The mother of a Hamas suicide terrorist states on official Palestinian Authority television that she praised Allah when she heard that her son died as a Shahid (i.e., Martyr for Allah). She explains that her son wanted to get married, but that he also wanted Shahada (Martyrdom). She says that he achieved both because he believed that 72 Dark-Eyed Maidens would be waiting for him. This refers to the Islamic belief that every Martyr is a groom and will marry 72 virgins in Paradise upon their death.
Transcript: Mother of Hamas terrorist: "When notified [of my son's death] I restrained myself, and said: 'Praise Allah.' I kissed him everywhere, and said: 'Praise Allah.' I cried out in joy and said: 'Praise Allah, he is a Shahid (Martyr) Shahid, Shahid. He asked for Martyrdom.' Once he joked with me: 'Mother, I want to get married.' I answered: 'Praise Allah.' Then he said: 'And Shahada (Death for Allah).' I said: 'How do you plan to marry?' He answered: '72 Dark-Eyed [Maidens] are waiting for me.'" [PA TV (Fatah), July 11, 2004]
