I wish I could see more bloggers post about the contributions of Fjordman exposing Islam’s anti-Western nature. Dave the Sage does this on the blog The Conservative Citizen.

Meet Fjordman: Europe’s Most Infamous Anti-Islamist Writer
February 1, 2015
“The civilization of Europe, America, and Australia exists today at all only because of the victories of civilized man over the enemies of civilization, because of victories stretching through the centuries from the days of Miltiades and Themistocles to those of Charles Martel in the eighth century and those of John Sobieski in the seventeenth century. During the thousand years that included the careers of the Frankish soldier and the Polish king the Christians of Asia and Africa proved unable to wage successful war with the Moslem conquerors; and in consequence Christianity practically vanished from the two continents; and today nobody can find in them any ” social values” whatever, in the sense in which we use the words, so far as the sphere of Mohammedan influence and the decaying native Christian churches are concerned. There are such “social values” today in Europe, America, and Australia only because during those thousand years the Christians of Europe possessed the warlike power to do what the Christians of Asia and Africa had failed to do, that is, to beat back the Moslem invader. It is of course worth while for sociologists to discuss the effect of this European militarism on “social values,” but only if they first clearly realize and formulate the fact that if the European militarism had not been able to defend itself against and to overcome the militarism of Asia and Africa, there would have been no “social values” of any kind in our world today, and no sociologists to discuss them.” -Theodore Roosevelt, “Social Values and National Existence”, Papers and Proceedings of the American Sociological Society
The writer and author Peder Are Nøstvold Jensen, better known as Fjordman, is a European treasure and a near extinct rarity unfortunately. I have admired and followed him for many years.
He’s been an inspiration to me personally as a writer and essayist. In fact, his book Defeating Eurabia was the catalyst for my own book No Apologies which will be released on Amazon for the Kindle this spring.
Fjordman has paid the price for having the courage to stand up for what is right and true. It is incredible, that in today’s Europe, one can hardly dare to stand up ones culture and country without undergoing intense scrutiny, harassment, and sometimes even persecution from the authorities. Not to mention risking death at the hands of the Muslims hordes who those same authorities have allowed to overrun the borders and flood the continent in their millions.
The goal of European and Western survivalists — and that’s what we are, it is our very survival that is at stake — should not be to “fix” the ideology of Multiculturalism but to be mentally prepared for its collapse, and to develop coherent answers to what went wrong and prepare to implement the necessary remedies when the time comes. We need to seize the window of opportunity, and in order to do so, we need to define clearly what we want to achieve. What went wrong with our civilization, and how can we survive and hopefully regenerate, despite being an increasingly vulnerable minority in an often hostile world? - Fjordman
There was once a time when the countries and nations of Europe fought ferociously and bravely against the various barbarian waves that sought to conquer it. Those days are apparently only mere memories now in the minds of those who read dusty history books and no longer part of the mentality of a civilization that is under unending racial, cultural, and religious assault. One would think that the literal descendants of the vast hordes of fierce warriors who vigorously attacked and eventually helped destroy the great and once powerful Roman Empire would learn from what occurred in their own past, on their own continent, by their own forefathers.
It is heartbreaking to watch the slow and steady suicide of a once proud and powerful race, people, continent, and civilization. They have become utterly, and possibly fatally, infected with the deadly diseases of progressivism; multiculturalism, atheism, socialism, tolerance, diversity, and political correctness. Europe has been stubborn in clinging to these discredited ‘isms’ that undermine the very foundations of the very things that once made them great and powerful Peoples and Empires.
The two great European civil wars of the last century seems to have so weakened and disillusioned the cradle of Western Civilization that the infection of progressivism was able to get a stranglehold on its victim. It hasn’t yet let go yet as it has swept from country to country across the continent with barely a whimper of dissent from the population.
Fjordman is an admirable exception to that rule and has for many years been a forceful voice for the preservation of European civilization and against the Islamization of Europe. After the 2011 Norway attacks by Anders Behring Breivik (see Is Anders Behring Breivik the Nordic Che Guevara?) Peder was ‘outed’ as Fjordman (a dangerous thing in Europe), lost his job, came under intense scrutiny from the government, and had his personal computer confiscated by the police. He is currently in exile from his native Norway and has paid the price for speaking out for the truth.
If you are not acquainted with the writings of Fjordman and his essays then I humbly suggest you take the time to explore his passionate and intellectual defense of Europe, common sense, and the preservation of Western Civilization. An up to date collection of his writings, the Fjordman Files, can be viewed here.
A little bit about my future plans. At the time of writing, I am completing the manuscript for a book that will be partly about the Breivik case. I have chosen to call it Witness to Madness. This will probably be self-published and should be in circulation at Amazon.com and other venues … most likely as both an ebook and as a printed paper book. At the time of writing I have surpassed 51,000 words that have already been edited and largely proofread. I am editing an analysis of Breivik’s so-called manifesto that will not be published in advance online, but will be exclusive to the book. When this is added within a few days, the word count for already edited material will be about 70,000 words.
Strictly speaking, this would be long enough to publish a full-length book if I so choose. However, I wish to include a bit more material before I publish, partly about how I experienced the Breivik case — including my meeting with Norwegian police — partly about Breivik’s psyche and the trial, and finally a section about the mass media and dishonest journalism. I have the option to include even more material than this, for instance about Islamization and Western appeasement.
I will wrap up the book at some point this fall and have already hired a proofreader.
Thereafter I will complete the manuscript for my book The Curious Civilization, which was already 90% finished at the time of Anders Behring Breivik’s massacre…. I hope to find a regular publisher for this title from the start, so it won’t be in circulation for some time yet.
After that, I will complete a book about Islam, and why I don’t think it can be reformed.
I have plans for several more books, too, possibly one about the self-destruction of Sweden and its model of the welfare state; maybe one about the EU, or about what went wrong with Western civilization.
In the long run I have serious plans for a huge brick of a book of a thousand-plus pages about European accomplishments over the past 40,000 years, from beer to Beethoven. This ambitious project is going to take me several more years to complete, however. It won’t be in circulation any time soon. –Fjordman
