Ramallah and El-Bireh District Governor Laila Ghannam: “The mother is the foundation, she is the education, she is the school… From the beginning, the Palestinian woman was a fighting rebel. She was Dalal Mughrabi (i.e., terrorist who led the murder of 37 people, 12 of them children). In the PLO and in the revolution there were and still are women. She was a Martyr, she was a prisoner, and she was the central figure in the house in the shadow of the man’s absence – her husband was a Martyr, prisoner, wounded, or wanted, and she always stood firm with her head high.”



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.
