Female terrorist murderer joins teachers, journalists, and politicians as Palestinian role model on International Women’s Day

Official PA TV narrator: “Palestinian women in the State of Palestine constitute 49% of the population, in other words half of the society in the full sense of the words resolve, partnership, and equality… They are the ones defending the dream and the spark of the revolution and struggle. They have also been participating in the crucial self-sacrificing operations in the history of the Palestinian revolution, and likewise more than 15,000 female Palestinian prisoners have entered the occupation’s prisons, alongside the male fighters and self-sacrificing fighters. The Palestinian women are continuing their path, as they are the wives of the Martyrs, prisoners, leaders, and fighters... They are bursting forth nobly from the leading positions, and thus defying the difficulties, overcoming the obstacles, and recording achievements. They are fighting for the sake of humanity… They have even won a $1 million prize as the best teacher and educator in the world.  They have drawn the world’s attention as an awe-inspiring human model and a tremendous vision of providing services... These are the Palestinian women, defeating the occupation… The Palestinian women are courageously and nobly standing on the stage of [human] rights and defending the rights.”
