You asked why – here is the answer

Following the revelation that the mass murders in Norway were carried out by a white Nordic man rather than Islamists, hours of radio time and a good amount of TV broadcast time were devoted to trying to make a number of people feel stupid for having initally suggested the attack had been perpetrated by Islamist terrorists.

Plenty of bloggers and media talking heads, whose worldview favours the notion of mass immigration, seized on the news that an Anders and not an Ahmed had carried out the atrocities in Oslo and on Utoya and posed effectively the same question in a range of variations:

Why do we always assume Muslims are behind every terrorist outrage?

The idea for this was to make people feel stupid and guilty for having made an incorrect assumption, to make them feel bigoted and prejudiced for jumping to conclusions.

But the fact of the matter is the reason so many people rushed to the Islamist terrorist conclusion is that in recent years so many attacks and foiled attacks have been carried out by people citing passages from the Qur’an as justification for their attempts to kill people they view as infidels. Whether it is exploding themselves on tube trains and buses, engaging in a concerted copycat effort two weeks later, plotting to blow up shopping centres, trying to kill people outside nightclubs with car bombs, attempting to denotate explosives in shoes or ignite underpants over the Atlantic, drive a car bomb into an airport terminal building or plotting to mix liquid chemicals together in coordinated fashion on a number of jets simultaneously, the common theme of this incredibly disproportionate number of attacks and attackers is Islamism.

This has been re-emphasised today with the updated news that the two German nationals arrested at Dover and charged at City of Westminster Magistrates’ Court with collecting or possessing data likely to be useful in a terrorist act, Christian Emde, 28, and Robert Baum, 23, are fanatical Muslim converts.

So it should come as no surprise that suddenly all those ‘right on’ voices determined to apply the labels of racist, xenophobe and bigot to people less ‘internationalist’ than themselves seem to have gone rather quiet again. And they will remain so until there is another rare non-Islamist assault on civilians.  It is a safe bet that the phone ins on Five Live, LBC and other stations will not be editorially re-focused to ask why so many fanatical Muslims are hell bent on attacking western countries and killing as many people as possible. It doesn’t fit in with their narrative of telling us how wrong we are to rightly point out the Islamist threat dwarfs all others.

There are a number of threats this country faces, foreign and domestic, and it is not racist or bigoted to state the fact that the biggest and most determined of those threats comes from fanatical Muslims who subscribe to the Islamist mindset.  The evidence supports it.

    Couldn’t have said it better if I’d tried a dozen times…unfortunately that won’t wash with the traitrous elite & their fellow-travellers. Just ONE awful ‘statement’ by a non-believer is enough to excuse & expunge the guilt of Left & Muslim radicals’ ongoing terrorism & slaughter
    It has never ceased to amaze me that the carnage of Stalin, Mao & Pol Pot, by far exceeding that of AH, is accepted by the Left as a small price to pay for the ‘freedom’ (Fe) they have graciously bestowed on us.
    Did Stalin not say: “One man’s death is a tragedy; a million is just a statistic.”

    The commonality is that now we as ‘Westerners’ are treated to more scrutiny than before (is it possible?), and that in itself may give some Islamic fanaticists an edge. At risk of being a theorist, such events are quite possibly long term plans for the continuing racial war – WWIII. There are random events, and there are co-ordinated events. If they can’t be bombed out of existence, then let them eat each other. Socially and financially deprived, the fuses are laid. The blogosphere spots them, though with precious little evidence. However, the tell tale traces can often be seen though the media like to sweep such away.

    Spot-on, AM. The reporting of the Islamist assault would call into question the entire left/liberal message that integration means surrendering our identity to the Muslim immigrant demands.

  4. 4 The Pedant-General 28/07/2011 at 9:49 am

    Didn’t an Islamist group initially claim responsibility?

  5. 5 jameshigham 28/07/2011 at 11:31 am

    The evidence does support it and this is something that will give the left the lever they need.

  6. 6 Patrick Harris 28/07/2011 at 12:18 pm

    TP-G, it was reported on TV, radio and in the press that “Friends of Global Jihad” had claimed responsibilty for the attacks. They then castigated those that believed the reports.
    What a shower of incompetents are employed by the MSM, these days, in news rooms.

    Leftism isn’t an evidence-based philosophy. That is why the repeated failures of liberal and socialist ideas (on the rare occasions they are acknowledged at all) are inevitably responded to with calls for more of whatever policy it is that has failed.

    “The biggest and most determined of those threats comes from fanatical Muslims who subscribe to the Islamist mindset. The evidence supports it.”

