Violence and terror
Case study: Dalal Mughrabi, from terrorist to hero
Violence and terror
After demonizing Jews and Israelis, including citing Islamic sources that depict Jews negatively, and culminating with ongoing lies and libels that portray Jews as an immediate threat to Palestinian life and existence, the Palestinian Authority foment violence against Jews and Israelis, presenting it as legitimate and even heroic self-defense.

PA terror promotion takes many forms. Nationalistically, the PA actively elevates violence as a valid and heroic means to achieve political goals, while religiously, fighting and killing Jews has been presented repeatedly by PA religious and academic leaders as Allah’s will. On the social level, Palestinian leaders and society honor even the most loathsome of murderers portraying them as heroes and role models: Dalal Mughrabi, who led a bus hijacking in which 37 were killed, has schools, summer camps, and many other events and places baring her name to immortalize and glorify her and her terror attack.

The success of the PA’s promotion of violence is readily evident: A majority of Palestinians support killing and suicide terror against civilian Jews and Israelis. A poll conducted after the murder of eight teenagers who were studying in a Jerusalem high school in 2008, found that 84% of Palestinians supported the murder [NY Times, March 19, 2008, citing the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research].

Case study: Dalal Mughrabi, from terrorist to hero
Terrorist Dalal Mughrabi led the most deadly terror attack in Israel's history. 37 civilians, 12 of them children, were killed in her 1978 bus hijacking. The Palestinian Authority has turned this terrorist into a celebrated hero and role model, as schools, summer camps, and sports tournaments are all named after her. Her attack was celebrated by a Fatah spokesman as "the most glorified sacrifice action in the history of the Palestinian-Israeli struggle." [Al-Ayyam, July 13, 2008] Palestinian newspapers also frequently glorify Mughrabi, as in the Al-Ayyam article which described Mughrabi as writing "the most glorious page of heroism in the history of the Palestinian struggle. [Aug. 2, 2009] The PA celebrated the 31st anniversary of the killings with an hour-long TV special, which opened with the narrator glorifying the attack. Advisor to Mahmoud Abbas, Deputy Secretary of the Fatah Revolutionary Council, Sabri Saidam said on the day of the naming of a square in her name: "Every one of us has tried in his own way to express his pride in this Martyr [Mughrabi]."

Headline: “Gaza: Mother’s Day Ceremony in Honor of Mothers of the Martyrs and Prisoners”
     “The head of the General Union of Palestinian Women, Fatah Central Committee member Amal Hamad, said that the Palestinian woman would retain [what she achieved in] her years of struggle for liberty and dignity. [Hamad said this] during a ceremony of appreciation organized by the Federation of Palestinian Women's Action Committees (FPWAC) in Gaza yesterday, out of loyalty to the mothers of the Martyrs (Shahids) and prisoners on the occasion of International Mother’s Day.
In a speech she gave during the ceremony, Hamad said: ‘March comes each year so that we may honor those most honorable of all – the Martyrs, the prisoners and their families – and so that we may make a commitment to them to continue along the same path and not retreat even for a moment, in order to retain [what they achieved in] their years of struggle for liberty and dignity.’ Hamad clarified that this month includes many symbols of the struggle against the occupation, since it was in this month that Dalal Mughrabi unflinchingly sacrificed her life for the homeland, so that the flag of the struggle and resistance might continue to [fly] for future generations. Also during this month, Rachel Corrie sacrificed her life when she placed herself before the occupation’s bulldozers in Rafah.”

      “The Women of the Beita Development Association celebrated International Women’s Day with widespread official and civilian participation…
In a speech given on behalf of Nablus District Governor Akram Rajoub, Ghassan Daghlas, who holds the settlement portfolio in the Nablus district, said that ‘March is not the only month for supporting the women who participated in all the battles our nation has fought against the occupation.’ He also noted that ‘the self-sacrificing fighter (Fida’ia) Dalal Mughrabi, who carried out the heroic coastal operation (i.e., the Coastal Road massacre in which 37 were killed), is a historic feminine model on our nation’s path, and she was not the only woman to participate in the struggle and to bear its consequences.’”

Note: 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. Palestinians often refer to the attack as the “Kamal Adwan operation.”

In March 1978, Dalal Mughrabi led a group of Fatah terrorists from Lebanon and hijacked a bus on Israel's Coastal Highway. Confronted by the Israeli army, the terrorists killed many of the passengers on the bus, in total 37 civilians, 12 of them children, and wounded more than 70.
Fatah Central Committee member Sultan Abu Al-Einein posted the following on his Facebook page, glorifying the attack and the terrorists who carried it out:


Posted text: “On the early morning of Saturday, March 11, 1978, a [small] band [of Palestinian fighters] sailed from Deir Yassin on a cargo ship, which, it was decided, would transport them to a [point] 12 miles from the Palestinian coast, after which the band sailed on in a simple boat towards the coast south of Haifa.
Thus Dalal Mughrabi arrived on the soil of the beloved homeland, and her dream came true. She and her friends crossed the beach towards the Haifa-Jaffa highway, near the colony of Herzliya, which was near their destination. They succeeded in halting a large bus with 30 Israeli passengers, and forced it to turn toward Tel Aviv ... The enemy forces destroyed the bus together with its passengers, and admitted to having sustained 42 fatalities and 85 casualties, in addition to [the loss of] two buses, six taxis and a military jeep. As a result, 11 heroes, including Dalal Mughrabi, died as Martyrs, while two were wounded and captured.”

On this day, March 11, in 1978, Dalal Mughrabi and her companions declared the birth of the Palestinian Republic in the heart of the occupied territories (i.e., Israel). The enemy admitted the death of 30 Zionists in the operation, yet according to the reports the number exceeded 80 casualties. Through this, Fatah heroes retaliated against the Verdun Operation (i.e., Israeli operation against PLO leaders, see below), following the retaliation by the Savoy [Hotel operation] members.

Terrorist who participated in terror attack led by Dalal Mughrabi discusses the attack and its aims

Official PA TV program A Fighter’s Memories hosted senior Fatah member Khaled Ibrahim, who participated in the 1978 Coastal Road Massacre – the most lethal terror attack in Israel’s history, in which Fatah terrorists led by Dalal Mughrabi hijacked a bus on Israel's Coastal Highway, killing 37 civilians, 12 of them children, and wounding over 70:

Khaled Ibrahim: “The Israeli claim is that we were terrorists and murderers. If we had been terrorists and murderers, we would have started shooting people the moment we took control of the bus, for example. But we wanted to protect the lives of the hostages, for our own goals. We had political goals, and besides the political goals, we had security goals. We had brothers in the Israeli prisons we wanted to free. Why did Abu Jihad insist that Dalal Mughrabi take part in the operation? As a response to [Ehud] Barak and his ilk. When Barak went to Beirut [as part of the 1973 Israeli raid on Lebanon] and assassinated the three leaders, Abu Yusuf Al-Najjar, Kamal Nasser and Kamal Adwan – he came disguised as a woman, Defense Minister Ehud Barak [sic.- Barak was then commander of an elite Israeli army unit] – and went in and assassinated the Palestinian leadership. But Abu Jihad said to him: I will send you a real Palestinian girl who will confront you. ”
