After many years, Norway suddenly does something right

As many familiar with the time Yitzhak Rabin capitulated to the PLO know, Norway was one of the main supporters of the pact. But now, after nearly a quarter century, it looks like the politicians in Norway are waking up and recognizing reality:
Norway on Sunday demanded that the Palestinian Authority reimburse it for funds donated to a women's center on the West Bank because the center was named after a female terrorist who took part in an attack that killed 37 Israelis.

The Norwegian Foreign Ministry said the country "will not allow itself to be associated with institutions that take the names of terrorists."

The women's center in Burka, northwest of Nablus, was named for Dalal Mughrabi, a Fatah operative who died participating in the 1978 Coastal Road massacre, in which a group of 11 Palestinian terrorists hijacked a civilian bus carrying Israeli families on an outing. Thirteen children were among those killed.

Norwegian Foreign Minister Borge Brende issued a harsh statement saying the center had received funding from Norway via the Palestinian Election Commission and U.N. Women to promote participation of women in elections.

"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," Brende said.
This is incredible. Years before, they were most hostile to Israel. This is a significant turn around on Norway's part, and a good sign from Europe. There's more on the subject here.

Update: and in case I didn't mention, the UN's also withdrawing their support for the center. Even so, they still have a lot of repairs to make, if they truly must still function, and have to start removing countries like Saudi Arabia and Iran from their human rights councils, since they still violate human dignity on a daily basis.
