Would you name a kids’ summer camp after a murderer?
-The PLO would!
- The Dalal Mughrabi Summer Camp - named after murderer of 37
- The Omar Abu Laila Summer Camp - named after murderer of 2

Would you name a kids’ summer camp after the perpetrators of 9/11, the New Zealand mosque shooter, or the Pittsburgh synagogue killer?
You wouldn’t, right?
But the PLO readily names kids’ summer camps after murderers of Israelis.
At least 2 PLO summer camps for Palestinian children are named after such murderers this summer. Both are held under the auspices of the PLO Supreme Council for Sport and Youth Affairs.
One was named after the PA's role model terrorist murderer Dalal Mughrabi who led the most lethal terror attack in Israel’s history, when she and other Fatah terrorists hijacked a bus on Israel's Coastal Highway in March 1978, murdering 37 civilians, 12 of them children, and wounding over 70:

Posted text: “’In the name of Allah we will say our words, [in the name of] the revolution and the cause, in the name of our righteous Martyrs, in the name of the prisoners of freedom’ - with this shout the girls of the [summer] camp named after Dalal Mughrabi, which is being held in the Tubas district, received the supervisory staff of the [PLO] Supreme Council [for Sport and Youth Affairs], who are visiting the district in order to monitor the running of the summer camps.”

The other PLO summer camp honoring a murderer was named after Omar Abu Laila, a 19-year-old Palestinian terrorist who murdered 2 Israelis, including a rabbi who was the father of 12, in March this year:

Using summer camps to glorify terrorist murderers is not new to either the Palestinian Authority, PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah party, or the PLO, also headed by Abbas. Such summer camps have even been funded or sponsored by the UN's children's organization (UNICEF), as documented by PMW.
Omar Abu Laila - 19-year-old Palestinian terrorist who stabbed and murdered Israeli soldier Gal Keidan, and shot and murdered Rabbi Achiad Ettinger, a father of 12, at Ariel Junction on March 17, 2019. Abu Laila was killed on March 19, 2019, during an exchange of gunfire with Israeli soldiers who attempted to arrest him.
New Zealand shooting attacks - shooting attacks at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, on March 15, 2019, in which 51 worshippers were murdered, and 49 wounded. Australian Brenton H. Tarran, suspected of the shootings, has been charged with engaging in terror, 51 counts of murder, and 40 counts of attempted murder.
Pittsburgh shooting attack - shooting attack at a synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, in the US on Oct. 27, 2018, in which 11 worshippers were murdered and 6 wounded. Robert Gregory Bower, suspected of the shooting, faces charges including hate crimes, which can carry the death penalty. The shooting has not been officially designated a terror attack.
