There is no limit to how far Palestinians are prepared to go to demonstrate their admiration for terrorists and express their Palestinian nationalism.

Having already named their daughter Dalal Mughrabi after the terrorist who led the most lethal attack against Israel, in which 12 children and 25 adult Israeli civilians were murdered, a couple from Gaza has now named their newborn triplets "Jerusalem," "Capital," and "Palestine."

These names were chosen to protest US President Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital in December 2017. The official PA daily reported on the naming, and quoted the father Nidal Al-Saiqli saying he called his children by these names "to emphasize that Jerusalem is the eternal capital of Palestine."

Reporting on the naming of the triplets, Fatah's Information and Culture Commission wrote that Dalal Mughrabi, the terrorist murderer after whom the couple's older sister is named, was a "self-sacrificing fighter... who together with a group of self-sacrificing fighters from the Fatah Movement took part in an attack that led to the deaths of Israelis four decades ago."

Palestinian Media Watch has documented that the PA and Fatah have turned terrorist murderer Dalal Mughrabi into a role model.

The following is the report on the naming of the triplets:

Headline: "'Dalal Mughrabi' became the sister of triplets Jerusalem, Capital, and Palestine today"
"A citizen from Khan Yunis in the southern Gaza Strip named his triplets Jerusalem, Capital, and Palestine, in response to the American decision to consider Jerusalem as Israel's capital, according to the AFP agency...
The couple already has a two-and-a-half-year-old daughter named Dalal after self-sacrificing fighter (Fida'iya) Dalal Mughrabi (i.e., terrorist who led murder of 37, 12 of them children), who together with a group of self-sacrificing fighters (Fedayeen) from the Fatah Movement took part in an attack that led to the deaths of Israelis four decades ago."

US recognition of Jerusalem as capital of Israel - On Dec. 6, 2017, US President Donald Trump formally recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital and instructed the State Department to begin preparations to transfer the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Trump added that the final borders of Jerusalem will be determined during negotiations.

Dalal Mughrabi 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.
