A closer scrutiny of Gates of Vienna the white supremacist blog which published 'Fjordman' until he went into hiding after the Norway massacre shows it is run by a couple living in Virginia, USA, one Baron Bodissey whose real name is Edward May popularly known as 'Ned May' and his wife who edits the blog under the pseudonym 'Dymphna.' It claims to focus on the 'Great Jihad' in Europe, regularly publishing essays promoting white supremacism, calls for a Muslim Holocaust, vile anti Islam bigotry, lies and polemics dressed up as 'counter jihadism'. Anders Brievik has posted comments here. In the past too, discussions of exterminating the 'Muslim' problem caused waves as in 'Thinking the Unthinkable' in which options to rid the world of Muslims were discussed.

Indeed Dymphna regularly does the rounds at right wing Zionist websites posting comments moaning about their poverty. One such blog is the rabidly anti Palestinian and Islam hating blog 'Sultan Knish' run by Daniel Greenfield an Israeli sabra living in New York, who is a fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Centre the same organisation that sponsors Jihad Watch.

Obsessed with a pathological hatred for Muslims and a delusion that the US military exists to carry out his fantasy of a war on Islam, Daniel's postings regularly dehumanise Palestinians and Muslims, and he invents anti Islam screeds on whim, not unlike Ned May. He also has a Torah Parsha blog and this video shows him in a debate about New Media. In a common theme amongst neo cons, Daniel complains there is a plot to destroy the US military by Obama. In one blog post 'Winning the War on Terror' he suggests genocide:
Whilst Daniel's crowd propagate that Muslims are out to destroy the USA, the truth is these very neo-conservatives bankrupted the US economy by leading it into trillion dollar wars on fake premises and fabricated evidence. As Julian Borger reported in The Guardian, the evidence for the Iraq war was fabricated by the now defunct 'The Office of Special Plans' affiliated with hard line likudniks whose mission was to drag the USA into a war with Iran then Saudi Arabia, and Syria with the aim of securing Israel's regional supremacy. The BBC Panorama documentary explored this nexus in 'The War Party'.
‘We would have to be willing to kill millions, directly or indirectly, while maintaining an alliance that would defy Russia, China and the First World nations that would accuse us of genocide. The real name for this war might well turn out to be World War III. It would take a Churchill or a Roosevelt to launch something like that, and while the world would be radically different afterward, it might well turn out to be radioactively different too.’
When the worlds media was questioning the role Robert Spencer and his crowd played in influencing the massacre, Daniel Greenfield, rushed to defend his buddies with 'Brievexploitation' a pathetic attempt to divert blame. A cursory glance at the comments underneath this post, dated 8/06/2011 shows Dymphna reminding Daniel how her ilk suffer for being philo-semitic:
'The fledgling right wing of European politics, the only part of it that was NOT anti-Semitic, has been ripped from the body politic in Europe and thrown on the ash heap.'After reminding him and his readers of the huge sacrifices made, she goes on to subtly beg:
'Perhaps you could suggest to Mr. Horowitz that as part of discovering ABB's networks, he could have that analysis done? Certainly if I had the money I'd get it asap.'Thus whilst smearing the philanthropist George Soros as being an ally of nazis Daniel links to Gates of Vienna on his blogroll.
Far right Islamophobic activists have forged alliances of convenience with radical Zionists and regard Israel as an ally, not least because they see Israel's treatment of Palestinians as a role model for how Muslims should be treated. Hard line Zionists see it as an opportunity to lessen the growing Muslim influence in the USA or Europe which they see as detrimental to a greater Israel. Stooges like Geert Wilders are funded in the hope they can halt Muslim immigration and influence. Marginalised as they are, some European nationalist groups are willing to shed their traditional Jew hatred in an attempt to find allies, but as often happens in marriages of convenience, it doesn't take much for cracks to appear.
Pamela Geller's association with the EDL caused waves when Roberta Moore claimed they had Jew hating members and were not sufficiently pro Israel. In Europe, German newspaper Der Spiegel probed this alliance in 'The Likud Connection' showing how some marginalized right wing populists are going the Geert Wilders way. This bizarre coupling has split the far right movement in Europe which has traditionally been anti-semitic.
Meanwhile, Ned May, an EDL activist, serves as director of International Free Press Society an American and Denmark based group whose members claim to fight threats to free speech from 'forces within Islam'. IFPS's board members include the familiar names Bat Ye'or, Robert Spencer, Andrew Bostom and affiliates like Aish Ha Torah. Names which have already been exposed for their leading roles in fomenting anti Muslim sentiment by Think Progress in their groundbreaking investigation Fear Inc.

