Marking the 40th anniversary of the most lethal terror attack in Israel's history in which 12 children and 25 Israeli adult civilians were murdered by Palestinian terrorists, Fatah posted a video celebrating the attack and glorifying the murderers, in particular the leader of the attack, female terrorist Dalal Mughrabi. Palestinians have referred to the hijacked bus in which most of the Israelis were murdered, as "the first Palestinian Republic," because the bus remained under the terrorists' control for a few hours, as they drove from Haifa in the north to the center of the country, while shooting at civilian cars they passed on the way.

Texts in Fatah's video praising Mughrabi focus on the fact that the leader of the attack was a woman, and credit her with being "the president of the first republic":

"The name of the president of the first republic was Dalal Mughrabi.
Heroism has no gender.
Arab men must understand that they don't have a monopoly on the glory of life or the glory of death,
and women can love much more nobly than the way they love, and die in a much more spectacular way than they die"
[Official Fatah Facebook page, March 11, 2018]

Other texts in Fatah's video described the terror attack as "the bravest victory" and portrayed the hijacking of a bus full of Israeli civilians as the establishment of "the Palestinian republic" and of "the temporary capital of the State of Palestine":

g
"Twelve men under the command of a woman named Dalal Mughrabi.
They succeeded in establishing Palestine after the world refused to recognize their right to establish it.
They boarded a bus from Haifa to Tel Aviv and turned it into the temporary capital of the State of Palestine.
And raised the flag of the white-green- red-black colors at the front of the bus, and sang, called out, and danced as school students do on trips.
When the Zionist forces surrounded them and helicopters chased them in order to overtake the bus with weapons, [Dalal and her men] blew it up and were blown up together with it.
For the first time in the history of revolutions a public bus turned into a fully sovereign independent republic for four hours...
The name of the president of the first republic was Dalal Mughrabi." (See full text below.)

Palestinian Media Watch reported yesterday that Fatah's women's committee at the Palestinian universities - "Sisters of Dalal" - celebrated International Women's Day by giving out cards to women at An-Najah University with text praising Mughrabi and encouraging women to believe in themselves.

Similarly, the Jerusalem branch of Fatah sent a greeting to Palestinian women on Women's Day, emphasizing they are "partners in the struggle" and that Palestinian women have "carried out the most prominent acts of heroism," and prominent among these women is "praiseworthy Martyr Dalal Mughrabi":

"The Jerusalem branch emphasized in its notice that women - partners in the struggle - have through their struggle and resolve in the face of the occupation carried out the most prominent acts of heroism and sacrifice in history, as they are the Martyrs (Shahids), prisoners, and wounded...
At this opportunity, the Jerusalem branch... mentioned praiseworthy Martyr Dalal Mughrabi, especially in light of the approaching 40th anniversary of her death as a Martyr."
[Ma'an, independent Palestinian news agency, March 7, 2018]

PMW reported recently on a Fatah video in which Abbas' movement tried to hide they murdered children in the Coastal Road massacre. Instead they claimed everyone on the bus were "soldier passengers."

Abbas' Fatah Movement further honored the murderers from the attack as "thunderous souls, who ascended and hovered in Heaven":

f
"We stand in honor and appreciation of these thunderous souls, who ascended and hovered in Heaven to dwell by their Lord, cast their shadow, and entered the heart, soul, and memory of every Palestinian and of every Arab who belongs to Palestine.
Blessings to the soul of eternal Martyr Dalal Mughrabi, and blessings to all of the Martyrs who sacrificed their lives for Palestine."

As mentioned above, Fatah has named its women's committees at Palestinian universities after murderer Mughrabi. The sorority is named "Sisters of Dalal" and is present at several universities, among them An-Najah University, Palestine Ahliya UniversityAl-Azhar University, and Birzeit University.

