PA and Fatah officials glorify terrorists who killed 37 at Fatah event hosted by Palestinian Red Crescent; Fatah official says Israel is forcing children to stab

Headline: “Ramallah: Fatah marks the 38th anniversary of the death as Martyrs of Dalal Mughrabi and her fellow companions”
     “The Fatah Movement marked the 38th anniversary of the death as Martyrs (Shahids) of Dalal Mughrabi and her fellow companions in the [Palestinian] Red Crescent auditorium in El-Bireh, in the presence of District Governor of Ramallah and El-Bireh Laila Ghannam and some members of the PLO Executive Committee and the Fatah Central Committee. Ghannam emphasized that Dalal insisted on carrying a rifle alongside her male companions, and on standing next to them in the battlefield… Fatah Central Committee member Sultan Abu Al-Einein emphasized that Dalal, her companions, and the planner of the operation (i.e., terror attack), Martyr Abu Jihad, wanted the operation to unite the brothers and friends of all Arab countries, and wished to convey the message that Palestine is the cause of all Arabs.
He added: ‘If the Israeli enemy wants peace, it will discover that we will make this peace; but it does not want us to live on our land, but rather that we be strangers in this homeland.’ He added that our people is tired of chasing after a false peace.
Abu Al-Einein stated: ‘Israel and its extremist government need to stop inciting and spilling Palestinian blood so that our children and youth will stop responding.’ He held Israel fully responsible for the escalation [of violence] in the Palestinian territories, due to the acts of the terrorist settlers… and stressed that Israel is the one forcing our children to carry out stabbing operations against soldiers and settlers…
PLO Executive Committee member [and Secretary-General of the Palestinian Liberation Front] Wasel Abu Yusuf stated: ‘Our nation will not rule out any option of struggle or resistance until the realization of our national project.’ He noted that the current Israeli government is the most extreme, and that it will not give us anything but continued land theft.”

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.

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.
