Alan Dershowitz on Norway's complicity with terrorism

Alan Dershowitz rips the Norwegian government over its complicity with terrorism against Israel.
The causes of terrorism are multifaceted but at bottom they have a common cause: namely a belief that violence is the proper response to policies that the terrorists disagree with. The other common cause is that terrorism has often been rewarded. Norway, for example, has repeatedly rewarded Palestinian terrorism against Israel, while punishing Israel for its efforts to protect its civilians. While purporting to condemn all terrorist acts, the Norwegian government has sought to justify Palestinian terrorism as having a legitimate cause. This clearly is an invitation to continued terrorism.

It is important for the world never to reward terrorism by supporting the policies of those who employ it as an alternative to reason discourse, diplomatic resolution or political compromise.

I know of no reasonable person who has tried to justify the terrorist attacks against Norway. Yet there are many Norwegians who not only justify terrorist attacks against Israel, but praise them, support them, help finance them, and legitimate them.

The world must unite in condemning and punishing all terrorist attacks against innocent civilians, regardless of the motive or purported cause of the terrorism. Norway, as a nation, has failed to do this. It wants us all to condemn the terrorist attack on its civilians, and we should all do that, but it refuses to live by a single standard.

Nothing good ever comes from terrorism, so don't expect the Norwegians to learn any lessons from its own victimization. As the Ambassador made clear in his benighted interview, "those of us who believe [the occupation to be the cause of the terror against Israel] will not change their minds because of the attack in Oslo." In other words, they will persist in their bigoted view that Israel is the cause of the terrorism directed at it, and that if only Israel were to end the occupation (as it offered to do in 2000-2001 and again in 2007), the terrorism will end. Even Hamas, which Norway supports in many ways, has made clear that it will not end its terrorism as long as Israel continues to exist. Hamas believes that Israel's very existence is the cause of the terrorism against it. That sounds a lot like the ranting of the man who engaged in the act of terrorism against Norway.

The time is long overdue for Norwegians to do some deep soul searching about their sordid history of complicity with all forms of bigotry ranging from the anti-Semitic Nazis to the anti-Semitic Hamas. There seems to be a common thread.
Indeed there does seem to be a common thread. Read the whole thing.

Eyes rolling again... Mr. Dershowitz, please go one step further to discover the central kernal... Ask these people whether Breivik, raised in a Labor family, ever attended that Marxist/Caliphate Island Paradise Summer Camp in his younger years. And, whether yes or no, what did he learn about using terrorism to get one's way in his Labor upbringing.

I'd like to see Mr. Dershowitz ask the exact same question regarding Loughner of Tucson, who performed a terrorist attack against Gabby Giffords and her audience at a shopping center event. Has Mr. Dershowitz also tried to blame his political "enemies", the Tea Party? If you do some googling, Mr. Dershowitz, you find out that Loughner was educated in a new age charter school system, with curriculum developed by one of Bill Ayers' organizations. That would be Bill Ayers the marxist BOMBER, part of the marcuse coterie, who have worked since the 60s to demolish western civilized society. Or maybe Mr. Dershowitz actually agrees with Bill Ayers that WTO-style grievance and street action are cooler than old fashioned boring ol' Western Civ. Oh, the humanity!

So, Mr. Dershowitz, you guys on the Left really need to ask these questions, research the day to day message the Left is giving to the youth they get their claws into... Until you get all the facts and put them in order (and rework your message to the youth in all corners of your domain), you have LOST credibility... you will become a menace in coddling events in Norway, Tucson, and beyond!
