These are the collected writings of Anders Behring Breivik, accused of killing more than 84 young people at a Labour Party gathering in Norway and at least seven in a car bombing in Oslo. These are comments he posted on the right-wing site document.no Thanks to my Norwegian friends for translating this.
This is the 1500-page manifesto published hours before the terrorist acts by Breivik. Its title is 2083: A European Declaration of Independence and it is being discussed on Twitter under the #N2083 hashtag. It is written under an Anglicization of Breivik’s name, and the day-by-day diary of bomb-building and shooting-plotting toward the end makes it almost certain that it is his work (the document is a very precise description of his crime).
The manifesto draws on “Eurabia” and “Muslim Tide” writers such as Bruce Bawer, Melanie Phillips, Mark Steyn, Geert Wilders, and Robert Spencer, as well as many figures from the extreme right, to create an argument that Muslims, immigrants, multiculturalists, European Union backers and social democrats are part of a plot to undermine Europe’s Christian civilization. It then draws on the extreme right, the ideas of al Qaeda and other terrorist groups (which he admires) to describe and rationalize a plot which almost exactly matches his activities on July 22, 2011.
The title is rooted in a demogrpahic claim - - that Muslims will become a majority in Europe - - that I debunk here.
