Official PA TV song glorifies arch-‎terrorists Dalal Mughrabi, Abu Jihad, ‎Salah Khalaf, and Abu Ali Iyad

‎“Dear Palestinian, lift your head high‎
In January of ’65 Fatah’s rebels set out
to liberate you, Palestine, ‎
and the commander was Yasser Arafat.‎

We won’t lose our strength and we won’t ‎soften
Until land and home return,‎
By rifle and mortar fire
Wake up, brave lions‎
‎ ‎
A Fatah man through and through ‎
‎[because of whom] the enemy cannot ‎sleep
He will challenge the Border Police on ‎‎[their] Hummer
and the regular [soldiers].‎

The soil of my land forever is
ours until Judgment Day
For us there will be no solution
Other than Jerusalem for the Arabs

People blow up tanks
And people carry out operations
Leader and youths ‎
‎[Pictures of Dalal Mughrabi and Abu Jihad ‎are shown in the background]‎
With Dalal, the lady of all women,‎
With blood we defend the land
I shall love my land until death

My nation is not the terrorist
The terrorist is he who stole the homeland

May Allah have mercy on Khalil Al-Wazir
‎[picture of Abu Jihad]‎
Our commander, O Abu Jihad,‎
His nation will be behind him [with]‎
Freedom and Istish'had (seeking or ‎achieving Shahada), ‎
With the PLO, [Salah] Khalaf and Abu Ali ‎Iyad
Bless my people, the young and the old
Jerusalem is [our] identity and our ‎symbol.”‎

Notes:‎ Abu Jihad (Khalil Al-Wazir) was a founder ‎of Fatah and deputy to Yasser Arafat. He ‎headed the PLO terror organization's ‎military wing and planned many deadly ‎Fatah terror attacks. These attacks, which ‎killed a total of 125 Israelis, included the ‎most lethal in Israeli history - the hijacking ‎of a bus and killing of 37 civilians, 12 of ‎them children.‎

Dalal Mughrabi 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, killing 37 ‎civilians, 12 of them children, and ‎wounding over 70.‎

Abu Ali Iyad was appointed head of Fatah ‎military operations in 1966, and was ‎responsible for several terror attacks. In a ‎filler, official PA TV wrote the following:‎
‎"He was appointed [by Fatah] to set up ‎military operations on the occupied lands ‎‎[Israel] in 1966. He led the attack on the ‎Beit Yosef colony [Israeli town], one of the ‎fiercest [attacks] on Israeli colonies until ‎then. He also led a number of operations, ‎including the attacks on the colonies ‎‎[Israeli towns] Margaliot, Manara and Kfar ‎Giladi. When in Jordan, he carried out ‎various military operations against the ‎occupation’s army camps and colonies [in ‎Israel]. He died as a Shahid (Martyr) in ‎‎1971."‎

Abu Iyad (Salah Khalaf) - Founder of Fatah ‎and head of the terrorist organization Black ‎September. Attacks he planned included ‎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).‎
