When Anders Breivik was getting down in the dumps about the Muslim takeover of Eurabia, he could always turn for succor to the pages of Gates of Vienna, where he would find the sort of reassuring anti-Muslim race hatred that soothed his fevered brow. It was the type of vile anti-jihadi rhetoric that served as the intellectual fuel for his terror attack in Norway, which happened several months ago. To be clear, the author of Gates of Vienna is not himself a terrorist as Breivik is. He just helped shape Breivik’s intellectual and political world view. Perhaps not making the blog an accessory to terror, but rather an accessory after the fact.
One of Breivik’s favorite Jews was Caroline Glick, a senior editor at the Jerusalem Post, and doyenne of the extreme settler right. Glick is one of those responsible for the garbage peddled by Latma, which produced the We Con the World video which figuratively danced on the grave of the Mavi Marmara dead. She also produced a video of an Israeli actor (had he been in blackface it would’ve been a perfect touch) mocking Barack Obama while singing songs about how much he, as the U.S. president, hated Jews.
Now, comes news that Caroline Glick is beloved not only of Anders Breivik, but of the blogger, Ned May, who writes Gates of Vienna under the pseudonym, Baron Bodissey. A few days ago May publicly recognized Glick for the helpful tips she’s sent his way. In addition, the blogger explicitly thanks Glick for permitting him to arrange for translation of one of her Jerusalem Post editorials into Norwegian, no doubt so all the families of the terror victims could be blamed yet again for not maintaining a proper bulwark between themselves and the onrushing Muslim hordes.
If Gates of Vienna republished her material without her permission who could blame Glick. But when she explicitly approves of her work appearing in one of the most incendiary, Muslim hating websites in the world, that is unconscionable.
I never found out who wrote the Jerusalem Post editorial just after Breivik’s rampage which blamed, not the racist killer, but Norway’s permissive immigration policy. This supposedly allowed the dirty masses to reach Norway’s shores and so enrage the killer that he was forced to do what any red-blooded Christian European should do. Myhunch is that Glick either wrote this jewel herself or had a large hand in it. Note, the Post’s managing editor was forced to write a half-assed apology when the dreck contained in the editorial single-handedly threatened to unsettle Israel-Norway relations.
The Post fired Larry Derfner for speaking a few unpalatable truths about terrorism, both Israeli and Palestinian, that even Israeli defense ministers have admitted in their more unbuttoned moments, yet the shmateh worships the ground on which Caroline Glick walks. Disgusting. Vile and disgusting.
This blog post is a veritable font of research and information about the most hateful of the Jewish anti-jihadi blogosphere.
FYI Richard… She’s been involved with them for a long time. This recognition you have noticed isn’t the first time. If you look back through their ‘news feeds’ you’ll find that she is a regular contributor.
Excellent post there by Farha Khaled. So Baron Bodisset is Ned May, huh? And Dumbo, I mean Dymphna, is his wife? I can’t really take them that seriously, that whole coterie, Robert Spencer, Sultan knish, Fjordman, Bat Y’eor, Pam Geller etc. And now Glick, I can’t say I’m surprised at all…
It’s that part of the blogosphere where a donning hazmat suit is strongly recommended. Or at least armpit high wellies, goggles and washing pin (on the nose) to wade through the open sewers of the Ultra Far Right, pro-Zionist, Islamophobia…

Indeed, and apt imagery as well.
I condemn hatred against anyone, but anti-muslim feeling isn’t going to go away unless there is a change of attitude in the Muslim world. Until the Arab world explicitly rejects racism, and the muslim world explicitly rejects theologically motivated violence, fear and hostility toward Muslims will only grow.
Richard Silverstein says
You’re full of it. Until the State of Israel explicitly rejects anti-Arab racism & acts to enforce the law when laws are violated, and Orthodox Jews explicitly reject theologically motivated violence, fear & hostility toward Israelis will only grow. Don’t waste our time. You’re a racist through & through. Go back where you came from.
