An excerpt of the interview shown in the video:

Mother of terrorist Ahmed Nasr Jarrar: "Praise Allah, praise Allah, praise God for every situation. Praise God, may Allah take revenge on them and their assistants; may Allah take revenge on them and their assistants."
Reporter: "There is a picture that was published, did you see it?
Mother: "Yes, first thing in the morning they said to me: ‘Is this your son or not your son?’ I said that it looks like a scarf, not a beard. His beard is blond, but apparently he put on a scarf, poor thing. In other words, praise Allah, praise Allah. Our God honored him, praise Allah, praise Allah. Allah chose him [to be] among the Martyrs (Shahids), praise Allah. Praise Allah, our God chose him, praise Allah."
Reporter: "Have you seen his personal belongings?
Mother: "Yes, they brought his pants and shirt. The coat does not look like his, but I recognized his shirt and the pants."
Reporter: "And there was also a Quran."
Mother: "Yes, a Quran. His father gave him the Quran when he was little… and he would carry it in his pocket. It was perforated by the shots he took to the chest, poor thing. May Allah have mercy on him and forgive him. How religious he was, and how he aroused pride. He is the son of all of Palestine, not just my son. Knock on wood, he shook the whole [Zionist] entity. Praise Allah, praise Allah, praise Allah, praise Allah. Patience is beautiful and our assistance is from Allah. Praise Allah for every situation, praise Allah."
Reporter: "Very good."
