Norway’s Ambassador to Israel Defends Palestinian Terror After Oslo Massacre

The main activity at the Utoya Island Meeting were mock “Break the Israel blockade” games. Labour Youth League summer camp at Utøya got the Labour Party’s young hopefuls a visit by Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Store.

If you thought that the massacre in Oslo would soften Norwegian hearts toward Israel you would be mistaken. Norway’s Ambassador to Israel told reporters that Norwegians consider “the occupation” to be the cause of the terror against Israel. He went on to say the terror attacks will not likely change a lot of hearts in Oslo concerning Israel.
The JTA reported:

Norway’s Ambassador to Israel drew distinctions between the Oslo and Utoya massacres and Palestinian terrorism.

Svein Sevje said in an Israeli newspaper interview Tuesday that while the Norwergian bomb and gun rampages that killed 76 people and Palestinian attacks should both be considered morally unacceptable, he wanted to “outline the similarity and the difference in the two cases.”

Palestinians, the ambassador told Maariv, “are doing this because of a defined goal that is related to the Israeli occupation. There are elements of revenge against Israel and hatred of Israel. To this you can add the religious element to their actions.”

“In the case of the terror attack in Norway, the murderer had an ideology that says that Norway, particularly the Labor Party, is forgoing Norwegian culture,” Sevje said, referring to suspect Anders Breivik, a Christian nativist who is opently anti-Islam and anti-immigration.

Unlike European Union states, Norway has engaged Hamas and often been fiercely critical of Israel, to Jerusalem’s dismay.

While Sevje voiced sympathy for Israeli terror victims, having experienced “the inferno” of such attacks during his posting, he saw little chance of Norway reviewing its Middle East policies.

“We Norwegians consider the occupation to be the cause of the terror against Israel,” he said. “Those who believe this will not change their mind because of the attack in Oslo.”

He added, “Can Israel and the Palestinians solve the problems without Hamas? I don’t think so.”

    Terrorism is hard, especially when people can’t define the terrorists.

    He might as well have said “We Norwegians believe in pink, puffy unicorns with bells”. Hey Sevje, you need a reality check.

    The Israeli government needs to send this POS packing.

  • jony101

    the massacre they suffer was no big deal according to there way of thinking, eventually the muslims in norway will show them what a true massacre is.
    This massacre they suffered will hopefully wake them up to the real threat. They need to start arming there police officers and maybe buy a helicopter so they can get there swat teams to a flashpoint quicker.
    I disagree that both type of acts are different, the palestenians and this norwegian terrorist where both trying to get a political point across. The only thing I learn today is that norwegians seem to hate jews just like the rest of europe does.

    Should worry more about the Islamic occupation of Europe than what Jews do in their rightful homeland. Those who curse Israel will themselves be cursed.

  • dunce

    Facts are stubborn things. Jews have lived in Norway for generations and never caused any problems, the muslims only recently invaded their country and are only a problem. The jews in Israel have never done anything to Norwegians yet they go out of their way to make diplomatic trouble for a tiny country far away from them. It is just a matter of time with a growing cancer that is the muslim religion/ political system until their own culture is destroyed as the koran commands muslims to do. Open borders is a form of cultural suicide.

    I have long thought the best strategy for fighting the war on Terror is to withdraw from the middle east and declare war on Norway . Norway is participating in a stealth genocide against the jews. The Nobel corporation through its military subsidiaries is the leading arms supplier to Iran of sophisticatred weaponry. Norway is profiting off an islamic nuclear arms race fueled by religious intolerance. They are contantly elevating to high moral stature people who advance immoral policies marching towards a wipe out of the jewish people …Stealth anti semites like Jimmy Carter and Barak Obama and open terrorists like Arrafat getting bogus “peace” awards. Their leader during WW2 Lord Quising was a singificant Kapo enabler of the Nazi movement in Scandanavia. Today Norway stands small again as a big Quisling coward enabling the Islamo nazi powers to push the world into another holocaust.

