After Gro Holm’s scandalous canard about how Jews control the US media, other Norwegians now feel its safe to parrot her shameful opinion. Now, a Dr. Mohammad Usman Rana – a high profile participant in the Norwegian public discourse, tweets his support. Incidentally, it is not the first time I see doctors, who have sworn the Hippocrates oath, feel it is correct and appropriate to lose sight of their fundamental obligation to prevent hatred, use derogatory remarks about other people, based on religion, opinions, ethnicity. Still we are not quite at the Belgian level of anti-Semitic hate, but we are certainly on the slippery slope downhill.
First the NRK, who typically refuses to consider any wrong doing on their part (they like to convince us that Norwegian journalists are the most ethical and unbiased in the world), present this awful charge, then the pundits, the opinion makers, the esteemed members of the medical profession…. who can fault the “ordinary guy” in the street who then feels he has received a license for outright anti-Semitic drivel.
Mohammad Usman Rana tweeted:
NRK’s Gro Holm gave a very honest rendering of the Israel lobby’s clammy grip on US opinion, media, politics.
Does the Norwegian Medical Association have a disciplinary board? Wouldn’t this be just the case to consider for disgraceful professional conduct?
