Female Palestinian students’ “role model” is terrorist who led murder of 37
- Coordinator of Fatah's university committee for women says about terrorist murderer: "We learn leadership from her... Dalal Mughrabi is a role model, like other heroic female Martyrs in Palestine. We draw willpower and determination from her"
- Fatah student movement song honors Mughrabi and other terrorist murderers:
"Abu Iyad lives and is not dead, his soul is with us...
Abu Jihad lives and is not dead...
O Jaffa, Dalal [Mughrabi] liberated your land"
- Fatah official glorifies terrorist murderers: "May we triumph for Yasser [Arafat], [Ahmed] Yassin, Abu Ali Mustafa, and [Fathi] Shaqaqi; may we triumph for Jerusalem, the capital of the State of Palestine"
The presentation of Mughrabi as an example for imitation is not surprising as Palestinian Media Watch has documented numerous times that the PA has turned her into a role model for society. Terrorist Mughrabi's status as a "hero" among Palestinians was emphasized again recently when a center for women, which was funded by European money, was named after the murderer. Following PMW's exposure, Norway and Denmark withdrew their funding to the center.
Fatah's student movement Shabiba also honored murderer Mughrabi. In a music video Shabiba glorified Mughrabi as having "liberated Jaffa" and praised other terrorist murderers:
Promoting this message, Fatah Deputy Chairman and Fatah Central Committee member Mahmoud Al-Aloul posted the video with the following text added, also praising heads of terror organizations:
Al-Aloul's post followed shortly after US President Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital. Al-Aloul's call for a "Friday of rage" was one among many coming from PA and Fatah leaders, as PMW reported.
Similarly, Fatah Revolutionary Council member Muhammad Al-Laham listed terrorist Dalal Mughrabi among those "who are more honorable than all of us":
The following are the terrorists mentioned in the song by the Fatah youth movement Shabiba and by Deputy Chairman of Fatah, Al-Aloul:
Dalal Mughrabi – female Palestinian terrorist who 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.
Ahmed Yassin - Founder and former head of the terrorist organization Hamas. The Hamas movement is responsible for numerous terror attacks and the deaths of hundreds of Israeli civilians.
Abu Ali Mustafa - Secretary-General of the terror organization Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP). The PFLP, which rejected the Oslo Accords (1993), has planned and carried out numerous terror attacks against Israeli civilians since its founding in 1967 and throughout the Palestinian terror campaign between 2000-2005 (the Intifada).
Fathi Shaqaqi - Founder of the terror organization Islamic Jihad, which has carried out more than 1,000 terror attacks, murdering and wounding hundreds of Israeli civilians. Shaqaqi was killed in 1995 in an operation attributed to Israel but for which Israel never took responsibility.
Abu Iyad (Salah Khalaf) - PLO Chairman Yasser Arafat’s deputy, one of the founders of Fatah, and head of the terror organization Black September, a secret branch of Fatah. Attacks he planned include the murder of 11 Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympics (Sept. 5, 1972) and the murder of two American diplomats in Sudan (March 1, 1973). It is commonly assumed that his assassin, a former Fatah bodyguard, was sent by the Abu Nidal Organization, a rival Palestinian faction.
Abu Jihad (Khalil Al-Wazir) - was a founder of Fatah and deputy to Yasser Arafat. He headed the PLO terror organization's military wing and also planned many deadly Fatah terror attacks in the 1960’s - 1980’s. These attacks, in which a total of 125 Israelis were murdered, included the most lethal in Israeli history - the hijacking of a bus and murder of 37 civilians, 12 of them children.
Marwan Barghouti – Palestinian terrorist and member of the Palestinian Authority parliament who is serving 5 life sentences for orchestrating three shooting attacks in which 5 people were murdered: one attack on the Jerusalem-Maale Adumim road (June 12, 2001) in which Greek Orthodox monk Tsibouktsakis Germanus was murdered by terrorists Ismail Radaida and Yasser Ah'Rabai, another attack at a gas station in Givat Zeev near Jerusalem (Jan. 15, 2002) in which Yoela Hen was murdered by terrorists led by Mohammed Matla, and one shooting and stabbing attack at the Seafood Market restaurant in Tel Aviv (March 5, 2002) in which Eli Dahan, Yosef Habi, and Police Officer Sergeant-Major Salim Barakat, were murdered by terrorist Ibrahim Hasouna. When arrested by Israel in 2002, Barghouti headed the Tanzim (Fatah terror faction). After he was convicted and imprisoned, he was re-elected as a member of the Palestinian Authority parliament. On Dec. 4, 2016, he was elected to Fatah's Central Committee.
The following is a longer excerpt of Fatah Revolutionary Council member Muhammad Al-Laham's statement honoring terrorist Dalal Mughrabi and other terrorists:
Fatah Revolutionary Council member Muhammad Al-Laham: "Despite the difficulty in this situation, we Palestinians want nothing but resolve. [PA] President Mahmoud Abbas has said more than once in recent years that we are remaining here and not leaving. We have no scenario of a new exile, new displacement, or a new uprooting. This is our land in which we are remaining. This period is the time of Ahed Tamimi (i.e., Palestinian teenager who attacked Israeli soldiers). From Dalal Mughrabi (i.e., terrorist who led murder of 37, 12 of them children) and all of the female and male Martyrs (Shahids) who are more honorable than all of us - this is a production line that reaches my colleague [Fatah Revolutionary Council member] Kifah Harb who is speaking with you from the Balata [refugee] camp on the second screen, and she is a sister of heroes and the wife of Martyr Abdallah Daoud (i.e., terrorist responsible for many terrorist attacks), the Fatah hero, a son of the security establishment, an officer in the [PA] intelligence service, who the occupation forces accused of regularly recruiting male and female Martyrdom seekers, and especially Ayyat Al-Akhras (i.e., suicide bomber, murdered 2), a Martyr of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades (i.e., Fatah's military wing) that is affiliated with the Fatah Movement. Therefore, [the occupation forces] expelled him until he died as a Martyr in Algeria. This is the Palestinian people that holds all of the tools and all of the tricks to respond to the occupation's policy."
Abdallah Daoud was responsible for numerous terror attacks. He was one of the terrorists who stormed into the Church of the Nativity in 2002, continuing to fight against Israel for several weeks while using the monks and the religious site as a shield. He was deported to Cyprus and later Mauritania, and died in Algeria of natural causes.
Ayyat Al-Akhras - The youngest female Palestinian suicide bomber (aged 17). A member of Fatah, Al-Akhras carried out a suicide bombing attack near a Jerusalem supermarket on March 29, 2002, murdering 2 and wounding 28.
