PA daily: Terrorist Dalal Mughrabi is "most beloved among Palestinian girls"

Article by regular writer Badr Makki:
Headline: "Fatah in my heart"
     “That is how Fatah grew within us. It came into our hearts and lives within us, and the time has come for the [second] half of our people: the wife, mother, sister, and daughter. This is Dalal Mughrabi, most beloved among Palestinian girls… Dalal commanded that the secondary conflict be frozen and that the primary conflict against the Zionist enemy be escalated, and that all rifles be aimed at him… [Dalal] was a student of Abu Jihad (i.e., founder of Fatah and terrorist who planned many deadly attacks) of the Al-Asifa [Fatah military] forces.
It was the first time the Hebrew entity (i.e., Israel) imposed a curfew on the whole Tel Aviv region up to Netanya. Dalal taught an unforgettable lesson about the greatness of the Palestinian woman and the strength of [the Palestinian woman's] will. I do not forget the Battle of the Litani or the Savoy [Hotel] Operation. My love for Fatah is great because of my love for Dalal, for Abu Jihad, for both ‘Kamal’s, and for Abu Yusuf Al-Najjar…
All that is missing for us to achieve reconciliation is just a small amount of desire and acting as we should during this difficult period during which every part of Palestine suffers from the settlement plague. Let's learn from Dalal Mughrabi and her legacy. She instructed us to defuse the secondary conflict, for we have the same enemy and the same aim – especially after the victory of our resistance (i.e., reference to the Palestinians’ perceived victory over Israel in the Gaza conflict in 2012, Israel’s Operation Pillar of Defense that targeted the terror infrastructure in the Gaza Strip.) and our being admitted to the UN (i.e., reference to UN’s vote in favor of Palestine as a “non-member state”). Let us all dedicate ourselves to ending the occupation."

Note: Dalal Mughrabi led the most lethal terror attack in Israel’s history in 1978, when she and other terrorists hijacked a bus and killed 37 civilians, 12 of them children.
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, including the most lethal in Israeli history, the hijacking of a bus and killing of 37 civilians, 12 of them children.
Abu Yusuf Al-Najjar was Arafat's deputy and Commander of Operations for the terrorist organization Black September.
Kamal Adwan was responsible for Fatah’s terrorist operations and a senior member of Black September. He and Kamal Nasser were killed by Israeli forces in April 1973.
