Fatah leaders responded with loud applause when two terrorists who committed the most lethal terror attack in Israel's history were referred to as heroic Martyrs by former PA Prime Minister Abu Alaa (Ahmad Qurei), at the opening ceremony of Fatah's Sixth General Conference in August 2009: "We have in our midst the hero Khaled Abu-Usbah, hero of the operation [terror attack] led by the Shahida (Martyr) Dalal Mughrabi [loud applause from the audience]. We salute him and welcome him. And [we salute] the hero, the Shahida (Martyr) Dalal. [He shouts:] All the glory! All the glory! All the glory! All the sisters here are Dalal's sisters."
