This clip from Hamas TV glorifies death as greater than life and motivates Palestinians to seek death in violent confrontations with Israel. Fathi Hammad, Hamas member of Palestinian Parliament (Legislative Council), extols Palestinians for turning death into an "industry" and for using themselves as human shields to fight Israel. He ends with the following message to the "Zionist enemy": "We desire Death as you desire Life."
Transcript: Member of Hamas's Legislative Council, Fathi Hamad: "For the Palestinian people death became an industry at which women excel and so do all people on this land: the elderly excel, the Jihad fighters excel, and the children excel. Accordingly [Palestinians] created a human shield of women, children, the elderly and the Jihad fighters against the Zionist bombing machine, as if they were saying to the Zionist enemy: We desire Death, as you desire Life." [Al-Aqsa TV (Hamas), Feb. 29, 2008]
