Fatah Revolutionary Council Member Muhammad Al-Laham praised Fatah terrorist Dalal Al-Mughrabi, who participated in the 1978 Coastal Road massacre in Israel, and "all the martyrs, male and female, who are more honorable than all of us." Speaking on the official Palestinian Authority TV channel on January 1, Al-Laham extolled Ayat Al-Akhras, a member of Fatah's Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades, who carried out a suicide bombing outside a Jerusalem supermarket in 2002, and Abdallah Daoud, who died in Algeria, to where he was deported following the Church of the Nativity siege in 2002.
Muhammad Al-Laham: President Mahmoud Abbas said, on several occasions these past few years: We are staying here. We are not leaving. Under no scenario will we go for another diaspora, as refugees again. This is our land, and we will remain on it. This stage is the era of Ahed Tamimi... From the days of Dalal Al-Mughrabi and all the martyrs, male and female, who are more honorable than all of us... This is an assembly line, which includes my colleague Kifah Harb, who was talking to you from the Balata refugee camp on another screen. She is the sister of heroes and the wife of the martyred Fatah hero Abdallah Daoud, a member of the security forces and an intelligence officer, who was accused by the occupation forces of recruiting male and female martyrdom-seekers, most notably Ayat Al-Akhras, a martyr of Fatah's Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades. They deported him, and ultimately, he was martyred in Algeria. This is the Palestinian people, which has at its disposal all the means and maneuvers to respond to the policy of the occupation.
