Kids shown video of their mother's suicide bombing death on Hamas TV

Al-Aqsa TV, Hamas  |

The Hamas TV children's program Tomorrow's Pioneers produced a special broadcast in which the two young children of a female suicide terrorist were invited to the TV studio to watch a video re-enactment of their mother's suicide bombing. The terrorist, Reem Riyashi, killed four Israelis in a suicide bombing in 2004. Saraa, the child hostess ends by saying: “we will continue in the footsteps.”


TV Host: "[Our guests are] the children of the Shahida [Martyr] Reem Riyashi."
The video is shown:] "Mommy, what are you carrying in your arms instead of me? A toy or a present for me? 
[Visual: Mother prepares bomb, hiding bomb]
Are you going out, Mommy? Come back quickly, Mommy.
[Girl sees TV news about her mother's bombing]
Instead of me you carried a bomb in your hands. Now, I know what was more precious than us.
My love [for Muhammad] will not be [only] words. [Picks up explosives in mother's drawer]
I am following Mommy in her steps! My mother! My mother!" [Girl looks at bomb in her hand]
TV Host:
"These are the children of the Shahida [Martyr], the heroic Jihad fighter who sacrificed all that she had for her homeland. She cared less about her own flesh and blood, and for their sake, she sacrificed [herself] for Allah. We say to the occupier, that we will continue in the footsteps of the Shahida [Martyr], the Jihad fighter Reem Riyashi, until we liberate our homeland from your hands, usurper."
