Ceremonie vernoeming plein naar Palestijnse terrorist Dalal al-Mughrabi afgeblazen

Beter laat dan nooit, maar van uitstel zal wel geen afstel komen. Het blijft ongelofelijk dat dit door de pers bijna geheel wordt genegeerd.


Sister of 1978 hijacker says decision came from "official channels."

The Palestinian Authority has cancelled a ceremony commemorating Dalal al-Mughrabi, the woman who took part in a terror attack on Israel's coastal road, Reuters reported on Wednesday.

Infiltrating Israel by sea, Mughrabi and her collaborators took over an Egged bus in 1978 and ordered the driver to drive in the direction of Tel Aviv, shooting at passing cars on the highway as the bus made its way south from Haifa.

The bus was stopped by police near Tel Aviv, leading to a shoot-out in which 35 civilians and terrorists, among them Mughrabi herself, were killed.

To this day, Mughrabi is considered a heroic martyr in the Palestinian territories. The commemoration ceremony, which had been scheduled for Thursday, was reportedly meant to mark the naming of a traffic circle near Ramallah after the deceased terrorist.

Mughrabi's sister Rashida, an officer in PA security forces, told Reuters that the "decision to cancel the celebration came from official channels."
