Maybe Græsvik should come back from holidays and be show solidarity with other recipients of hate messages, this time sponsored through the indirect press support newspapers receive in Norway…
The NS was the Quisling party, the Norwegian equivalent of the NAZI party. So Stavanger Aftenblad is certainly scraping the bottom when they liken the MIFF to a NAZI party. A wee bit aggressive by a newspaper that receives millions in indirect state support, perhaps?
Stavanger Aftenblad links MIFF with NS

MIFF demands an apology
“Pitter” in Aftenbladet write on 19 July that the organization With Israel for Peace (MIFF) is getting more members during the war (in Gaza). “so did the NS too,” he added.
Aftenbladets attempt to link link between MIFF and the NS has provoked disgust far beyond our membership ranks. MIFF is a politically and religiously neutral organization providing information and support to the country of six million Jews in Israel. NS was an organization that cheered the mass murderers who killed six million Jews. Among them was half of the Norwegian-Jewish population, who were sent to extermination camps with the Norwegian state police as willing collaborator.
Hamas advises its people to accuse the Israelis of being Nazis. Accepting that Pitter isn’t necessarily aware of this advice, it is remarkable that he follows a similar reasoning on his own initiative. Israel was not created in time to save the European and Norwegian Jews from the Nazis. But Israel came in time to save close to a million Jews who fled from Arab countries.
It is clearly libelous to claim, directly or by a false analogy that Pitter uses that MIFF is Nazi. For MIFF, which works to educate about the Jewish people’s right to their own state, it is particularly hurtful.
MIFF demands an unreserved apology from the editor of Aftenbladet for this libelous post by Pitter on July 19.
