Palestinian Arabs celebrate terror anniversary

As I mentioned on Friday, January 1 marked the 46th anniversary of Fatah's first terror attack. Not the founding of Fatah, but of Fatah's first act of terrorism.

Reuters and the other wire services all got the basic facts wrong, saying it was the 46th anniversary of Fatah's creation - even though Fatah was founded around 1957.

And the Palestinian Arabs have been celebrating the terror anniversary all over.

In Tyre:

In Nahr al-Barad:
And other Lebanese camps celebrated as well (Shatila, Daouk, Mar Elias, Burj al-Barajneh.)

In Toura:

Not to mention, of course, Ramallah:
In Ramallah, Fatah Central Committee member Mahmoud Aloul 'Odona said

Today we light the torch to launch the activities commemorating the anniversary of the revolution, of dignity, and of the Palestinian armed struggle.

Remember the anniversary of the launch of the Revolution-makers who have sacrificed their blood and their lives to gain the rights of the Palestinian people, and all those who are here today are students of those leaders.

We will fight with all we have, to realize the dreams of our martyrs establishing an independent Palestinian state
