Palestinian mothers, including mother of 5 terrorists, raised “sacrificing heroes and torches of freedom that have lit the skies of Palestine,” and “educated” their sons to carry out “heroic acts”

Headline: "The Lod charity organization honored the mothers of the Martyrs and prisoners on Mother's Day"
      "Commissioner of Public Activities in the [PLO] Political and National Guidance Authority Nasser Nimr Ayyad expressed his pride in the Palestinian mothers, the mothers of the Martyrs (Shahids), prisoners, and wounded - the same mothers who have held on, suffered patiently, struggled, and given birth to and educated generations of defiance, resolve, and heroic acts, and also the generations of knowledge, excellence, and creativity. This is because they are the ones who are creating the generations and are the main symbol of resolve on the path of the Palestinian people and its struggle to achieve its freedom and independence.
These statements were made during a ceremony held by the national Lod [charity] organization at its headquarters in Ramallah as a sign of honor for the mothers of the Martyrs, prisoners, and wounded for Mother's Day, including Um Yusuf, known as Um Nasser Abu Hmeid (i.e., mother of 5 terrorists, four of them prisoners and one dead), a resident of the Al-Amari refugee camp. Um Yusuf is the mother of Martyr Abd Al-Mun'im (see descriptions of the sons' crimes below -Ed.), and the mother of four prisoners serving life sentences: Nasser, serving 7 life sentences and an additional 50 years; Nasr, serving 5 life sentences; Sharif, serving 4 life sentences; and Muhammad, serving 2 life sentences and an additional 30 years.
The commissioner of public activities added that honoring these sacrificing mothers constitutes a message of loyalty to them as part of this day, and also emphasis on the part of the organization and our people in its entirety that we place the mothers of the Martyrs, prisoners, and wounded as crowns on our heads. He also emphasized that the Palestinian mothers, who have brought up their sons on love of the homeland and belonging, are the first who have preserved the national memory and sown the loftiest examples of investment and sacrifice in the hearts of the sons, who have become sacrificing heroes and torches of freedom that have lit the skies of Palestine and praised its name before the entire universe.
Ayyad concluded his statements by emphasizing before the lauded mothers that their sacrifice will win us a free homeland, and that we will soon hold a tribute celebration for them in the plazas of liberated Jerusalem and the Al-Aqsa Mosque and in the capital of the free and independent State of Palestine."
