Abbas' Fatah movement continues to show support for violence against Israel and for the murder of Israelis. In a video posted on Fatah's official Facebook page today, Fatah prides itself on its "young women," who "
part from their children, leave their homes and go to the battlefield carrying burial shrouds to fight in the ranks of the Palestinian resistance in the Gaza Strip." The video shows women in training, assembling and setting up rockets, shooting and engaging in physical training.

 

A narrator explains how these fighting women are at "the frontline" and will train future generations of fighters to confront Israel:

"Another aspect of the Palestinian woman's role in all areas is being created here. She is not merely the man's partner in domestic life, but his companion wherever he is; on the battlefield, she is at his side on the frontline, and fulfills an active role in training generations of resistance [fighters], who will confront the "invincible" army."

The narrator explains that the female fighters have "willpower stronger than mountains," and that they "strive to become an important part of the path of Jihad and the struggle - the path walked by Dalal Mughrabi, Hanadi Jaradat and Reem Riyashi."

 

Fatah's role models for women specified by the narrator are a bus hijacker and two suicide bombers who murdered more than 60 people in total:

 

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.

 

Hanadi Jaradat - One of the first female Palestinian suicide terrorists. Her suicide bombing in a restaurant in Haifa in 2003 killed 21 people and injured 51.

 

Reem Riyashi - female suicide terrorist who blew herself up at the Erez crossing between Israel and the Gaza Strip on Jan. 14, 2004, killing 3 soldiers and one civilian.

 

In the video, one female fighter notes the women's adherence to "the path" of Dalal Mughrabi, who led the killing of 37 civilians in 1978:

 

"We are young women, but we can do the impossible... We support our boys, our husbands and our leaders to liberate Palestine... We are the sisters of Dalal Mughrabi. We will continue to walk the path."

 

Fatah's Facebook administrator said about the fighting women that "These are the acclaimed Fatah women."

 

Palestinian Media Watch reported this week on another video posted by Fatah, in which its military wing, The Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades, promised Israelis, "Death will reach you from the south to the north... The KN-103 rocket is on its way toward you."

 

In another post on Facebook, Fatah stated that it is united as "brothers-in-arms" with the terror organizations Hamas and Islamic Jihad.

 

Fatah posted this incitement as Hamas was firing hundreds of rockets at Israel, and as Israel was responding with Operation Protective Edge, which aimed at destroying Hamas' terror infrastructure and ability to launch rockets at Israel.

 

The following is a longer excerpt from the video posted on Fatah's Facebook page showing Palestinian women training in rocket launching and shooting:

 

Female fighter: Roger. Roger.
Tv reporter:
Another aspect of the Palestinian woman's role in all areas is being created here. She is not merely the man's partner in domestic life, but his companion wherever he is; on the battlefield, she is at his side on the frontline, and fulfills an active role in training generations of resistance [fighters], who will confront the "invincible" army. With willpower stronger than mountains, these young women part from their children, leave their homes and go to the battlefield carrying burial shrouds to fight in the ranks of the Palestinian resistance in the Gaza Strip. They thereby strive to become an important part of the path of Jihad and the struggle - the path walked by Dalal Mughrabi, Hanadi Jaradat and Reem Riyashi... Um Salim, member of [Fatah's] Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades:

Female fighter: We are young women, but we can do the impossible... We support our boys, our husbands and our leaders to liberate Palestine, in the way of leader Yasser Arafat. We are the sisters of Dalal Mughrabi. We will continue to walk the path...

TV reporter: The woman in Palestine is no longer a prisoner of her home or work, but constitutes the foundation of the [young] generations' education and the occupation's defeat.
