The Ministry  of Foreign Affairs accuses Norway of financing “anti-Israeli incitement” following the financing of a trip for children who take part in the Monologues from Gaza play to New York, and of a documentary film named Tears from Gaza. In response to the protests of the Israeli embassy in the country the Norwegian government replied that it does not intend to intervene in the contents of creative works.
