Song at Fatah event to honor high school graduates glorifies terror attack in which 37 civilians were killed
PA TV host: "A public ceremony is being held under the auspices of President Mahmoud Abbas..."
Words of song:
"No one outshines the Fatah member
He mounts his machine gun on the tripod
His eyes are to Al-Aqsa [Mosque] - the Fatah member...
They got off the boats near the [Israeli] shore
[to hijack an Israeli bus in 1978]
[Squad leader] Dalal [Mughrabi] fights and battles the soldiers
[37 Israeli civilians were killed]
Be safe, you defiant, oh Fatah member!
They went [ashore] as birds of prey,
the heroic Al-Saika (PLO unit)
The men of Yasser [Arafat], Al-'Asifa (Fatah unit)
The enemy's army fled trembling.
Let's hail Fatah!"
Note: Dalal Mughrabi led the most lethal terror attack in Israel’s history in 1978, when she and other terrorists hijacked a bus and killed 37 civilians, 12 of them children. A number of Fatah dignitaries attended the event.
