Palestinian psychologist: Female terrorist hijackers and murderers carried out “wonderful acts of heroism”

Official PA TV program Our Ethics on the subject of Palestinian women, the program hosts the Mufti of the PA Security Forces Muhammad Salah and female psychologist Jultan Hijazi.

Hijazi describes the development of the role of Palestinian women -Ed.

Female psychologist Jultan Hijazi: "After 1967, the role of women evolved from an institutional stage to a stage of struggle and self-sacrifice. We saw many examples of this, such as Laila Khaled (i.e., participated in 2 plane hijackings), Dalal Mughrabi (i.e., led murder of 37), and Fatima Barnawi (i.e., placed bomb in cinema) who was the first female Palestinian prisoner."
Mufti of the PA Security Forces Muhammad Salah: "In '67, and afterwards in '69."
Jultan Hijazi: "These women, through their operations, recorded wonderful acts of heroism that the generations still see as an example. Afterwards we saw the role of the Palestinian women in the first Intifada (i.e., Palestinian wave of violence and terror against Israel, 1987-1993) and the second Intifada (i.e., PA terror campaign 2000-2005) and the other events…
The women also had a role in the Al-Aqsa Intifada in 2015 (i.e., terror wave, 2015-2016), and we saw how women attacked the Israeli soldiers at checkpoints in stabbing operations, and were partners [in the struggle] alongside the men. In the latest events at the Al-Aqsa Mosque (i.e., refers to unrest after Israel installed metal detectors and cameras at the Mosque following an attack there) the women of Jerusalem recorded [in the annals of history]-"
Official PA TV host: "The Murabitin (i.e., those carrying out Ribat, religious conflict/war to protect land claimed to be Islamic)."
Jultan Hijazi: "They recorded [in the annals of history] the most wonderful exemplary acts in the field of resolve and challenge… I want to mention the mother of Martyr Muhammad Farahat (i.e., murdered 5), a Martyr from Gaza. In 2002, I think, she led him to the gate of the Israeli settlement where he carried out a military operation and killed several soldiers (sic., murdered 5 students), according to what I remember. This mother is the best example of what you are talking about. She led him to the gate of the settlement. As a mother, I am incapable of doing what she did, but she constitutes an example for the struggle and she succeeded in strengthening the national values and the value of sacrifice and participation in the revolutionary activity against the Israeli occupier. Women carry out a large role in the children's psychological preparation."
PA TV host: "Women can raise the morale [of their sons], and they can break their spirits. They can tell them: ‘Do not go out at night, do not go down to the street.’"
