Norway’s Cops Apologize for Sending Jews to Death Camps in WWII Jim Kouri (oh puleez! see note)

http://www.familysecuritymatters.org/publications/detail/norways-cops-apologize-for-sending-jews-to-death-camps-in-wwii

Tis a tad late dear Vikings….you should apologize for present day anti-Semitism and coddling of your anti-Semitic Moslem population and their Sharia demands….rsk

More than 67 years after World War II ended, Norway’s national police service officially apologized on Monday for the involvement of Norwegian cops in the deportation of more than 500 Jewish Norwegians during the Second World War.

Monday, Sept. 26, 2012, marked the 70th anniversary of the tragic and shameful episode in which 532 Jewish residents were arrested and “deported” to the infamous Nazi death camp at Auschwitz. Norway’s police herded their fellow citizens on board the German ship SS Donau to transport them to arguably the most notorious concentration camp in history.

Speaking to the Norwegian-language newspaper Dagsavisen, Norwegian police chief Odd Reidar Humlegaard said that he wished to apologize on behalf of the Norwegian Police Service and those who were involved with the deportation operation, in which more than 300 Norwegian policemen assisted the Nazis in rousting innocent Jews who were citizens of Norway.

Earlier this year, Norway’s Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg promulgated a formal apology for the deportation of the Jews to Auschwitz on behalf of the Norwegian government.

Norway’s police collaboration with the Nazi occupiers in the dark early morning 70 years ago was seen by many Norwegians as a “national shame.”

Palestine: Sharon’s Gaza Gambit – Brilliant Move or Tactical Disaster? By David Singer….see note please

NO URL….MY E-PAL DAVID SINGER IS AN EMINENT COMMENTATOR, WRITER AND ATTORNEY IN AUSTRALIA. I DO NOT AGREE WITH HIM THIS TIME AND THINK GLICK IS RIGHT. THE “GUARANTEES” THAT BUSH GAVE ARE USELESS AND SOON TO BE ENTIRELY ABROGATED BY THE PRESENT ADMINISTRATION….NOT WORTH THE PAPER THEY WERE WRITTEN ON AND LIKE CAMP DAVID, OSLO THEY ARE IN THE DUSTBIN OF THE MISGUIDED HISTORY OF ISRAELI APPEASEMENT…..RSK

“Gambit – an act that is calculated to gain an advantage, especially at the outset of a situation” – Oxford Dictionary

The end of the eight day bombardment of Israel’s civilian population by hundreds of rockets indiscriminately fired from the Gaza Strip has caused many respected commentators such as Caroline Glick to roundly criticise former Israeli Prime Minister – Ariel Sharon – for having unilaterally disengaged from the Gaza Strip in 2004 by withdrawing its army and 8000 Israeli citizens – many of whom had lived there for almost 40 years.

Writing in the Jerusalem Post on 22 November Ms Glick stated:

“As for that withdrawal from Gaza, just like the phony peace process with the PLO and the strategically demented withdrawal from south Lebanon, the withdrawal from Gaza was a self-evidently insane policy. It was obvious that it would lead to the strengthening of Palestinian terrorist groups and so put Israel’s population centers in striking range of their missiles…

STEVEN PLAUT: JUST WHAT WAS FUNDAMENTALLY WRONG WITH BOLSHEVISM?

http://frontpagemag.com/2012/steven-plaut/just-what-was-fundamentally-wrong-with-bolshevism/ I recently read the new biography of Trotsky by Oxford don Robert Service, published in 2009 by Pan Books. It is well-written and surprisingly interesting. The book does a great public service in describing the life of the actual Trotsky, whose previous “biographies” were little more than hagiographies written by his toady worshippers (people […]

CAL THOMAS: TAXPAYERS REVOLT!!

http://jewishworldreview.com/cols/thomas112912.php3 Congress returned to “work” this week (now there’s a laugh) to complete its lame-duck session before taking another holiday. Spending other people’s money is a taxing experience. Their task is to avoid the “fiscal cliff,” a geological construct of their own making. It doesn’t take a genius to predict both parties will try to […]

Providing a Platform for Terror by Samuel Westrop

http://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/3467/jeremy-corbyn-mousa-abu-maria If we really want to take an effective stand against extremism, we should not obsess over the extremists; rather, we should tackle those who facilitate, empower and legitimize extremism. The worst culprits are particular British Members of Parliament – elected officials whom we employ to safeguard our liberties and democratic rights but who betray […]
