Text on screen: “At first glance, one might think this image is taken from a scene in a movie. But in fact, it [shows] one of the symbols of the Palestinian revolution: Muhammad Daoud Oudeh ‘Abu Daoud’ (i.e., terrorist, responsible for murder of 11). A member of the Fatah Movement Revolutionary Council and the PLO National Council. He joined the ranks of Fatah early, in 1964… and became a member of the leading group in the Palestinian security establishment… He took part in establishing the Black September organization (i.e., Fatah terror organization). He participated in planning and directing the Munich operation in 1972 whose target was the Israeli occupation delegation participating in the Olympics."
