Nr. 217: Silly clown talk of Espen Ottosen, Vebjørn Selbakk and Knut Arild Hareide!

Nr. 217:

Silly clown talk of Espen Ottosen, Vebjørn Selbakk and Knut Arild Hareide!

Now it is up to Israel again, the various tragedies that are related to Israel. There is a post that Per Haakonsen held in Sarpsborg KRF which was very good and comprehensive. I believe that Haakonsen has many good points that should and will be discussed, not only engage in Foxhole answers and feel offended! Labour Youth League youth Eskil Pedersen makes me nauseous and seems extremely self-centered!

AUF has spoken positively about Israel's enemies and the next day's Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Støre to visit and has also been photographed with a poster which reads "Boycott Israel".
Haakonsen does not rule out that the whole may be a coincidence, but believes it is not unreasonable to think that God may have had a hand in what happened. This is not some crazy thoughts and when Vebjørn Selbakk and Knut Arild Hareide stamps this as galmanns talk, because it shows how little sense, discernment and insight, and lack of discernment regarding the biblical historical facts. The many really about something they have not the slightest thing, or understanding. It would be better if they kept silent about the things they do not know.
People in this community are small pieces of the great relationship and that's how we like it or not, we are guided by good and evil thoughts and effort. The day before 22 July was the youth of Utøya large demonstration of banner: Boycott Israel! The journalists were present and photographed Jonas Gahr Støre at the head of this train and they also wrote that it was a pure orgy with Israel this evening. What does that tell us? Yes, our politicians engaged young people in death, it is their fault that this happened indirectly, Stoltenberg and the gang, which encourages young people to engage in this game to God Almighty and his own people and everything to do with Christianity. In Norway, most of the Christian values ​​toned down, you should sing: my cow, I thank you in kindergarten, etc., etc.

There is no doubt about how we treat the Jews will turn back on ourselves. Jesus said that even if one has done to my smallest has done for him and Israel is God's eye stones and trying to lift and do something with and against Israel will forløfte themselves. That the Gentiles, as Eskil Pedersen and other socialists feels offended by such thoughts do I not so closely, they are blinded in their hatred of God and what they stand for. But that so-called Christian leaders who mentioned statements as forward certain about something they obviously do not have nice and sense of, it says I report. It is obvious that there is a connection between how we treat the Jews and what we feel and experience in our lives, both personally and as a state.

What is God's punishment?

Actually, it's easy to say, it is that God will pull their protection back there again for opening up to Satan. Was not that what happened on 22 July 2011? The Socialists spins and spins on the same again, it makes me pretty dull. What they need that we all need is to repent to the Lord Jesus and pray for mercy again, it is the only and best solution, get the grace of God all over again.

God's grace and forgiveness

their forgiveness to restore our relationship to them. Forgiveness is given despite the fact that a person does not deserve to be forgiven. No one deserves to be forgiven. Forgiveness is an act of love and grace. Forgiveness is a decision to no longer hold anything against a person, despite what they have done to you.

The Bible tells us that all people need forgiveness from God. We have all sinned. Ecclesiastes tells us, "There is not a righteous man on earth who does what is right and never sins." 1 John 1:8 says, "If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us." After all, it's a shame a rebellious act against God (Psalm 51:4). The result is that we are desperate and need God's forgiveness. If our sins are not forgiven, we will spend eternity in suffering as a consequence (Matthew 25:46, John 3:16).

Forgiveness - How can I get it?

Fortunately, God is loving and gracious and eager to forgive us our sins! 2. Peter 3:9 tells us, "... But he has patience with you because he does not want anyone to perish but that all should come to repentance." God wants desperately to forgive us and he has the power to forgive.

The only just penalty for our sins is death. The first part of Romans 6:23 says, "For the wages of sin is death ..." Eternal death is what we deserve for our sins. In God's perfect plan, He was a person - Jesus Christ (John 1:1,14). Jesus died on the cross and took the punishment that we deserved - death. 2. Corinthians 5:21 teaches us, "He who knew no sin, God made sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God." Jesus died on the cross and took the punishment that we deserve! Jesus' death brings forgiveness for the sins of the world. 1. John Letters 2:2 says, "And he is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the whole world." Jesus rose from the dead and declares victory over sin and death (1 Corinthians 15:1-28). Glory to God through Jesus' death and resurrection, shows that the last half of Romans 6:23 is true: "... but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord."

