Gates of Vienna News Feed 4/2/2012

Gates of Vienna News Feed 4/2/2012Well, it’s official now: Fjordman will be among the “anti-Muslim extremists” called by Geir Lippestad, the defense lawyer for Anders Behring Breivik, to testify at his client’s trial in Oslo later this month. A number of non-Scandinavian media outlets, including The Washington Post, reported this fact today.

Mr. Lippestad has also called on Mullah Krekar to testify, which is a clever stratagem, promoting as it does the “Fjordman, Mullah Krekar — same thing” meme.

In other news, a former nursing student returned to a classroom at Oikos University in Oakland and shot seven people to death, wounding several others. The gunman was apprehended by police not far away a short time after the shootings.

"promoting as it does the “Fjordman, Mullah Krekar — same thing” meme."

No. That's not what the defense team wants. Fjordman and Krekar are being summoned to justify Breivik's idea of a civilizational struggle. Breivik wants to avoid being labeled as mad. He wants to portray his actions as justified. He wants (in his madness) to be acquitted.
He (or his lawyers) needs Fjordman and Krekar to confirm that 'yes, there is a battle between civilizations'. So what he did was right, so he can walk free. (Breivik's mad, you rembember?)

OR, Breivik wants to give both men an international platform on which to parse the true intent of Islam.

The problem is that Fjordman will NOT be free to speak the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth - about the malicious intent of Islam BECAUSE Europe already operates under de facto Sharia Law where no one is allowed to 'disrespect' Islam without severe consequence - whether that consequence is being murdered by savages who now know your name and face or being prosecuted by the state for 'hating' savages who would murder you and the state that 'protects' savages from very warranted and overdue criticism.
