Sunday's Quote: The not-so-changing face of terrorism

c/o The Telegraph
Rejoice, oh ye fervent disciples of the Left.  Now you can stop disregarding the thousands of post-9/11 terrorist assaults executed globally in the name of Islam – while referring to the otherwise diminutive number of "Christian terrorists" (for the sake of tolerance) who infamously shelled abortion clinics – and re-focus your crosshairs directly upon the first guerrilla strike by a non-Muslim since Timothy McVeigh blasted the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City 16 years ago.

As you have heard by now, a 32-year-old Norwegian named Anders Behring Breivik carried out a dual shooting/bomb attack in Oslo, Norway last Friday, killing 77 people and injuring 96 more.  Aligned with a group known as Nordisk, a 22,000-member forum that emphasizes political terrorism (similar to the Weather Underground), Breivik is said to have been driven by a desperate animosity for "cultural Marxists."  He is also believed to desire a "crusade" against the spread of Islam, according to the Swedish magazine Expo.

Difficult to grasp as it may be for some, Breivik is not the only one fraught with such anxieties; by no means.  I don't like Marxism in any form.  Most people don't.  I am likewise opposed to the spread of Islam, or any other dogma so fierce and/or peculiarly sensitive in scale, as the unquestionable chasm among other social and religious philosophies make Muslims in large numbers enormously incompatible with most societies on the planet.  Anyone who contests such a position simply isn't paying attention.

The difference is that Breivik now epitomizes that poor soul – we all know the type – who neglected to understand the full gravity of his extremist measures even after he opened fire on a Labour Party youth camp two days ago.  Fatefully the actions of this young Norwegian will, in due course, enliven the consortium of cultural amalgamation to which he is so vehemently opposed.

Because of his exploits, Breivik is now a lasting poster child whose memory will be invoked at will by multicultural partisans whenever immigration concerns arise, thus granting Breivik's unwelcome masses an easier transition into his part of the world than he ever dreamed possible.

Perhaps overlooked amid the slew of still-developing news stories are the numerous reports that mention Breivik's blonde hair and blue eyes – an apparent overture to the fact that a non-Arab committed these vicious acts of aggression.  It is certainly notable, of course, considering that none of the terrorists with whom the world has become so familiar over the past decade look nothing like a typical Scandinavian.

Still one can't help but to anticipate that Breivik's particular brand of ethnicity will, at some point, be used by Muslim sympathizers to somehow deflect from the tragic commonality of events all too familiar.  Because in the end, the bloodshed caused by a handful of self-identifying Right Wingers will always pale in comparison to the most historically menacing of all aggressors.


"When you clash with the unbelieving Infidels in battle (fighting Jihad in Allah's Cause), smite their necks until you overpower them, killing and wounding many of them.  At length, when you have thoroughly subdued them, bind them firmly, making (them) captives.  Thereafter either generosity or ransom (them based upon what benefits Islam) until the war lays down its burdens.  Thus are you commanded by Allah to continue carrying out Jihad against the unbelieving infidels until they submit to Islam."
– Qur'an: 47:4