Do you want forgiveness for your sins? Do you have a nagging feeling of guilt that you did not get away from? Forgiveness of sins is available if you take your faith in Jesus Christ as your savior. Ephesians 1:7 says, "In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, by His grace wealth." Jesus paid our debt so we could be forgiven. All you need to do is ask God to forgive you, believe that Jesus died to pay for your forgiveness - and He will forgive you. In John 3:16-17, you can read this lovely message: "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him. "

Forgiveness - is it really that easy?

Yes it is! You can not earn God's forgiveness. You can not pay for God's forgiveness. You can only accept it by faith, because of God's grace. If you want to accept Jesus Christ as your Savior and receive forgiveness from God, please pray this prayer. To pray this prayer or any other prayer will not save you. Only faith in Jesus Christ can give you the forgiveness of sins. "God, I know I have sinned against you and deserve punishment. But Jesus Christ took the punishment that I deserve so that through being in the belief in him can have your forgiveness. I turn away from my sins and faith in you so I can be saved. Thank you for your wonderful grace and forgiveness! Amen! "

Renders here to lecture Haakonsen who is himself

A birds eye view

It is suitable to begin this lecture with a biblical quote. There I pick up from the 40th chapter of Isaiah: Comfort, comfort my people, it says. And again: Speak tenderly to Jerusalem and cry unto her that her warfare is ended, that her guilt is paid.

Unfortunately we can not say that this appeal is the Norwegian people heavily on the heart. In the past few decades, the anti-Semitic tendencies in our people only become clearer and clearer. That we would comfort Israel and speak tenderly to Jerusalem, is NOK distant from most people. Yes, we should have made such a call in public, would we NOK have been met with disbelief and irritation.

Well, one thing is that we will comfort Israel. So be it. Isolation is not the whole world. But we ignore that this is not any challenge. These are words that come from the Lord himself. It is God who directs us to bless His people - the Jews. He who will not bless Israel will themselves to lose the blessing. That's the great earnest - for we lose the blessing we under the curse - that is, under God's Judgement. But I am afraid that such a reality is completely outside of both the people and the church's horizon.

I mention this initially to have it as an underlying factor. We can not taunt Israel without a day to have to give account for it. This is a basic biblical truth that it is impossible to ignore.

Not new

Now you have no faith that today's anti-Semitic attitudes and the church's aversion to the State of Israel is the new date. We're going to cost a little historical retrospective that highlights this.

The date is 1814. Across Europe, relieved now Jews. The French Revolution (1789) and Napoleonic warfare had led to emansipasjonstanken had been spread throughout Europe. The Jews became assimilated with the other country's citizens. 1814 was the date when all of Denmark's Jews had full civil rights.

But in Norway, so it is very different. Assembly at Eidsvold decided to close all the Jews out of the kingdom - the famous paragraph 2 of the Constitution. This occurred despite the fact that there was a single Jew in the country. Norway decided therefore to go against the liberal trends in Europe. It can be a wonder. But it appears that the prejudices against the Jews were living in the Norwegian people already at this time.

A particular stakeholder issues, the church's attitude. At Eidsvold gathered 112 representatives including 14 priests. One of the most ardent proponents of the ban was res.kap. Nicolai Wergeland Kristiansand who promoted his own draft of paragraph 2 His argument for shutting Jews out was clearly anti-Semitic - "A true Jew could never be a good citizen ..." During the debate at Eidsvold was only 3 of the 14 priests who took the word against the ban.

It had four parliamentary sessions before the Jewish section were finally lifted. The first happened in 1851. During this period the church was represented in Parliament with many of its priests. Approximately half of these were opposed to repeal the Jewish section, and they did not give up the opposition before they realized that the battle was lost. By then, public opinion changed, not least thanks to Henrik Wergeland. A theology student later a minister in the Norwegian Church (Kristine Værnes) has done a survey on this and concludes by saying that the church was not a pioneer in the Jewish case. It was not to say too much.

How did so later in the 1800's?

Well, it was remarkable that even laymen's organizations came up with an anti-Jewish attitude. Lutheran Church envoy who was a professor Gisle Johnson as its first editor, who was spokesman for the Inner Mission, had in the 1870's and 80's several articles with an anti-Semitic content. Judaism was portrayed as the great danger and the Jews were described in very negative terms.

An exception in those years, Israel Mission, which was formed in 1844. It was partly Israel Mission that got in through that Israel should be mentioned in the church prayer - a prayer that long since been removed.

