“Women can die in a more spectacular way than men die” - Fatah celebrates terrorist murderer Dalal Mughrabi

"Words of love to the one who wreaked havoc in the heart of the enemies.
She raised the flag of the [Palestinian] state, and it was the bravest victory.
The Fatah Movement – Syria Branch
The Committee for Instilling the Ideology and for Research.
This is the hero Dalal Mughrabi.
A sister of the free women and men.
For the 36th anniversary of her death as a Martyr.
Twelve men under the command of a woman named Dalal Mughrabi.
They succeeded in establishing Palestine after the world refused to recognize their right to establish it.
They boarded a bus from Haifa to Tel Aviv and turned it into the temporary capital of the State of Palestine.
And raised the flag of the white-green- red-black colors at the front of the bus, and sang, called out, and danced as school students do on trips.
When the Zionist forces surrounded them and helicopters chased them in order to overtake the bus with weapons, [Dalal and her men] blew it up and were blown up together with it.
For the first time in the history of revolutions a public bus turned into a fully sovereign independent republic for four hours.
It makes no difference how long this Palestinian republic existed; what was important was its establishment.
The name of the president of the first republic was Dalal Mughrabi.
Heroism has no gender.
Arab men must understand that they don't have a monopoly on the glory of life or the glory of death,
and women can love much more nobly than the way they love, and die in a much more spectacular way than they die..."

Narrator: "The will of Dalal to the comrades in arms and those bearing rifles:
My will to all of you, my brothers who bear rifles, begins with putting aside the secondary disputes, escalating the main dispute with the Zionist enemy, and directing the rifles – all of the rifles – toward the Zionist enemy.
The independent Palestinian decision making is protected by the rebels' rifles.
To all of the factions, to all of my brothers whoever they may be, I say:
Continue on the same path on which we walked."
"The Fatah Movement – Syria Branch; The Committee for Instilling the Ideology and for Research; Indeed this is a revolution until victory."

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.
