2083 Graphics — the badge of the Justiciar Knight
[ by Charles Cameron — graphic from 2038 manifesto ]
Earlier today, I posted a detail from a portrait of Anders Breivik and commented on the cross in skull motif.
Breivik’s manifesto has a section on medals, regalia and uniforms, and there’s a subsection there titled The badge of the Justiciar Knight, which presents the following image (p. 1101.):
accompanied by this text:
The badge of the Justiciar Knight illustrates a white skull, marked with the symbols of communism, Islam and Nazism on the forehead, impaled on the cross of the martyrs. The background is black. The badge of the Justiciar Knight illustrates our patriotic struggle/ opposition against all three primary hate ideologies of our time: Islam, Multiculturalism (Communism) and Nazism.
The badge of the Justiciar Knight is worn on the left upper arm while the national flag is worn on the right upper arm.
Our military uniform with commendations, insignia and badges should be worn during the trial after a successful operation in cases where the Justiciar Knight survives. The commendations and insignias should be provided post-operation by an Overseer.
In smaller print, Breivik adds:
I ordered two badges from: Indian Art Company (firstname.lastname@example.org). They have a high resolution image on file (file name: dagger and skull). The two badges cost me a total of 220 USD (150 USD for badges and another 70 USD for Fedex shipping).
For what it’s worth, I’ve also found another fairly interesting sword in skull graphic:
This one can be found in at least a dozen places on the web, and was apparently used by “DNS Team” hackers to deface an Israeli commercial website in January 2009.

Judaism, Christianity and Islam all contain what I call "landmines in the garden" — the garden in question being the peace preached in their scriptures (the "peaceable kingdom", paradise, firdaws), and the landmines being those parts of their scriptures and hagiographies which can be used to justify killing…
Whether Breivik should be called a Christian terrorist, or bin Laden an Islamic terrorist, or both should be considered political rather than religious figures, how these scriptures should be and variously are interpreted, and whether Christianity or Islam is more prone to violence, or makes of it an obligation, and if so, under what circumstances and with what constraints — all of these are significant questions…
However, they are not the topic here — my context is the importance of graphics as a matter for analysis, and what I am trying to discuss specifically is the "transpierced skull" imagery used by jihadist and justiciar alike…

Dopy bunch of Muslims, if Muslim they be: the Arabic on the swords’ guard is inverted. Where the image creators probably meant to write:
Muhammad [is the]
which is a routine part of the shahada, in this rendition it reads, from upper to lower:
god [is the]
which is quite a switch from orthodoxy.

Not having any Arabic, I hadn’t seen that… many thanks! — now, would that be shirk, bida, or both?
I also find the shape of the haft / hilt of the sword very strange — Frazetta-esque, perhaps, or something along those lines?

"which is quite a switch from orthodoxy."
Or just practice rather than theory 😉

I think Anders Behring Breivik see himself as a justice fighter and since he has used several years on his manifest, several different points has been created by his mind. He was a politician in the right wing in politics, and I think too it is very frustrated that the left government is so power-arrogant and breaks law and do whatever they want to if they gain on it! I actually do understand the killer, but do not agree to his methods. It should be possible to change Norway without killing the opponents.
It is possible for sick people to take treathening words from terrorist leaders in Islam more serious than not-sick people. In Norway we have a man called Mullah Krekar, not is not in jail even though he repeatedly say that muslims must kill western people, fight against them in muslim war, threatening politicians at the right side in politics, but not get arrested becouse the left side is in government.
I can actually as a norwegian see that many sick people can see this as a war between left and right side in politics in Norway! Think it is not random that he chosed to kill left side in politics instead of muslims!
The government at the left side in politics understood that this was a crime against the left side politics and not Islam and muslims, therefor they went out to press against politicians on the right side (that had not killed anyone) and blaimed them for the murders.

Islam is a religion of peace.That is the official word to all kafirs. Taqiyya. Naskh. Abrogation.

i completely agree with breivik, i wouldn’t kill loads of people but i have the same beliefes on multiculturism
we have muslim hate preachers here in england that actively recruit young muslims to fight against the western world, it makes me sick they are aloud to do this. we have one that we are fighting to deport yet we arn’t aloud as his human rights in his native country of jordon will be breached, really who cares get them out!
i have nothing against all muslims however i completely disagree with them entering our country and trying to change the way we live, and i can only imagine they would feel the same way. i wouldn’t dream of going to another country that has avast majority religion and trying to change it just because i was different, its therebloody country and their religion who are we as outsioders to change it? imgine if christains began to build churches all over muslim countries, i can garentee it wouldn’t be aloud in such a blaze manner as it is with them in prodominantley christian countries

“ i wouldn’t kill loads of people but….”
I strongly advise that you kill not even one person. Just saying.

Most of you are all misinformed or ignorant, do not use phrases from the old testament of the bible, it is a testament that no longer is practiced. Look to the new testament, what you find there is all but love. Islam rapes girls with blonde hair, because that is what they do. History has shown again and again that you cannot co-exist peacefully with Islam. The only thing you can do is to isolate it as our forefathers have done for the last 1400 years. If “islam” means peace does not make islam a peaceful religion, even Satan can tell you he comes in peace, then he rapes your ass and kills you.

Opening your comment here by calling “most of” our writers and readers “all misinformed or ignorant” does little to recommend your views, which are in any case mistaken regarding the Old Testament, of which the Catechism of the Catholic Church says [Pt 1 Sect 1 Ch 2 art 3, 121-123]:
And that’s not even considering Judaism, which would not exist without the Old Testament, which they revere as Torah, Nevi’im and Ketuvim.
Why then should I expect you to hold an informed opinion on Islam, another major (and diverse) world religion?
