Posted text: “27 years have passed since the prince of Martyrs left us… The anniversary of one of the free men and legendary revolutionaries, the anniversary of the death of the brave commander, the prince of Martyrs, Abu Jihad. Abu Jihad, Khalil Al-Wazir, we bewail your death as the dove cries. We are sorry that you left, but we hope for better, for Martyrdom and to join you. O, commander and thinker, planner and accomplisher, there is no name or epithet that could fit your position and fill your chair.
O, commander and thinker, you are still a compass to every revolutionary and free person. You wrote and are still writing the most impressive of the heroic battles, and they have become a method of fighting for every generation. Your seed still constantly yields crops.
When the sowers lose their way, Dimona, Savoy, and the coastal [road] (referring to terror attacks, -Ed.) are grateful that your illuminating red pen is not far. The walls are still decorated with bullets and there is no escape from them when the truth is revealed. And how can it not be so? You nursed from the milk of the sounds of battle; a gun served as your doll. And the crackle of bullets was the music playing in your ears… We will write with blood, and speak with bullets, you did well to attack and retreat alternately, to quench the thirst of bereaved mothers according to the rhythm of the heartbeat of the oppressed”
Note: 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 also planned many deadly Fatah terror attacks. These attacks, which killed a total of 125 Israelis, included the most lethal in Israeli history - the hijacking of a bus and killing of 37 civilians, 12 of them children.
The Dalal Mughrabi Magazine Facebook page - An electronic “magazine” published by the Culture Committee of the Fatah Shabiba student movement at the Birzeit University containing information about Shabiba events at the university, national holidays, Fatah anniversaries, historically important days/events for Fatah, and occasional news items. The profile picture on the page is a photo of terrorist Dalal Mughrabi who 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.
