Host on Fatah-run TV: Terrorist who led killing of 37 is ‎"the Bride of Palestine”

Awdah TV, Fatah-run  |

Awdah TV host:‎ "Today and on the 50th anniversary of the founding of Fatah, ‎which has sacrificed many of its sons and commanders, we will talk about the Bride of ‎Palestine, the daughter and Martyr of the Palestinian revolution, Dalal Mughrabi. This ‎young woman's name has been engraved in history in letters that will never be ‎forgotten... We will talk about how Dalal became a role model..."

Israa Al-Bargouti, Fatah’s Shabiba movement:‎ "The Sisters of Dalal Mughrabi ‎‎(i.e., PA universities' Fatah committee), or the name Dalal Mughrabi has longstanding ‎symbolism in Palestine. No one has forgotten Dalal Mughrabi since her Martyrdom in ‎‎1978. Her name is engraved on the hearts of all Palestinians, male and female. ‎Therefore we [Fatah’s committee] are proud to be named after Dalal Mughrabi, the hero ‎of Palestine, the Bride of Palestine, and the Martyr of Palestine... Dalal Mughrabi has ‎affected me greatly, because she gave me the hope that even though I am a girl, I can ‎defend my homeland. It is my role to be an inseparable part of Palestine, to offer and ‎sacrifice myself for Palestine. Even though she was a young woman of only 20, she ‎led 12 fighters of Al-Asifa (i.e., Fatah’s military wing during the 1960s - 1970s), and ‎carried out an operation (i.e., terror attack), in which she died as a Martyr. This way, she ‎affects all young women today: We are allowed to do something even greater than ‎what she did. We will follow her path, Allah willing. [Mughrabi] accomplished ‎something great. She led the operation, which claimed casualties, and she died as a ‎Martyr."

Awdah TV host:‎ "She was the commander of a military squad, and she gave the ‎orders.‎"

Note: 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.
