In the above video, an announcer on official state-run Palestinian Authority TV is heard openly praising the actions of the terrorists who perpetrated the Ma’alot massacre in 1974.
Ma’alot is situated in northern Israel, far from the “disputed territories.” The attack was a demonstration that Palestinian groups ultimately intend to “liberate” all of the Holy Land from Jewish rule.
In this particular attack, jihadists with the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP) infiltrated an elementary school in the Galilee town of Ma’alot and took the entire student body and faculty as hostages.
When Israeli commandoes attempted to storm the facility, the terrorists massacred 22 Israeli children and four teachers.
The Palestinian Authority continues to see this as a “heroic” military operation, rather than the brutal act of senseless murder that it is.
