To mark International Women’s Day, P.A. TV broadcast an interview with the Director of the Palestinian Women’s Union in Gaza, Amal Hamad.
Instead of discussing the achievements of Palestinian women or the inequality that they suffer in Palestinian society, Hamad chose to highlight that Palestinian women have played an important role in violence and terror, what she calls the “Palestinian national struggle.”
“We have had female martyrs, wounded and prisoners. … The women were the first to take part in the battle. That is why we also have female martyrs — Shadia Abu Ghazaleh (i.e., terrorist, prepared bombs for terror attacks), Dalal Mughrabi (i.e., terrorist who led murder of 37, 12 of them children), Wafa Idris (i.e., first female suicide bomber, murdered 1), Ayyat Al-Akhras (i.e., youngest female suicide-bomber, murdered 2), Darin Abu Aisheh (i.e., female suicide bomber, wounded 3) … ”
Indeed, the female Palestinian murderers do enjoy a special position in Palestinian society. Terrorists Shadia Abu Ghazaleh and Dalal Mughrabi both have P.A. schools named after them.
