Tosefta, I am sorry, but I have to disagree with you on this one. It's not the point here, whether Israeli diplo- mats are involved or not. But it is still a major "diplomatical" insult if you refuse to talk to a foreign statesman of a friendly nation, only because he is disagreeing with you on a certain issue. Especially if he (like the Norwegians certainly do) has only the very best intentions for your country. There are certainly other means you can use, if you wanna show your displeasure with a decision. Apart from the fact that it looks just incredi- ble childish, it is simply unworthy of a proud democracy like Israel.
