Another Piece of The Puzzle.

(by Doodad)

Constantly we wonder why so many hate Israel, the only Democracy in a sea of enemies. Here, an American living in Norway gives us some insight.


"'The quintessential expression of Norwegian anti-Semitism during my time in Norway was an op-ed written by Jostein Gaarder, author of the international bestseller Sophie's World. It appeared on August 11, 2006, in Aftenposten, Norway's newspaper of record. I will quote from it just to give you a flavor of the kind of thing that is considered respectable discourse in Norway. "The state of Israel in its current form is history," wrote Gaarder. "We do not believe in the notion of God's chosen people....To act as God's chosen people is not only stupid and arrogant, but a crime against humanity....We acknowledge...Europe's deep responsibility for the fate of Jews....But the state of Israel...has massacred its own legitimacy....The State of Israel has seen its Soweto.... " Gaarder went on to describe little Jewish girls writing hateful words on bombs to be dropped on civilian populations in Lebanon and Palestine – as if it were Israel that teaches its children to hate and kill. He wrote: "We do not recognize a state founded on anti-humanistic principles and the ruins of an archaic national religion and warrior religion." You might have thought he was talking about Saudi Arabia or Iran, but no; he was talking about Israel. After reading Gaarder's op-ed, one of the leading members of Norway's tiny Jewish community, a writer named Mona Levin, said she had not read anything so disturbing since Mein Kampf. Many ordinary Norwegians agreed. Yet members of the cultural elite lined up to support Gaarder. As far as they were concerned he had struck a blow for truth and virtue."

This is a powerful article and I suggest you read it all for another piece of the puzzle. These morons think they are better, more moral somehow than a people still facing Genocide at the hands of their neighbors. You can imagine what I think of them.

Oh and this is interesting and relevant too, IMO.

"I should add that part of the motivation for all this anti-Semitism is, I think, guilt. The very existence of Jews and of Israel today remind Norwegians of what their countrymen did and didn't do during the war. Norwegians cannot forgive the Jews for having been murdered as part of a horrendous program in which many of their own parents or grandparents played a role. I think it salves the conscience of many Norwegians about their parents' and grandparents' wartime moral choices to be able to tell themselves that, "well, that was long ago, and today Norway is a virtuous bringer of peace, and Israel is a bloodthirsty warmonger."

  1. And now this revelation about an American "friend," a Jew himself:

    "Kissinger in '72: Jews 'self-serving bastards'"

    http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4150018,00.html

    "According to the secret documents released by the State Department, back in 1972 Kissinger wished to put economic and ethical pressure on Israel, calling American Jewish groups lobbying the Nixon White House self-serving "bastards.....According to the transcripts, Kissinger, who is Jewish, replied to Garment: “Is there a more self-serving group of people than the Jewish community?”

    In response, Garment, also Jewish, said: “None in the world.”

    Kissinger responded: “What the hell do they think they are accomplishing? You can’t even tell bastards anything in confidence because they’ll leak it.”"

  2. Norway, like much of the rest of the west, has been swayed by decades of Arab propaganda that portrays Arab aggression as righteous "resistance" and Jewish self-defense as aggression.

    They've turned history inside-out and upside-down.

    After 1,300 hundred years of second and third class status (dhimmitude) under the boot of Islamic imperialism, the moment that the Jewish people of the Middle East gain their freedom they are automatically turned into the "oppressors" of the "indigenous" population.

    Call it "the big lie," if you will.

  3. Big lie for sure if you look at the history of it all from the Nazis, through the Soviets and their tutoring of the Arabs/Palestinians to the left in general. Totally nefarious.

  11. It has been said, by some people, that the current genocidal anti-Jewish anti-Israeli racism of European people is a result of guilt that European people feel for their parents and grandparents having, in some cases, murdered, and in other cases, having allowed to be murdered, almost all of the Jewish people in Europe approximately seventy years ago.

    However, the current genocidal anti-Jewish anti-Israeli racism of European people is not a result of guilt that Europeans feel. Most European people don't feel guilt for their parents and grandparents, and the parents and grandparents of their fellow members of the general ethnic group (ethnically European people) of which they are members, having, in some cases, murdered, and in other cases, having allowed to be murdered, almost all of the Jewish people in Europe approximately seventy years ago. The current genocidal anti-Jewish anti-Israeli racism of European people (and, involved with that, the current so-called "Multi-Culturalist" glorification of, and excusing of, Muslims - a huge religious group whose members are, to various degrees, adherents of a supremacist, imperialist, genocidally anti-Jewish, racist religious and political ideology, Islam, and who European people view as being a "non-white" minority ethnic group who European people want to view as being persecuted by the Jewish people) is a result of European people feeling *humiliation* for their parents and grandparents, and the parents and grandparents of their fellow members of the ethnic group (ethnically European people) of which they are members, in some cases, having murdered, and in other cases, having allowed to be murdered, almost all of the Jewish people in Europe being shown to themselves and to the whole world.

    As a result of, and as part of, the anti-Jewish racism that is a deeply engrained part of the culture of culturally Christian-European - Christian and post-Christian - societies, very many culturally Christian European - Christian and post-Christian - people hold the perverse racist self-identity wrong view: "The Jews are Guilty. Therein, we are (I am) Innocent. The Jews are Evil. Therein, we are (I am) Good."

    Any challenging of the holding of that perverse racist self-identity wrong view feels unpleasant to people who hold that perverse racist self-identity wrong view, and causes people who hold that perverse racist self-identity wrong view to feel resentment and hate toward the people whose existence challenges the holding of that perverse racist self-identity wrong view.
