Eurabia map

Eurabia is a conspiracy theory[1] that an alliance between the European Union and the Mediterranean Arab countries espouses anti-Americanism, anti-Zionism and the delegitimisation of the State of Israel in the eyes of the world community,[2] in which there are those who don't see Israel as legitimate to begin with.[3] It is a portmanteau of the words 'Europe' and 'Arabia'.[4] The concept has its origins in the teachings of Gisèle Littman, who coined the term[4] and began gaining fame after 9/11.[5] One widely known person who is a fan of Gisèle's ideology is Anders Breivik, who killed 77 of his fellow Norwegians on 22 July 2011.[6][1] He cited Gisèle 59 times in his manifesto '2083: A European Declaration of Independence'. According to Chip Berlet, 'Breivik is pro-Israel because he sees it as a bulwark against Islam.'[7] Geert Wilders is another widely known anti-Eurabist.[8]
