JNS.org – A new Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) youth camp will be named after the terrorist who orchestrated the deadliest attack ever carried out in Israel.

The PLO’s Supreme Council for Youth and Sports announced it will honor Dalal Mughrabi, the female Palestinian behind the bloody March 11, 1978 Coastal Road Massacre, in which terrorists hijacked a bus on the highway near Tel Aviv and embarked on a rampage with Kalashnikov rifles, mortars, grenades and explosives. Thirty-eight Israeli civilians were murdered, including 13 children, and 71 others were wounded.

The news of the naming was received enthusiastically by District Governor of Ramallah Laila Ghannam. She praised the council for “remembering the pure-hearted martyrs,” and insisted on a “solidarity rally” to commemorate the 12 terrorists who carried out the attack, Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) reported Sunday. Ghannam’s compliments were prominently featured on the PLO Council for Youth’s official Facebook page.

According to PMW, an organization that monitors Palestinian incitement in the media, “it is far from surprising” that the PLO Council for Youth — headed by Jibril Rajoub, who has a history of endorsing, promoting and glorifying terrorism — would name a camp after a Palestinian terrorist.
