Headline: “38 (sic., 39) years since Ali Hassan Salameh’s death as a Martyr”

“On Monday, Jan. 22, 1979, at precisely 3:37 p.m., a strong explosion shook Beirut. The target was the senior Palestinian official Ali Hassan Salameh (i.e., a commander of the Black September terror organization).
Salameh died as a Martyr (Shahid) together with four of his guards, and this was after then occupation [Israeli] Prime Minister Golda Meir said: ‘Find this animal and kill him (sic., PMW could find no record of such a quote)!’

In 1970, he commanded special operations against the Israeli intelligence throughout the world from Lebanon. His name was linked to many quality operations, such as sending the explosive packages from Amsterdam to many Mossad (i.e., Israeli Secret Intelligence Service) agents in Europe… and the Munich operation (i.e., the Munich Olympics massacre), which was carried out by the Black September organization, which kidnapped several Israeli athletes and killed several of them. Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir called him ‘the Red Prince’ (sic., PMW could find no record of Meir giving terrorist Salameh this nickname).”