The magazine Church and Culture was published for the first time in 1894. It was a høykirkelig body that eventually came to promoted anti-Semitic attitudes. In connection with the Christmas celebration in 1904 suggests the magazine to start a trade boycott against Jewish merchants. "It is a defilement of Christ's party when we carry our sour earned pennies ind in the houses of the descendants of the people who korsfæstede him."

Of the individuals in the church hold at the end of the 1800s, we will restrict ourselves to quote Johan Christian Heuch who had a high star in ecclesiastical circles. He was hailed as the church's foremost advocate of intellectual struggle and was also bishop of Kristiansand. In 1879, he gives out a passage in which it states: "The church has many enemies but none is so energetic, one-sided, hateful and unforgiving as the anti-Christian Judaism." And it was far from the only anti-Semitic outcome he came with.

We could also have mentioned a number of articles and discussions in the secular press who were clearly hostile to Jews. But this is not a lesson in history. I mention only these glimpses to illustrate that anti-Semitism has always lived among us and that Christians in the whole, have not constituted an exception in this respect.

Occupation of Norway

We will make a big jump forward in time to World War II and the German occupation of Norway. The Norwegian Church was during the war, the nation's mouthpiece to the occupying power.

In the so-called church struggle against Nazism, we find three key documents. The first came in January 1941. It was the Pastoral Letter which argued for elementary human rights, first and foremost rule of law and freedom of conscience. The next was the Church Basic that came in connection with the priests of office closure in April 1942. Neither of the two documents reviews the Jewish position yet Quisling government at the time had implemented several measures aimed at Jews.

The final document was the so-called Hebrews which was published in December 1942. It protested against the persecution of the Jews in the country. But then it was too late. The Jews had been arrested and sent to Germany a month earlier. When the church woke up, the Jews were already dead.

Could the Norwegian Church have influenced the government while it was still possible to do something for the Jews?

Professor Torleiv Austad, our foremost expert in this area, took this matter up in a lecture held at the Jewish Museum in November 2010. He says that it is likely that the church with the authority that had the people would have been able to influence both their government and the German occupation forces. But the church realized the seriousness of the situation of late. The church was not sufficiently concerned with the Jewish situation. "The Jews' legal rights position was not really urgent and compelling issue for the Norwegian church leaders." It was the indifference of those who lived.

In his speech carries Torleiv Austad to the table new information that is shocking. The campaign against the Jews was not surprising either the church or the resistance movement. The Norwegians were not immediately informed that something was happening, he said. For already in March 1942, German officers leaked to his Norwegian contacts that Norwegian Jews were arrested and that the purpose was to exterminate them. Austad says that "it is difficult to imagine that not the Temporary Church leadership was informed about what was going on."

The Norwegian resistance movement and the church leadership was therefore exactly the same signals as the Danish, but the reaction was exactly the opposite. While the Danes throw around and save the Jews, we receive the information with disbelief and indifference, and do nothing.

Austad concluded his presentation by saying that "hatred of Jews, persecution of Jews and Jewish legal rights position was not really urgent and compelling issue for the Norwegian church leaders in March / April 1942. ... In the aftermath, it is understandable that this has been judged as failures. "

It's probably the closest the Norwegian Church has been a self-knowledge. But it is wrong to say that the church has learned from history. For as we shall see, praising our bishops today the enemies of Israel and speaks disparagingly of the Jews' struggle to preserve their country and their government.


But before we get there, we turn to another highlight - the creation of Israel in 1948.

For Christians in Norway should be the creation of Israel have been a momentous event. Here the Land of the Bible promises being fulfilled right before their eyes. But it is wrong to say that there were some among the Christian people who stood up to shout a cheer for the new state in 1948. The Jewish state was met with massive silence.

This is what many of us who have marveled at. Among other things, we are surprised that the laity did not follow a different line than the official church. Although I have examined a number of journals from the year 1948. Among these is the Lutheran Church Times Church and Culture, Cross Victory and Mission magazine for Israel. Professor Karl Egil Johansen from Bergen University College has particularly looked at the newspapers from 1948. Professor Oskar Overall Aune from Church Faculty has also interested in this. We have been sitting at opposite edge and work independently of each other, but stakeholder NOK, we found exactly the same result.

