Anders Behring Breivik: Enoch Powell, The Hitler Youth and the Knights Templar
ANDERS Behring Breivik murdered 77 people. He murdered eight people in Oslo’s government district with a bomb. He murderd 69 at a Labor Party youth camp on Utøya island. Anders Behring Breivik says he was acting in self-defence. He says he was inspired by Al Qaeda’s methods in venerating and creating martyrs. He says:
“If you look at July 22, all were shocked, even militant nationalists. But I think the threshold for aggravated acts of violence by militant nationalists has been lowered. We have attempted to introduce new traditions for militant nationalists in Europe and we have taken a bit from al Qaeda and Islamists including the use of martyrdom. Al Qaeda is the most successful militant group in the world and I believe militant nationalists in Europe have a great deal to learn from them. The resistance movement since World War Two has been pathetic and we have to introduce these new traditions.”
Did he work alone?
“I am linked to two others who are independent cells, so there are three cells.”
He claims to be a member of the Knights Templar, a group formed in London in 2002.
“July 22 was not about me at all. July 22 was a so-called suicide attack and I did not expect to survive. They say I am a narcissist but a narcissist would never sacrifice his life for anything or anyone.”
“There are claims that I carried out the attacks because I was a pathetic and mean loser without dignity or trust. They say I am insane and because of this I should be ignored and forgotten. They try to claim that I fell out of work, I have a longing for my father, I lack a network, I am a mean person who only wants attention. They also claim I am narcissistic, that I have an incestuous relationship to my mother, that I like red sweaters, that I am a paedophile. This is only lies and propaganda and the answer is clear – I have carried out the most sophisticated, spectacular political attack committed in Europe since the Second World War…They call me evil but calling someone evil presumes that you know about someone and their motives. How can you call me evil and not the United States commanders in World War Two when they decided to drop the bomb? They did that to save millions of lives by killing 300,000 people. So it was goodness, they tried to have noble motives to save people’s lives by taking that decision. I and other militants use exactly the same line of logic. If I and others can convince the Norwegian Labour Party to change direction by killing 70 people…that will help to prevent civil war in Norway and prevent other people from dying. I and other conservatives in Europe are convinced that if we can prevent the multicultural experiment we can save many lives because we will avert a civil war….the acts are based on goodness and not evil. And, yes, I would do it again the offences against my people are in many ways just as bad.”
Breivik compared Labour Party activists to the Hitler Youth, revisited Enoch Powell’s words that “rivers of blood” would flow in Europe:
“…Enoch Powell was right. He said rivers of blood would flow through our streets. Unfortunately nobody listened to him or any of the Enoch Powells in Europe. Everyone has been censored and ignored and what do we see? Rivers of blood have flowed through Belgium, Toulouse, Madrid and rivers have flowed from those who tried to save their culture through Oslo and Malmo.”
Breivik says he had a “Muslim best friend” as a youth and “made a clear turn to the right” after getting involved in hip-hop culture.
