EDL Facebook page posting comments supportive of Breivik

The website Blottr reports that the former ‘company director’ of the English Defence League and administrator of the EDL Jewish Division Facebook page, Roberta Moore, has praised the Norwegian terrorist, Anders Behring Breivik on the Jewish Division’s official Facebook page.

From Blottr:

“The English Defence League's company director, and administrator of the group's Jewish division Facebook page, has praised Norwegian mass murder Andres Breivik on the social network.

“Roberta Moore is officially listed as the company director for 'EDL ENGLISH DEFENCE LEAGUE LTD', and has close links to EDL leader Tommy Robinson, and the group's financier Alan Lake aka Alan Ayling. She has defended Breivik's actions before, and has done so again from the EDL's Jewish division Facebook page.

The images of the comments, which are pictured in the article, show that the official EDL Jewish Division posted a message reading, “Just to clarify things and put them in the right context:

“Anders Breivik’s victims on Utoyah were terrorist supporting scum.

“We understand Anders Breiviks [sic] rage.

“We are at war…WE did not declare it, muzzrats declared war on US all…The truth is, Breivik did us all a favour”

The article continues with details on the recent arrest of Moore stating:

“It has been reported that Moore was arrested on Saturday outside Downing Street for racist taunts towards a Nakba commemoration. Nakba Day is generally commemorated on May 15, the day after the Gregorian calendar date for Israeli independence day (Yom Ha'atzmaut). For the Palestinians it is an annual day of commemoration of the displacement that followed the Israeli Declaration of Independence in 1948.”

Earlier this month, a UKIP candidate was stripped of his candidacy for supporting Breivik’s theory on ‘Islamisation’. A man was arrested in April for making threats about an ‘Oslo-style’ attack on Facebook, and the leader and spokesperson for the EDL, Stephen Lennon, was last month forced to deny claims that he supported Breivik after making comments in an interview with a Norwegian newspaper that seem to suggest otherwise.
