JNS.org Jordanian children are taught from early ages to idolize Palestinian terrorists including Dalal Mughrabi, who in 1978 led a bus attack in which 37 Israeli civilians were killed, Palestinian Media Watch reported Sept. 12.

Najla Sahwil, a Jordanian actress, recently told the official Palestinian Authority (PA) TV channel that she and her Jordanian peers were inspired by Mughrabi as youths.

“I dreamt of playing the part of that great personality, Dalal Mughrabi,” Sahwil said. “We grew up in school on the personality of this Palestinian female fighter.”

PA President Mahmoud Abbas in August awarded a $6,000 grant to a youth dance group named for Mughrabi. Additionally, “The Lion Cubs and Flowers,” a youth group for boys and girls run by Abbas’s Fatah party, named a class after Mughrabi.
