PA lauds Fatah's terror history, glorifies terrorist mass murderers

PA and Fatah Chairman Mahmoud Abbas: “The achievements of our [Fatah] Movement and our revolution over more than 50 years of giving, struggle, and sacrifice – we cannot count them in a speech or a book, for Fatah was and still is one of the most prominent milestones in modern Palestinian history. A model of resolve, defiance, patience, vitality, and firm will, not only at the national level but also at the global level. Fatah was born from the womb of our people’s suffering in order to remove the historical injustice that befell it and erase the crimes that were committed against it. By doing so it has become an example and source of inspiration for all the honorable people in our nation and the free people in the world. Fatah… will remain victorious.”

Text on screen: “The anniversary of the outbreak of the Palestinian revolution”

This video was broadcast to mark the anniversary of Fatah. The beginning of Fatah is counted from Jan. 1, 1965, when it carried out its first terror attack against Israel, attempting to blow up Israel's National Water Carrier.

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.

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.

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.

Yasser Arafat – Founder of Fatah and former chairman of the PLO and PA. During the 1960s, 70s and 80s Arafat was behind numerous terror attacks against Israelis. Although he received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1994 together with then Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and then Israeli Minister of Foreign Affairs Shimon Peres “for their efforts to create peace in the Middle East" after signing the Oslo Accords peace agreement, Arafat launched a 5-year terror campaign - the second Intifada (2000-2005) – in which more than 1,000 Israelis were murdered. Arafat died of an illness in 2004.
