Norway Funds the blood libel

Posted by avideditor on January 3, 2010


FM Store: What’s wrong with my praising
a book the Norwegian government funded?
The present Norwegian government is beyond contempt, it has crossed over from being just (typically) overly critical of Israel, into being openly hostile of Israel and anti-Semitic as well. The Norwegian government funded a project by Gilbert and Fosse, which involved their traveling to Gaza in order to cover the war between Israel and Hamas,  and then publish a book about their experiences.
The Tundra Tabloids believes that its entirely possible that they (Gilbert, Fosse and the Norwegian government) saw a chance to circumvent the Israeli ban on the medias coverage on the war in Gaza, and travel there under the guise of offering aid to the civilian population, but with the main intention to act as conduits for Hamas propaganda.

Its a fact that they became the de facto ‘mouthpiece’ for the Hamas during the war, dishing up one false story after another. Heres the video once again of Mads Gilbert and his Arab helper in an arranged scene for the CNN camera, where he makes up dialogue as his colleague gives fake heart compressions to an already dead, or even healthy boy faking it for the camera.

It’s a sad state of affairs no matter how you look at it. If the boy was indeed dead, it’s a tragedy, but it also shows the lengths at which these (supposedly) medical professionals are willing to throw their proffessionalism out the window, in order to present Israel in the worst light possible. This also shows the present Norwegian governments willingness to be complicit in the spreading of blood libels against the Jewish state of Israel. KGS

Norwegian minister under fire for praise of Cast Lead book

The Norwegian foreign minister’s praise for a controversial book accusing Israeli troops of perpetrating a ‘monstrous, systematically implemented and comprehensive massacre’ in Gaza aroused harsh criticism yesterday from Israeli officials and Jewish organizations.
Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon told Haaretz that the book being endorsed by Jonas Gahr Store is ‘outrageous and borders on incitement made up of fabrication and lies.’
‘It is problematic that a representative of a democratic government is praising such things,’ Ayalon added.
The book in question is called ‘Eyes in Gaza,’ written by Mads Gilbert and Erik Fosse after their stay in the Strip during Operation Cast Lead last year.
Dr. Moshe Kantor, president of the European Jewish Congress, said he was ‘deeply disappointed’ by Store’s endorsement of ‘slanted and baseless libel.’ ‘Norway, which I hope will continue to live far away from terrorism, needs to know that such statements feed and assist the terrorists,’ Kantor said.
‘As can be recalled, journalists and reporters were not allowed into Gaza,’ a spokesperson for the Norwegian foreign ministry said when asked about the back-cover praises which Store wrote for the highly controversial book.
‘When war rages, civilians are made mute,’ Store wrote, adding that Fosse and Gilbert ‘told of what they saw. It was not their duty, but their responsibility. When military might fences out all voices, the few which remain become extra strong and important.’
The two celebrity physicians and political activists from the Norwegian far-left frequently visit the Gaza Strip and the West Bank as part of the government-funded medical nonprofit NORWAC, and are among Norway’s fiercest critics of Israel.
Gilbert defended the book to Haaretz as ‘accurate testimony.’ ‘It turned out to be true. There was a massacre. It was no mistake, but obviously a planned, systematically implemented military operation of the Israeli army,’ Gilbert and Fosse wrote, describing an incident in which they said IDF forces put a family into a house ‘only to bomb the house the following day, full of people.’
The IDF spokesperson said no families had been targeted during Operation Cast Lead.
Another passage in the account by the two doctors reads: ‘The Israelis knew well what they were doing. The purpose was to collectively punish the entire Palestinian population of Gaza [with] a merciless slaughter of women and children, old and young, men and women.’
Cecilie Willoch, press officer for the Norwegian foreign ministry said that Store ‘expressed his personal appreciation of the medical and humanitarian work of Drs. Gilbert and Fosse in Gaza. The lack of access for the media made [these] important for international media.’ She added that Store has ‘underlined’ the fact that Gilbert and Fosse ‘only represent one voice’ of what took place.

Earlier this year Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman accused Norway of ‘promoting anti-Semitism’ and pursuing a ‘hostile policy’ toward Israel.

Mass Murder Fidel Castro supports Norwegian academy on Nobel prize for Obama

Posted by avideditor on October 10, 2009

“Former Cuban leader Fidel Castro praised the awarding of the Nobel Peace Prize to US President Barack Obama, saying it was “a positive measure” that was more a criticism of past US policies than a recognition of Obama’s accomplishments.” HT keefe

Norwegian doctor Mads Gilbert in Gaza supported 9/11 terror attack

Posted by avideditor on January 8, 2009

It just shows how sick the MSM is, by in parading Mads Gilbert out without giving his context. 

From Oleh Girl

Israeli watchdog group NGO Monitor has noted that one of the foreign media’s favorite Gaza-based interviewees, Norwegian physician Mads Gilbert, is a man with an extremist political past.

Gilbert has been quoted widely, including in a Times of London article where he told friends by SMS, “We are wading in death, blood and amputees. Many children. A pregnant woman. I have never experienced anything so terrible.”

Gilbert also used a BBC interview from Gaza’s Shifa Hospital to cite casualty statistics that he said proved the IDF was deliberately targeting civilians.

According to NGO Monitor, however, Gilbert’s past is indicative of “ideological extremism,” such as when he expressed support for the September 11 attacks on the United States in a 2001 interview in Norway’s Dagbladet newspaper.

In the interview, he argued that “the oppressed also have a moral right to attack the USA with any weapon they can come up with,” adding specifically that he supported the terror attack “within the context which I have mentioned.”

Gilbert was also a candidate for local government in 2007 for the Norwegian Red Party, an outgrowth of the radical Norwegian Workers’ Communist Party.

An Israeli government official also told the Post that “there is no way [Gilbert] could have personal access to the kind of statistics he cited. He got them from the Gaza Health Ministry, which is controlled by Hamas. That raises the question: To what extent is he a willing or unwilling mouthpiece for Hamas?”
