Good Debunking of Various Nonsense Regarding the Norway Terrorist Incident

If you've been reading the coverage and commentary regarding the terrorist attack in Norway, there is a must-read article at the Sultan Knish blog by Daniel Greenfield called, "Debunking 6 Myths About Anders Breivik." The myths in question, all about the killer, Anders Behring Breivik, are:

1. He was a fundamentalist Christian
2. He hated Muslims
3. He was inspired by counterjihad bloggers
4. He was pro-Israel
5. He was a moderate.
6. He was a political terrorist

I think point number two is splitting hairs, but the rest of the post serves as a useful counter to much of the nonsense that is being written about this incident.


  1. That post is a lot of nonsensical denial. I've been reading the things he wrote himself and I have to say, whoever wrote this didn't.

  2. It seems pretty clear that he did. That's why he's pointing out the incorrect assumptions which have been made.
