Norwegian appeasement fails

Gates of Vienna has a developing report on pro-Hamas riots in Oslo. You might ask what makes this story particularly meaningful... after all there have been riots and anti-Jewish attacks across the continent this week.

It's because Norway is the Western country that has been most supportive of Hamas since they won the Palestinian elections in 2006.

Norway's deputy foreign minister Raymond Johansen met with Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh in March 2007.

Norway was the first to recognize the Hamas-led government and lift the economic and political boycott.

The lesson is that no amount of appeasement will keep the Jihadists away. It is shocking that now the Obama administration is preparing to go down the very same road.
