Encyclopedia

Friends of Palestine in the Parliament of Norway (Norwegian: Palestinas Venner på Stortinget) is a pro-Palestine caucus group consisting of members of the Parliament of Norway (Stortinget).

The initiative to form the group was taken in late 2007, and was modelled after the pro-Israel group Israels Venner på Stortinget.[1] After the 2009 election, the group convened. Torbjørn Røe Isaksen joined the groups for support of both Israel and Palestine, and is also the only member from a non-socialist or non-social democratic party.[2] The leader of Palestinas Venner is Anette Trettebergstuen.[2]

In late November 2009 the group had 29 members. The current members are:[2]
