http://www.palwatch.org/main.aspx?fi=... A Palestinian mother is interviewed on the official Palestinian Authority television station. The TV host states that a mother of a Martyr makes a sound of joy when her child dies, but not because she doesnt love him. He asks the mother of a Martyr on the show if she made a sound of joy. The mother responds that she did because all mothers want their son to reach Martyrdom. The mother wanted the best for her son and Martyrdom was the best for him. She says that Martyrdom did not only bestow honor upon her son, but also pride and honor for the entire family. PA TV (Fatah), Nov. 23, 2003.
TV host: A mother of a Shahid (Martyr) parts from her son with sounds of joy, not because she doesnt love him. Did you make sounds of joy? Mother of Martyr: Yes I did. A mother makes sounds of joy because she wants him to reach Shahada (Matyrdom). [My son] became a Shahid for Allah. I wanted the best for him. This is the best for my son. When he was martyred, [honor] was not only for him, but also for us, pride and honor for us. People started saying: This is a Shahids brother, This is a Shahids mother, This is a Shahids sister. The honor was for the whole family, not just for [my son].
