In the article, I stated, ” I’ll bet a million dollars that this bombing will be proudly hailed by a group of Arab Muslims. “ The following video is proof enough for me that Anders Behring Breivik was the gunman responsible for the camp shooting and the Oslo bombings. I still stand by my assertions that the government did not release sourced information for the accusations they made. They still haven’t. This would not be tolerated in the American press. But I have to assume a socialist government does that kind of thing. This is a video- completely genuine- of a man who saw the shooter and narrowly escaped with his life on the island. It has been released, ironically, by Al Jezeera. I also stand by my assertion that this will be used against conservative Christians- we will be labeled as ‘extremist right wingers’. My article, “Let the Persecution Of Christians Begin: Oslo is Just the Beginning still stands. Although this man has not stated that Christianity was his cause, I do fear that regardless of his motive, Christians are going to catch hell over this.
For the record, as a Christian, I condemn this act roundly & wholeheartedly- as I would for any type of terrorism. I refute that he was a Christian at all as our beliefs are at complete odds with Breivik’s actions. He can call himself what he wants. He gets no recognition from me as a Christian. He gets no support for me as a Christian. He does not speak for me as a Christian. If he does say he did it for our Christian (Jewish & Islamic) God- the God of Abraham- then he is a liar. God does not want, accept or approve of terrorism. Anyone who claims He does is either self delusional or is simply using Him as an excuse to do what they so desperately wish to do: take revenge on those that they oppose.
But also for the record, assuming that a Muslim terrorist group did it is still the correct assumption- 99% of terrorist actions have been Muslim (see the Let the Persecution of Christians Begin…article). A jihadist group named, Assistants of the Global Jihad, claimed responsibility for the attacks. All of the following articles (and a video of the Norwegian PM himself & statements from both Cameron & Obama) assumed the exact same thing. If I stand corrected, I am in good company. Now, if you don’t mind, I think I will just focus on the sadness of this tradegy & pray a little.
