"Following the expropriation of the right and will of the Palestinian people to name its institutions, and following the decision to change the name of the Dalal Mughrabi School to another name, the honorable homeroom teacher Maysoun Al-Sweit wrote a poem that expresses the degree of sadness that affected all of the residents of the region, and especially the educational staff and students of the school 😭 Hold on and ask Allah for help."

Text of poem in image:
"We are all Dalal
I swear that the heart is broken
I swear that the eye tears
How can it be that my name will be changed?
While it shines in the heavens
It is part of my life
How will you call me and I hear?
How will I accept this? How will I forget?
How will I agree and submit?
We are in a period of peace
And the drums of war are not being beaten
O Dalal (i.e., Dalal Mughrabi, terrorist who led murder of 37, 12 of them children), forgive us
Even in regards to names they oppress us
Your name remains in my heart
As an olive tree planted in the ground
It is a shining sun
Its light miraculously lights the world
It threatened an undefeated army
And forced the hangman to kneel
Take my body, take my image
And let my name shine