Ned often mixes in a pro Israel and pro Jewish stance liberally peppering his polemics with quotes from the Talmud and expresses a desire (like Dymphna) to be in the pay of Mossad. In this he has help from fellow bloggers like his friend a Jerusalem based Israeli American legal expert. No, not David Yerushalmi, but one Carl Mordechai Sherer, who runs Israel Matzav as 'Carl in Jerusalem'. In a 2009 blog post Charles Johnson banned Carl from Little Green Footballs in the comments section ( 282, and 407 and 409) where he had been a heavy commenter for posting a link to Gates of Vienna, and ended the discussion that followed with a curt 'I will have nothing to do with people who promote fascist creeps.' Stung by LGF's criticism, a blog war followed, in which Ned May tries to salvage some dignity for his cesspool.
A particularly revealing blog post is where Carl can be seen giving Ned advice on the legality of declaring Jewish rights to Israel as an indigenous people, stating he fully supported a 'greater Israel' though the world won't allow it. Ned in turn laments a common nazi theme which he modifies to this convoluted logic:
'Regardless of the merits of the case, I agree with Carl that the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples will never be applied to Jews — or to white Europeans, for that matter.Ned May must not have heard of the millions of Caucasian Muslims including Russians, American Muslims or the British and European converts. Carl, who did not see fit to tell his friend that nearly half of Israeli's are non Caucasian Mizrahi, Asian and Ethiopian Jews was however, quick to hypocritically cry 'nazi' at white supremacist Occupy Wall St protesters.
“Indigenous Peoples” are “brown” peoples, especially Muslims, American Indians, Australian Aboriginals, and black Africans. Anything using the term that is passed by the UN will only be allowed to apply to those peoples, and never to Jews or Caucasians.'
Incidentally, Carl, who has lauded Fjordman's postings at Gates of Vienna gushes at Israel Matzav:
'For those who have never been to Gates of Vienna, go check it out. It's some of the highest level intellectual material you will ever read on the Internet.'How high is that 'intellectual level' ? Let us quote Ned verbatim where he explains the purpose of Gates of Vienna is to spread lies at grassroots level, in short; telling a lie often enough makes one believe it. Not just to lie but to oversell it. In a blog titled 'Overselling the Meme' he states:
'This must be accomplished at a level well below that of the celebrities and famous pundits, because action on that battlefield invites a massive and well-funded counterattack by CAIR, ISNA, the OIC, etc.'Using hyperbole and flowery nonsense, he spells out his mission in life:
He then moves on to vocalise the Jerusalem Post's stance:
'This is certainly not the kind of support Israel needs. It is the type of Islamophobia that is all too reminiscent of the Nazis’ attitude toward the Jews. Jews, Muslims and Christians in Israel and around the world should be standing together against such hate crimes.'Caroline has also given explicit permission for Gates of Vienna to publish a Norwegian version of Norway's Problem which Ned did after gushing:
'Under normal circumstances, Gates of Vienna does not publish in any languages other than English (in its American, British, Canadian, and Australian variants). However, we are making an exception for the following opinion piece by Caroline Glick.'Setting the tone for this unique honour, Ned continues:
'The result was the column below. Several Scandinavians requested that we publish a Norwegian translation, and with Ms. Glick’s permission it was kindly translated by Cecilie.'Indeed! We have here Israel's most 'most prominent' woman as Maariv named her in 2003, and the Senior Contributing Editor of the Jerusalem Post giving permission to publish a translated version of her article at a hate site (that credits and links back to her) espousing views deemed repugnant by her editor-in-chief. One can recall the hue and cry when Octavia Nasr tweeted about a Hezbollah sheikh's death that led to CNN firing her!
Like her fellow Israeli American extremists, Caroline Glick conveniently plays the 'nazi' card when hate propaganda from anti-semites, white or black supremacists hits closer to home.
