Norway calls for boycott on arms to Israel

OSLO (AFP) - A Norwegian minister and leader of a political party calls for an international boycott of arms trade with Israel following a deadly raid by Israeli commandoes on a Gaza-bound aid flotilla.

"Everyone should follow the Norwegian position which excludes trading arms with Israel," said Kristin Halvorsen, education minister and head of the Socialist Left party, according to the Dagbladet tabloid.

"It doesn't have much of an effect if we do it alone, but the current situation is unbearable," she added.

Norway on Monday summoned the Israeli ambassador in Oslo and condemned the raid as "unacceptable".

Norwegian foreign ministry spokesman Bjørn Jahnsen meanwhile told AFP that the three Norwegians who had been onboard one of the flotilla's six boats were unharmed and detained in the south of Israel.

Nine of the flotilla's passengers were killed when Israeli commandoes attacked it early Monday.

The ships, carrying more than 700 passengers, were on the last leg of a high-profile mission to deliver some 10,000 tonnes of supplies to Hamas-run Gaza as part of a protest against the blockade.

The doctrines of nuclear ambiguity and disproportional ity of force (as a way to hasten an ultimately greater power stance later on) highlights the climate of fear that the increasingly extremist Israeli politicians work hard to maintain. This policy of fear and compulsary military service keeps the citizens compliant and supportive of rightist politicians - not unlike the US under GW Bush which ultimately somewhat changed; Israel will be no different.

Well, I do not agree with most of the opinions voiced by many Europeans countries namely Norway,France among others led by Turkey,,its hypocracy of highest degree,,,we all know and agree that Israel is always targeted by terrorist so called militants and had to defend itself which it did as expected,, had these countries stoped this confrotation from activits,,they would not be reacting n shedding crocodile tears,,Israel you must be firm and do it again if this' what you must do to survive!!!!

Only if the US joins this embargo will this have any effect on Israel. Sadly, this is unlikely to happen.
