A petition calling for an institutional cultural and academic boycott of Israel has gathered 100 signatories of Norwegian academics, writers, musicians, other cultural workers, and sports celebrities, including Egil “Drillo” Olsen, the coach of the Norwegian national soccer team.

After the Freedom Flotilla massacre, public opinion polls in Norway showed support for the full boycott of all Israeli products skyrocketing to 42%. The state sovereign fund, the 3rd largest in the world, with over $300 billion, has already divested from two major Israeli companies for their involvement in violating international law: Elbit Systems and Africa Israel.
