Ehud Barak is like a whale who swims up on the beach to commit suicide, says the Norwegian Editor Harald Stanghelle.
The Norwegian Daily «Aftenposten» was once the official newspaper for the Conservatives in Norway. But not any longer.
In a comment, Editor Harald Stanghelle expresses his concern for the Israeli Labor Party, whom he claims is «committing suicide by supporting the Government of Benjamin Netanyahu»
Stanghelles viewpoint, is that the Labor party rather should have supported the more radical elements in Israeli politics, such as the «Peace now» movement. The Norwegian editor is quoting from this movement, in a bid to ridicule the present defense Minister of Israel.
This is a very interesting development, among the Conservatives in Norway. Supporting the fare left in Israel, and condemning the Labor party for supporting a Conservative view on safety and security of the constitution of Israel, and a conservative view on the need for a strong and effective defense force.
Its also worth mentioning that the man Harald Stanghelle is portraying as «committting political suicide», is the highest ranking soldier of the Jewish Nation. Who have faced Islamic terrorists on the battlefield.
Ehud Barak, has also tried to make peace in the Middle East, by offering Yasser Arafat and the PLO, 97 per cent of the so-called West Bank, and East Jerusalem. The Islamic Movement replied by more suicide bombers, and randomly killing innocent civilians in Israel. Unlike Stanghelle, Barak has first handedly learned the tough realities of life.
«The Labor party of Israel was the nation builder of Israel in the first decades of its foundation. That seems to be along time ago. Now, the party has been reduced to a shadow of it self. People now claim that Ehud Barak has given the party the kiss of death, by supporting the present Netanyahu goverment».
My question: For how long do we have to read this kind of rubbish from an editor in a supposed to be a conservative newspaper in Norway?
