Mother of Martyr welcomes son’s death, Palestinian TV (Fatah) February 11, 2010.
PA TV news report:
Mother upon news of son’s death in an IDF airstrike: “We had always hoped for his [my son’s] Martyrdom (Shahada), knowing he wanted to die as a Martyr (Shahid). Every time he went out, we would say to him, ‘May Allah be with you.’ We knew that he wanted to die as a Martyr. Praise to Allah, he sought Martyrdom, and he achieved it. My message to every mother is to sacrifice her child for Palestine.
Another woman: “By Allah, we welcome every Martyr as if he were a groom among us.”
