Terrorist’s sister about dead terrorists: “Allah honored them with this Martyrdom… the homeland’s ground, for which they sacrificed their pure blood, now warms them”
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, Jan. 2, 2016
Official PA TV reporter: “The procession began after the prayer for the Martyrs’ (Shahids’) souls in the Al-Hussein Mosque, which took place at the same time as the announcement of mourning and a strike of all the city’s public institutions. It proceeded through the streets and ended at the Al-Shuhada cemetery (i.e., the Martyrs’ cemetery) in the Al-Sheikh neighborhood, where the Martyrs were buried amid calls of the participants who accompanied the Martyrs in a funeral befitting their sacrifice and status.”
Terrorist stabber Abd Al-Rahman Maswadeh’s sister: “Allah honored them with this Martyrdom. We received their bodies and felt relieved, because the homeland’s ground, for which they sacrificed their pure blood, now warms them and is befitting of them . For of course the honoring of the dead is his burial. Praise Allah Master of the Worlds , I bless all of the Martyrs’ families. They received their sons and were relieved by their bodies [being transferred].”
Official PA TV reporter: “After the occupation authorities held [the Martyrs’ bodies] in refrigerators and freezers for a number of days, they were returned in a national wedding (i.e., Martyr's funeral, considered wedding to the 72 Virgins in Paradise according to Islam) to the warm ground for which they fell, and which they protected.”

Muhaisen saluted the soul of Martyr Muhannad Halabi, who detonated the Jerusalem Intifada, and emphasized that it is a revolution against the criminal occupation, which is supported by the fascist American administration. He said: ‘Maybe we do not have planes or tanks, but we have willpower that can defeat the occupation and achieve victory,’ and added: ‘It is the right of our young men to cause Israeli women to cry like our women are crying, even though our women make sounds of joy after their sons’ and husbands’ deaths as Martyrs.’"

Terrorist Muhannad Halabi, 19, killed 2 Israelis, Rabbi Nehemiah Lavi and Aharon Bennett, and injured Bennett’s wife, Adele, and their 2-year-old son in a stabbing attack in the Old City of Jerusalem on Oct. 3, 2015. Following the attack, he was shot and killed by Israeli police. Prior to his attack, in a post to his private Facebook page, the terrorist referred to recent terror attacks as part of a "third Intifada,” and said that it was a response to Israel’s actions at the Al-Aqsa Mosque and that the Palestinian people would not “succumb to humiliation.” This is a reference to the PA libel that Israel is plotting to take over and destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque and to the PA's portrayal of Jews praying on the Temple Mount as "an invasion of the Al-Aqsa Mosque."

Mother eulogizes terrorist son who rammed car into 5 Israelis

Headline: “Martyr Shahin – when blood flowed the strawberries had not yet ripened”
     “All words are meaningless in the face of a mother speaking of the last moments of her Martyr (Shahid) son, especially this time, when the Martyr is the ‘King of the Strawberries!’ And especially in light of the fact that he exchanged the path of the Nablus market for the path of Martyrdom. Suleiman Shahin, 22, from El-Bireh, separated from his family and friends on his special path, and left in their hands first and foremost the responsibility for Palestine, ‘his daughter and his homeland!’
The Martyr’s mother did not stop crying during the interview with the Wattan news agency, and talked of the plans of her son Suleiman, the most beloved to her of her 9 children, 5 daughters and 4 sons, as he did not at all make light of her tears and moments of sorrow, and would not leave for work without her consent.
She says: ‘When Muhannad Halabi died as a Martyr (i.e., murderer of 2), he [Suleiman] asked me why the Martyrs’ mothers cry out in joy at their sons’ funerals. I could not find an answer for him, and afterwards he continued: ‘Will you cry out in joy when I die as a Martyr?’
Martyr Shahin’s mother emphasized that Suleiman often put the care for his daughter Palestine, who was not yet seven months old, in her hands, and always told her that he wanted her [Palestine] to be educated, upright, and religious… Like every groom on his wedding day (i.e., here this refers to day of “Martyrdom”), Martyr Suleiman insisted on shaving his hair, making peace with his friends, and asking after his sister. And the news of his death as a Martyr shocked his childhood friends, who heard the news through the media like everyone else."

PA daily article criticizes parents celebrating their child`s Martyrdom, but still admires those who "confront the occupation"
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Oct. 19, 2015
     "There is an argument and debate that comes to the surface regarding what is called 'the rush to death for nothing,' in a way that negatively influences the contempt for life and blood in terms of the Palestinians in the confrontations with the occupation. The Israeli system tried to deny this, using ululations (i.e., sounds of joy) or smiles of Martyrs’ mothers in their daily parting from the convoys of Martyrs. But the truth is not like this, and the victim is murdered twice – once by the occupation, and the second time by the description of the Martyr's family as happy he is leaving, which is contrary to logic. …
Through ‘the Cactus Uprising’ or 'the Rage of Jerusalem,' the Palestinian has clearly demonstrated today that he is not afraid of the occupation when he confronts it with a slingshot or knife, and knows in advance what weapon the occupation prepares for him, and with what helmets it protects itself. However, the fear has left his heart, and he prefers to die in honor rather than live a life of daily humiliation at a checkpoint, while he watches how they defile the holy sites and allow the herds of settlers to trample them and do as they wish, under the protection and auspices of the [Israeli] army.
And the question remains, how is the Palestinian, who is full of humanity, sacrifice, and desire to remain [on his land], perceived so wrongly? Who is responsible for this coarse description, and why do we insist on hiding the Martyrs’ dreams and the pain of Martyrs’ families from our story, and insist on showing blood as cheap, or the desire to die for the land, as if the only possibility is that we will die or the land will be freed?"

This is most difficult, even though death is an established fact in this life... Let us allow the families of the Martyrs to cry when they need to, and we will hear the stories of those they lost with no interference and at the right time, without visiting them. Let us treat them gently, because what we are asking them to speak about is a person who has left and will never return, and this is a mental wound from which it takes time to heal.
