Dalal Mughrabi as cultural symbol

Dr. Salah Al-Kadumi, Panorama, cultural program: 
“Dalal is a symbol for the Palestinian nation… Through the show we transmit to the viewer the Palestinian woman’s role as a fighter… as a builder of the Palestinian society… we cling to Dalal as an individual who belongs to the Palestinian consciousness.” 
[Immediately following this statement a scene is shown from a film about Mughrabi in which Israelis wearing kippot [skull caps] are threatening a Palestinian with a pistol, interrogating him in the cemetery in which Dalal Al-Mughrabi is buried, when she appears alive above her grave.] 

Note: 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.