Christian people are silent as the grave. None of the magazines I looked through - with the exception of Israel mission - mentions the state of Israel with a word. It also applies to the Cross says that the Pentecostal body. Mission magazine for Israel, however, has a strong commitment. But what we read there is appalling. Israel Mission is against mass immigration of Jews to Palestine, they are opposed to Zionism, they are against the UN-sharing decisions and they are against the creation of Israel. Now comes the black death, could Christian Ihlen, the magazine's editors write, for without Christ - no Jewish nation.

Now we must add that Israel Mission gradually came to change the view, but the land promises to Israel have never been comfortable with.

What about newspapers?

The leading newspapers Aftenposten and Bergens Tidende was very critical of what they saw as a Zionist experiment in the Middle East. More surprising is the fact that the newspaper Our Country also listened to the critics. Yes, so critical was the newspaper that the one time was accused of anti-Semitism.

Bright spot was the newspaper the day in Bergen under the direction of editor John Lavik. The newspaper was the voice of Peter Faye Hansen and Albert Hiorth, two hot Israeli friends. Stakeholders are also the Communist newspaper The freedom advocated the new state. It was NOK with the fact that Joseph Stalin was one of the most ardent advocates of the Jewish cause. Without him, would not the state of Israel have seen the light. Likewise, the stakeholders that the single-copy newspaper, the cultural liberal Dagbladet wholeheartedly supported Israel. Behind this newspaper was Norway's cultural elite that therefore the time was strongly pro-Israeli.

Yet, when we sum up, we must say that the Norwegian people - including most Christians - showed little interest in the newly created Jewish state. Independence War, which lasted throughout 1948, was something we watched from a distance without commitment.

For us who are Bible-oriented, it is difficult to understand that the Norwegian Christian people could be so uncommitted. And we must ask why?

The main reason is NOK in theology. The theological research which, among other things, Theology had been doing from day 1 (the historical-critical method), had gradually pushed the Old Testament in the background. It could no longer be read by its wording, but had reinterpreted. Common to this for the interpretation was that promises were spiritualized. This affected the understanding of Israel as the specific historical aspect of the promises were gone. Instead of the historic Israel was the Christian church. Israel in the Old Covenant was replaced with the church in the new covenant, and promises to Israel were transferred to the church. This is called replacement theology.

The point here is that Israel and the promises to the Jews as a people have, it disappears out of theology and of preaching. Such a respected man like Ole Hallesby had long assured his audience that Israel in the Old Covenant was now superseded by the spiritual Israel of the new covenant. Land reform was not an option. Israel would never get their land back. Israel's special position was at an end in and of the old covenant.

Although Hallesby later had to admit that he had been wrong what concerned the Jews return to the country, then the theology to live on. We can mention as key teachers as brothers Aalen and Ivar P Seierstad. But we could also have mentioned several other faculty at the church. Faculty shaped theology students in his image and this came back to the church's color perception.

Today the Church of Israel as a nation among nations and peoples on an equal footing with other nations. Israel's special status as God's people are graded out. But what is interesting is that this notion is not new, it is a product of a theology that has been there all along. It's just become more expressed with age.

The modern theological research leads then to Israel to be erased from the Bible. That is what is called anti-Judaism or to an ecclesiastical anti-Semitism. The sad thing is that the laity have not had the backbone to resist this trend. Laity is authoritarianism, it has confidence that the church's men know better than themselves. It reveals that the laity look at the church - but also their own organizational leaders - as a greater authority than the Bible. If there is anything that can be called a disaster of our time, it's laity lack of confidence in their own Bible.

Said. One of those who rejoiced over Israel's founding was Håkon Lie, party secretary of Labor. Together with several other known variables such as Konrad Nordahl in LO, and Jens Christian Hauge went early into the Jewish state in Palestine. Eventually they got the government on the slide, and after the tragic plane crash on Hurum autumn 1949 where Jewish children were killed, also received the Norwegian people aware of Jewish suffering.

In the following years developed a close friendship between Norway and Israel and between the Norwegian and Israeli workers. For a fleeting moment was anti-Semitism one death - at least it was away from the public.

But how deep ran the Labour Party's friendship with Israel?

Labor support for Israel was primarily a support for the labor movement in Israel. This involves clear from a statement that came in 1948, which states: "The Norwegian Labour Party expressed its solidarity with the working of the State of Israel." Thus, it was the class struggle that motivated support - not the creation of a Jewish state. Leading Israelis that David Ben Gurion, Golda Meir, Levi Eshkhol and Simon Peres was first and foremost to understand that good socialists. The Jews came in second place.

