One of Fatah's official Facebook pages continues to promote and glorify violence and terror for children. In one post, young Palestinian boys are shown holding rifles with the text:
"The children of Palestine - this is how they celebrated their holiday."

"Machine gun, wake up the sleeping and tell them that without blood Palestine will not return"

Description of the terrorists:

Dala 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.

Ayyat Al-Akhras was the youngest female Palestinian suicide bomber (age 17). She killed 2 Israelis and injured 28 in a suicide bombing near a Jerusalem supermarket on March 29, 2002.

Wafa Idris was the first Palestinian female suicide bomber. She killed one and injured over 100 in her attack in central Jerusalem in 2002. As a volunteer for the Palestinian Red Crescent, she was able to bypass Israeli security and enter Jerusalem in a Palestinian ambulance.

Darin Abu Aisheh - suicide bomber whose attack in 2002 injured 2.
On a Facebook page dedicated to Ramallah Governor Laila Ghannam, a picture was posted honoring terrorists who killed 8 civilians in an attack on a Tel Aviv hotel in 1975. The Facebook page, entitled "Friends of Dr. Laila Ghannam," posted a picture of the governor placing a wreath on the terrorists' graves:
