The news media has had a field day in headlining Anders Breivik’s actions as those of someone from the “far Right,” and as actions that are a consequence of Rightist ideology. Yet Breivik is an avid Zionist whose motives were predicated on Islamophobia. His ideological influences are libertarian and “neo-conservative.” He was playing his part, albeit as a loose cannon, in the “clash of civilizations.”

    The “clash of civilizations” now taking place in the name of the “war on terrorism” is a second Cold War foisted upon the world in order to achieve American global hegemony. With the eclipse of the first Cold War following the implosion of the Soviet bloc, the USA required another world bogeyman to justify its global adventures. The same ideologues undertook a new Cold War, this time against Islam, using the same type of sloganeering. Islamophobia is the new anti-Sovietism, and is serving the same interests.

    I would suggest that it’s not America that is the driving force here and that the interests being served are not America’s. The neocon ideologues merely see American military might as a vehicle for advancing the interests of global capital and the Greater Israel agenda.
