DenmarK: Friend or FoE or a little of BotH

Denmark not always a Friend of Israel

Based on this article May 2002:
“In March before the Danish Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen’s visit to the White House on March the 20th, Denmark had come under increasing attack by the Spanish EU president for not speaking out against Israeli aggression in the Palestinian controlled areas”.

ahem..Israeli aggression?..Well, that language certainly speaks to the lies and deceptions they have bought into. How unoriginal.

“This has changed, and Denmark now follows the majority of the other EU countries demanding an immediate withdrawal from the Palestinian territories recently reoccupied by Israel.”
Re-Occupied?…hmmm…as in land they won during a war that was waged against them?!

“While the governing parties (the liberal and the conservatives) agree that Denmark should support a peaceful, non-restrictive solution to the Israel-Palestine problem, not everybody in Danish politics shares that view. Both Mogens Lykketoft and Niels Helveg Petersen say that they will be willing to “discuss” economic sanctions against Israel…”

“The left wing in Danish politics is traditionally pro-Palestinian and, in the current situation, wants to see much harsher measures taken against Israel..”

What is it with “left wingers” anyway?..Is it a directional issue? Right-Left, Good-Evil, Right-Wrong… Do they need a moral compass perhaps? Or do they simply suffer from naive ideas of their own grandeur?

On the other hand, there is the RIGHT wing:

“On the right wing, however, Dansk Folkeparti takes a pro-Israeli stance. For example, Søren Espersen suggests to Nordjyske Stiftstidende that the Israelis have no choice and that, if they withdraw from the territories occupied in 1967 (as Un resolutions demand), then that would mean the end of Israel. Søren Espersen thinks that the Arab world still seeks to destroy Israel and that the Saudi peace proposal is empty rhetoric. As long as we do not understand this fundamental drive in the Arab world (the wish to destroy Israel), says Espersen, then we “have not understood the way in which the Arab mind works.” (Nordjyske Stiftstidende, April 7, 2002).”

The way the Arab mind works..let us just ponder that for a moment shall we?

“Israeli diplomats do not go that far..counselor to the Israeli Ambassy in Copenhagen visited Aalborg University where he gave a speech to a large number of students. He said that he was happy to present the Israeli “case” in public because he felt that the Western media only reported from the Palestinian point of view. Then, he proceeded to repeat the same statements that you can hear on BBC and CNN: Israel wants peace, they already offered the Palestinians an independent state, and Israel is, now, simply trying to protect itself against “terrorism”.”

Are left wingers so committed to suffocating truth that they won’t countenance any suggestion
that smacks of reality?
Let me make this REALLLLLLLLLLL simple then.

and by the way…that includes Israel and the United States of America.

    I’ve never been able to figure out the left’s abandonment of Jews and Israel.
    Thier hearts bleed for palestinians, but they ignore the way Islam treats Jews and Christians.

    No matter what the Muslim sect–even mystical Sufism–one unifying factor is pathological hatred of the Jews. It’s in the Koran.

    Just my opinions here…Leftists’ hearts bleeds only for the enemies of the United States. And that’s why the Leftists and the Islamofascists are tied together right now–a common hatred. And because the U.S. supports Israel, the Left has also turned on the Jews.
