My Mideast Punchlines: put the blame on the dame….

Norway demanded the PA return money it provided for a women’s centre after learning it was named after terrorist Dalal Mughrabi. She’s a Palestinian poster girl for terror, for her participation in the 1978 Coastal Road massacre, in which 38 Israeli civilians — including 13 children — were killed.

“The glorification of terrorist attacks is completely unacceptable, and I deplore this decision in the strongest possible terms. Norway will not allow itself to be associated with institutions that take the names of terrorists in this way. We will not accept the use of Norwegian aid funding for such purposes,” Norwegian Foreign Minister Borge Brende said in a statement.

 

Brende said that Norway had been unaware of the decision to name the centre after Mughrabi. He demanded that the country’s name be removed from the centre and that the funds it gave for construction be returned.

Good for you, Norway. It’s about time you took a rest from Israel-bashing to lay the blame where it really lies.