    [quote]“We Norwegians consider the occupation to be the cause of the terror against Israel,” he said. “Those who believe this will not change their mind because of the attack in Oslo.”[/quote]

    Just to point out the glaringly obvious, Israel was subjected to Arab terrorism prior to 1967, even prior to Israel’s nationhood in 1948, the “Yishuv” was under Arab attack!

    But those are just facts, “Those who believe this (“..the occupation to be the cause of the terror against Israel..”) will not change their mind because of the attack in Oslo.”

    And that’s why we say “stupid should hurt”!

    What to expect from a country, where politicians can tell women in the country that, if they don’t want to get raped by mohammedans, they have to adapt to mohammedan “culture”?

    This is why I say these days “I don’t see 80+ dead children. I see 80+ enemies killed in action.”

    Breivik didn’t kill “innocent children”. None of these kids were innocent. They were willingly part of a Jew-hating alliance. They went there because they enjoyed it. They enjoyed the socialist bullshit and the Jew-hating nonsense. I wonder how many of them took the “protocols of the elders of Zion” for a fact and how many subscribed to the islamo-fascist propaganda about Israel. Going by what I’ve seen so far I have to say: all of them.

    Anders Behring Breivik exterminated the modern Hitler Youth and I have a hard time feeling sorry for that.

    It’s a shape of things to come.

    You think I’m out of line with this?

    You should see how violent and extreme the left wing youth is in Europe and how easy it is to mobilize them for totalitarian ideas and against freedom. They are the willing stormtroopers of islamo-fascism and socialism. They are the modern Sturmabteilung. Some of their leaders in Germany are telling them to kill police officers and soldiers and throughout the EU they are encouraged to violate the law by their leaders.

    Similar “children”, at the last anti-CASTOR protest in Germany, firebombed a police APC with the intent to kill the officers inside. During another protest in Germany similar “children” threw self-made chemical bombs at police officers with the intent to kill and harm. These bombs caused some significant issues for several officers on the ground.

    A few years ago, “children” like these marched in step with mohammedan hamas and fatah supporters in all large European cities and chanted “Death to Israel!” “Boycott Israel!” and “Hamas! Hamas! Gas the Jews!”

    And you want me to feel sorry for them? You want me to mourn and be sad and condemn the shooter?


    This is the shape of things to come. This was the first real strike back. Others will follow. It is inevitable. We are at war. A war declared upon us by our politicians, our so called leaders.

    The ultimate result is that we have 80+ less “boycott Israel” and “death to Israel” screamers. 80+ less pro-sharia, pro-oppression, anti-Jew, anti-freedom stormtroopers. They wanted to kill or support the killing of Jews? Well, now they got killed themselves. Tough luck.

    It also reminds me of what’s going on in Germany. Murder and assault against Germans by “immigrants” is pretty common these days. It’s happening almost on a daily basis. The media is silent about it, the politicians don’t care, and the stormtroopers are happy (because everything German is evil to them.) Then, there was a case where a crazed Russo-German assaulted a mohammedan woman in court and killed her. The reactions by media, politicians, stormtroopers AND mohammedan countries was extreme. Islamophobia everywhere, xenophobia everywhere, etc. Interesting, no? Mohammedans can kill and rape dozens of Germans per year and nobody cares, but touch one mohammedan and everyone goes bonkers.

    And even if Breivik was really Christian (which doesn’t work out, you know, Christians don’t go around killing people, that Jesus guy, who’s the central figure in Christianity, forbade it), then we’re still at:

    1 “Christian” terror attack VS almost 17,500 mohammedan terror attacks since 9-11.

    Hmm… any leftist care to comment on that one?

    Also explain this to me: the people being all teary eyed over Norway, blaming the Right wing, screaming about racism, islamophobia and “right wing populism” are the same people who support the Holocaust of unborn children (worldwide number of abortions: 42 million per year; in the EU more than 4 million, that’s the entire population of Austria exterminated once every two years), who support groups and organizations hell bent on killing all Jews. The hypocrisy of the Left wing knows no limits.

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    He added, “Can Israel and the Palestinians solve the problems without Hamas? I don’t think so.”

    They sure as hell won’t solve their problems with Hamas.

  • xkaydet65

    This is as egregious a comment as the one made by Beck. His argument seems to be that the Palestinians have a gripe and that makes their terror understandable. Well Breivk had a gripe that to him legitimized his terror.The israelis don’t target school kids.Hamas and Breivik do,Nuff said.

  • gastorgrab

    If the ends justify the means, does it really matter what the left says about Brevik? (“Christian Right-Wing extremist”)

    Terror is a means to an end. It’s either justifiable, or it isn’t.

    Glenn Beck is an example of the kind of shame and remourse descent moral germanic people feel towards the jews for the evil suffered at our hands during the 3rd Reich. He is such a staunch supporter of Israel Beck is near ready to repatriate to Jerusalem and live on a Kibbutz. The Norwegian do not have any cultural shame for their deep and sinister collaborations with Adolph Hitler. Once again they culture a staunch alliance with Aryan ( Iran ) supremacists out to wipe jews off the map. …

    O/T regarding anti-Semitism, but tied to the Norway attacks: Have you seen Ann Barnhardt’s post for today at her site (

    The title is “Manifesto as Fake as Obama’s Birth Certificate” (Posted by Ann Barnhardt – July 26, AD 2011 10:35 AM MST)

    She’s considering it odd that this guy cut-and-pasted his “manifesto” from other sources rather than blathering on in his own words (which is what “the crazies” typically do– rant on and on, obviously speaking in “their own voice”, and not borrowing from someone else’s material).

    Then skip down to her entry “Several Things” (Posted by Ann Barnhardt – July 25, AD 2011 11:23 AM MST)

    See her points 2) and 3) about the text of Breivik’s Facebook page being changed from Norwegian to English, and the terms “Christian” and “Conservative” being added — AFTER the attacks. She brings up the possibility of a “false flag” operation.

    I know nuttin’ from nuttin’ about this. It’s just — interesting. It may be worth keeping an open mind about what we think we know (or what we’re being persuaded we know), versus what really happened.

    That Andreas guy was right; this was a hippie Hitler youth camp where anti-Semitism is couched in flower-power. I knew something was up as soon as one of the survivors said he thought it was an exercise to demonstrate what life was like in Gaza. There’s a reason why nobody is telling you what those kids were being taught because it would diminish the sympathy. Now I’m not excusing the shooter. I would never advocate this kind of murder against a Klan summer camp either. But hearing this after Israel’s embassy in Oslo lowered its flag to half-mast disgusts me. These people believe the only real evil in the world is Israel. Fifty bucks says the hottest rumor right now in Norway is that Breivik was a Mossad agent.

    Isn’t it ironic that the Nobel Peace prize is named for the man who invented dynamite? How many people have been killed by this destructive force.

    Also, how ironic that the mass killer was neither a Jew nor a Muslim, but a native born son.

    It is also noteworthy that the Norwegians produced some of the most fanatic SS cadres, who fought in the defense of Berlin even as the Third Reich crumbled and native born Germans were deserting in mass.
    Norway better start cleaning up its own dirty laundry and stop obsessing with Israel and the Jews.

    I think it’s kind of funny how you people seem to think the Norwegian Labour Party is “leftist”, and that Norwegians are somehow united in hate against the Jews and Israel. The Labour Party is pretty stuck in the middle between left and right, and most of us don’t give a flying **** about anything going on in the Middle East. Yes, we have camps supporting both sides, but they’re in rank minority.
    Assumptions and politically biased hearsay is awesome.

