Who is Fjordman?

Peder Are Nøstvold Jensen is a Norwegian blogger who writes under the pseudonym Fjordman and who has been characterised as far-right and Islamophobic. Jensen wrote anonymously as Fjordman starting in 2005, until he disclosed his identity in 2011. He has been active in the counterjihad movement, which argues that multiculturalism, particularly Muslim immigration, poses a threat to Western civilization. According to The Independent, Jensen "has written numerous screeds accusing Muslims of secretly planning to take over Europe." Notably, he has advocated the 'Eurabia' conspiracy theory in a self-published book titled Defeating Eurabia, and argued that all Muslims should be deported from Europe. Anders Behring Breivik quoted him extensively in his manifesto. In 2013 Fjordman was given financial support by the organization Fritt Ord to write a book "about the Anders Behring Breivik case and how I got dragged into it against my will". According to the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation, Fjordman is "considered a 'hero' among the bloggers and debaters constituting the new far right." Fjordman considers himself being ostracized as a "public enemy" by pundits and politicians in Norway which he "had to flee" in 2011.
