French writer Richard Millet, who caused an uproar late August for praising Norwegian mass killer Anders Breivik in a pamphlet, has had to step down from a top position with France’s prestigious publisher Gallimard, though he remains on the payroll.
A writer who argued in an essay that Norway deserved mass-killer Anders Breivik has been forced to step down from a prestigious role with top French publishers Gallimard.
Richard Millet remains a Gallimard employee, the company stressed Friday, but he will no longer sit on its committee of readers, which helps select books for publication and shapes the output of established writers.
Millet will continue to look after the writers he handled for the publishers, Gallimard said.
It remains to be seen how many of them will want to continue to be associated with him following an outcry over a publication branded "fascist" by a group of 120 writers this week.
Antoine Gallimard, chief executive of the publisher, had written to Millet to express his shock at the end of August, soon after the pamphlet "In Literary Praise of Anders Breivik" was published.
On Monday, Gallimard wrote to the writer once more to remind him that "as a member of the committee of readers, he represents the (publishing) house."
Millet's position had been made untenable and he duly announced his resignation from the reading committee late on Thursday.
The writer insists he does not approve of Breivik's crimes but wrote approvingly of the Norwegian's 1,500-page online manifesto which outlines his hatred for social democracy, immigration and multiculturalism.
"Breivik is without doubt what Norway deserves," Millet wrote, arguing that the killer was as much a child of a broken family as he was the product of an ideological-racial divide caused by immigration from outside Europe.
A prolific novelist and essayist, Millet has been the editor of two winners of France's literary prize, the Goncourt -- Jonathan Littel (2006) and last year's winner Alexis Jenni.
Despite a traditional reluctance in France's literary world to do anything which could be seen as restricting the freedom of speech, several Gallimard writers had urged the publisher to distance itself from Millet.
In an article for Le Monde this week, to which 120 writers put their names, novelist Annie Ernaux desribed the essay as a "fascist pamphlet that is a disgrace to literature."

Hillary Clinton wastes no time... Celebrates Muslim Holiday two days after 9/11 Attacks with man who supported Scotland's release of Lockerbie Bomber.(Barracknow).Two days after an act of war was committed against the United States in both Egypt and Libya, on sovereign American territory, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was in the Ben Franklin Room in Washington, D.C., celebrating the end of Ramadan (Eid Mubarak). With her was Ali Sulaiman Aujali, Libya's Ambassador to the United States, who resigned from that position under Gadhafi in early 2011 but became Libya's Ambassador to the U.S. again in August of that year.
Here is how Clinton began her speech, via the State Department website:
Good evening, and although I am many weeks overdue in saying it: Eid Mubarak. No matter how belated we are honoring Eid and the end of Ramadan, this is a cherished tradition here at the State Department. And I would like to thank all of you for being here, including the many members of the Diplomatic Corps.Before we get to the words of Aujali, perhaps we should take a look at his previous positions as well as his willingness to associate with Muslim Brotherhood-connected groups. AllGov reported in February of 2011 that Aujali was a supporter of the man convicted of the Lockerbie bombing:
Tonight, our gathering is more somber than any of us would like. This comes during sad and difficult days for the State Department family. We lost four Americans. They were good and brave men. They were committed to the cause of building a brighter future for the people of Libya. And we condemn the violence in the strongest terms, the violence against our posts in Benghazi, in Egypt, and now in Yemen.
The Libyan ambassador is with us tonight, and I want to take a moment to thank him for the support that his government and the Libyan people have shown to the United States in this tragedy, particularly the outpouring of feelings of grief and loss because of the killing of our ambassador.
Ambassador Aujali, would you mind saying a few words?
In September 2009, he defended the transfer of convicted Lockerbie bomber Abdel Baset al-Megrahi from Scotland to Libya by explaining that most Libyans thought Megrahi was falsely convicted.Question: What did al-Megrahi and the perpetrators of the 9/11/12 attacks have in common?
Answer: The blood of dead Americans on their hands.
In July of 2011, one month before he became ambassador again, Aujali spoke at the annual Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) convention. Not only that but he was introduced by none other than Council on American Islamic Relations Chicago (CAIR-Chicago) Executive Director Ahmed Rehab.(Who left for Egypt to help the 'Arab Spring).
How many times must it be said that both the ISNA and CAIR were unindicted co-conspirators in the largest terrorism financing trial in the United States? The ISNA was identified as a Muslim Brotherhood group (by a Muslim Brotherhood document) that seeks the destruction of the United States from within.
One day after the recent 9/11 attacks, Aujali appeared alongside ISNA President Mohamed Magid and Haris Tarin, the director of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC). Two other individuals present are case studies in how Muslim Brotherhood groups in the U.S. provide politically correct cover for themselves by forming 'interfaith' coalitions, which are made up of useful dupes or complicit deceivers. In this instance, those two men are Rabbi David Saperstein and Rev. Welton Gaddy.
Incidentally, Tarin, Magid, and Saperstein each have something in common when it comes to Huma Abedin, Clinton's closest advisor. They all have either defended her or, in Magid's case, sat with her at the White House iftar dinner last month, at which Barack Obama spoke in support of Abedin.
Of course, Aujali, at both the event on September 12th with Magid, Tarin, et. al. and at the Eid dinner on the 13th, expressed sympathy for the victims of the 9/11/12 attacks.
Indications are that the attacks on U.S. Embassies in Cairo, at least, had the backing of the Salafist Nour Party. It's important to understand that Salafism is essentially the Muslim Brotherhood without the mask. An example might be the contrast between the most recognized cleric in Great Britain - Salafist Anjem Choudary - and Ground Zero mosque Imam, Feisal Abdul Rauf. Both men seem to seek similar ends but through different means.
When Salafists - who seem to have no trouble waving al-Qaeda flags - commit acts of violence and murder, as was committed in the 9/11 attacks of both 2001 and 2012, Brotherhood entities and individuals necessarily must distance themselves from such things, especially in the United States.

Obama Regime Sides With Muslim Mobs
(sheikyermami.com) With our embassies going up in smoke all over the Muslim world thanks to their groveling policies, you’ve got to wonder just how useless our “leaders” are. Here is the answer, compliments of White House Press Secretary Jay Carney:White House Spokesturd Jay Carney told reporters that the Middle East protests were in response to a video.
“These protests were in reaction to a video that had spread to the region… The unrest we’ve seen in the region has been in reaction to a video.”He’s wrong.

“There is no god but Allah and Mohammad is his messenger”The MSM is in full denial mode that these are protests and not terrorist acts. Yhey are desperately trying to cover for their Dear Leader.

. . .Sec. Clinton’s statement on Thursday bring to light her address to the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) after the UN’s Human Rights Council passed resolution 16/18. The resolution was heavily promoted as a method to “combat religious intolerance.” In her remarks, Mrs. Clinton said:
The Human Rights Council has given us a comprehensive framework for addressing this issue on the international level. But at the same time, we each have to work to do more to promote respect for religious differences in our own countries. In the United States, I will admit, there are people who still feel vulnerable or marginalized as a result of their religious beliefs. And we have seen how the incendiary actions of just a very few people, a handful in a country of nearly 300 million, can create wide ripples of intolerance. We also understand that, for 235 years, freedom of expression has been a universal right at the core of our democracy. So we are focused on promoting interfaith education and collaboration, enforcing antidiscrimination laws, protecting the rights of all people to worship as they choose, and to use some old-fashioned techniques of peer pressure and shaming, so that people don’t feel that they have the support to do what we abhor.