The consequence of this we see the workers in Israel loses power. It happened the first time in 1977 when Menachem Begin of Likud formed a government. From then on, the workers had to switch on government power with the right wing in Israel. And from then on was support for the Jewish Israel increasingly difficult. It's like Hans Olav Lahlum writes in his biography of Haakon Lie, that when the labor movement in Israel came back strongly, also disappeared more and more of Haakon Lie's loyalty.

That something was going on, we received a signal as early as the AUF's national convention in 1971. In a proposal that was submitted stated: "The prerequisite for a lasting peace must be the state of Israel ceases to exist as a Jewish state." The final decision was that the wording muted anything but the name is still the AUF can not accept "the exclusive principle that the state of Israel based on ".

10 years later, this view largely also eluded the Mother Party. In a statement from the General Assembly in 1981 states that "there must be a fair solution which meets the Palestinians' legitimate national rights." The fact that the Palestinians had "national rights" was something new. Attention of and support for Israel was now gradually being replaced by the Palestinians' rights. "

This shift away from Israel was in no way limited to the Labour Party. The Norwegian industry turned its back on Israel in the 70s. Large Norwegian companies entered into contracts with Arab countries tacitly assumed boycott of Israel. Those who criticized this, was told that it was the Norwegian jobs.

An episode that illustrates this. When Menachem Begin came to Oslo to receive the Peace Prize in 1978, he took up the question of whether Norway could provide North Sea oil to Israel. Labour Government was immediately cold feet. Oil for Israel to make trade agreements with the Arab world in danger and we could risk being blacklisted by the Arab League. The private sector raised the alarm. In the Parliament was right to stand together with the Labour Party. Just between the parties was willing to supply Israel with oil.

1982 and subsequent years

After the Lebanon War in 1982, John Doe back to his old anti-semitic. Shift away from Israel were completed. The war against PLO bases in Lebanon was an abuse, to Norwegian newspapers and television NRK tell. Arbeiderbladet believed that Israel showed a "criminal lack of moderation" and that Israel as a state had "developed a power arrogance and blind stupidity." The tone of the other newspapers were much the same.

The report of the Broadcasting Corporation was one-sided pro-Palestinian which they received criticism for later. Norwegian media was a conscious effort to convey the news that was intended to create public opinion for the Palestinians. Israel's security situation was misappropriated.

This way of communicating news has remained to date. Norwegian media made no attempt to take Israel's position over him. Analysis of what is actually going on is totally absent. And when you only aim to understand the one party to a conflict, this is to me tantamount to anti-Semitism.

How far the Norwegian people with years dreidd in pro-Palestinian direction, Jostein Gaarder's article in Aftenposten in August 2006 a good example. Jostein Gaarder writes among others. A: "We no longer recognize the State of Israel. .. 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 call it racism. "The article concludes that the Israeli civilian population are regarded as fair game when the state of Israel is gone.

Mona Levin said that the op-ed was the ugliest she had read since "Mein Kampf". But it is wrong to say that the Norwegian people agreed with it. A Gallup poll conducted after the op-ed, showed that the entire 46.6 percent of respondents agreed with Gaarder's settlement with Israel. Among these, the entire cultural elite in Norway and our former Prime Minister Kaare Willoch.

The article attracted attention far beyond its borders. The Danish newspaper Jyllands Posten said that Gaarder's article added naturally into the Norwegian anti-Semitic tradition. It was part of our national heritage to be a Jew hostile, said the newspaper. And it is hard to disagree in.

The Church. Where is then the Norwegian Church in this picture?

The Norwegian Church is a national church and place great emphasis on being just that. The church must be where the people are. It is the slogan. In January 1960 a bishop's statement that warns against anti-Semitism at home and abroad. But this was a time when people were clearly pro-Israeli. In 1977 we find a similar statement but with a definite addition that the church does not want to take a position on one or other party to the Middle East conflict. Church of signals in other words, a neutral attitude. The Church feels no apparent need to defend their Jewish roots.

In a revision of the liturgy in 1997 found the church that it is time to throw out intercession for Israel. In more than a hundred years had it in our domestic high mass sounded: "Open the door of faith to all the Gentiles and the people of Israel" and "gather the Gentiles fullness and the remnant of Israel". Israel no longer had a unique situation and Palestinian demands were equally entitled to the Jews.

