Gaza set to welcome a famous terrorist

Leila Khaled, one of the most notorious terrorists from the early days of Palestinian Arab nationalism, is set to visit Gaza tomorrow.

Khaled was involved in the hijacking of TWA Flight 840 on its way from Rome to Athens in 1969, diverting the Boeing 707 to Damascus and then blowing up the plane after the passengers had been taken off. She also attempted to hijack El Al Flight 219 from Amsterdam to New York City in 1970 as part of the Dawson's Field hijackings, carried out by the PFLP, but she was foiled and ended up in a British prison for less than a month, as the British gave her up in a PFLP prisoner exchange.

Israel-haters have latched on to her iconic image, romanticizing her violence (she was caught carrying two hand grenades and her partner shot a member of the flight crew.)

The unrepentant terrorist will arrive from Jordan and enter through Egypt. She will be honored at a number of ceremonies by the PFLP and other terror groups in Gaza.

A match made in hell.
