Suicide terror & Shahada
Success of Shahada promotion
Parents celebrate children's death
Creating a supportive social environment for terrorists has been a critical factor in the Palestinian Authority's successful promotion of suicide terrorism. To this end, PA policy has been to honor terrorists as Shahids (Martyrs for Allah), and to teach Palestinian mothers to celebrate when their children die as terrorist Shahids. Categorizing these dead terrorists as Shahids grants them the highest honor a Muslim can achieve, and is therefore cause for a mother to celebrate, according to this PA teaching.
An example of that happiness and celebration can be seen in Um Nidal, mother of a suicide terrorist:

Um Nidal is filmed with her son, Muhammad, who is armed and ready to carry out a terror attack:
     "By Allah, today is the best day of my life. I feel that our Lord is pleased with me, because I am offering something [my son] for Him. I wish to sacrifice more [sons] for Allah's forgiveness, and for the flag [of Islam], 'There is no god but Allah', to fly over Palestine.... It's true that there's nothing more precious than children, but for the sake of Allah – what is precious becomes cheap." Click to view video on website

This is the third in a series of articles published on Feb. 13, and Feb. 15, 2016
“After the Friday prayer, Ahmad walked to the cemetery to look for the grave of his Martyr (Shahid) friend Ahmad [Awwad Abu Al-Rub], sat by the grave, recited the [Quranic Sura of] Al-Fatiha, and then left.
This is what happened every Friday since the boy Ahmad Awwad Abu Al-Rub died as a Martyr, after being shot by the occupation at the Al-Jalameh checkpoint, when Ahmad Abu Najah Abu Al-Rub’s heart was bound to his friend, and kept anything that reminded him of him [Ahmad Awwad].
Once, Ahmad returned home and asked one of his sisters if it was possible to grow flowers in special soil in order to lay them on his friend’s grave. The flowers were planted, but when they started to blossom, Ahmad was no longer there to take them to the Martyr’s grave, because he had already joined the Martyrs’ procession…
Since the outbreak of the events of the popular resistance at the beginning of last October [2015] (i.e., euphemism for wave of Palestinian terror attacks, September 2015-April 2016), most of Ahmad’s attention was dedicated to following news channels. Ahmad’s mother told Al-Hayat Al-Jadida that her son ‘became indignant at the events and attacks against the Al-Aqsa [Mosque] and the death of the young and the girls as Martyrs.’
Indeed the separation is hard, and death is hard, as mother of Martyr [Ahmad Najah Abu Al-Rub] told us, but she corrected [herself] and said: ‘Praise Allah, he wanted to die as a Martyr and has obtained Martyrdom (Shahada).’”

“Despite the ‘hard blow’ Israel gave Qabatiya by imposing a curfew on it for four days, [carrying out] arrests, demolishing homes, and revoking work permits, in what seems like an attempt to teach them a ‘lesson,’ it looks like it has failed to dampen the spirit of resistance in the town.
