Headline: “Shabiba [Fatah youth movement] to hold exhibition at Al-Quds University’
“The Shahid Yasser Arafat unit of [Fatah’s] Shabiba student movement, yesterday ended a week-long artistic exhibition on the campus of the Al-Quds University in Abu Dis, commemorating the 46th anniversary of the establishment of the Fatah movement and the modern Palestinian revolution.
The exhibition, entitled ‘Pioneers of the Cause’ and visited by hundreds of students and visitors, included a number of sections, bearing the names ‘Shahid (Martyr) Yasser Arafat section’, ‘Intifada section’, 'Nakba (i.e., “Catastrophe” - reference to the creation of the State of Israel) section’, ‘Dalal Mughrabi section’, and ‘Fatah section’. The sections included dozens of stickers, photographs and diverse artistic models reflecting the major stages in the development of the Palestinian cause and the fighting path of some of its symbols and leaders…
Anas Abu Al-Roub, head of the Student Council at Al-Quds University in Abu Dis, praised the efforts of the university’s students in general, and the student Shabiba movement in particular, noting the importance of such exhibitions for the revival of the national memory. Abu Al-Roub said, ‘We must preserve our people’s shining and glorious history, and the revolution and the Shahids, and we must maintain the principles for which our Shahids, prisoners and the injured made their sacrifices.’”

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.
