TEL AVIV – Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah party is running a children’s summer camp named after the terrorist behind the deadliest attack in Israel’s history.
Officials from the PA Ministry of Culture visited the camp named for Dalal Mughrabi, who led the 1978 Coastal Road massacre in which 38 people — including 13 children — were killed and a further 70 wounded, according to article published in the official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida and translated by Palestinian Media Watch.
“The Ministry of Culture delegation was briefed about the activities at the two camps, which place an emphasis on creating an educated and aware generation,” the article said of the camp, which is located in the West Bank town of Yasuf.
More than 28 Palestinian schools have been named after terrorists and three after Nazi collaborators, PMW reported. In May, Breitbart Jerusalem reported that Norwegian donations were being used to fund a Palestinian women’s center that was also named after Mughrabi. The center bore the logos of UN Women and the Norwegian Representative Office to the PA, both of which demanded the removal of the logos.
“Educating Palestinian youth to see terrorist murderers as role models is Palestinian Authority policy,” PMW said in its report.
Mughrabi led several Fatah terrorists in the hijacking of a bus on Israel’s Coastal Road before being killed in a police shootout.
