They say once is an accident, twice is a coincidence, but now I really start to wonder about the political astuteness of the King and his Court. One would have thought that after the Trond Ali Linstad affair, the relevant responsibles would do a better job of vetting the prospective recipients so as to not embarrass the Royal House again. To no avail, here they go again and appoint Dr. Fosse to commander of the St. Olavs Order. This is the same Dr. Fosse who allowed armed combatants to take refuge at the Shifa Hospital in Gaza in the Cast Lead operation in December 2008/January 2009. At no point did he protest how the same combatants put the lives of the patients in his care in further damage, but also tolerated that acts of terror and war crimes were planned and executed from this compound.
In the aftermath, he has repeatedly spread lies about the IDFs operations in the Gaza strip and to a very great degree helped to whip up a climate of Jew hatred in Norway.
How can one be awarded with a royal order after something like this?
Your Majesty: I am really disappointed that you do not seem to have advisors who can inform you on the toxic hate Mr. Fosse has contributed to.
