Norway Demands Palestinians Repay Funds, and U.S. Congress Cheers

34

Norway has demanded the return of funds used to pay for a Palestinian women’s center, which was then named in honor of a terrorist — and now, both members of U.S. Congress and leadership of America’s Jewish society are cheering the move.

The Norway demand came after Palestinian Media Watch and NGO Monitor found that the country actually helped pay for a women’s center that was tied to the Palestinian Authority — and that this center was named after Dalal Mughrabi.

The charred remains of the Israeli bus attacked by Palestinian terrorists in the 1978 Coastal Road massacre.

Mughrabi was the leader of a Palestinian terror attack in 1978.

Algemeiner has more:

Norwegian officials said that they would demand the return of the funds and the removal of the Norwegian flag from the banner in front of the center.

Last week, the Norwegian Foreign Ministry confirmed that it had received the refund. Spokesperson Gur Solberg told JNS.org: “The logo was removed immediately and the Norwegian support of $10,000 has been returned to the Norwegian Representative Office (NRO).” The NRO is Norway’s liaison to the PA.

Palestinian Media Watch Director Itamar Marcus called Norway’s action “a major breakthrough” that may signal “the beginning of a new European attitude towards the PA. For years, PMW has been showing European leaders what the PA was doing with their money to glorify terror, and the Europeans tried to excuse it. I hope this is ending now.”

Olga Deutsch, the director of NGO Monitor’s Europe Desk, praised the Norwegian government for “insisting that its funds be returned, and that its monies not be used to glorify a mass-murderer.” She said that the incident “can serve to increase awareness among donors” of the danger of funds intended for humanitarian purposes being used to “promote extremism and radicalization” in the Palestinian territories.

Norwegian political figures are applauding their government’s move, and urging it to take action in a similar case that has just come to light.

Jorund Rytman, a member of parliament for the Progress Party, which is part of Norway’s governing coalition, expressed concern about a PMW report that Norway gave $2,000 to the Yafa Cultural Center, in the PA-ruled city of Nablus. At the center’s recent dance competition, first prize was awarded to a performer whose song lyrics included, “We attacked the despicable Zionists/This is the day that Jihad is needed/Pull the trigger.” What’s more, the top three winners were presented with a golden map showing all of Israel labeled as “Palestine.”

Rytman said that “such activities are clearly contrary” to Norway’s goal of “peaceful coexistence,” and therefore, “I expect the Norwegian Foreign Ministry to recall the funds, like it did in the Dalal Mughrabi case.”

Hans Olav Syversen, a member of parliament for the opposition Christian Democratic Party, told JNS.org that he agrees with Rytman that Norway should demand return of its donation to the Nablus center, and would welcome a full review of Norwegian funding to the Palestinians.

Members of the US Congress are hailing Norway’s recent actions, and calling for Washington to take similar steps.

Congressman Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) recently introduced an amendment to an appropriations bill that would have prohibited US funds from being used by the PA to publicly honor terrorists. The amendment was disqualified by the House Rules Committee on a technicality, but Sarah Stern — the president of the Endowment for Middle East Truth (EMET) — said that she and her colleagues will be working with members of Congress to reintroduce a similar amendment “at the earliest opportunity.”

A spokesperson for the House Committee on Foreign Affairs told JNS.org that committee chair, Congressman Ed Royce (R-Calif.), “strongly agrees that US funds should not be used to honor Palestinian terrorists,” and would be open to a Congressional study to determine if any of the Palestinian institutions it currently assists are named after terrorists.

Congressman Peter Roskam (R-Ill.), co-chair of the House Republican Israel Caucus, said that he “applauds Norway” for its action, and is urging the US and the international community to ensure that all donations “are not used to breed future generations of Palestinians committed to violence and terror.”

Prominent voices in the US Senate are also talking about the issue.

An aide to Senator Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said that Corker is “strongly opposed to US assistance being used to recognize anyone for terrorist acts,” and “is open to additional measures” by Congress to ensure that doesn’t happen.

Leading Democrats are also taking a similar stance. Marisa Kaufman, the spokesperson for Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), told JNS.org that “Senator Schumer believes it is abhorrent for the Palestinian Authority to honor or provide payments to those who have committed acts of terrorism against Israelis, Americans and others.”

Leaders of several major American Jewish organizations see Norway’s action as a precedent.

“We commend the Norwegian government’s decision,” said B’nai B’rith International CEO and Executive Vice President, Daniel S. Mariaschin. “All defenders of human rights and decency should condemn the glorification of terror. … We urge Congress to help end this practice by restricting US aid to the Palestinians” so that money cannot be used to fund institutions that are named after terrorists.

Betty Ehrenberg, executive director for North America at the World Jewish Congress (WJC), told JNS.org that the WJC applauds Norway’s “vigilance.”

“Civilized societies must not only unequivocally condemn terrorism, but also actively combat it through concrete actions, as demonstrated by Norway in this case,” she said.

AIPAC spokesman Marshall Wittmann said that his organization likewise supports “a prohibition on the use of US funds for the abhorrent practice of honoring Palestinian terrorists.”

    Not sure what Congress is cheering about. The 10 grand probably came from funds given to the PA by Congress…

    I am so sick of the SWAMPERS being hypocrites.
    Why don’t they stop passing AID to Palestine?
    They are just as guilty!

