Would you name a children’s summer camp after the perpetrators of a brutal hate crime motivated by anti-Semitism or racism?

By Nan Jacques Zilberdik and Maurice Hirsch, Adv.

You wouldn’t name a children’s summer camp after the perpetrators of 9/11, the New Zealand mosque shooter, or the Pittsburgh synagogue killer, right?

The PLO readily names kids’ summer camps after murderers of Israelis.

At least 2 PLO summer camps for Palestinian children are named after such murderers this summer. Both are held under the auspices of the PLO Supreme Council for Sport and Youth Affairs.

One was named after the Palestinian Authority’s role model terrorist, murderer Dalal Mughrabi who led the most lethal terror attack in Israel’s history, when she and other Fatah terrorists hijacked a bus on Israel’s Coastal Highway in March 1978, murdering 37 civilians, 12 of them children, and wounding over 70.

At the Dalal Mughrabi summer camp in Tubas a picture of the murderer hangs on the wall.

The other PLO summer camp honoring a murderer was named after Omar Abu Laila, a 19-year-old Palestinian terrorist who murdered 2 Israelis, including a rabbi who was the father of 12, in March this year.

Palestinian Media Watch exposed earlier this week that Palestinian children were taught to venerate several arch-terrorists at a third PLO summer camp.

Using summer camps to glorify terrorist murderers is not new to either the Palestinian Authority, PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah party, or the PLO, also headed by Abbas. Such summer camps have even been funded or sponsored by the UN’s children’s organization (UNICEF), as documented by PMW.
