Belgium funded school formerly named after terrorist murderer Dalal Mughrabi changes name and logo – logo now includes PA map presenting all of Israel as “Palestine”

Logo posted on the Facebook page of the Dalal Mughrabi Coed School

The name of the Facebook page has not been changed even though the school was officially renamed The Belgian School – Tala’ei Al-Janoub instead of the Dalal Mughrabi Coed School in August 2018. The Facebook page still features the name of terrorist Dalal Mughrabi, who led the murder of 37, 12 of them children.

The school's new logo (above right) contains the PA map of "Palestine" that presents all of Israel as "Palestine" together with the PA areas, covered by a Palestinian flag, an open book at the bottom of the map, and to its right, a face with a keffiya (Arab headdress) around it. At the top is the new name of the school: "The Belgian School – Tala’ei Al-Janoub." The school's previous logo (above left), containing a picture of terrorist Dalal Mughrabi, still appears in the photo album associated with the Facebook page as of Aug. 29, 2018.

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.

"The Belgian School – Tala’ei Al-Janoub" - School built with Belgian funding in Beit Awwa, Hebron district. Previously known as "The Dalal Mughrabi Coed School"\"Martyr Dalal Mughrabi Coed Elementary School"\"The Martyr Dalal Mughrabi Elementary School". PMW exposed that the school was named after terrorist Dalal Mughrabi in September 2017 and formally complained to the Belgian government, which immediately condemned the PA. In July 2018, PMW discovered the school was still named after Dalal Mughrabi and notified the Belgian government, which again condemned the PA. In August 2018 the PA changed the school's name to "The Belgian School - Tala'ei Al-Janoub" and gave the previous name to another school in the area, changing it from "The Beit Awwa Elementary School for Girls" to "The Martyr Dalal Mughrabi Elementary School." It also began construction of another school in the area, to be called "The Second Dalal Mughrabi Republic School and Kindergarten."
