PA daily on mastermind of Munich Olympics massacre: "His name shone brightly" during attack

"In its [Black September terror group's] ranks were many distinguished men and women, headed by the "Panther of Palestine," Salah Khalaf, 'Abu Iyad.' Abu Daoud was one of his prominent assistants. His [Abu Daoud's] name shone brightly in the German city of Munich in 1972, where the Olympics took place. Oh, how these events evolved into a violent drama of the most tragic kind... May Allah have mercy on this great Fatah fighter and patriot, Abu Daoud."

Note: Muhammad Daoud Oudeh, also known as Abu Daoud, planned the 1972 attack on Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympics. On Sept. 5, 1972, eight members of the Palestinian terror organization Black September broke into the athletes' village at the Munich Olympics. They kidnapped and ultimately murdered 11 Israeli athletes and coaches. Oudeh died in July 2010. His death received extensive coverage in the official PA media, and he was glorified by PA leaders as a hero and Shahid - Martyr.
