Norway is the first western state to jump into bed with the terrorist led Palestinian Authority, with their stupidly shortsighted recognition of its “unity government”. It’s just my opinion but something tells me that Finland is jealous over the recent Norwegian move, already regretting that EU policy towards the Palestinians is hindered by its role as being 1/4 of the “Quartet.”
“Norwegian Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Stoere said Saturday hat the new PA government is “taking steps toward complying with international demands…Norway will thus on this basis re-establish political and economic relations with the Palestinian government,” he said. “We’ve resumed normal political relations.”
This is all a blatant lie, Hamas refuses to recognize Israel, and have repeatedly stated that their goals are to destroy Israel and replace it with an Islamic state. Israel expects the world to reject the Hamas-Fatah government as long as it refuses to accept all of the Quartet’s demands. Recognition of Israel, renounce violence and recognition of all previously signed agreements.
Shame on Norway. I wonder if Norway will now recognize the Basque Separatists as well? More here. *L* KGS
