PA honors “role models of honorable and fighting women,” including murderer Dalal Mughrabi, for International Women’s Day

Official PA TV newsreader: “For [International Women’s Day] March 8, the Palestinians are remembering role models of honorable and fighting women, including Martyr Dalal Mughrabi (i.e., terrorist, led murder of 37, incl. 12 children), poet Fadwa Touqan, fighter Fatima Barnawi (i.e., terrorist, placed bomb in movie theater), and the first female Palestinian photographer Karima Aboud.”

Official PA TV reporter: “The Bride of Jaffa, the Martyr who established the Palestinian republic in the heart of the occupied territories, Dalal Mughrabi. She was known in her childhood for her revolutionary enthusiasm, joined the Fatah Movement after leaving the womb of the revolution, did a military course and trained with various types of weapons, and volunteered as a nurse in the Red Crescent. Fatah chose her to lead the Deir Yassin group composed of 12 self-sacrificing fighters to carry out the Kamal Adwan operation (i.e., terror attack) in 1978, and hijack a bus and bring it to the Israeli Parliament building with the hostages in the bus to force the occupation to release the Palestinian prisoners. Before it reached the Israeli Parliament (sic.), the occupation government appointed [then Israeli military commander] Ehud Barak to kill everyone on the bus (sic., to rescue the hostages) with tanks and planes. Dalal and her comrades died as Martyrs and the occupation killed the hostages themselves (sic.)… Maj. Gen. Fatima Barnawi… one of the most veteran female Palestinian prisoners… Fatima Barnawi carried out an operation to blow up a movie theater in Jerusalem.”

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.

Fatima Barnawi - Palestinian female terrorist who placed a bomb in a movie theater in Jerusalem in 1967. The bomb failed to explode. She was sentenced to life in prison but was released in 1977 after serving 10 years. In 2015, PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas honored Barnawi with the Military Star of Honor.

The photo PA TV added to illustrate the story of Barnawi is falsely attributed to her attack. The photo is from a car bombing in which 58 were murdered and 140 were wounded on Ben Yehuda Street, Jerusalem, on Feb. 22, 1948.
