Before they killed the Jews in a Norway the scummy Norwegians would tell the Jews to go "back" to Palestine, this Margrete Slettebø and Kristiane Nerdrum Bøgwald should have a taste of what the Jews have been through and are still going through, they are the actual enemies of the Jews on the earth, more than the Islamic terrorists
3. IThe Israeli occupation is a real act of rape
ASSAF YAGORI ,   HAIFA   (03.20.18)
Showing respect for Israel is like showing respect to rapists, criminals, thieves and child-killers.

How they use our medical, IT and military Tech, benefit from our intel and buy our goods(at a discount) but somehow we are not good enough for them. I suppose nothing has changed since the 2 faced vikings that came as traders then went round the corner and came back to ravage the villages of Europe. People never change

I sent them the following email: (Please email them at

I want you to know that thoughtful people who have actually taken the time to study the Arab-Israeli conflict in detail find your policy of banning all Israelis from your event to be a) immoral, b) short-sighted, c) totally brain-dead, d) potentially Anti-Semitic.

It is furthermore, an insult to women and women's rights. Israel is a shining beacon in the Middle East when it comes to human rights and women's rights. To single out Israel is completely brain-dead.

Now, I could write a volume about why your decision is ludicrous on multiple levels, but I strongly suspect that it would be lost on you, so I will only do so in the almost impossible scenario in which you ask me to. LOL.

10. They eat rotten eggs with sour-cream, what do we expect of
these Nordic savages?
Ezekiel Haim ,   London   (03.20.18)
A clear demonstration of Norway RACIST tendency embedded in their NAZI roots.The country deserves to be boycotted for its racist culture.Do not visit Norway.
12. The Nazi manufactured better products
Amram Cohen ,   Haifa   (03.20.18)
13. BDS continues to embarrass itself
Mordechai   (03.20.18)
No BDS does not lead Israel to isolation. A minor festival is a minor country which has virtually no attendance is completely unimportant.

Meanwhile countries worldwide invest billions in the Israeli economy every year. Tourism breaks records every year. The Israeli economy is on steroids

But some leftist anti semitic festival bans Jews. Who cares.
14. Quisling, Norway, some things never change
Allen ,   Brooklyn   (03.20.18)
Vidkun Quisling, Heinrich Himmler, Josef Terboven, and Nikolaus von Falkenhorst seated in front of officers of the Waffen-SS, German Army and Air Force in 1941
16. funny racist Norvegians
tiki ,   belgium   (03.20.18)
Turkish, Arab, Chinese, Russian, Morrocan etc.etc.etc. are not being 'shunned' by these cultural apartheid idiots?

They can count themselves luck that stupidity doesn't no remedy has been found against it yet.
17. Norwegians have nothing but disdain for the Arabs
Ezekiel Haim ,   London   (03.20.18)
18. The Norwegians are NAZI BASTARDS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

19. Feminism - Female Nazism/Jihadits
Tova ,   Canada   (03.21.18)
Feminists today have no respect for women. it is a militant organization which has been going on for years. These women have no regard for those women who actually worked hard for women rights. Today feminists are joke.

Israeli artists should not weaken themselves to these types of women. It is about time Israeli artists who believe in peace with the palenstians wake up and realize how foolish they have been.

Israeli artists who think they are helping palenstians don't even they are actually selling themselves and denying their freedom and future generations.

This is another example who foolish liberalism is.
