Norway bomber cites Ayaan Hirsi Ali?
So I came across a blog entry from Sam Harris about the Nordic bomber/shooter.
I have written a fair amount about the threat that Islam poses to open societies, but I am happy to say that Breivik appears never to have heard of me. He has, however, digested the opinions of many writers who share my general concerns—Theodore Dalrymple, Robert D. Kaplan, Lee Harris, Ibn Warraq, Bernard Lewis, Andrew Bostom, Robert Spencer, Walid Shoebat, Daniel Pipes, Bat Ye’or, Mark Steyn, Samuel Huntington, et al.
He even singles out my friend and colleague Ayaan Hirsi Ali for special praise, repeatedly quoting a blogger who thinks she deserves a Nobel Peace Prize. With a friend like Breivik, one will never want for enemies.
Is this true? Who are the people listed? I never heard of any of them.
Another thing that is getting my mind, is the role of idealogies. How much of the above people do you think played a role in fueling Ander's convictions?
