Palestinian daily reports that PMW caused Norwegian city to consider cutting sister city ties with Nablus

Al-Quds, Palestinian daily  |
Headline: "An Israeli report caused the severing of relations between Nablus and a Norwegian city"
"A local TV reporter's [television] appearance in Nablus next to an Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades' monument led to a demand to sever sister city [ties] with a Norwegian city.
According to Norwegian newspapers, the city of Stavanger called to withdraw from the sister cities [agreement] which it signed in 2011, due to 'terror glorification in TV footage of a Palestinian reporter against the background of an Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades' monument.'
The monument commemorates the anniversary of the [death of] the Brigades' General Commander Naif Abu Sharakh, who died as a Martyr in 2006. It was made from a slab of marble in the shape of a map of Palestine (the map includes all of Israel -Ed.).
A report published by an Israeli research center [Palestinian Media Watch] which monitors Palestinian media outlets, denounced the sister city [relations] between a Norwegian city and the city of Nablus which 'honors terrorists.'
The report stated (sic., the PMW report quoted Norwegian Councilman Danielsen who stated:) that the use of a whole map of Palestine in the monument means that 'Abu Sharakh planned to expel the Israelis and settle the Palestinians in their place, and that a map of the [areas] under Palestinian control was not employed, which means that [Stavanger's other] sister city - the Israeli city of Netanya - may be a legitimate target for Palestinian resistance (i.e., terror).'"
