This story comes by way of the excellent Norway, Israel and the Jews blog, and gets full credit for bringing it to the light of day, NIJ is the one asking the question as to why NRK, -now infamously known for its collusion with known anti-Israel baiters and serial liars and dishonest journalists like, Sidsel Wold– hadn’t found the MEMRI org until now. Kudos to NIJ.
