Torgeir Larsen, Junior Minister (Labor) admits in Aftenposten to Norwegian authorities having closed their eyes to the realities of the Middle East.
This must lead to tangible changes in foreign policy in order to be of real value.
In my op-ed on December the 20th, I state that Norwegian check book diplomacy de facto was supportive of terrorist organizations with significant intolerance directed at Christians, Jews and gays.
We donate 700 Million NOK to the PA annually. What are these sums spent on?
Recently, remuneration for suicide bombers was tripled.
The man killing 30 Israelis in 2002, by now receives 20 000 NOK a month, according to Times of Israel.
ITIC figures show the Palestinians having conducted 25770 terrorist attacks, 147 suicide attacks leading to 1100 dead Israelis and 7500 wounded between 2000 and 2005 alone. Fatah conducted 214 acts of terrorism in 2003-2004 alone.
Gross corruption charges are directed at the PLO; already by 1992 the richest terrorist organization of the world, according to NCL, having assets of two Billion dollars, an annual income of two Billion dollars, having secretly invested 50 billion dollars by 1999.
As late as 1996, Yasser Arafat stated, three years after his Nobel award, that the Palestinian plan still was to get rid of Israel, according to Arutz.
The PLO’s decision on genocide against the Jews has still not been removed.
The pluralist liberal democracy of Israel is the only in the Middle East where gays are protected legally, having annual gay pride parades and religious liberty.
These we do not support.
The government has been far too influenced by Palestinian propaganda, closing their eyes to what we finance.