    Apparently Sharia law will solve all the West’s problems:

    Look at it a different way. Norway has a State Church funded by the Government and run by the Government – The Church of Norway is subject to legislation, including its budgets, passed by the Norwegian parliament, the Storting, and its central administrative functions are carried out by the Royal Ministry of Government Administration, Reform and Church Affairs.

    This means there are no other institutional bases when you have a Labour Party as the ruling elite for decades with its Youth Wing of Cadres meeting on an island OWNED by the Labour Party and GIFTED to it by the Trades Unions.

    A State Church full of liberal values and Pro-Palestinian and Heterodox in its “Christianity” as Neo-Paganism and you feel like an isolated thinker in a sea of GroupThink.

    Muslims see just how marginalised Christianity has been in political and social life and draw in on themselves as Islam is their sole identifying characteristic having come from chaotic polities. To avoid destruction of their identity by the Secular-Liberal-Stridency they circle their wagons.

    In short, I suspect Islamic Stridency is Western Society is part and parcel of the Bunker Mentality – or Laager Mentality – created by a perception of being under Bombardment by Cultural Marxists

    “the biggest and most determined of those threats ” IS OUR GOVERNMENT ITSELF.

    Systematically stamping out freedoms, denying our sovereignty, destroying our wealth and our culture. The activities of a few towelheaded bigots are a sideshow compared to the real deal which is the Whitehall/Berlaymont nexus and their three stooges in Westminster.

    Bano Rashid, 18, and who came to Norway in 1996 with her family fleeing Iraq, was buried at Nesodden church near Oslo in the first funeral.

    How does a “Christian” Church hold a funeral service for a Muslim and bury her in a Christian cemetery ? Did the Imam present fully imbibe the message of Jesus Resurrected in the funeral service ?

    This situation in nOrway becomes ever more Neo-Pagan

  12. 12 Uncle Badger 29/07/2011 at 10:52 pm

    If it were properly ‘neo-pagan’ it might well be a good deal better than it is.

    Contrary to the received wisdom as promulgates by that other bastion of restricted freedom – the Roman Catholic church – the Pagan world was not characterised by the sort of internecine idiocy which goes on within the skirmishing Christian tribes, or even between the monotheistic Middle Eastern faiths.

    I do get tired of hearing ‘pagan’ used as an insult.

  13. 13 TomTom 30/07/2011 at 6:57 am

    I do get tired of hearing ‘pagan’ used as an insult.

    Super. But in my posting it was used as Neo-Pagan to describe exactly what Breivik complained of – jeans-wearing, homosexual, pro-Palestinian marchers supposedly representing the Christian (Protestant) Church Norway. You cannot bury a Muslim in a Christian grave with a Christian Service, so Uncle Badger it can only be Nordic Pagan

  14. 14 Uncle Badger 30/07/2011 at 10:42 am

    What you wrote was: “This situation in nOrway becomes ever more Neo-Pagan”

    There is nothing neo-pagan about the situation in Norway. Only in the mind of someone who does not understand what the word means.,

  15. 15 TomTom 30/07/2011 at 12:11 pm

    There is nothing neo-pagan about the situation in Norway.

    When you have a funeral service for a Muslim predicated upon the Resurrection of Jesus Christ which Islam does not accept, you have a fundamental problem.

  16. 16 Uncle Badger 30/07/2011 at 12:51 pm

    Yes, I completely agree. But neo-paganism has nothing to do with it What is happening in Norway in particular (and Scandinavia in general) is a curiously local home-brew of mutated Lutheran Christianity and socialism.

    Why blame paganism for what is essentially a Christian problem?.

    Poor old Julian the Apostate might well have predicted just such an outcome.

  17. 17 TomTom 30/07/2011 at 5:08 pm

    is essentially a Christian problem?

    Not a Christian Problem at all….and that is Breivik’s point. It is STATISM. That the Norwegian State = Norwegian Labor Party = Noreegian Church.

    The funeral service was organised by the Norwegian Labor Party. The Cadres who were killed were “politicians of the future” especially Bano Rashid. First general asylum-seeker – aspirant politician of Ruling Caste.

    It is so clear that everything is prostituted towards Politics in Norway, but a One-Party State kind of politics. Breivik looks more and more to be a political dissident without hope making a gesture to show resistance to The System.

    Maybe he sees himself as Georg Elser. The fact is the Norwegian State Church is not a Christian Church but a State Church….and for Englishmen that is a very important thing to recall

  18. 18 Uncle Badger 30/07/2011 at 8:29 pm

    Yes – an essentially Christian problem. What do you imagine gave birth to the monster that is Norwegian Labourism? The Lutheran Church and Scandinavian socialism are more or less indivisible – and which came first?