  • Vargfar

    I also think it’s kind of funny how it’s claimed that the ambassador is “defending palestinian terror”. Might just be my craziness talking, but it appears to me that he is more or less neutrally stating the reason for the terrorist actions. Nowhere in his statements can I see anything resembling support. Lack of condemnation does not equal support. This is simply someone pointing out the reason for stuff that happens in order to understand the motivation. Because if you want to resolve an issue, it helps to keep up communication with both sides.

    Terrorism was an issue for Israel between 1948 and 1967, when the “occupation” of Gaza and the “West Bank (Judea and Samaria),” was under the boot-heel of Egypt and Jordan respectively! Nothing has changed since 1948, when the objective of the Arab League was the eradication of the State of Israel. Article 7 of the Hamas Charter and the “10 Point Program of the PLO” still call for the genocide of the Jews, or “driving them into the sea.” Neither of these documents has been revoked as a prerequisite to the establishment of a Palestinian state existing in peace alongside Israel. The State of Israel maintains a robust national defense establishment for necessary and valid reasons.

    Now, the blond-haired, blue-eyed Aryan youth of Norway, the grandchildren of those who cooperated with the World War II Nazi occupation of Norway, and gave us the name “Quisling,” as synonymous with the word “traitor,” have allied themselves with international terrorism and against the civilized world.

    It is often said that you reap what you sow and those who foment hatred and bigotry against others, will be among their victims. Norway should have not had to suffer this outrage, but in a moral sense, this is a case of “the chickens coming home to roost!” Those who reap the wind, will inherit the whirlwind.

    As another commenter noted, paraphrasing the late Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir, “When Norwegians love their children more than they hate Jews, they will know peace.” Hopefully, the people of Norway will learn from this and their past World War II experiences and learn that the “blowback” of fomenting of hatred and bigotry is becoming one of their victims.

    Quran Sura 5:
    20 both the Jews and the Christians say: “we are the sons of Allah, and his beloved.” say: “why then doth he punish you for your sins? nay, ye are but men,– of the men he hath created: he forgiveth whom he pleaseth. and he punisheth whom he pleaseth: and to Allah belongeth the dominion of the heavens and the earth, and all that is between: and unto him is the final goal of all.”
    21 O people of the book! now hath come unto you, making things clear unto you, our apostle, after the break in the series of our apostles, lest ye should say: “there came unto us no bringer of glad tidings and no warner from evil”: but now hath come unto you a bringer of glad tidings and a warner from evil. and Allah hath power over all things.
    22 remember Moses said to his people: “O my people! call in remembrance the favor of Allah unto you, when he produced prophets among you, made you kings, and gave you what he had not given to any other among the peoples.”
    23 “O my people! enter the holy land which Allah hath assigned unto you, and turn not back ignominiously, for then will ye be overthrown, to your own ruin.”

    Muslims try to destroy Israel, and demand areas of Israel’s land for themselves. Muslims say that some areas of Israel belong to the Palestinians. The Quran declares that Allah has given the land of Israel for Jews, which is their holy land.

    The Muslims fight against the announcement of the Quran when try to destroy Israel and take over the land of Israel. The Palestinian issue and the Middle East problems would be solved if the Muslims would believe the Quran and to allow the Israelis to live in their own land, which belongs to them. Of course, it would be best if they would believe in the Lord Jesus and the Bible, because, then they really know to whom the land of Israel belongs to. The rich Arab countries could re-colonize the Palestinian Arabs, and to give them a good home and a livelihood, because they can afford to it by many billions of oil incomes. The Arabs don’t want to do this, but they want to keep Palestinian Arabs in misery as well as a shield and an excuse against Israel.

    The land of Israel is the target of ongoing Arab terrorism. Some of the attacks carried out through Palestine. That’s why Israel has to keep tight control for Palestinian Arabs. The problem would be eliminated if the Arabs would believe the Quran, which says that Allah granted the land of Israel to the Jews. Resettlement of the Palestinian Arabs back to the various Arab countries would be the solution, where they are originally from. This would be very easy to organize for Arab multi-millionaires.
