NORWAC doctor Erik Fosse was stabbed yesterday while partaking in a rally in Gaza. He appears to have sustained a minor wound.
Unauthorized translation from Aftenposten:
– I take it as a sign of how desperate people are. They have cause to be dissatisfied with the west, he says.
– Why do you think precisely you were attacked?
– Because I was the only blond western present. I understand that people are frustrated with the west. It is an expression of desperation. But of course one cannot stab people for this reason. The man who attacked me was a disturbed person, says Fosse.
He says there was only a small wound, since the knife-blade broke.
Another interpretation might be that Fosse’s attacker was frustrated with Hamas, the genocidal movement Fosse and Gilbert insist the west acknowledge as a legitimate organization and pressures Israel to negotiate with.
When Hamas went to war against Israel through a sustained rocket-barrage which lasted for years, the NORWAC doctors looked the other way. When Israel struck back and Hamas hid behind the unfortunate civilian population, the doctors published a book filled with photographs of maimed children. And now that Fosse is stabbed, it is the west’s fault.
