Not a surprise. The mood in Norway vis a vis Israel is similar to the mood in the American South during Jim Crow. A black man accused of a crime could not hope to be acquitted by an all white jury. A black man suing a white man could hardly, if at all, hope to get justice from a white judge. The same odds pertain to Israel demanding fairness in media coverage from an all-Norwegian press. It is simply not possible. Never mind the fact that a Broadcasting council faced with the challenge of criticizing their own media coverage will often choose to close ranks with that side, and prefer its arguments over that of the accuser’s. Add to that the probability that the council members share the bias of the media, of course they will be incapable of noticing, let alone acknowledging, its manifestations.
An Israeli Jew in Norway gets the same amount of respect and credibility that a Jew would get in the Arab Caliphate: a Jew’s testimony is valued at half the worth of a Muslim’s.
Is It Time To Take Trump Seriously?
