    I am going to boycott Norwegian, Danish and Dutch products in retaliation for their boycotts of Israeli firms operating in the West Bank over the Green Line. The so-called occupied territories were captured by TransJordan in the 1948 war by King Abdullah, who promptly renamed his country as Jordan. Only the UK, Pakistan and Kuwait recognized this action de jure, the rest recognised it de facto. In June 1967, the UN let a platoon of Jordanian soldiers into Talpiot through Government House. So why is Israel guilty? for winning the Six Day War and thwarting Egyptian, Jordanian and Syrian plans to wipe Israel off the map. Ibsen must be turning over in his grave. I can't stand Western hypocrisy, psychophancy and myopic behaviour towards Islamic fundamentalism and terrorism.
