Was Norway’s Terrorism Timed to Celebrate Israel’s King David Hotel Attack?

“…whenever countries lately exhibit anti-Jew behavior, natural disasters happen, sometimes not so natural…” – Comment on pro-Israel article

(OSLO /SALEM) – Suspected right-wing terrorist Anders Behring Breivik is reported to have written many posts on the website Aftenposten described as “Islam-critical and Israel-friendly”. The attack on Oslo came exactly 65 years to the day after the Israeli Irgun blew up the King David Hotel in Jerusalem that left over 90 people dead. The violent blast even killed passers by and people in adjacent neighboring buildings. 91 people of various nationalities were killed and 46 were injured This was an attack directed at British soldiers who just the year before, were still fighting the Nazi’s.

Dagens Næringsliv, Norway’s leading business publication, writes that Breivik sought to start a Norwegian version of the Tea Party movement in Norway.

Sadly, it is not a major surprise for many students of history, to hear that the alleged right wing terrorist responsible for dozens killed in Norway has connections to both fascism movements, and Israel.

That statement may offend the sensibilities of many, but the stark truth is that Israel was literally formed by bands of terrorists in the 1940’s who killed many British in their quest to establish a Jewish state.

Beyond the attack on the King David Hotel, the Irgun group is remembered best for the Deir Yassin massacre in Palestine that left several hundred men, women and children slaughtered. The Irgun were known as a group that strongly believed in retaliation against the British and all non-Jewish residents of the area, and even had conflict with Jews who didn’t believe in or failed to endorse their violence.

Norwegian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Jonas Gahr Store, says Norway stands ready to recognize a Palestinian state. “We are ready to recognize a Palestinian state. I await the actual resolution text Palestinians will promote the UN General Assembly in September, said the Minister”.

This is anything but welcome news in Israel, where the Knesset outlawed involvement in the Israeli boycott. Now anyone in Israel who is caught referencing or promoting the BDS (Boycott Divestment Sanction) movement faces charges.

Israeli writer Itamar Eichner wrote the article: Israel: Norway inciting us framing Norway as little less than a dangerous country in regard to Israeli security.

Here is the rest of: Israel: Norway inciting us from the Bob Tuskin Show

Serious diplomatic conflict: Israel is accusing the Norwegian government of funding and encouraging blatant anti-Israel incitement.

According to reports received by the Foreign Ministry in Jerusalem, the Trondheim Municipality is funding a trip to New York for students taking part in the “Gaza Monologues” play, which “deals with the suffering of children in Gaza as a result of the Israeli occupation.”

The play, written by a Palestinian from Gaza, will be presented at the United Nations headquarters. It joins an exhibition by a Norwegian artists displayed in Damascus, Beirut, and Amman, with the help of Norway’s embassies in Syria,Lebanon, and Jordan.

The exhibition shows killed Palestinian babies next to Israel Defense Forces helmets, which are reminiscent of Nazi soldiers’ helmets, and an Israeli flag drenched in blood.

The Norwegians are also helping the distribution of a documentary film called “Tears of Gaza” to festivals across the world. According to the Foreign Ministry, the film deals with the suffering of Gaza’s children as well, without mentioning Hamas, the rockets fired at Israel, and Israel’s right to defend itself.

The film shows Gazans chanting, “Itbah al-Yahud,” but the Norwegian translation says “slaughter the Israelis” instead of “slaughter the Jews”.

In addition, a book written by two Norwegian doctors who were the only foreigners in Gaza to give interviews during Operation Cast Lead was published recently. The book, which accuses IDF soldiers of deliberately killing women and children, is a bestseller in Norway and has been warmly recommended by none other than Norwegian Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Støre.

A comment on the story by Itamar Eichner, published by The Bob Tuskin Show, may be more telling than what the writer himself said:

“I have noticed a pattern, whenever countries lately exhibit anti-Jew behavior, natural disasters happen, sometimes not so natural. Now I can’t help but think that God has allowed this to happen to Norway because of Norways disrespect of God’s Holy People” – ‘Bernadette’

And right on cue, another comment from the same far right-wing Website, but one that seems to have been written by a far less hateful person:

Bernadette”You’ve got to be kidding. Where has it ever been proven that God had anything to do with the writing of that horrid text of smiting, incest, rape, pillage, and revenge known as the Bible? All we have is the word of the scribes, who placed their own imaginary tribe in a lofty position superior to their imagined ‘goyim’ enemies. It’s all the delusional paranoia of a group of sociopathic supremacists, and when their black ops agents go around sowing chaos and taking revenge on what you call anti-semitism (which is really just waking up and seeing what’s been going on, and not standing for it), you fall back on your ‘God’s chosen people’ drivel programming and say God’s taking revenge.

