Dear Dr L Brnd, In your third point in your tirade against Norway you say, quote: 3) Norwegian banks transferring funds to Hamas held financially liable for any terrorist acts committed by Hamas, in accordance with well-established international legal precedent. What is this well?established international legal precedent? This is news to me. Are you telling me that the British Government can make claims against US banks for the terrorist acts committed by the IRA? That will run into billions. And these terrorist acts, do they include those committed by nation states? For example, can the countries of Central and South America claim against the US for the terror it launched against them in the 70s and 80s? You then go on to claim that Hamas is a genocidal regime. I am not quite sure on what basis you make that claim. However, there is overwhelming evidence to show that Israel is in breech of at least the first 13 articles of the International Declaration of Human Rights. Now that is truly genocidal. I think Norway has shown a lot of strength and courage. Hamas is a legitimate government elected in free and fair elections by its people. Israel and the Quartet have behaved abominably, not only in rejecting the first truly democratically elected Arab government, but also in trying to starve it into surrender to give up its legitimate claims against Israel. Shame on you sir for supporting them. Bravo to Norway for standing up for the underdog. Theirs is the true spirit of democracy.
