America's entanglement with Israel

Pro-Israeli EDL spokesman: “Those Norwegians” can’t be trusted

An August 13, 2010 report in Haaretz on the anti-Muslim English Defense League’s affinity for extremist Zionism describes its leading spokesman’s spite towards Norwegians over their government’s role in hosting the Oslo Accords:

Along with its activity vis-a-vis the Muslim minority in Britain, the EDL takes a special interest in the Middle East and the Israeli-Arab conflict. [Alan] Lake puts forward several rhetorical questions, such as whether there was any point in the Oslo process, because he says “those Norwegians” can’t be trusted.

When asked about a mainstream Jewish group’s criticism of Jewish involvement with the extremist English group, Roberta Moore, a Brazilian-born IDF veteran and the then head of the EDL’s Jewish division replied:

They think the league is exploiting us, while it is really we who initiated the Jewish division. If anything, we are exploiting them.
