2009: PA TV celebrates most murderous terror attack in Israel’s history
Would you expect this from your peace partner?
The terror attack on March 11, 1978, involved a bus hijacking that left 37 civilians dead. The Palestinian Authority celebrated the 20th anniversary of the attack with an hour-long TV special about the hijacking. The program included file footage of PLO training camps, and interviews with a number of terrorists describing the planning and implementation of the attack. The program opened with the narrator glorifying the attack as:
“… one of the most important and most prominent special operations, executed by the Palestinian revolution by sea, on the coast between Haifa and Tel Aviv. This operation, carried out by a team of heroes and led by the heroic fighter Dalal Mughrabi, had great impact on continuing events of the Arab-Israeli conflict.”
