One can only wonder whether the Norwegian government will focus on any divesment campaign from Saudi Arabia, for its gender and religious apartheid and draconian legal system called sharia? Ok, that was a rhetorical question. Of course the whale steak eating Norwegian government won’t ever dare to do such a thing, the Jewish state just happens to be an easy target for the fake humanitarians to jump at. KGS
Minister of Finance Sigbjørn Johnsen:
We Norwegians are like drunks looking for their car keys
by the lampost, targeting the Jewish state is easy for us faux humanitarians
Norway’s Ministry of Finance announced that the Norway Oil Fund divested from Africa-Israel Investments and Danya Cebus Ltd. on Monday.The reason given is the companies’ construction in the West Bank.The Norwegian Finance Ministry said, “The ethics council stresses that construction of settlements in the occupied territories violates the decision of the Geneva convention regarding defense of civilians during war time. Several decisions of the UN Security Council and the International Court of Justice have reached the conclusion that construction of Israeli settlements in the Palestinian territories is prohibited.”The Norway Oil Fund has assets worth $450 billion, and held $1.16 million in Africa-Israel shares. Danya Cebus is Africa-Israel’s construction subsidiary.The fund is managed by the Norwegian Central Bank, and divests for ethical reasons. The Norwegian Oil Fund does not invest in companies that manufacture nuclear weapons or weapons of mass destruction, and divests from those that harm the environment and deny workers their rights.
NOTE: One can only wonder what hand the anti-Israel lobby in Norway had in getting this boycott in play?
