Women are "partners" in terror, boasts PA minister of women’s affairs, proving gender equality "especially in matters of national struggle"

Official PA TV program Palestine This Morning, on Palestinian Women’s Day




PA Minister of Women’s Affairs Amal Hamad: “The first women’s committee was on Oct. 26, 1929, in the shadow of the Al-Buraq Rebellion (i.e., the 1929 Hebron Massacre and accompanying riots), the mighty rebellion in which great Martyrs died who are immortalized by history, including Muhammad Jamoum, Fadi (sic., Fuad) Hijazi, and Ataa Al-Zir (i.e., murderers) – the mighty rebellion in which the women were partners in the battle of resolve and defiance, and nine female Martyrs died in it…

We don’t think that there is a difference [between the genders] in the Palestinian public, especially in matters of the national struggle, and we emphasize that we are all hand in hand. This is always the slogan, and the proof of this is what I said about Muhammad Jamjoum and Ataa Al-Zir – I said that there were nine female Martyrs. And we speak about Dalal Mughrabi (i.e., terrorist who led murder of 37, 12 of them children) and the Martyrs of the [Fatah] Central Committee, and there is a long list and there are also female prisoners in the occupation’s prisons. Therefore, we are going with [the men] hand in hand.”



Muhammad Jamjoum, Fuad Hijazi, and Ataa Al-Zir “committed particularly brutal murders [of Jews] at Safed and Hebron,” according to the report by British Government to the League of Nations. They were convicted of attacking British soldiers and murdering Jews in the 1929 Hebron Massacre, in which 65 Jews were murdered. They were executed by the British in 1930.


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.