The following are longer excerpts of the reports quoted as well as additional reports and statements glorifying terrorist Mughrabi:

"Women can die in a more spectacular way than men die" - Fatah celebrates terrorist murderer Dalal Mughrabi
Words of love to the one who wreaked havoc in the heart of the enemies.
She raised the flag of the [Palestinian] state, and it was the bravest victory.
The Fatah Movement - Syria Branch
The Committee for Instilling the Ideology and for Research.
This is the hero Dalal Mughrabi.
A sister of the free women and men.
For the 36th anniversary of her death as a Martyr.
Twelve men under the command of a woman named Dalal Mughrabi.
They succeeded in establishing Palestine after the world refused to recognize their right to establish it.
They boarded a bus from Haifa to Tel Aviv and turned it into the temporary capital of the State of Palestine.
And raised the flag of the white-green- red-black colors at the front of the bus, and sang, called out, and danced as school students do on trips.
When the Zionist forces surrounded them and helicopters chased them in order to overtake the bus with weapons, [Dalal and her men] blew it up and were blown up together with it.
For the first time in the history of revolutions a public bus turned into a fully sovereign independent republic for four hours.
It makes no difference how long this Palestinian republic existed; what was important was its establishment.
The name of the president of the first republic was Dalal Mughrabi.
Heroism has no gender.
Arab men must understand that they don't have a monopoly on the glory of life or the glory of death,
and women can love much more nobly than the way they love, and die in a much more spectacular way than they die...
The will of Dalal to the comrades in arms and those bearing rifles:
My will to all of you, my brothers who bear rifles, begins with putting aside the secondary disputes, escalating the main dispute with the Zionist enemy, and directing the rifles - all of the rifles - toward the Zionist enemy.
The independent Palestinian decision making is protected by the rebels' rifles.
To all of the factions, to all of my brothers whoever they may be, I say:
Continue on the same path on which we walked.

The Fatah Movement - Syria Branch; The Committee for Instilling the Ideology and for Research; Indeed this is a revolution until victory.

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, murdering 37 civilians, 12 of them children, and wounding over 70.

Headline: "The Jerusalem branch of Fatah: Women are a partner in the struggle"
"The Jerusalem branch of the Fatah Movement sent a greeting of honor and appreciation to the female fighters for peace and freedom, to our mothers, our daughters, and our partners in life, and to the brave and praiseworthy female protectors of the struggle. This was for International Women's Day, which occurs tomorrow (Thursday), March 8 [2018].
The Jerusalem branch emphasized in its notice that women - partners in the struggle - have through their struggle and resolve in the face of the occupation carried out the most prominent acts of heroism and sacrifice in history, as they are the Martyrs (Shahids), prisoners, and wounded...
At this opportunity, the Jerusalem branch... mentioned praiseworthy Martyr Dalal Mughrabi (i.e., terrorist who led murder of 37, 12 of them children), especially in light of the approaching 40th anniversary of her death as a Martyr."
[Ma'an, independent Palestinian news agency, March 7, 2018]

Official PA TV program Topic of the Day, episode on Palestinian women for International Women's Day, hosting District Governor of Ramallah and El-Bireh Laila Ghannam
District Governor of Ramallah and El-Bireh Laila Ghannam: "March 8, [International Women's Day,] is a symbolic day for women - let us wish them love throughout the year and not just on March 8. Perhaps the activities are concentrated in March in general - March of women, March of mothers, March of Dalal Mughrabi (i.e., terrorist who led murder of 37, 12 of them children), March of the Karameh [battle], and of the land, March of spring. But women are the spring throughout the year and the seasons, particularly the Palestinian women."
[Official PA TV, Topic of the Day, March 7, 2018]

The Karameh battle, or Al-Karameh - On March 21, 1968, Israeli army forces attacked the town of Karameh in Jordan, where Fatah terrorists had been launching attacks on Israel. Although Israel prevailed militarily, Arafat used the event for propaganda purposes, declaring the battle a great victory that erased the disgrace of the 1967 Six Day War defeat.

Blessings to the soul of eternal Martyr Dalal Mughrabi, and blessings to all of the Martyrs who sacrificed their lives for Palestine."
