Headline: Fatah holds girls’ basketball cup in terrorist’s honor
A Palestinian Authority school honored a female terrorist responsible for one of the worst terror attacks in Israel’s history, naming a girls’ basketball tournament after Dalal Mughrabi, who took part in the Coastal Road Massacre.
In 1978, Mughrabi and several other Fatah terrorists landed on a beach near Tel Aviv, hijacked a bus on Israel’s Coastal Highway and eventually killed 38 civilians, 13 of them children, and wounded over 70.
Over the years the terrorists, who died in a firefight with Israeli security forces, have been hailed as heroes by Fatah.
Palestinian Media Watch reported Wednesday that a Ramallah-area school for girls, Al-Awael, this month held the “Dalal Mughrabi Cup” in honor of the killer.
According to the report the cup was also co-organized by the Al-Razi Cultural and Social Association, a Palestinian NGO that works with the Anna Lindh Foundation to promote “intercultural dialogue” and “build trust and improve mutual understanding.”
