"Allah did not honor me with [Shahada]; He gave it to my sister"

"The fighter Rashida Mughrabi [who came to Bethlehem for the Sixth Fatah Conference], sister of the Martyrdom-seeker Dalal, who died as a Martyr in 1978 … says: 'When I was ten years old, I joined the ranks of the Palestinian revolution in the camps in Lebanon… Afterwards I moved on to the Presidential Guard and I participated in many battles. I always aspired to Shahada (Martyrdom), but Allah did not honor me with it; He gave it to my sister, who was a year younger than me.'"

Note: Dalal Mughrabi led the most lethal terror attack in Israel’s history in 1978, when she and other terrorists hijacked a bus and killed 37 civilians, 12 of them children.
