Good and bad terrorism

Why are we supposed to read that 1500 page thrash then be coerced to deny a guilt-by-being-read that is not ours?
It's not you, Mr. Pipes who is guilty for this tragedy, but the Norwegian Government.
First it is guilty for its crass negligence, But they are very self-satisfied of the performance of their police to prevent then stop the massacre, so I only can wish them good luck in the future.
Second, Norway's ambassador to Israel has insolently differentiated in an interview with Maariv between the "justified" terror against Jews in Israel and the heinous act terrorism in Norway. He went on to laud his Government high-level contacts with the terrorist Hamas and his support for breaking the blockade against importing rockets and ammunition into Gaza.
This is the main problem, The Government of Norway is brazenly using the "bad" terror in Norway to promote its agenda of active support for what it sees as "good" terror against Jews in Israel.
Beyond diplomatic support, Norway's oil money is also flowing both to the "humanitarian" wing of Hamas, to free money for Grads and Katyoushas purchase and also to a myriad of leftist NGO's that subvert and corrupt the democratic process in Israel.
We are already seeing how the awful act of Breivik is shamelessly instrumentalized by the Norwegian Government to politically smear those who oppose its policies inside and abroad.
We will see also creeping censorship against the domestic opposition associated with physical intimidation disguised as "solidarity" hooliganism and "multicultural" tolerance for domestic extremist Islamist goons.
