Mother of terrorist responsible for the murder of 12: "Nobody understands the suffering we go through"

Al-Quds, Palestinian daily  |
Headline: "Mother of prisoner Ahmed Barghouti: We await the day in which our heroes will be released and will overcome the chains"
"'I am ready to withstand all the suffering and difficulties, and even to die, in order to see him and to be updated about his condition, until my wish is granted and we will see him free and without handcuffs.' With these words the mother in her seventies, Um Mustafa, began her interview with Al-Quds, and thus expressed the extent to which she was affected and saddened by the Red Cross' decision to reduce the prisoner visits to once a month… She added: 'Nobody understands the suffering we go through in the journey of torture and punishment at the prison gates, except for us the families. We are the ones who feel the absence of our children, and we alone are the ones suffering from every moment that they are not with us. We hope that the moment will come that we are forever rid of the occupation, its injustice, and its control of our lives, and we wish for the freedom of our heroes, who will undoubtedly overcome the chains.'"
