Belgian funded PA school still named after terrorist mass murderer

Via Palestinian Media Watch:
PA ignores Belgian demands to change name, yet Belgian funding of the PA continues unabated By Maurice Hirsch, Adv. and Itamar Marcus

on The Palestinian school built with Belgian funding is still named after terrorist mass murderer, Dalal Mughrabi, who led the 1978 bus hijacking and murder of 37 Israelis including 12 children.

On Sept. 27, 2017, Palestinian Media Watch released a report documenting 31 Palestinian Authority schools named after terrorists, one of which PMW is certain was built by the Belgium government.

Text on plaque: "Through a fund from the Government of the Kingdom of Belgium and through the Belgian Development Agency BTC, constructed and furnished, Beit Awaa Basic Girls School"[Facebook page of Dalal Mughrabi Elementary School, (accessed Sept. 18, 2017)
Shortly after PMW's original report was published, Belgian authorities condemned the naming of the school built with its funding after the terrorist and announced it "will not allow itself to be associated with the names of terrorists in any way." [The Algemeiner, Oct. 7, 2017]  
PMW has now discovered that the PA has defied Belgium, and the school continues to be named Martyr Dalal Mughrabi Elementary School. PMW has confirmed this after the official PA daily published a story announcing the "launch of activities of the outstanding athletic clubs," hosted by none other than the Dalal Mughrabi School in Southern Hebron.  
PMW examined the pictures from the event and noted that the same plaque thanking Belgium for funding the school named after the terrorist mass murderer can be seen in the pictures from the recent event.
