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
PA embassy official praises Palestinian mothers of Jihadists at ceremony in UNESCO Palace 
Source: Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Mar. 20, 2014
     “The Fatah movement, the movement’s institutions and Lebanese and Palestinian civil institutions in Lebanon organized a Palestinian-Lebanese heritage exhibit yesterday [March 19, 2014] to celebrate Mothers’ Day at the UNESCO Palace in Beirut…
Advisor for Cultural [Affairs] at the Palestinian Embassy in Lebanon Maher Meshaiel, who represented PA Ambassador [to Lebanon] Ashraf Dabbour at the exhibit opening, said: ‘The Palestinian mother has qualities that set her apart from [other mothers] in the world, for she is the soldier, the fighter and the one who resists, and the hope protecting Palestine’s olive trees. She who was uprooted from her land has turned the nights of despair in the diaspora and exile into days of flowing hope. She has pulled out her gun, parted from her son with a smile and received him as a Martyr (Shahid) with ululations, in order to prevent the enemy from feeling the intoxication of his victory.’
For his part, Mustafa Hamdan, President of the Leadership Council of the Independent Nasserite Movement, or Al-Murabitoun (i.e., a Lebanese political party,) saluted Palestinian mothers and expressed his appreciation of them, calling the Palestinian mother the mother of all the sons of the Arab homeland, and the one who had, since and before 1948, and up to this very day, whenever a commander, fighter or Jihadist was killed, borne 100 children in his place, to become Martyrs for the homeland.”

Lebanese official on PA TV: "The true mother is the land that gave birth to the Martyrs" 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, Mar. 20, 2014
Official PA TV program Palestine This Morning interviewed the director of the social institutions in Beirut, Lebanon, Muhammad Dabdoub, who spoke about Mother’s Day.
The director of the social institutions in Beirut, Muhammad Dabdoub: “The month of March is the month of sacrifice and loyalty. [The anniversary of] the death of sister Dalal Mughrabi as a Martyr (Shahida) is in the month of March; [the [anniversary of] the Battle of Karameh is in [March]; Mother’s Day and International Women’s Day are in [March].”
PA TV host: “And [the month] ends with Land Day.”
The director of the social institutions in Beirut, Muhammad Dabdoub: “And it ends with Land Day. For us, the true mother is the land that gave birth to the Martyrs (Shahids) and gave a great deal. No matter how much we give [the land], we will never [entirely] fulfill our duty to it.”

Note: Dalal Mughrabi - led the most lethal terror attack in Israel’s history, known as the Coastal Road massacre, in 1978, when she and other Fatah terrorists hijacked a bus on Israel's Coastal Highway, killing 37 civilians, 12 of them children, and wounding over 70.
The Karameh battle, or Al-Karameh - In 1968, Israeli army forces attacked the Al-Karameh village in Jordan, where Fatah terrorists were launching attacks on Israel. Arafat used the event for propaganda purposes, declaring the battle a great victory that erased the disgrace of the 1967 Six Day War defeat.
Land Day –an annual commemoration of the general strike and demonstrations organized by Israeli Arab residents of the Galilee on March 30, 1976, to protest the Israeli government's decision to expropriate land in the Galilee for security and settlement purposes, which it later implemented. Israeli Arabs and Palestinians consider it a national day.

General Coordinator of the National Committee for Commemorating Nakba Day, Muhammad Alyan: "Some say, 'Will you commemorate the Nakba (“the catastrophe,” the Palestinian term for the establishment of the State of Israel) through songs?' I say to anyone who speaks this way: Martyrs fall among us and [their] mothers ululate with joy over the blood that flows on this good land. When a Martyr falls we chant slogans.

Mother of suicide bomber says she's proud, hopes more girls will follow in her daughter's footsteps

Picture posted on Fatah's Facebook page with the following description:
     "This is Wafa Idris, 23 years old, who left her family, her mother and her brothers, and said to them that day: 'The situation is grave. One might die as a Martyr (Shahid) at any moment.'
Wafa was late in returning, and night fell. Her family began to look for her, and asked some of her girlfriends who said that she had said goodbye to them, and that she had asked them to pray, saying: 'I will do a deed that will make you proud,' but she did not explain what that deed would be...
Wafa's mother said that when she heard on the media that it could have been a woman who carried out the Martyrdom-seeking operation in Jerusalem and [Wafa] hadn't come back, she thought that this could be the only explanation for her being missing. She added that she is a hero, and said, 'My daughter is a Martyr (Shahida).’ ...
At least 2,000 Palestinians participated in the symbolic funeral of the first female Martyrdom-seeker who blew herself up in Israel... The coffin was draped in the Palestinian flag and posters of Wafa Idris were put on the walls of the streets in the refugee camp. Participants called 'Wafa is a hero' while armed men fired in the air to salute Wafa.
Wafa's mother said that she is proud of her daughter, and hopes that more girls will follow in her footsteps. Wafa - the beautiful flower who, through her Martyrdom-seeking operation, turned upside down Israeli security considerations that had focused on observing young Palestinian men only."

Interviewee: "When he died as a Martyr, we had a feeling of pain and separation along with pride, but after 9 years I think that we feel only pride."

Note: The Cemeteries for Enemy Casualties are two burial sites maintained by the Israeli army for burying the bodies of enemy soldiers as well as terrorists. They are fenced and well-marked. Graves have markers instead of gravestones. Burial is temporary, on the assumption that the bodies will eventually be returned to their countries of origin. No ceremony is held. The bodies are buried in numbered caskets, after their identities have been documented.

She sent her four sons, her flesh and blood, into battle, to Qadisiyah [near Iraq] as a service to this religion. When she heard that they had attained Shahadah (Martyrdom for Allah), she said, ‘Praise Allah, who honored me with their deaths. I pray to Allah that I will join them in Paradise...’
