Norway Gets Refund after Funding Center Named after Palestinian Terrorist – Rafael Medoff
Norway has secured the return of funds it gave to a Palestinian women’s center that was named in honor of a terrorist. Earlier this year, Palestinian Media Watch and NGO Monitor revealed that the Norwegian government helped finance a Palestinian Authority-affiliated women’s center in the West Bank town of Burqa, which had been named after Dalal Mughrabi, the leader of the 1978 Coastal Road massacre in Israel that resulted in the death of 38 Israeli civilians, including 13 children.
In response, Norwegian officials said they would demand the return of the funds and the removal of the Norwegian flag from in front of the center. The Norwegian Foreign Ministry this week confirmed it has received the $10,000 refund. (JNS.org)
