U.S Ambassador (Wilkileaks ):Norwegian Government Sympathetic to Hamas / Prof.B.Rubin

September 3rd, 2011
You might remember the attack on me by the Norwegian foreign minister, deputy foreign minister, and ambassador after I pointed out the fact that the country’s government and especially its Labor party showed sympathy for terrorist groups, especially Hamas.

Norway’s media and government were angry that someone might dare criticize their policies. Criticism, as they define it, is what they get to do to other countries, especially Israel.

But guess what? A Wikileaks release I’ve just discovered (though apparently it was available before the Breivik terrorist attack affair) shows us that the U.S. ambassador to Norway reported precisely what I said. According to Ambassador Benson K. Whitney in 2009:

“Although the Government of Norway would deny it, there are clear signs that contacts with Hamas go beyond a tactical desire for dialogue to a level of sympathy for Hamas positions. ”

He added that, for example, the foreign minister explained that Hamas couldn’t be expected to recognize Israel since it didn’t know what borders Israel was claiming, and concluded, “While the Foreign Minister expresses some sympathy for the Hamas position only in unguarded moments other prominent Norwegians go further.”