“I ask you, why would you accept a god that plays favorites? You’re either part of the delusional fantasy or beyond brainwashed by Judaic propaganda”. – Akolnidre

It is a fact that children represent a large percentage of Israel’s murder victims. In Israel life is highly devalued in regard to Palestinians, a notion that stands in strong contrast to standard western values where we are raised to believe that all men are created equal. Instead human beings die indiscriminately in daily raids on Gaza (Daily raids of planes and drones – by Israel… daily.). Based on many comments and emails sent to Salem-News.com by Israelis and their supporters, there is a belief that killing children in Palestine is acceptable because this prevents them from growing up to be a threat to Israel. It is sad to think that type of philosophy may have been translated to children in Norway whose parents are connected to the Labour Party.

While Israel’s writers attack Norway for its sympathy toward the battered Palestinian population, it should be noted that Norway was one of the first countries to recognize Israel, on 4 February 1949. The countries established diplomatic relation later that year. The crumbling relations and now the new terrorist attack, may create hostile conditions for the 553 Israeli citizens in Norway and the 260 or so Norwegians who live in Israel.

As the accompanying photo shows, the PM whose office was targeted in the attacks, was photographed near a sign promoting the growing Boycott movement against Israeli apartheid. He made the statement earlier this week, when Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas visited Norway. The remarks were repeated during a debate on Utøya.

Eskil Pedersen, a Norwegian politician and leader of the Workers’ Youth League (AUF), the youth-wing of Norway’s leading Labour Party, said they expect Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to bring the matter to the UN, where will he ask for UN membership and recognition of a Palestinian state within the borders before the 1967 war, with East Jerusalem as its capital.

He added, “Labour Youth will have a more activist Middle East policy and we have to recognize Palestine. NOK NOK’s, now we have to get the peace process into a new track”.

Annie Robbins was kind enough to send out the original and translated items below from European media:

Norway horror: 80 die in camp shooting, 7 in blast

OSLO, Norway (AP) — A Norwegian who dressed as a police officer to gun down summer campers killed at least 80 people at an island retreat, horrified police said early Saturday. … The motive was unknown, but both attacks were in areas connected to the ruling Labor Party government. The youth camp, about 20 miles (35 kilometers) northwest of Oslo, is organized by the party’s youth wing, and the prime minister had been scheduled to speak there Saturday.

The terrorist was a right wing Christian. Norwegian TV via automated translation:

According to TV2’s sources, the arrested belong to the right-extremist groups in eastern Norway, and the man must have registered two weapons on their name – an automatic weapon and a pistol of the type of Glock. … Breivik listed in their Facebook profile as a conservative and Christian, and he may have a connection to the extreme right environment.

The rightwing Norwegian Progress Party and its surrounding allotment of rightwing groups are historic fascistic, pro-apartheid and today very much in support of a likudnik Israel.

Via Newshoggers a report from a Norwegian TV site on the activities in the Labour Party youth camp may explain the killer’s motive.

Text:

During the second day of Labour Youth League summer camp at Utøya got the Labour Party’s young hopefuls visit by Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Store.

Together with the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation correspondent Sidsel Wold and Norwegian People’s Aid Kirsten Belck-Olsen, discussed the Foreign Minister of the deadlock between Israel and the Palestinian Authority.

As foreign minister arrived Utøya he was met with a demand from the AUF that Norway must recognize a Palestinian state.

– The Palestinians must have their own state, the occupation must end, the wall must be demolished and it must happen now, said the Foreign Minister to cheers from the audience.

– Norway is prepared to recognize

Earlier this week, when Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas visited Norway, the Minister said to TV 2 news channel that Norway stands ready to recognize a Palestinian state . This he repeated during the debate on Utøya.

– We are ready to recognize a Palestinian state. I await the actual resolution text Palestinians will promote the UN General Assembly in September, said the Minister.

In autumn it is expected that Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas will bring the matter to the UN. Where will he ask for UN membership and recognition of a Palestinian state within the borders before the 1967 war, with East Jerusalem as its capital.

Wednesday said AUF leader Eskil Pedersen that the AUF want a unilateral economic embargo of Israel from the Norwegian side.

– Labour Youth will have a more activist Middle East policy and we have to recognize Palestine. NOK NOK’s, now we have to get the peace process into a new track, said Pedersen.

The foreign minister admitted that the situation is untenable, but believes that the boycott is the wrong tool.

– Boycott will be to move from dialogue to monologue. It is difficult to open the door the day we will talk with Israel, said the Minister.
