In keeping with their annual tradition, Fatah and the PA celebrated the anniversary of the most lethal terror attack against Israel.   

  

In 1978, terrorist Dalal Mughrabi led a group of terrorists from Lebanon into Israel, where they hijacked a bus and killed 36 Israeli civilians, 12 of them children, and 1 American civilian.

 

At an event, Fatah's spokesman Ahmad Assaf praised terrorist Dalal Mughrabi as "an extraordinary example of struggle, whose headline is bravery, heroism, sacrifice and courage" and who "inspired her generation and the next generations." [Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, March 12, 2014]

 

The official Palestinian Authority daily reported from the event that "Fatah promised to the masses of our heroic people that it would remain loyal to the promise of the Martyr Dalal and her companions, and to all the Martyrs, until freedom, independence and return." [Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, March 17, 2014]

 

Mahmoud Abbas' advisor on NGOs Sultan Abu Al-Einein said at another event:

"I am greatly honored to be standing [here] today, so days that are important to us all will never be erased from our memory. In March, [we mark] Palestinian Women’s Day, in March, Palestinian Mother’s Day also occurs, in March [we remember] that dark-skinned young woman from the Shatila [refugee] camp [Dalal Mughrabi], who would not agree to anything other than to establish her state between Jaffa and Lebanon in her special way; that young woman who fought along with her comrades until her ammunition ran out. Yes, March is honored by this Palestinian blood... They [Israelis] are deluding themselves if they think the negotiations are our only choice. Let the young people hear me: Allah, honor us with Martyrdom (Shahada). Allah, give us the honor of being part of the procession of Martyrs.[Official PA TV Live, March 17, 2014]

Assaf made these statements during a speech he gave in Fatah's name at the Al-Amari Youth Club, which had organized a rally to mark the anniversary of the Martyrdom of Dalal Mughrabi yesterday, in cooperation with Fatah and the Popular Committee of the [Al-Amari] refugee camp.

Assaf added that the Martyr Dalal will remain among us forever, through the 'Sisters of Dalal' (i.e., the Palestinian universities' Fatah committee), who will complete the journey and keep the flag waving until it is raised over the walls of Jerusalem and over its churches and mosques. On this occasion, Fatah promised to the masses of our heroic people that it would remain loyal to the promise of the Martyr Dalal and her companions, and to all the Martyrs, until freedom, independence and return [are achieved].

The event's participants included Rashida Mughrabi, the sister of the Martyr Dalal, Revolutionary Council Member [and Deputy Minister of Prisoners' Affairs] Ziad Abu Ein, Palestinian Parliament Member Jamal Huweil, Chairman of the People's Committee of the [Al-Amari] refugee camp, the mayor of Betunia and a large crowd..."
