Fatah: Terrorist who killed 12 kids is a symbol for ‘humanistic struggle’
The statement was slammed by Netanyahu’s spokesperson, who said “there’s nothing humanistic about you or her.”
Fatah, the party of PA President Mahmoud Abbas, said that the decision to name a summer camp after Dalal Mughrabi is justified since she is a “symbol for the humanistic struggle” against Israel. 
Mughrabi was killed in 1978 after she led eleven Palestinian and Lebanese militants in a killing and hijacking spree within Israel that claimed the lives of 38 Israelis, 13 of them children. It is the deadliest attack on Israeli civilians in the history of the Jewish state. 
Among Palestinians, Mughrabi is often seen as a martyr and as a positive example. The death of the children is explained as the result of Israeli efforts to rescue the hostages that Mughrabi kidnapped. Israeli's claim is that she blew up the entire bus, with the children and herself inside. 
 “There’s nothing humanistic about you or her,” wrote Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s spokesperson Ofir Gendelman on Thursday: “Look at the kids she murdered.’   
The Sisters of Dalal Summer Camp was organized by the Tulkarem branch of the Fatah Movement’s Shabiba Youth Movement high school committees, with the support of the PLO Supreme Council for Sport and Youth Affairs, Palestinian Media Watch reported on July 14.
