On a visit billed as possibly the last effort his country will make to institute the two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Norwegian Foreign Minister Espen Barth Eide was in Jerusalem on Monday, where he met with Deputy Foreign Minister Zeev Elkin.

Elkin asked the foreign minister of the country where the 1993 Oslo Accords were signed to discourage the Palestinian Authority from taking unilateral steps that violate the agreement.

“If the Oslo agreement said specifically that the Palestinian Authority will not take unilateral steps to establish an independent state, and after about 20 years it goes to the U.N. and asks for recognition of a Palestinian state, who will ensure that if we sign an agreement they will uphold its conditions?” Elkin said, according to Israel Hayom.

“In the Oslo agreement as well the international community including Norway were guarantors that the agreement would be upheld and today we see that the Palestinians are being allowed to continue to take unilateral steps, that only distances us from a peace agreement. On this issue, the international community must insist that throughout the course of the negotiations, there will be no additional steps by the Palestinian Authority,” he said.

    The Saracens have conquered the Vikings (and most of the rest of Europe). The Norwegians have been cowed into silence by their growing, hostile Muslim community. Even if they wanted to speak out against Muslims having violated anything (especially the Oslo Accords), they won’t do so. But, given their history, would you expect them to stand up for Jews (Israel) under any circumstances?

    Oslo is dead, anyone who’s ever purchased a car and missed the payments can tell you, if you sign a deal and don’t keep your side, deal is dead and gone. Gaza is illegal, because the deal is dead. Lets not even talk about the fact that there is no single ruling party in Falestine, oops I’m not Arab, I can pronounce “P”s, Palestine.
