PA daily glorifies slain terror organization Black September leader as a "Martyr" and the "Red Prince"

Headline: “41 years since the death as a Martyr of the Red Prince [Ali Hassan Salameh]”

“At 3:37 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 22, 1979, a powerful explosion rocked Beirut, and the target was Palestinian leader Martyr Ali Hassan Salameh ‘Abu Hassan’ (i.e., commander of operations of the Black September terror organization).

Salameh died as a Martyr together with four of those accompanying him after then [Israeli] occupation Prime Minister Golda Meir said: ‘Find this monster and kill him’ (sic., PMW could find no record of such a statement)…

His [Salameh’s] name is connected to many quality operations (i.e., terror attacks), such as sending explosive packages from Amsterdam to many Mossad agents (Israeli Secret Intelligence Service) in Europe… and also the Munich operation (i.e., the Munich Olympics massacre, 11 murdered; see note below) that was carried out by the Black September organization, which kidnapped a number of Israeli athletes and killed some of them.”

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 on Sept. 5, 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.

The Munich Olympics massacre - terrorist attack perpetrated by the Palestinian terror organization Black September, a secret branch of Fatah, during the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich, in which they murdered 11 members of the Israeli Olympic team.
