Fatah and PLO summer camp teaches children
to honor arch-terrorists who murdered hundreds
By Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik
A branch of Fatah's Shabiba youth movement has produced a video that shows "how Fatah teaches its children loyalty to the Martyrs' blood" at a summer camp for Palestinian kids, which was organized by the PLO Supreme Council for Sport and Youth Affairs.
In the video, children are chanting a song honoring several arch-terrorists who murdered hundreds, asking God to "have mercy" on former Iraqi president Saddam Hussein who massacred hundreds, former PA Chairman Yasser Arafat and his deputy Abu Jihad, founder of the Hamas terror organization Ahmed Yassin, and head of the Black September terror organization Abu Iyad. - all of whom orchestrated numerous terror attacks in which hundreds were murdered. The children are wearing T-shirts with the logo of the PLO Supreme Council for Sport and Youth Affairs and the logo of the 2019 Palestinian summer camps:
Text on screen: "The Fatah Shabiba [Youth Movement] Committee - Bethlehem Branch
This is how Fatah teaches its children loyalty to the Martyrs' blood"
Children: "Saddam Hussein - O God, have mercy on Saddam Hussein
Yasser Arafat - O God, have mercy on Yasser Arafat...
Ahmed Yassin - O God, have mercy on Ahmed Yassin
Abu Jihad - O God, have mercy on Abu Jihad...
Abu Iyad - O God, have mercy on Abu Iyad"

Palestinian Media Watch has reported extensively on Palestinian summer camps over the years, and how they are used to educate Palestinian youth against peace with Israel and to teach children to see terrorists as role models. Some camps have even been named after terrorist murderers, among them Abu Jihad who was responsible for attacks in which 125 Israelis were murdered, and Dalal Mughrabi who led the most lethal terror attack in Israel's history, known as the Coastal Road massacre, in 1978, when she and other Fatah terrorists hijacked a bus on Israel's Coastal Highway, murdering 37 civilians, 12 of them children, and wounding over 70.
Saddam Hussein - former President of Iraq, who was convicted by an Iraqi court and executed in 2006 for ordering the Dujail massacre in Iraq in which 148 people were murdered. In order to expedite his execution, it was decided not to prosecute him for other crimes he committed.
Yasser Arafat - Founder of Fatah and former chairman of the PLO and PA. During the 1960s, 70s and 80s Arafat was behind numerous terror attacks against Israelis. Although he received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1994 together with then Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and then Israeli Minister of Foreign Affairs Shimon Peres "for their efforts to create peace in the Middle East" after signing the Oslo Accords peace agreement, Arafat launched a 5-year terror campaign - the second Intifada (2000-2005) - in which more than 1,000 Israelis were murdered. Arafat died of an illness in 2004.
Ahmed Yassin - Founder and former head of the terror organization Hamas. The Hamas movement is responsible for numerous terror attacks and the deaths of hundreds of Israeli civilians.
Abu Jihad (Khalil Al-Wazir) - was a founder of Fatah and deputy to Yasser Arafat. He headed the PLO terror organization's military wing and also planned many deadly Fatah terror attacks in the 1960's - 1980's. These attacks, in which a total of 125 Israelis were murdered, included the most lethal in Israeli history - the hijacking of a bus and murder of 37 civilians, 12 of them children.
Abu Iyad (Salah Khalaf) - Palestinian terrorist, PLO Chairman Yasser Arafat's deputy, one of the founders of Fatah, and head of the terror organization Black September, a secret branch of Fatah. Attacks he planned include the murder of 11 Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympics (Sept. 5, 1972) and the murder of two American diplomats in Sudan (March 1, 1973). It is commonly assumed that his assassin, a former Fatah bodyguard, was sent by the Abu Nidal Organization, a rival Palestinian faction.
