PA District Governor glorifies martyrdom: "Our child Martyrs... are birds in Paradise”

Headline: "Mother of Martyr Hattab dreamed about a bird that told her of her Martyr son's success"
       "Ramallah and El-Bireh District Governor Dr. Laila Ghannam expressed her pride over our generations that are loyal to the path, and wished success to all of the high school graduates. However, today [July 12, 2017] she preferred to visit the families of the child Martyrs (Shahids) who were supposed to take the high school matriculation exams this year - but the occupier's bullets separated them from their future and they were targeted in cold blood. Among these families was the family of the young Martyr Muhammad Hattab (i.e., terrorist, threw Molotov cocktails at Israeli civilians), 17, from the Jalazone refugee camp, who is called Abu Saleh, who ascended [to Heaven] as a Martyr this past March and joined a row of child Martyrs who were targeted by the occupation without any hindrance or deterrent.
(Note: The following paragraph appeared in the official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida)
District Governor Ghannam visited the family of Martyr Abu Saleh today and noted that their son achieved the highest Martyrdom (i.e., word play, the Arabic word also means certificate as in matriculation certificate), and that the hearts of all the members of our people are turned towards their family and all of the families of the Martyrs, whose futures were stolen from them as a result of the occupation's actions, violence, and crimes.
District Governor Ghannam gave [the family] a statuette of a bird and emphasized that our child Martyrs, Allah willing, are birds in Paradise. Parallel to this, last night the Martyr's mother dreamed of a bird that appeared on the horizon and told her about the results of her son, who was meant to be among those that excelled in the high school matriculation exams this year."
