It was not “the active and passive backing of the persecution of the Jews which was a precondition for the hard-core anti-Semites to convince large sections of German society to collaborate in a criminal policy and practice, but a broad portion of the population was characterized by lack of concern, not caring, moral numbness’ and denial. There were no counterforces.”
Late last week I ran a disturbing post on the virulent anti-semitism in Norway: Jew Hatred in Norway. The leftists bow to their Islamic paymasters. It seems all you gotta do is show them the money and they throw the Jews down well. Scum.
And here I thought the North Pole was immune .... next stop Mars.

Jew Hatred in Norway: Part II
Both in Oslo and Bergen there are demands for full academic and cultural boycotts of everything connected with Israel. The boycott is supposed to be far reaching. Yesterday the prestigious Holberg prize was awarded to Frederic Jameson. Exactly two years ago it went to Shmuel N. Eisenstadt of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. That enraged the author of this autumn’s new boycott booklet, Ebba Wergland, prompting her to write an article in the academic paper Replikk. She wrote that he should never have received the prize, since he was an academic representative of the Israeli “apartheid state”.
The thought is horrible: An independent awarding of prizes based on academic merit should be subjected to political considerations thereby isolating independent researchers.
It's not a "political consideration", it is deep hatred and jealousy of the Jews. "Israel" the Jew haters argument to an age old hate. "Political" is the cloak of their deception.
This would mean the triumph of irrationality over reason. It would also mean the end of debate, and that the beginning of black and white thinking has taken over in which the perpetrator and the victim have been defined once and for all. Those who boycott thus act as absolute judges.
The shots against the Synagogue in Oslo, the attacks on the Jewish cantor on Karl Johan [central shopping street in Oslo], Jostein Gaarder’s column, Raymond Johansen’s talks with Hamas and Kristin Halvorsen’s call for a boycott were mentioned as examples of why Norway’s tiny Jewish minority considers it wise to keep a low profile.
The Norwegian, Swedish and Finnish embassies in Israel apparently declined to comment on the theme of the seminar, according to the Israeli newspaper Haaretz.
“I will also use the occasion to commemorate all the billions of lice and louse who lost their lives in the German gas chambers, without having done anything wrong other than choosing people of Jewish origin,” said Jespersen to the Norwegian TV viewers.
“The comments from Jespersen are disrespectful and offensive,” says Valner to Dagsavisen.
Valner explains that he lived through anti-Semitism before the Second World War, and he felt the consequences when large parts of his family was sent to Auschwitz.
He is starting to see signs that anti-Semitism is spreading in Norwegian society.
“You can say more on television than before, and the newspapers are full of unbalanced Israel criticism which we are not allowed to answer. There are still more coming, step by step,” he says.
The financial crisis makes him more worried.
“History tells us that Jew-hatred flourishes in bad times. That is why I charge TV2 and Otto Jespersen now, to get some focus on this,” says Kurt Valner.
Rolf has been doing yeoman's work translating the vile truth for us. Fjordman found another disgusting piece by a Norwegian "journalist", and Rolf says he'll translate that one, too.
Thank you Rolf. As soon as the Baron has it, I'll post it. Rage, my friends, rage against the machine. They will be coming after you next.
