Neal, you should know by now, that I am using once in a while a little bit of irony in my posts, so please don't take each single word face value. However my message remains the same: The tactic of "snubbing" against friendly nations is simply not a smart tactic. Look, Israel is allowed to do whatever she wants, but I am also allowed to give my opinion on it. I can guarantee you, if under the same circumstances my governement in Switzerland would start such a thing, they would also get an ear full, and in a very different way than I did it now in my post to Haaretz. And with regard to socialising, I don't think Norway wants to throw Israel into the sea, or what you say....?? Remember, this article was about "snubbing" friendly nations like Norway, not Hamas....
