Although the summer is over, the PA and Fatah continue what they call “summer camp activities” for youth that present terrorists as role models. At the PA Security Forces’ university, Al-Istiqlal University, the PA’s police administration and Fatah’s Shabiba High School Movement are teaching 50 female teenagers to see terrorist Dalal Mughrabi who led the murder of 37 Israelis as a role model. The teens, who are from schools in the area, participate in a camp named after the murderer, who together with other terrorists hijacked a bus full of Israeli civilians in 1978, murdering 25 adults and 12 children:

“The [Fatah] Shabiba High School [Movement] Committees, the student wing of Fatah’s Salfit branch, continued the summer camp activities at Al-Istiqlal University (i.e., PA Security Forces university) in Jericho, in cooperation with the [PA] police administration. Fifty young women from the Salfit schools are participating in the [training] camp, which is named ‘Class of Martyr Dalal Mughrabi’.”

At the end of the two-day camp the participants received certificates:

Member of Fatah’s Central Committee Tawfiq Tirawi and Fatah Salfit Branch Secretary Abd Al-Sattar Awwad both attended the graduation ceremony of the Fatah camp, at which the young female participants again wore military uniforms and Palestinian keffiyeh scarves:

These recent examples are not isolated. PMW has exposed that for decades the PA and Fatah have lauded murderer Mughrabi and the attack in 1978, which was the most lethal in Israel's history.

Among additional praise for Dalal Mughrabi in 2021, exposed by Palestinian Media Watch:

PMW reported on two “Sisters of Dalal Mughrabi Summer Camps” organized by the PLO Supreme Council for Youth and Sports and Fatah.

PA honored her as a role model for women on International Women’s Day, lauded her as “female fighter” and “courageous” on the anniversary of her attack, while a branch of the PA Ministry of Education had Palestinian teachers trained using material about murderer Mughrabi.

A Fatah official glorified Mughrabi as a “guiding light” while the movement  posted a video about her attack – “the operation” – calling her “the symbol of the Palestinian revolution”:

Dalal Mughrabi – female Palestinian terrorist who led the most lethal terror attack in Israel’s history, known as the Coastal Road massacre, in 1978, when she and other Fatah terrorists hijacked a bus on Israel's Coastal Highway, murdering 37 civilians, 12 of them children, and wounding over 70.
