Norway to Continue Contact with Hamas-Run PA

At Little Green Footballs, Charles Johnson reports that Norway - which earlier this month attempted to impose a boycott on Israeli products and which gave Yasser Arafat a Nobel Peace Prize in 1994 - plans to continue to have contact with the Palestinian Authority under Hamas. By doing so, Norway is defying the European Union's own list of terror organizations, which includes Hamas. Norway no longer considers Hamas a terrorist organization.

When Hamas surprised almost everybody, including itself, by winning the Palestinian elections, the EU clearly stated that a dialogue with the new Palestinian government required the organisation to renounce violence and accept Israel’s existence. The United States was, naturally, clear on the same issue. Even Russia agreed with this.

Norway’s Jonas Gahr Store, on the other hand, on the same day argued that the election effectively legitimises Hamas and that Norway will continue cooperating with a Hamas-run Palestinian Authority without any preconditions. Norway’s Parliamentary president, former Labour leader Thorbjorn Jagland, also argued that we have to “accept the result of the election” and not “isolate” Hamas by not engaging it in dialogue.

For those of you who have never been over to LGF, now's the time.

I can remember when Norway and the Scandanavian countries were friends of the Jews, especially during WWII. Now, so many years later, we see Sweden, Norway, etc., all the ugly truths come out..even the Netherlands, although not a Scandanavian country, has some hard truths revealed. Alas, Anne Frank zt'l and her short life seem also to have been tainted by Jew hate from some of those the family trusted. Eurabia grows and grows.

What it will take to wake these fools up to reality is beyond my comprehension. What happens in Israel? The canary in the coal mine..9/11? Madrid? London? Beslan? The Phillipines? They will not let themselves think that they might be next...
