The following 34-second YouTube clip from Palestinian Media Watch, shows the recent Fatah congress's adulation of Khaled Abu-Usbah, a brutal thug in a group of eleven, led by Dalal Mughrabi that massacred 37 Israelis, including 10 children, on a bus, on 5 March 1978. Remember, these are the "moderates"....

The following excerpt from Time Magazine, 20 March 1978, describes the attack:

Slipping ashore from the Mediterranean on the afternoon of the Sabbath, the terrorists hijacked two buses filled with tourists and sightseers, took them on a wild ride down the road toward Tel Aviv, shooting along the way at everyone in sight, and finally destroyed one bus in an orgy of fire and death.

Official statistics put the dead at 37 (all but a few of them civilians, among them at least 10 children) and 76 wounded—a toll that exceeded the 1972 Munich massacre (11 dead) and the slaughter at a Ma'alot school in 1974 (26).
