Head of Palestinian Women’s Union on Women’s Day: Female terrorist who led murder of 37 was “a role model”

Official PA TV program I Call You, on International Women's Day and female prisoners

Head of Palestinian Women’s Union Amal Hamad: "Dalal Mughrabi who was a role model led men and stood in the front line (i.e., terrorist who led murder of 37). Dalal established a state inside a bus, and waved a flag over the bus. She killed as many as she killed from among the occupation’s soldiers, not from among civilians (sic., all of the victims were civilians). She excelled in her leadership, her pioneering and her faith."
PFLP political bureau member and Director of the Women’s Research Center Maryam Abu Daqqa: "The Palestinian women created a triangle of horror: Laila Khaled from the air, Shadia Abu Ghazaleh from the land and Dalal Mughrabi from the sea."

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, killing 37 civilians, 12 of them children, and wounding over 70.

Laila Khaled - PFLP terrorist who participated in the hijacking of TWA flight 840 on Aug. 29, 1969 from Rome to Athens and the hijacking of El Al flight 219 on Sept. 6, 1970 from Amsterdam to New York. The second hijacking was averted by the pilot and security personnel on board. They shot Khaled’s accomplice, Patrick Argüello, who had killed one of the flight attendants. Khaled was overpowered and the plane landed in London where Khaled was handed over and held by British police until she was exchanged on Oct. 1, 1970 with hostages held by the PFLP.

Shadia Abu Ghazaleh was active in the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) terror organization and prepared bombs for many attacks.
