Fatah Facebook page glorifies terrorists who killed 37 civilians in honor of the anniversary of their attack

Fatah’s official Facebook page glorified terrorist Dalal Mughrabi and the anniversary of the most lethal terror attack in Israel’s history. 37 Israeli civilians were killed when Dalal Mughrabi and a group of terrorists hijacked a bus on March 11, 1978. 
     “Twelve men led by a woman named Dalal Mughrabi succeeded in establishing Palestine, after the world refused to recognize their right to establish it.
They got on a bus on its way from [the Israeli city of] Haifa to Tel Aviv, and turned it into the temporary capital of the State of Palestine. They raised the white-green-red-black flag on the front of the bus, sang, chanted and danced, like children on a school trip.
When the Zionist forces surrounded them and helicopters pursued them intent on forcefully [lit. with the power of the weapon] taking over the bus, they blew it up, and blew themselves up with it. For the first time in the history of revolutions, a public bus became an independent republic with full sovereignty, for four hours. [It doesn’t matter] at all how long this republic lasted. What is important is that it was established and the name of its first president was Dalal Mughrabi.
Courage has no gender. Arab men must understand that the glory of life or the glory of death is not exclusively theirs, and that the woman can love in a far more noble way than them, and die much more spectacularly than them…
In a thousand years, the Arab children will read the following story:
‘On March 11, 1978, twelve men and a woman managed to establish the Republic of Palestine on a bus. Their republic existed for four hours. It doesn’t matter how long this republic existed – what is important is that it was established.’”
Text in red on picture: “Embrace until victory” (similar to Fatah’s slogan: “Revolution until victory”)
