Oslo Terrorism Updates: Killer Funded ‘Counter-Jihad’ Movement

Data in the evening argues that Fjordman during the day writing an article and thus can not be identical with Anders Behring Breivik. Our information is based on Breivik for about a year ago myself claimed to be the blogger Fjordman. Of course, the task to be inaccurate, if not so many writers hid behind the name. The fact that several people tonight gave himself for being Fjordman suggests that it could be the case. If Fjordman feel unduly singled out, he is welcome with a clarification. Breivik, among other things on his Facebook page earlier expressed the same opinions as Fjordman has spread in their texts so we did not see reason to distrust his own statement that he was the man behind the pseudonym.
For more information on Breivik’s influences (which include Robert Spencer, Pamela Geller, and the Gates of Vienna blog), LGF reader Sergey Romanov put together an excellent LGF Page with translations of comments posted by Breivik at a Norwegian website: Mind of a Counter-Jihadi: Visualizing Anders Breivik’s ideology.
It appears that Breivik was contributing a great deal of money to the far right “counter-jihad” movement (or at least, he boasted that he was):
I ran the business a few years while I studied and earned a few million so I could finance a inntektsløs politically active life. I now use these funds to be able to work full time to further develop / promote the Vienna Academy (Vienna school of thought) that Fjordman, Bat Yeor, Spencer + many others have already contributed so much till.
