A mother on official Palestinian Authority television expresses pride for her ‎son who died as a Shahid (Martyr) in an IDF airstrike. Her message to ‎Palestinian mothers is that all mothers should sacrifice their children for ‎‎“Palestine.” A second woman adds that every Martyr is a “groom,” in ‎reference to the Islamic belief that Martyrs marry 72 virgins in Paradise upon ‎their death. This is an example of Palestinian Authority glorification of ‎Martyrdom death.‎

Transcript of 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."‎
