Dagbladet reports that “Socialist Left radical Ingrid Fiskaa” has become deputy to Minister of the Environment and Development Erik Solheim (Socialist Left). Going back to the Saturday of April 19th 2008, we find Ms.Fiskaa admitting the following in communist daily Klassekampen (Class struggle):
“In certain dark moments I might wish that the UN fired some precision guided missiles at selected Israeli targets, but that is hardly going to happen and it would not solve any problems either.”
Note that only Israel is capable of evoking such powerful emotions in Norwegians. Russia killed up to 100 000 people in the first Chechnyan war, and some estimates say up to five million have been killed in Congo over the last ten years. Yet our politicians do not express desires of bombing these countries.
Norway has a very special relationship with Israel and it is right of Mr.Gerstenfeld of the JCPA to alert attention to this fact.
More than half Norwegians want to end Muslim immigration (faithfreedom.org) “Of the respondents 53.7 per cent said that the statement “We should not let more immigrants in Norway “fits very or fairly well with their own opinion. In 2005, when the survey was conducted for the first time, 45.8 percent of respondents said the same thing. While 48.7 per cent believe that the integration is fairly or very poor, there is an increase of 12 percent since 2005… the survey shows that opposition to the use of hijab among women in police uniform is massive in Norway. Over 80 percent of respondents said no to this, and 3.3 percent are “very negative” to the hijab on the police“. I guess they don’t like more immigrants, whether Muslim or not..
Norwegian Diplomat Trille Lilleng equates Israeli Cast Lead operation with Shoah (plancksconstant.org) “Trine Lilleng, a Norwegian diplomat based in Saudi Arabia who sent out e-mails from her Foreign Ministry e-mail account equating Israel’s offensive against Hamas in Gaza with the systematic mass murder of six million Jews by the Nazis. Attached to her email were the images in the video above. This Norwegian idiot asked her recipients to forward the message to others. There were only 1,800 or so Jews in Norway prior to the Nazi invasion of that country. 900 (50% of them) died in the Final Solution.
A teacher in Kuwait has been sacked after holding up Jewish ethics as a role model for students to follow. The teacher, an Arab, was rebuking two quarreling students at the Abdullah Al Nouri elementary school in Kuwait City.
She told the boys they should follow the example of the Jews and respect each other, according to a report published last week in Kuwait’s Alanbanewspaper.
“She stopped them and told them they must respect and love each other in line with our Islamic principles,” reported the paper. “If the Jews respect each other, why can’t we learn from our Prophet…. and respect each other,” the report quoted her.
After the incident, the headmistress asked the teacher to sign a reportsaying she had told the boys that Jews are “better than us” – but the teacher refused to sign the document. According to the newspaper, the Ministry of Education sent her a letter of termination a few days later and has refused to consider her appeal of the matter.
The Swedish press reports that On Monday evening a man was attacked in his apartment in central Norrköping, in eastern Sweden. According to the victim, two hooded perpetrators rang his doorbell and when he opened the door, they beat him on the head with a wine bottle. The man got treatment in hospital.
Swedish blog JIHAD I MALMÖ spoke with the victim, who says this was an antisemitic attack by Arabs. “The first words I heard was ‘Jewish pig’.” He was then beaten 4-5 times with a wine bottle as he lay on the floor.
A noise from a door in the stairwell caused them to run out and down the stairs, while one shouted ‘Yahood‘ (Arabic: Jew). When he came back from the hospital he discovered they had tried to tear out his mezuzah, but had only managed to take out one of the screws.
The police are not interested and the neighbors are afraid to testify, and so the victim is calling for help from anybody who might have seen the men or heard them talk about the attack.
He thinks the only reason he was ambushed is because he’s a pro-Israel blogger (writing under an assumed name).
Tens of thousands of Muslims chanted “Death to America” and “Death to Israel” at the annual Hajj pilgrimage, which the Ayatollah of Iran called “a symbol of spirituality.”
The Arab Ahlul Bayt News Agency reported, “The pilgrims chanted anti-US and anti-Zionist slogans during the ceremony, also attended by the Supreme Leader’s representative for Hajj affairs, Hojatoleslam Ali Qazi-Asgar.
