Christain, would this point toward a murderous religious or philosophical fault line in the Christian world?
I think not.
Anders Behring Breivik is an evil man—Seraphic Secret recognizes good and evil—who, according to Norwegian law, can look forward to a spectacular show trial, and then the enviable comforts of a Norwegian prison for the maximum sentence of, I believe, 21 years, which works out to about 82 days per life.
There is no death penalty possible for this human monster, because Norway is, um, civilized.
So Breivik will be released when he’s about 52 years old.
This is nothing less than the triumph of evil and the enabling of evil by a naive state whose fate, I believe, is to be consumed in the next fifty years, by Caliphate Muslims—not, mind you, by some mythical right wing Christian conspiracy dreamed up for the convenience of the politically correct left.
Does no one in Norway carry a firearm? On the whole island where the majority of the slaughter took place was there not one security guard who was packing? Or is Norway one of those progressive cultures where only police and bad guys carry weapons.