The new century begins with a procession of church leaders find their way to Palestine. Best known is perhaps the journey of 13 Norwegian church leaders did in November 2002 to meet Yasser Arafat. Included in the delegation included the Bishop John Steinsholt, Olav Tveit as head of the Church Council, now Secretary General of the World Council of Churches and the General Secretary in Israel Mission Rolf Gunnar Heitmann. In a joint statement from the leaders stated that it was imperative that Israel's withdrawal from Palestinian areas. Some similar message of support to Israel, the delegation was not. On the contrary, the newspaper Our Land reported that church leaders were appalled by Israel.

In May 2007, the bishops Baasland and Haugland Byfuglien in Israel. Byfuglien was last year dedicated to the President of the Norwegian Church. On the basis of a visit to Hebron to the two Norwegian bishops denounce Israel as an apartheid state. Nothing less. In an article in the day stamped Gro Wenske statement as toxic and anti-Semitic. We must say that we agree in.

The preliminary highlight of this tragic development is the Bishop's statement Meeting of March 2010. It said the bishops to praise about the so-called Cairo document. This is a document that was adopted by Christian church leaders in Jerusalem last year. The document is a one-sided party posts for the Palestinians. It speaks in clear terms to the Land of the Bible promises and labels these as a threat to Palestinian existence. The document says in plain language that "The Israeli occupation is a sin against God." And no one need be in no doubt that the "Israeli occupation" means all the land that the state of Israel is on.

Bishop Halvor Nordhaug could in an article in Our Country in November 2010 make it clear that the Land of the Bible promises did not apply anymore and that there was something special about the Israeli state formation from a theological standpoint.

Well, we could have continued with several examples. Not least, I think, as the many Israelis hostile statements that the Church Council is made. The main impression is clear that the Norwegian Church distances itself from the state of Israel - at least as a Jewish state. So one can wonder: why? Would not it be more natural to touch the Jews and their nation to its chest? Judaism is, after all, Christianity's roots.

Palestinians struggle to destroy Israel fits like a glove into the Church's theology. While Palestinians are fighting for their country, fighting the church for his opinion that the Jewish people did not long have a unique situation. Country promises do not apply anymore. But this view is the more problematic the longer the Jews remain together in their country. But if the Jewish state disappear, as would theology be rescued. How is it possible to have a common interest.

When we draw the long lines, the conclusion is inevitably that the church has an anti-Semitic tradition that it is unable to free themselves from. Professor of Church History Oskar Overall Aune says that "a negative attitude towards Judaism and the Jewish ... has been a central part of the ecclesiastical tradition." This is my view that the Church has long advocated a theology which in its absurdity is clear biblical unconstitutional. In its consequence, this means that the church must take a heavy responsibility for the anti-Semitism that manifests itself in its own ranks and the people at large.

Finally, I will go back where I started - the connection between sin and punishment.

We who have a Christian understanding of reality, knows that there is no long can violate God's word, or violate God's people but we are the object of his wrath. He waits with his anger at Judgement Day, as some seem to think. God's destructive powers are evident here in time. That this is so is NOK so obvious to every Bible reader.

We here in Norway know of two accidents that brings to mind the relationship between sin and punishment: Alexander Kielland accident and Utøya massacre.

In 1978, Americans made a direct request from the Norwegian government with a request for oil deliveries to Israel. The idea was to bring Norway into the Camp David agreement between Egypt and Israel as a kind of guarantor of oil supplies to Israel. This initiative was followed by Vice President Walter Mondale during his visit to Norway in April 1979. But Norway was very clear in its rejection.

In March 1980 overturning Alexander Kielland platform and 123 people killed.

Utøya massacre can be seen in light of the increasingly inflamed relations between Israel and Norway and the diplomatic controversies that have been recently. The 21.juli'll Foreign Minister Utøya and can be photographed in front of a transparent reading "Boycott Israel". In his speech for Foreign Minister full support for the Palestinians must have their own state, that the occupation must end and that the wall must be demolished.

Utøya massacre was extensively commented on in the Israeli press that had also noted the work of youth israel hostile attitude. But the Norwegian cultural elite and Norwegian politicians got their passports stated on them.

It is thought that the two major accidents in Norway after the war, both can be linked to Norway's relations with Israel. Instinctively, we must ask, could these accidents have been avoided if we had had a more positive relationship with Israel?

Behind this question lies the certainty / knowledge of the Norwegian anti-Semitism. But parallel with this runs the de-Christianization of Norway. There are two sides of same coin.

The way I see it, Utøya and Alexander Kielland is not primarily a criminal, but a warning. If we do not take reefs in the sails await us far more accidents. The Lord is not mocked. "
