PA daily op-ed glorifies female terrorists and promises to continue on their path

Op-ed by Dr. Faiha Qassem Abd Al-Hadi
“We will fight, as [our] grandmothers, mothers, sisters and daughters fought before us. The women’s struggle has not been a pleasant pastime, for some of them were punished, some were arrested and tortured, and some died as Martyrs (Shahids) for freedom: Lebanese union fighter ‘Warda Butrus Ibrahim’ [died] in 1946 while fighting alongside Lebanese workers for her rights and theirs; fighter ‘Sana'a Mehaidli’[died] in 1985 while defending her freedom and her homeland’s freedom against the Israeli occupation’s army in South Lebanon; Algerian fighter and doctor ‘Malika Qaid’, in 1957, who planned and carried out military actions against the French occupier; Palestinian fighter ‘Shadia Abu Ghazaleh’ [died] in Nablus while preparing a military operation against the Israeli occupier in 1968; and fighter “Dalal Mughrabi” who declared the first free Republic of Palestine in 1978. We promise our Arab [female] Martyrs (Shahidas) that we will continue on this path: ‘We haven’t grown tired and we haven’t been destroyed, freedom isn’t for free’ and we promise the [female] prisoners that we will continue our struggle ‘around the world and throughout the whole year’ and that we will undress the jailers and press for their (the female prisoners’) release and for the release of all the prisoners of freedom.”

Note: Sana'a Mahaidli carried out a suicide attack killing Israeli soldiers in South Lebanon.
Shadia Abu Ghazaleh was active in the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) terror organization and was involved in many attacks against Israel. While preparing a bomb for an attack in Tel Aviv in 1968, it accidentally detonated and killed her.
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.
