Bored rich moron Pamela Geller is a big deal in the internet anti-Islam scene, thanks to her unreadable blog Atlas Shrugs. Norwegian terrorist Anders Behring Breivik is reputedly such a big fan that he gave her a few shout-outs in his manifesto! Which is why we're interested in an email she got in 2007 from an anonymous Norwegian who was "stockpiling weapons."
Geller published the full email, which she described as "devastating in its matter-of-factness," in June of 2007. "[T]he situation is worsening," the author writes:
From Israel the hordes clawing at the walls of Jerusalem proclaim cheerfully that next year there will be no more Israel, and I know Israel shrugs this off as do I, and will mount a strike during the summer against all of its enemies in the middle east. This will make the muslims worldwide go into a frenzy, attacking everyone around them.
We are stockpiling and caching weapons, ammunition and equipment. This is going to happen fast.
Before, I thought about emigrating to Britain, Israel, USA, South Africa, etc. for taxes and politics, but instead (although I believe we are the very last generation on earth before the return of God) I will stay and fight for the right to this country and indeed the entire peninsula, for the God-fearing people, just in case this isn't the end of the world after all. Doesn't hurt to have a backup plan.
Now, that's a very interesting email, especially in light of Geller's vehement rejection of the idea that she or her violent, apocalyptic rhetoric contributed in any way to Breivik's crime. And yet, sometime after the July 22 shooting, she removed the line about "stockpiling and caching weapons, ammunition and equipment." (You can still see the original post using the Wayback Machine or in Google's cache; the excised version is here.)
Characteristically, Geller didn't acknowledge the edit until she was called out by Little Green Football's Charles Johnson and others. Today, in a post entitled "Clarifying the Edit," she says that the letter is not from Breivik (we'll take her word for it), and writes that she edited it out of sensitivity concerns "in the light of recent horrific events in Norway."
Uh-huh. "Sensitivity concerns" is a much more believable excuse than embarrassment over her admiring publication of an email from a Norwegian with the same violent, xenophobic worldview as Breivik. In fact, we're sure she's been in contact with Norwegian authorities regarding her correspondence with a weapons-stockpiling far-right Norwegian "anti-Jihadist"! Probably it's a false-flag email from a Muslim anyway! As Pamela says, "If anyone incited [Breivik] to violence, it was Islamic supremacists."
