Posted text: "Fatah was here, March 11, 1978
On the 11th of the month of almonds (i.e., March), Saturday
The waves landed on the shore,
while I was still at the plow
From the heart of the waves came the self-sacrificing fighters (Fedayeen) of my homeland
And dark-skinned Arab Dalal surged forward"

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. The Palestinians refer to the attack as the Kamal Adwan Operation.
