A HIGH-PROFILE NORWEGIAN doctor who has said the September 11 terrorists were justified in their attack is now treating patients in Gaza and is being accused of presenting "hard-core propaganda" to TV interviewers in his telling of the conflict between Hamas and Israel.
Think you know your neighbors?
Yes indeed, Dr. Mads Gilbert has become an unofficial advocate of the Palestinian cause, his critics say.
Many international media reports, including those from the BBC, CBS, CNN and FOX’s sister station Sky News, present Gilbert as an ordinary doctor. But a look at his record shows that Gilbert, 61, is a political activist and member of the Norwegian Maoist "Red" party, and he has been involved in solidarity work for the Palestinians since the 1970s. He has criticized the international aid organization Doctors Without Borders for refusing to take sides in conflicts.
Gilbert volunteers at the Al-Shifa Hospital in Gaza with the Norwegian Aid Committee (NORWAC), an aid organization funded by the Norwegian government, and he has been interviewed by the media on a variety of issues. Israeli government officials have said Hamas hides weapons in the hospital where Gilbert works. NGO Monitor, an Israeli human rights watchdog group, says Gilbert presents one-sided criticism of Israel to the media and has accused Israel of deliberately targeting civilians in its Gaza offensive to stop Hamas from firing rockets into Israel.
In addition to being supportive of the terrorist organization Hamas, Gilbert has voiced support for the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
"The attack on New York did not come as a surprise after the policy that the West has led during the last decades," Gilbert told the Norwegian newspaper Dagbladet on Sept. 30, 2001. "The oppressed also have a moral right to attack the USA with any weapon they can come up with."
When asked if he supported a terror attack on the U.S., Gilbert said, "Terror is a bad weapon but the answer is yes within the context which I have mentioned."
Gerald Steinberg, executive director of NGO Monitor, said Gilbert's characterization of the situation in Gaza is "in the form of incitement of hatred."...
Sounds like all the silly leftists I know. And here's a tidbit that will leave you shaking your head at the asinine lengths the left will go to commit treason against their own ability to reason.
A research paper that won a Hebrew University teachers' committee prize finds that the lack of IDF rapes of Palestinian women is designed to serve a political purpose. The paper shows that "the lack of organized military rape is an alternate way of realizing [particular] political goals." The paper further theorizes that Arab women in Judea and Samaria are not raped by IDF soldiers because the women are de-humanized in the soldiers' eyes.
Some wayfarers apparently need to hate, loathe, and desecrate their own nest and its defenders. We may each, whether from our dirty hovels or sprite shiny McMansions, pray this terrible madness ends before all civilization is lost and a new dark age arises from the ashes, but I fear this mental disease is not mental at all, but is purely a spiritual gambit, and while the endgame dance of fore and brimstone is probably still a convenient distance off yet in the future, the Armageddon-disproving madness of the Far Left equals and is in fact, precisely the same phenomenon that the Far Right Neocons salivate to usher in upon us just to prove their point. The Islamicists are giddy to oblige both groups their holy war. Opposing teams, different uniforms, different playbooks, same sorry agenda.
All stand condemnedsharing the fate of staring through the Judas hole, blinded by their own reflections.
