During an interview on official Palestinian Authority TV, the mother of imprisoned terrorist Sa’id Musa Shtayyeh who provided arms to terrorists who murdered 2, expressed her pride in her son, stating that he, and others like him, were raised on “the milk of heroism”:

Mother of prisoner Sa’id Shtayyeh: “I’m the mother of prisoner Sa’id Shtayyeh (i.e., terrorist, involved in murder of 2), who was sentenced to 2 life sentences and 15 years… I just tell him: “We nursed [all of] you with the milk of heroism, pride, and sacrifice. You are heroes, be proud!”

Such statements from Palestinian parents of terrorists – be they imprisoned or so-called “Martyrs” - are not unusual. Palestinian Media Watch has documented numerous statements by proud parents who say their terrorist sons and daughters “honored” them with their actions.

Not only the parents are content with their children’s terror, so is the PA and it shows its appreciation by rewarding imprisoned terrorists and murderers with monthly salaries. Terrorist Shtayyeh has since his arrest in August 2002 received 820,600 shekels (US$ 243,613) from the PA in reward.

Sa’id Musa Shtayyeh – Palestinian terrorist and Fatah member who provided the arms to the terrorists who murdered Mordechai and Shlomo Odesser on July 30, 2002 in the West Bank. Shtayyeh is serving 2 life sentences and an additional 17 years.
