As a preface, it must be stated that--it's embarrassing that one would even need to point this out--Bawer(as well as other "Islam in Europe" authors such as Bat Ye'or, Christopher Caldwell, and Melanie Phillips) has never advocated or even vaguely implied that violence is the solution to curtailing the rise of Islamism in Europe. On the contrary, these authors are often careful to point out that by far the greatest victims of Islamic theology are MUSLIMS THEMSELVES.
So even though he was cited in Breivik's manifesto(along with, Bawer shrewdly points out, other notorious villains of history such as Thomas Jefferson, George Orwell, and Charles Darwin), where exactly, in the eyes of the Left, does Bawer's culpability lie?Read more ›
A very interesting book that among other things is offering an alternative view on what is going on in Norwegian society
It is not easy at all to get you views through in the Norwegian media, a strive for a narrow-minded conformity blocks all alternative opinions
It is refreshing to read his book in that context
Sometimes a bit over the top, other times too obviously defensive, but great fun
Accordingly, his Quislings indictment of those too ready to allege Islamophobia, racism or breaches of the multicultural dogma against him, Melanie Philips and others is amply justified and timely.
Bawer and others have been tainted simply because Breivik's 2083 manifesto mentions their books. But to suggest inter alia that Bawer was in any way causally linked to the murderous carnage committed by Breivik makes as much sense as blaming the cod for the British/Icelandic Cod War.
As the Norwegian police have confirmed: Breivik acted alone. Of course Breivik, a fantasising narcissist, sought to self-justify by attempting to provide an intellectual/philosophical/political imprimatur for his planned murderous spree. To that end he cited books written by numerous individuals, including Bruce Bawer, who have warned against the encroachments in several European countries of extreme Islamists for whom intolerance and fanaticism, together with their rejection of the precepts and principles of liberal democracy, is part of their global ambitions and supremacist ideology.
There are few people as well placed as Bruce Bawer, given his several years of residence in Norway, to analyse the behaviour its ruling political elite and the cynical and opportunistic way that it seized upon a national tragedy to dish political opponents. However, criticism of Bruce Bawer was not just confined to Norway; several US writers and columnists joined the bandwagon.
This is Bruce Bawer's response to his detractors. It is well researched, reasoned, persuasive and deserves to be read widely.Read more ›
