37 years on, Fatah lauds lethal terror attack

Celebrating the anniversary of the most lethal terror attack against Israel, the Palestinian Fatah party, headed by PA President Mahmoud Abbas, addressed Israelis on its Facebook page, telling them to collect the body parts of murdered Israelis and leave Israel.

The group even posted a photo of the destroyed bus in which terrorist Dalal Mughrabi and other terrorists killed 37 civilians and wounded over 70 in 1978. In an effort to make the attack seem more lethal, Palestinian Media Watch reports, Fatah exaggerated the number of Israelis they murdered as “exceeding 80 casualties.”

“Collect your body parts and leave!” urged a post on Fatah’s Facebook page published today, calling the terrorists “heroes.”

“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. 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 [an Israeli operation against PLO leaders conducted in 1973], following the retaliation by the Savoy [Hotel operation] members. Retaliation after retaliation and the windstorms will not subside,” the Facebook post reads.

The Palestinian Authority and Fatah have turned Dalal Mughrabi into a role model for Palestinians.

“The Savoy Operation” refers to a terror attack in March 1975, when eight terrorists traveled by boat from Lebanon to a Tel Aviv beach. They took over the Savoy Hotel and took guests as hostages. The next morning, Israeli forces attacked and killed seven of the terrorists. Eight hostages and three soldiers were killed by the terrorists during the attack.
