Fatah secretary: Naming summer camp after terrorist Mughrabi "strengthens sense of belonging"
Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida - Aug. 5, 2010
: "Light of the Generations' Association concludes the second [summer] camp named after
(Martyr) Dalal Mughrabi”
"Mahera Al-Jamal [representative of the National Committee of Summer Camps] spoke about the active role of the National Committee in supporting and sponsoring such camps, and she delivered greetings from the General Coordinator, Mousa Abu Zaid [Mousa Abu Zaid is also the PA's Deputy Minister for Youth and Sports, -Ed.] .... Secretary of Fatah in Bethlehem, Yusuf Al-Aref, said that naming such summer camps after the
Dalal Mughrabi strengthens the sense of belonging and citizenship among Palestinian girls. ... The 'Freedom Flotilla' group at the camp put on a play named 'Dalal [Mughrabi] the Legend,' which was well-liked by the audience and was applauded, while the 'Tal Al-Rabia [Tel Aviv] and Jerusalem' group presented an impassioned folkdance. The song 'Returning to my country' moved those present; they expressed their admiration with a standing ovation. A participant in the camp, Batul Khader, concluded the camp by inviting the audience to join in the song, 'We are not terrorists.'"
Note: Dalal Mughrabi led the most lethal terror attack in Israel’s history in 1978, when she and other terrorists hijacked a bus and killed 37 civilians, 12 of them children.
