Since Nidal Malik Hasan murdered 14 people at Ft. Hood in 2009, the Washington Post has published fewer than 40 articles which have mentioned the “allahu akbar” shouting, terrorist killer. And most of these have expressed sympathy for the poor Major’s pressure filled existence while exhibiting a profound reluctance to attribute blame for the massacre.
Just two of those articles offered anything resembling a direct reference to Hassan’s Muslim faith, both written nearly a year after the crime.
In the fortnight since 77 people were murdered in Norway, the Post has carried 104 articles condemning Anders Breivik. And in 44 of those publications, Breivik is variously described as a Christian fundamentalist, Christian terrorist or Christian political extremist.
It is not unusual that a far left newspaper like the Washington Post would exhibit this level of bias in its reporting.
Nor should readers be surprised with details the Post and virtually every other member of the American media have left out of the story.
Most of us envision the “summer camp” whose young residents were gunned down by Breivik as a pleasant spot for boating, swimming, hiking and harmless fun. We envision the same sort of camp to which many Americans send their children each year.
But this was the Labour Youth League summer camp at Utoya. “It was a summer indoctrination camp run by Norway’s ruling Labour Party for up-and-coming children of the ruling elite.” It’s principle purpose was to make certain that ”…the junior members of the aristocracy can be properly told what to think…in preparation for their brilliant careers ruling over the peasants.”
And the first order of business at camp were games in which “…Palestinian aide boats would try to break the Israel block[ade].” As Norway’s Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Store said in a speech to “campers”, the Palestinians “…must have their own state, the occupation must end, the wall must be demolished and it must happen now…”
Alan Dershowitz describes Norway as “…the most anti-Semitic and anti-Israel country in Europe today”, writing that the Utoya camp “…was engaged in an orgy of anti-Israel hatred the day before the shooting.”
Just last week, Norway’s ambassador to Israel made it quite clear that “…Hamas terrorism against Israel is more justified than [Breivik's] terrorist attack against Norway.”
“We Norwegians consider the occupation to be the cause of terror against Israel,” he stated. Breivik’s attack, however, was simply based on the notion that “…Norway, particularly the Labour Party, is foregoing Norwegian culture.”
Indeed, “Breivik was targeting the future leaders of the [Labour] Party…responsible for flooding Norway with Muslioms [sic] who refuse to assimilate, who commit major violence against Norwegian natives, including gang rapes, with impunity, and who live on the dole…all without the consent of the Norwegians”
Terrorist acts result from many causes. Muslims consider them the just demands of Muhammad’s 1400 year old invention of Allah. Anders Breivik believed he was acting for the good of his country…a nation betrayed by a leftist ruling party.
It is revealing that the global left will justify heinous acts committed in the name of a cause with which it agrees, while condemning actions no more or less grotesque if the cause is considered “unjust”. The Post shows this in its reporting, liberal politicians in their words and votes.
Anyone can define terrorism, but only the left is allowed to define “just.”
