At a recent ceremony at the El-Bireh High School for Girls, school principal Nida Abd Rabbo announced that promoting terrorist murderer Dalal Mughrabi as a role model to female students is an "educational responsibility":

"It's [the Al-Yasser Cultural Forum's] goal is to strengthen the affiliation with Palestine and its history, and to adhere to the Palestinian identity, because this is a great educational responsibility. The forum's goal is also to return the glory to the fighting Palestinian girls and women such as Dalal Mughrabi and others who sacrificed their lives for Palestine, and also to provide information and knowledge to these female students during recesses..."

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.

PA Minister of Education Sabri Saidam and Fatah Movement Central Committee member Jamal Muhaisen were also present at the ceremony.
Palestinian Media Watch has documented that 5 PA schools are named after terrorist Dalal Mughrabi and dozens of other schools are named after other terrorist murderers. 

At a ceremony celebrating International Women's Day, Secretary-General of the PA Chairman Abbas' office Tayeb Abd Al-Rahim also chose murderer Mughrabi as an example, pointing out that her role as leader of the attack is "testimony" of gender equality within Fatah:

"From the outbreak of our revolution in 1965, the outlook of the Palestinian National Liberation Movement - Fatah - has been clear in its social aspect; it saw no difference between women and men, and Dalal Mughrabi who led men is testimony to this."

Marking the 40th anniversary of Mughrabi's attack, Fatah posted a video praising her, focusing on the fact that
the leader of the attack was a woman

The Fatah Movement also honored terrorist Mughrabi in Gaza by naming an organizational course after her. The official PA daily reported that "dozens of leaders of the western Gaza Fatah branches" participated in the Dalal Mughrabi course. [Official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, March 23, 2018]

Glorifying female terrorists was a repeating Palestinian theme for International Women's Day:
"District Governor of Qalqilya Rafe' Rawajbeh participated in the ceremony [for International Women's Day]... The district governor expressed his appreciation for the Palestinian women's giving, their sacrifice, and their participation in the national struggle in all of its stages. He mentioned hero Dalal Mughrabi- the anniversary of whose death as a Martyr (Shahida) is now - as a symbol of women rejecting the occupation."

"The Fatah Movement completed a series of organizational courses to instill ideology that began on the anniversary of the outbreak of the Palestinian revolution and ended on the anniversary of the Al-Karameh battle. The first course was named after Martyr (Shahid) Ahmad Musa (i.e., terrorist, involved in first Fatah terror attack), while the second course was named after Martyr Dalal Mughrabi (i.e., terrorist who led murder of 37, 12 of them children). Dozens of leaders of the western Gaza Fatah branches participated in these courses."

The Al-Karameh battle - On March 21, 1968, Israeli army forces attacked the town of Karameh in Jordan, where Fatah terrorists had been launching attacks on Israel. Although Israel prevailed militarily, Arafat used the event for propaganda purposes, declaring the battle a great victory that erased the disgrace of the 1967 Six Day War defeat.

Ahmad Musa - known among Palestinians as the "first Martyr of the modern Palestinian revolution." He was killed by a Jordanian army patrol on his way back to Jordan after the first Fatah terror attack against Israel, the attempted bombing of Israel's
National Water Carrier on Jan. 1, 1965.
