Danish Foreign Minister Anders Samuelsen said he was outraged that the Women’s Technical Affairs Committee (WATC), a Palestinian NGO “which claims to work for human rights,” has “not only glorified a terrorist but also abused the trust of a generous people like the Danish.”

“It is completely unacceptable and I can’t distance myself strongly enough from it,” Samuelsen said. “Denmark and Danish tax kroner (the country’s currency) must under no circumstances be used for anything that glorifies or promotes terrorists in any way. Therefore, we will now also demand that the WATC return the Danish aid.”

Additionally, the Danish Foreign Ministry said it has ceased all cooperation with the “Martyr Dalal Mughrabi Center” due to the center’s withholding of “crucial information” about its namesake, who masterminded a terror attack that killed 37 Israelis — including 12 children — in 1978.

“In one month, the Palestinian Authority honored 44 terrorists involved in the murder of 440 people,” said Marcus.
