An examination of Breivik's views, and his support for far-right European political movements, makes it clear that only by interrogating the nexus of Islamophobia and right-wing Zionism can one understand the political beliefs behind the terrorist attack.Amman-based blogger Alex Kane then goes on to give a list of examples of Breivik's ideology, which included a total of two mentions of Israel, one of which described the ideology of the 'Vienna school of thought' which clearly was not Breivik's invention.
