Today, I intend to mention a few things that have happened in the world recently. This will probably be my last update for a while – do not expect me to post anything more until the end of next week. I will take a week off from today for personal reasons. Happy reasons. Anyway, let’s not digress any more now.
Let’s start with Norway. There is an event in the oil kingdom called Operation Day’s Work. This event, which also is organized in Sweden (actually, it started in my birth country of Sweden), is organized by the School Student Union of Norway The event idea is that students work for one day and that the income from that work goes to people in poor countries, organized by Operation Day’s Work. I myself participated when I was 13 years old in Sweden. As far as I know, the School Student Union of Norway is very leftist. However, their website does not say much about their politics – but it does have a picture of a clenched fist. You don’t have to be Einstein to get this symbolism, right?
This year, there has been some controversy surrounding Operation Day’s Work. Last week, on 8/15/2018, Erwin Teigen, 18 years old, from Nordland county in the north of Norway declared on his Facebook page that he deserts Operation Day’s Work. The reason? Teigen was a member of the group planning the operation in his area. During the planning, he found a murky undertone of anti-semitism and anti-zionism. Reportedly, Operation Day’s Work wants to give the incomes from one day’s work of Norwegian students to the Norwegian organization KFUK-KFUM Global (YWCA-YMCA Global), which is an organization that boycotts Israel. Teigen reported about what he had heard during the planning of this year’s Operation Day’s Work day: “In this seminar we got to the addresses we are to hold around schools in Norway. These addresses holds a murky undertone of anti-semitism and anti-zionism. Hamas and their actions are rarely mentioned, while Israel is accused of apartheid, racism and they are criticized for their wish to be a Jewish state”. Teigen continued by writing: “Why should the Jews not be allowed to have their own state, on equal footing with the numerous Muslim states around them? As the numberous Christian states in the world? Are not the Jews as valuable as Muslims and Christians? Those were questions that popped up in my head during the lectures”.
I wish I had been as wise as Erwin Teigen when I was 18 years old. He is absolutely right. I would like to add that Norway used to be one of Israel’s best friends, and then Norway found oil. I do not believe this was a coincidence. The oil was a blessing for being on Israel’s side. (See Genesis, chapter 12, verses 1-3.) In recent decades, Norway has become less friendly with Israel, sadly. Norway’s recent problems with e.g. cars being set on fire could be a direct result of this. Sadly, the Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg has declared her support of Operation Day’s Work. Solberg was leader of Operation Day’s Work in her youth. Conrad Myrland, director of the organization Med Israel for Fred (With Israel for Peace) also recently wrote about this.
In Sweden, the Sweden Democrat Karl Robbjens was physically abused in Gothenburg by a man who looked like he could be of Middle Eastern background.
I have watched the video, recorded by Robbjens himself, and the man claims that the Sweden Democrats are fascists, and that Robbjens threatens him when he starts filming the man after having hit Robbjens in the face. Robbjens, by the way, is himself brown-skinned. Not that I care, but it might be provoking to leftists to see someone looking like him promoting the Sweden Democrats publicly. According to a Facebook video by Karl Robbjens, people from the Left Party watched and laughed when he was hit in the face.
South Africa / Trump / Pampeo
Last but not least, I also want to mention that after South Africa started seizing white-owned farms, U.S. President Donald Trump has asked Mike Pompeo to look at South African land seizures and ‘large scale killing of farmers’. While most other leaders are silent, President Trump steps up. Thank God for U.S. President Donald Trump, and may the Lord save South Africa. South Africa needs revival, because the land-grabs are a direct result of Marxist ideas, ideas that could not have spread if South Africa would have been a Christian nation.
As I said, this will be the last you hear from me in a week – so I wish you all a very happy weekend, and God bless you all.