“God is the Greatest“, “Death to Israel” and “Death to America” were among slogans chanted by the masses in unison as they gathered in the Desert of Arafat near Mecca, where more than 2 million Muslims have gathered.
Qazi-Asgar read a message from the Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, the leader of the Islamic Revolution in Iran, who told Muslims to engage in “struggle and resistance against the aggressions of the United States and the Zionist regime.”
Jamarat ritual (stoning the devil)
“Today the Zionist regime is no more the undefeatable monster of 30 years ago,” he said. “The United States and the West are also no more the unquestionable decision-makers of the Middle East that they were two decades ago. Today the arrogant United States, the self-styled commandant of the Islamic region and the real sponsor of the Zionist regime, is bogged down in the quagmire of its own making in Afghanistan.”
We can perceive the “Alliance of Civilizations”, hein? 😯
Imagine what would have happened if in a Christian or Jewish (or Hindu…), participants would have chanted “Death to Saudi Arabia” or “Death to Iran”. The best thing people would have told them would have been “racists” and “warmonger”.
But has this been widely reported? I don’t really have seen it on TV, haven’t listened to this on the radio… So I can safely say that at least here, it hasn’t been reported “widely”… 😡
Selim Panni, claims himself to be ‘Imam-uz-zaman‘, by placing him just behind the prophet of Islam. He terms working women as and women in politics as ‘prostitutes‘ and gives his own ‘Islamic Code‘ for men to marry any number of wives. His interpretation is, “women are created only for sexual pleasure of men and this is their only task”.
Selim Panni projects Jews and Christians as true evils and preaches killing them or raping female members of Jewish and Christian societies as “divine task”. He also teaches his followers to wage any type of offensives on the West.
He believes in theory of hate speech and poisoning the minds of innocent people with his self-made imaginary statements and stories, which are aimed at creating tremendous hatred in the minds of Muslims against Christians and Jews. He calls upon Muslim in waging Jihad [Holy War] against Jews, Christians and the Western world, for the ‘sake of Islamic revival and establishment of HuT rule’.
In Venezuela, remarks like ‘Hitler didn’t finish the job‘ are routineMore than half the Jews in Venezuela left the country since Chavez has been in power, and those who remain say there is official antisemitism in the country.
“I am not even horrified anymore when I see swastikas and anti-Semitic slogans such as ‘Hitler didn’t finish the job’ on walls near my synagogue,” says a former Israeli who lives in Caracas, the capital of Venezuela.
“This is an influence that trickles down from the top – from the government – against the Jews. I know that Chavez is exerting efforts not to appear anti-Semitic to the outside world, and that he welcomed the leaders of the Jewish community, but I haven’t heard of him ever punishing someone for anti-Semitic writings or remarks.”
She would rather her name not be mentioned. “This gets translated and immediately appears on various internet sites. I don’t need trouble,” she says. “A few years ago it was heaven here, who could have believed that it would turn into such a burdensome place?”
She isn’t the only one who feels this way. According to data from the Venezuelan Confederation of Israelite Associations, the number of Jews in Venezuela sharply decreased in the ten years President Hugo Chavez has been in power.
In 2000, there were some 18,000 Jews listed, and today the number stands at a little less than 9,000. The outward flow of people amplified in the last two years, when more than 5,000 Jews left the country, in particular to Miami in the United States.
The city of Ramallah, less than half an hour north of Jerusalem, saw the opening this week of its first five-star luxury hotel, despite Palestinian Authority claims that Israel is strangling the local economy.
The hotel, a franchise of the Swiss-based Movenpick chain, has 171 rooms and suites, an outdoor pool, and a fitness center, and cost $40 million.
The opening was not entirely perfect, as the hotel is not yet set up to provide ice cream. Co-owner Talal Nasreddin spoke to the French news agency AFP and blamed the lack of ice cream on “Israeli procedures at the crossings.” Israel inspects goods imported to Judea and Samaria in order to prevent arms smuggling.
While AFP reported that foreigners have returned to Ramallah “as security has improved,” the article – and the PA officials it quoted – did not note Israel’s role in stemming terrorism in the region and creating initiatives to improve PA employment and ease travel in the region.
