Norwegian media applauds propagandizing doctors

In case you've forgotten who Mads Gilberg and Erik Fosse are, here's a BBC interview with Gilbert from during the Gaza conflict. All of his statistics have long since been disproved.

Let's go to the videotape.

Gilbert and Fosse 'worked' at Gaza's Shifa Hospital during Operation Cast Lead and were repeatedly 'interviewed' by the international media. Here's another picture of Gilbert on CNN.

Tundra Tabloids reports that Gilbert and Fosse were recently given a standing ovation by the Israel-hating Norwegian media.
Applause from an enthusiastic press corps broke out again and again when the two Gaza doctors told me about their horrible experiences that doctors at Shifa hospital during the war in January this year.

Only DagenMagazinets journalist asked a critical question about the two doctors' credibility. Fully aware of the ties the two have to Red party in Norway and the party's strong anti-Israeli involvement, we asked questions about doctors' ability to objectivity and credibility.

Mads Gilbert, thanks for the question and said it was totally appropriate to ask such.

- Not activists

- I am very pleased that just Magazinet are present here today. We went to Gaza as doctors and not as journalists, and we do not intend to engage in any kind of propaganda, but convey the strengths of our experiences further. We do not need to lie or reinforce perceptions. We are not party political activists, but we were in Gaza, with solid support from the Norwegian Foreign Ministry, which granted five million Euros for the work, and from Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg in person. He called us and said we had all the Norwegian people in the back, "said Gilbert.

In addition, he stated that they had used three "heavy" Middle East experts as consultants for the book, one is Kåre Willoch.
Their book is called Eyes in Gaza and it is about their experiences in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead (you can imagine...).

Tundra Tabloids also reports that a Finnish newspaper is promoting the book as well.

Anti-Semitism is becoming respectable in Scandinavia. No one is bothering to ask there why Israel merits hostile treatment.

What could go wrong indeed
