[Israeli] occupation Prime Minister Golda Meir said of Martyr (Shahid) Commander Abu Hassan Salameh: ‘Find that monster and kill it!’ (sic., PMW could find no record of such a statement)”

Ali Hassan Salameh - Palestinian terrorist and commander of operations in Europe of the Black September terror organization - a secret branch of Fatah - in the 1970s. He planned many terror attacks, including the attack on the Israeli team at the Munich Olympics in 1972, in which 11 Israeli athletes were murdered. Salameh was killed by a car bomb in Beirut on Jan. 22, 1979. Israel is thought to be responsible for his death, but has not officially taken responsibility for it.
