Well, it’s official now: Fjordman will be among the “anti-Muslim extremists” called by Geir Lippestad, the defense lawyer for Anders Behring Breivik, to testify at his client’s trial in Oslo later this month. A number of non-Scandinavian media outlets, including The Washington Post, reported this fact today.
Mr. Lippestad has also called on Mullah Krekar to testify, which is a clever stratagem, promoting as it does the “Fjordman, Mullah Krekar — same thing” meme.
In other news, a former nursing student returned to a classroom at Oikos University in Oakland and shot seven people to death, wounding several others. The gunman was apprehended by police not far away a short time after the shootings.
