Anti-Zionists Try to Blame Mossad for Norway Terror

It did not take long for anti-Zionists to try to pin the massacre in Norway on Israel. The theory began with a way-out blog but now has reached Al Jazeera.

Right-wing extremist Anders Behring Breivik went on a rampage Friday night and killed more than 90 people, most of them children, at a summer camp sponsored by Norway’s ruling Labor party. Breivik, a neo-Nazi who is against the foreign Muslim invasion of Norway, has made statements in favor of Israel concerning Palestinian Authority demands.

He planned his bombing and follow-up massacre alone, but anti-Israeli elements tried to find a contorted line that could link the slaughter with the Mossad.

The initial anti-Israeli reaction began with a self-styled investigative journalist’s blog in the United States but gained more prominence on the Al Jazeera website in a column written by a former Israeli.

The American blog of Wayne Madsen, who says he is a former U.S. military analyst, wrote that Breivik has been a “supporter of such vile Zionist Islamophobes as Pam Geller and Richard Pipes. Pipes and Geller are ciphers for Israeli intelligence and propaganda elements and provide a clear link between Breivik and Mossad, which is under orders to stage false flag attacks to garner support for Israel against Palestine, Cyprus and Norway being the two most recent examples of Mossad-staged attacks.”

Madsen, who previously has written that President Barack Obama wants him dead, also claimed that the “Obama administration covers up for Israel by calling attack ‘domestic.’ With ample evidence of Mossad involvement in Oslo, it is up to every one of us to report to the Nth degree any suspicious contacts with Israelis or Israeli sympathizers.”

Al Jazeera gave more credence to the Mossad theory by publishing an article by Gilad Atzmon, an Israeli-born British jazz saxophonist and political activist known for his criticisms of Zionism, Jewish identity, and Judaism.

Atzmon harped on the Norwegian Labor party’s support for boycotting Israel and noted, “The Labor Party Youth Movement have been devoted promoters of the Israel Boycott campaign. Many of the children who were gunned down by Breivik earlier had held up anti-Israel signs."

Atzmon tried connecting dots between the murders and the fact that Breivik “was a regular poster on several Norwegian internet sites, notably the blog document.no, which is run by Hans Rustad… [who is] Jewish, extremely pro-Zionist, and warns against ‘Islam-isation’, violence, and other social problems he assumes to be connected with Muslim immigration.”

Another site that pointed to the Mossad, and which Atzmon quoted, was the American Veterans Today, which is fervently anti-Israel. The website carried a post that said the “car bombing carries the signature of an intelligence agency. Nobody else bothers with such things.”

Atzmon cautioned, “I am not in a position at present to firmly point a finger at Israel... but assembling the information together, and considering all possibilities may suggest that Anders Behring Breivik might indeed, have been a Sabbath Goy."

“Within its Judaic mundane-societal context, the Sabbath Goy is simply there to accomplish some minor tasks the Jews cannot undertake during the Sabbath. But within the Zion-ised reality we tragically enough live in, the Sabbath Goy kills for the Jewish state. He may even do it voluntarily.”

He continued his own logic linking the Mossad with the murders by relying on talkbacks in a Hebrew article, where some readers allegedly praised Breivik and one stated, “It's stupidity and evil not to desire death for those who call to boycott Israel."

Atzmon’s concluded, “The full facts of the Norwegian tragedy are, as yet, unknown, but the message should by now be transparently and urgently clear to all of us: Western intelligence agencies must immediately crackdown [sic] on Israeli and Zionist operators in our midst, and regarding the terrible events of the weekend, it must be made absolutely clear who it was that spread such hate and promoted such terror, and for what exact reasons.”
