Jerusalem in NRK radio news

Why is Jerusalem again at breaking point? This was the question Mideast expert Hilde Henriksen Waage received Dagsnytt eighteen Thursday, November 6th. The question has a background in terrorist attacks carried out by Palestinians in Jerusalem recently, and that has cost several people their lives, including a three months old baby girl. Besides a long way to justify Palestinian terrorists, explained Waage that the summer’s Gaza war began in Jerusalem. It began, according Waage, because Jews set fire to a Palestinian teenager.

This statement by Henriksen Waage is a perfectly super example of one of the most effective propaganda tools; half-truths. Half Truths are a far more effective manipulation tools than pure lies. This is because half truths must be counteracted by first acknowledging the half-truth, and then explain the whole truth. A lie on the other hand can only be swept off on facts.

-The Whole war in Gaza began  in Jerusalem. And I was there last summer and landed in the Jewish extremists lit fire to a Palestinian fifteen years old. And thus so were the riots started, and the Israeli army just stood in the city. And after that I think that anger and frustration has only accelerated and increased.

It is true that the Jews set fire to 16 year old Mohammed Abu Khdeir July 2 this year, a gruesome indefensible act. Henriksen Waage highlighted this event, but failed to mention the occasion for it in Dagsnytt eighteen. one had in fact a few days ahead found the three Jewish teenage boys Gil-ad Sha’ar (16), Naftali Frankel (16) and Eyal Yifrach (19) killed and kicking in a ditch near Hebron. These had two weeks earlier been kidnapped by Hamas.

The 29-year-old man and two 17-year-olds Appeared before Petah Tikva Magistrates court in Jerusalem on Monday and were ordered to be held until Friday. The police said the but had ADMITTED “a racist, nationalist motive”, and had the carried out the attack in response to the killing of Eyal Yifrach, 19, and Gil-ad Sha’ar and Naftali Frankel, bothering 16-whose bodies were discovered on 30 June in a shallow excavation near Hebron.

The case is therefore the three Jewish teenage boys kidnapped and killed, and in revenge killed a Palestinian teenager. What happens in the aftermath of these heinous acts, respectively Jewish and Arab society, says a lot about their respective social civilization degree and views on human dignity.
The Jewish murderers were met with condemnation of their own, both from a political and from religious quarters.
The perpetrators were caught and brought to trial within fourteen days. It turns out that the two youngest of them, considered as social outcasts and can be unpredictable. In the Israeli newspaper Haaretz described the one source that “are not Functioning individuals.”

The two Minors who have confessed involvement in the killing ‘are not Functioning individuals,’ a source says.

The Palestinian murderers were kept hidden in their neighborhood, so it was three months before they were found. More in Palestinian society was involved in the kidnapping and murder of the three Jewish teenage boys. Everything was actually carefully planned with family and friends.
When Israeli police arrested the two Hamas murderers, they began to shoot and they were even killed during the firefight. It is not known whether the two are now being honored for their terror in the Palestinian society. If it is so, then this is nothing new.

Hilde Henriksen Waage said thus nothing about the three Jewish boys who were kidnapped and killed in summer. Although the case made headlines internationally,  Henriksen Waage chose to start the story only when the Jews returned the killings.

The Broadcasting Council ruled in August that NRK is not good at separating fact from propaganda. Broadcasting Council also concluded that

NRK failed to sufficiently put a critical spotlight on Hamas’ role in the conflict.

It had been hoped that our license-funded media company took this criticism ad notam. Unfortunately, we got an example of the opposite Thursday night when Hilde Henriksen Waage served radio listeners half truths about extreme Jews, while she failed to mention Hamas’s role in the prelude to why it caught fire in Jerusalem in the summer.

However, fewer and fewer are inclined to believe Hilde Henriksen Waage and NRK stories from the Middle East. The stories will lose credibility in line with the new Norway that takes form, for we too shall get to know people who love death more than life.

    Middle East Expert Waage? More of a poor wag than reality. Of course to be Israeli/Jew hating is enough to classify any person as an expect. we expect nothing less.
