Journalist Tarjei Leer-Salvesen is one of the many who takes a special interest in Israel. He has now written an article on how Norwegian Christian Zionists support Jewish families on the West Bank.
Leer-Salvesen’s article, first published in Fædrelandsvennen under the title “Finances illegal settlement”, is a lengthy investigation of the Karmel institute.
Summary: The Norwegian Karmel institute believes the bible allows Jews to live on the West Bank and in gaza. Hence, Karmel raises funds for Jewish families on the West Bank. Norway’s representative to the Palestinian Territories, Tor Wennesland, states that the settlements constitute the largest obstacle to peace.
The article does not present any objections to the analysis of Tor Wennesland. The fact that Israel was under attack from her neigbors long before there were any settlements, or even before there was any Israel, does not concern Tarjei Leer-Salvesen much.
