Norway says aid may have gone to Palestinian terrorists Ramallah provided “incorrect information” about money paid to Palestinians jailed in Israel for deadly attacks, Oslo foreign minister says | March 14, 2013, 9:44 am | JTA | The Palestinian Authority misled Oslo when it claimed Norwegian aid money was not used to reward the murderers of Israelis, Norway’s foreign minister said. Espen Barth Eide said Monday in a statement that “it is unfortunate that the incorrect information obtained from the Palestinian Authority was communicated to the Parliament.” The statement was quoted in an article by the daily Dagen. Anders Anundsen, a lawmaker for the Progress Party, said the government has long claimed that Norwegian aid did not go to Palestinians who are incarcerated in Israeli jails for murders and terrorist activities. The Palestinian Authority has pledged monthly payments to Palestinian prisoners in Israel since 2003 and raised payments by as much as 300 percent in 2011, according to Israel’s Channel 2 television network. Eide’s statement came after the ministry received new information that revealed “major difference to what we have assumed, according to earlier information we received from the PA,” the minister’s statement said. Norway’s foreign ministry brought up the subject last week during a meeting between its representatives and Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Salam Fayyad, according to Eide. “In this meeting we also took up the dispensation and the level of subsidy for the prisoners, and we clearly expressed that we found this to be problematic,” Eide said. “We also noted the new information on this issue differs from earlier information provided by the PA. We also stated that we find this unfortunate.” Eide said the ministry was waiting for clarifications from Ramallah. Norwegian aid to the Palestinian Authority came under public scrutiny in Norway last month following a documentary by the NRK public broadcaster showing that aid went to inciting hate against Israel. Norway, one of the Palestinians’ strongest supporters in Europe, has contributed more than $50 million a year to the Palestinian Authority since 2008.We're angry beyond words about the bloodless hypocrisy of the European governments and their civil and political servants who have connived and conspired - and continue to do so - for years to provide essential funding to some of the deadliest terrorist organizations in the world.
And let it be clear: there has been no shortage of evidence all along. They simply ignored it and continue to ignore it. For instance, all the articles we wrote and that are listed below were based on open-source, publicly-accessible information. If we could find the data, so could they:
