The Norwegian Parliamentary campaign has already started, with general elections scheduled for September 2017. Pollsters are unable to predict who is in the better position, with many wishing it would be Mr. Store and his brand of capitalist socialism, where he gets to earn filthy amounts of money, while making sure that the private initiative would be left gasping for air under his army of ham-fisted bureaucrats.
So apparently, in a bid to secure the far left vote that the Labour Party is in need of in order to get its project off the ground, This automatically translates into efforts to boycott Israel but not, interestingly any concerns for the millions of Syrians who suffer an awful fate just a mere kilometers from my house. So the desire to boycott Israel, under the pretence that the Israeli gasfields in the Mediterranean somehow are under international dispute, is mainly a way to expressing good old anti-Semitism. This is the way of the Labour party. Do not be fooled.

Dangerous signal from Labor
In the coalition government, under Labour leadership, did Ola Borten Moe (Sp) a commendable effort to pave the way for Norwegian-Israeli offshore cooperation. As oil and energy minister was Gone Moe several times in Israel, and he called for increasing cooperation between Israel and Norway “on almost every field of society.”
Today Palestine Committee and “Coordination Committee for academic and cultural boycott of Israel” invited to a point marking in front of the Foreign Ministry. They say “no to research and industrial collaboration” with Israel. Stein Gulbrandsen, Director of Transport and Communications / Technical Fagforbundet, is one of the appellant. They object in particular to the delegation journey Petroleum and Energy Tord Lien ushers in Israel on September 11.
So far, all that one could wait. It is no news that organizations who want full boycott of Israel, and supporting policies that will make the world’s only Jewish state to disappear, oppose a government delegation seeking cooperation.
But there is also another appellant on a dot, parliament Truls Wickholm of Labor.
Have Ap turned in sight when it comes to Norwegian-Israeli energy cooperation? Is there which was ok in government become problematic in opposition? As recently as last year, a proposal to boycott Israel rejected Labor’s national convention.
There is obviously a need for party leader Jonas Gahr Støre staking out a clear course. When speaking morality, reason, marketing and finance to intensify cooperation, as the Government does.
