Palestiian Media Watch
TEL AVIV – The murder of 22 Israeli children and their teachers in a terror attack in the 1970s was an “act of heroism,” a program broadcast on official Palestinian Authority TV declared last week.
The narrator of Buy Time in Jerusalem, a PA TV program aired on July 1, goes on to say of the terrorists who carried out the murders, “their souls would float as Martyrs above the skies of Palestine,” according to a translation by Palestinian Media Watch.
The 1974 Ma’alot massacre involved a two-day hostage situation with 115 schoolchildren and their teachers, ending in the murder of 26. The terror leader who planned the attack, Khaled Nazzal, has in the past month had three monuments erected in his honor in two West Bank cities, as well as a square and now a street.
