Text on screen: “At first glance, one might think that this image is taken from a scene in a movie.
But in fact, it is [an image] of one of the symbols of the Palestinian revolution:
Muhammad Daoud Oudeh ‘Abu Daoud’ (i.e., terrorist, responsible for the murder of 11 people)
A member of the Fatah Movement Revolutionary Council and the PLO National Council (i.e., the legislative body of the PLO)”
Images are shown of training drills with weapons.
Text on screen: “He joined the ranks of Fatah early, in 1964
And participated in the first security course in its framework in 1968
And became one of the members of the leading group in the Palestinian security establishment
He oversaw the revolution forces in Jordan following the Karameh battle (see note below -Ed.)
And he took part in establishing the Black September organization (i.e., a secret branch of Fatah)”
An image is shown of a German police officer holding a machine gun during the Munich Olympics massacre hostage crisis.
Text on screen: “And he participated in planning and waging the Munich operation in 1972
Whose target was the Israeli occupation delegation participating in the Olympics
He was appointed as the military commander of the western Beirut area during the [Lebanese] Civil War
Paris arrested him in 1977 due to an extradition request of the German government
And he was released after the German authorities canceled the [arrest] order.”
A short footage is shown of Abu Daoud speaking and claiming his arrest was political.
Text on screen: “In 1981, Abu Daoud underwent an assassination attempt in Warsaw
And was wounded by seven bullets in various parts of his body
Which did not prevent him from pursuing the double agent who attempted to assassinate him.”
A picture of an elderly Abu Daoud is seen with the following quote of his directed at Israel.
Text on screen: “Today I am no longer capable of fighting you, but my grandson will be able to do so, and his grandsons will do so too after him”
Muhammad Daoud Oudeh (Abu Daoud) - Member of the terror organization Black September, a secret branch of Fatah, and mastermind of the murder of 11 Israeli athletes in the Munich Olympics massacre on Sept. 5, 1972.
The Karameh battle, or Al-Karameh - On March 21, 1968, Israeli army forces attacked the Fatah terror base in the town of Karameh in Jordan, from where terrorists had been launching attacks on Israel. Although Israel prevailed militarily, approximately 30 Israeli soldiers were killed, and Arafat used the event for propaganda purposes, declaring the battle a great victory that erased the disgrace of the 1967 Six Day War defeat.
Black September - a now inactive Palestinian terror organization and secret branch of Fatah, which was established by PLO Chairman Yasser Arafat in 1970 and was led by Arafat's deputy Abu Iyad (Salah Khalaf). Black September's terror attacks include the murder of 11 Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympics (Sept. 5, 1972), and the murder of two American diplomats in Sudan (March 1, 1973).
