    Norway Considers a Birthday Gift for Finland: The Peak of an Arctic Mountain

    Norway is pondering an unusual birthday gift for its neighbor Finland: an Arctic mountain peak.

    Mount Halti is the highest mountain in Finland, but its 4,478-foot summit is in Norway.

    To help commemorate the 100th anniversary of Finland’s declaration of independence from Russia on Dec. 6, 1917, a group of Norwegians is urging the government to move a point on its border with Finland some 490 feet to the north and 650 feet to the east. Halti’s peak would become the highest point in Finland, surpassing a spur of the mountain that tops out at 4,344 feet.

    “There are a few formal difficulties, and I have not yet made my final decision,” Norway’s prime minister, Erna Solberg, told the national broadcaster NRK this week. “But we are looking into it.”

    The proposed gift is the brainchild of Bjorn Geirr Harsson, a 76-year-old retired employee of the Norwegian Mapping Authority, who came up with the idea in 1972, when he was taking measurements while flying across the border.

    “I was taken aback by why on earth they had not received this peak,” he told NRK last year. “We would not have to give away any part of Norway. It would barely be noticeable. And I’m sure the Finns would greatly appreciate getting it.”

    The straight line that marks the Finnish-Norwegian border in the area of Mount Halti — drawn in the mid-18th century — is “geophysically illogical,” Mr. Harsson said.

    Geir Leiros, the mayor of Kafjord, a Norwegian community near the border, supports the hard-to-wrap gift. “It will cost us so little, nothing in fact, but I believe it would mean a lot to the Finns,” he said.

    The potential border redrawing has been largely embraced in Finland, a proud if somewhat flat nation that had been part of the Russian Empire for more than a century, until Russia’s two revolutions in 1917: one that overthrew the czarist regime and a second that established a Bolshevik republic that became the Soviet Union.

    A Facebook page that supports the proposed gift has garnered more than 15,000 “likes.”

    Some are protesting that we give away some land, but it's not exactly much area. I'm all for it. Finns are good people and we should strengthen our ties in northern Europe. If we could get away from Schengen, NATO and the EU (Those of us who are members of those) we could focus on making a strong alliance for ourselves. But I don't really see it happening anytime soon sadly.

    That's how it starts, give away a useless piece of land to a friend and soon you'll be conceding the whole country to a hostile force.
    Anglo-Saxons are forbidden the same level of racial consciousness of other groups (even amongst Whites).

    While our many accomplishments are forgotten, there is no end of blaming Anglo-Saxons for the problems and inadequacies of the world (White & non-white alike).

    We've always been friends with the Finns and we helped them against the Russians. This is a tiny bit of land. It's not like Sweden or Finland would ever attack us.

    I'm not talking about Sweden or Finland, I'm talking about the enrichment, soon they'll want their own autonomous Sharia state.

    Yes, parts of Oslo are already in enemy hands. I'm glad I moved away 15 years ago.
