Pamela Geller and the right wing blogosphere who spew apocalyptic rhetoric about the coming threat of Islam and refuse to denounce the extremists among them now have the very real blood of children on their hands.
NY Times July 24th, 2011. Anders Behring Breivik, the man accused of the killing spree in Norway, was deeply influenced by a small group of American bloggers and writers who have warned for years about the threat from Islam, lacing his 1,500-page manifesto with quotations from them, as well as copying multiple passages from the tract of the Unabomber.
In the document he posted online, Anders Behring Breivik, photo above, who is accused of bombing government buildings (left wing) and killing scores of young people at a Labor Party camp (left wing), showed that he had closely followed the acrimonious American debate over Islam.
His manifesto, which denounced Norwegian politicians as failing to defend the country from Islamic influence, quoted Robert Spencer, who operates the Jihad Watch Web site, 64 times, and cited other Western writers who shared his view that Muslim immigrants pose a grave danger to Western culture.
Mr. Breivik frequently cited another blog, Atlas Shrugs, and recommended the Gates of Vienna among Web sites. Pamela Geller, an outspoken critic of Islam who runs Atlas Shrugs, wrote on her blog Sunday that any assertion that she or other antijihad writers bore any responsibility for Mr. Breivik’s actions was “ridiculous.” “If anyone incited him to violence, it was Islamic supremacists,” she wrote.

“Islam is not a race. This is an ideology. This is an extreme ideology, the most radical and extreme ideology on the face of the earth.”

It is time for the FBI and the US Secret Service to shut down Robert Spencer’s “Jihad Watch” and Pamela Geller’s “Atlas Shrugs” and the rest of the counterjihad crew before someone kills Pres. Barack Obama.
