What can I say? Bless? Its perhaps the worst insult in the English language? Oh, bless (and then you have squeeze your face into a very very sad and concerned look, like you would if you have been told that an acquaintance accidentally released a particularly smelly fart in an audience with the Queen)
Perhaps Norwegian former Red Cross aid workers should review their past history on Israel and Jews. So far, they have been completely mum on the issue of Norwegian Jihadists fighting in Syria, whereas they were terribly quick in demanding a war criminal inquiry of Norwegian Jews who have served with the IDF.
Somebody needs to cut the lifeline to the humanitarian aid industry, instead of relieving suffering, they have prolonged it.
In particular, somebody should urgently teach so called aid workers the importance of learning about cultures and religions before they shoot off their mouths in public, this man has clearly lost the plot a long while ago and has fallen into the familiar pattern of Lutheran antisemitic attitudes. Or in the very least they should be informed that under Israeli administration, the number of Palestinians has steadily grown and enjoy much better quality of life than many other peoples in the Middle East. There are no extermination camps for Palestinians and there in no holocaust against Palestinians, but on the other hand there is a pronounced policy of both the Hamas and the Fatah to eradicate the Jewish nation (just check their charters if you dare)

How much abuse can you see before you protest ?
I have been accused of being a Palestinian patriot , yes, that’s right, but I’m also Israel – patriot . I want peace and freedom for both parties.

Red Cross worker , it is expected that one should be neutral . One should not accuse , to act and not express their opinions about who is right and who is wrong . After a short time in the Middle East , I had to admit that I was completely wrong track in terms of my perception of conflict. If the Jews really are God’s chosen people , I expect actually more of them than of others – especially what humanity and compassion concern . It’s not in my interest to engage in propaganda , but I ‘ll tell you what I have experienced – what I know is true. What people around me may think or say is not crucial for me. The humanitarian aspect – it is best for people in need means far more. My first three years in Israel / Palestine was far tougher than seven years of civil war -torn Somalia , including a dramatic kidnapping. Seeing people get to the point humiliated and belittled in their daily lives , is painful and very difficult to accept.
I ACCEPT nor the policies and actions undertaken by the extremist groups on any of the pages, but of a democracy and a well-developed nation like Israel , I expect more than those who are oppressed . The imbalance between these two parties is udiskutabel.Det is no doubt that Israelis feel traumatized by the conflict . They live with the constant fear of being hit by a suicide bomber or uncontrolled missiles. This is of course unacceptable and horrible. Let me refer to what the Israeli ambassador in Eritrea said to me. ” Both sides suffer , but there is no doubt that Palestinians suffer far more than the Israelis .” I refer again to the imbalance.
THE HOLOCAUST AND the inhuman suffering of the Jews have been subjected to over the years have influenced attitudes through generations is only natural and expected. But we can not accept that Israel commit similar offenses against Palestinians because of that. I have been accused of being a Palestinian patriot , yes, that’s right, but I’m also Israel – patriot . I want peace and freedom for both parties. I had in my young mind to become a priest – it was not so. Theological questions will therefore be up to the theologians to consider. But if the Jews really are God’s chosen people , it is high time that they show this. My God is merciful .