    • Bradley Lexvold

      Seen a clip on this once and they said that the foreign aid package gets voted on for all nations at once, so there is no way to line item anything. Politicians complain about it, but do nothing. There is only one thing to make remedy, start over.

        How convenient for the muslum religious apartheid states and outright muslum terrorist states (cough, Pakistain, cough Paleswine Authority) being funded by the Islamic Puppet States of N. America.

  • Suresh

    you can thank Andreas Brevik who woke up Norwegians to the growing Islamic menace aided by left/Liberal loons and they voted them out and Norway is led by more pragmatic Leaders.

    Unless sweden wakes up they will continue to see muslim only zones grow where Firemen and police fear to tread http://bit.ly/2gTuUw2

  • Mahou Shoujo

    Good, now, hopefully more nations and organizations will stop funding terrorism. This is the start of something grand.

    • Dennis

      I agree with your comment, but how can the authorities that grant foreign aid be able to determine when our attempt to help impoverished people is being limited to charitable use only? I do not believe that we can determine that accurately, and I believe that all such grants should stop until the PA and Hamas authorities first reject the terrorists conduct and the call for Jihad. Since that will never happen, granting aid to those groups should end, in my opinion. To support terror and the continuing attempt to wipe Israel off the map is clear grounds for a total cutoff of grants to these horrible thinking people.

        Giving away money we don’t really have, too, and often with corrupt motives–e.g. the Trudeau government giving public cash to the Clinton Foundation (which conceivably could do a tit for tat to the Trudeau Foundation at some point). Leave it to the private sector to give money away.

        • satcatchet

          And don’t forget the billions Obama flew to Iran on those C-130’s. What is that money being used for?

            Lol, probabley!

    • Bradley Lexvold

      This could be more of having a family connection of Norway with Israel. Some historians suggest that Norwegians are the Tribe of Asher, making them kin to Jews. Tribe of Asher was descendants of Joseph who married an Egyptian and they had white skin. Or so the story goes.

      • Mahou Shoujo

        Any reason to reduce the influence of palestinian terrorist is good.

  • Tilt

    With all the muslim carnage going around in Europe this token $10K retraction (Norway and all other pro-Muslim Europeans are showering the Palestinians with hundreds of millions of dollars annually) looks like lip service to silence the Israelis / US Congress

    Now that the Russians / Iranians / Kurds / Americans are on the verge of finishing ISIS in Syria, (weeks to few months) many remaining ISIS terrorists (tens of thousands of them in aggregate) will flee the war fields of the Middle East and head westward to Europe… Maybe some more Islamic mayhem will finally knock some sense into the numb skulls of Europe

  • santashandler

    Before Norway pats itself on the back for standing up to the supporters of terrorism, it better get tough all around. They still have an immigration problem in their own backyard. They’re still soft on going after immigrants who commit crimes. So, before they prop themselves up as the european leader in stomping out terror supported organizations, perhaps they should first take a look at themselves and realize how they have supported them for so long, then enact policies to forbid those practices from happening again, then act on them.

    How about cutting off the $100’s of millions of UN dollars for infrastructure, that’s funneled to build Hamas bunkers ?!!!

  • Lukas Lumbantobing

    Greetings from Indonesia.

    Let me ask something. I recently discuss this “honoring terrorism” issue with my fellow countrymen online, and one of them said those palestinians are resistance fighters with Arab nationalism as it’s main ideology and do not always correlate it with Jihad. What do you think? Is so called secular Arab nationalism/Pan-Arabism or it’s variants such as Ba’athism can be separated with Islamic Jihad or it has been too intermingled and inherent with Arab nationalism? Thank you for your explanation.

    Death to Jihad (yes, I am a zionist in the broadest sense of the term which means respecting the Israelis right to exist as a state).

    • Mahou Shoujo

      No matter what name or cult it disguises itself as, the terrorists who are called “resistance fighters” define enemies by the religion they belong to. The foundation of pan arabism is based on the qur’an and sharia. This is islam, islam is based on lies, maintains itself on violence using death to impose itself wherever possible

      • Lukas Lumbantobing

        That means Saddam Hussein, Assad family, or Gamal Abdul Nasser back then were also a Jihadi?

        • Mahou Shoujo

          Yes, though the term was not in common usage back then.

      • IzlamIsTyranny

        Muslums are never resisting anything. Muslums are killing people to take away the civil rights and liberties of other people and replace them w/Shari’a.

    • IzlamIsTyranny

      What about those 200,000 to 800,000 assorted kafir al najjis slaughtered by your fellow muslum ape countrymen in the 1970’s allahtard? Why aren’t you recognizing that genocide? What about the ongoing ethnic cleansing of W. Papua New Guinea allahtard? Anything to say about that? Fcuk Indonesiastan. Long live Burma.

      • Lukas Lumbantobing

        First thing first, do you think I am a muslim?

        • IzlamIsTyranny

          87% of Indonesia (spit) is muslum so it’s an excellent bet.

          • Lukas Lumbantobing

            This time you are wrong. I’m one of the minorities (Protestant Christian).

            My name, Lukas, means Luke in english (A christian sounding name).

          • IzlamIsTyranny

            I apologize and you have my sympathies for living in that muslum cesspool state.

          • Lukas Lumbantobing

            But be warned. I might need to fight you if your country bombards mine.

  • satcatchet

    This doesn’t make any sense. The United States of America is on the brink of war with NORKO but doesn’t see the real threat to our nation, Islam, shariah, muslims, BLM, KKK, ANTIFA?
