There are some debts that remain unpayable. One such obligation is to the Norwegian men and women of the World War II resistance who risked their lives in what became well-documented memories to destroy the Nazi heavy water — critical in the development of nuclear weaponry — facilities in their home country.
 
Had the brave Norwegians been unsuccessful, the outcome of the war might have been different.
 
Those heroic Norwegians should be credited with helping to save the world. That same moral spirit, however, seems to have left Norway. A recent news dispatch reports that those with Israeli passports who attempt entry into Norway are now turned away. Norway has certainly been no friend, especially of late, to Israel joining the world’s double standard chorus.
 
Meanwhile, another news dispatch reports that the number of Palestinian women murdered via so called “honor killings” doubled last year. The Palestinian Authority Penal Code allows for “extenuating circumstance that would allow such murders” according to a report released by the Palestinian Ministry of Women’s Affairs.
 
Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas said not a word. The usually vocally bombastic Palestinian Liberation Organization executive committee member Hanan Ashrawi bleated clich├ęd comments on the matter. Ashrawi was not as shrill when it came to the state-sanctioned murder of women as she is in her hatred of the Israelis, men or women. And those Norwegians? Not a word.
 
Because people once showed bravery to use their weapons and brains to battle the lowest forms of human behavior more than a half-century ago, it gives them no leave to act in the same way when murder of innocents is again the case. True, this is not atomic weaponry which could destroy cities and nations. Rather the refusal to cry out at the murder of women is more revealing.
 
We will all know who those self-righteous Norwegians really are on the day they speak loudly about honor murders. On that day they let humans who have Israeli passports into their nation.
 
Selective morality permits murders. Knowing right from wrong and speaking out when wrong is done is a call to action. Norwegian resistance fighters knew what they had to do. At great personal threat they took a stand. Today, their countrymen have disgraced their memories. A shame.
