Palestinian kindergarten class performs play called "The Martyr's Wedding"

“‘The Bird of Paradise’ kindergarten held a nice graduation party… The ceremony included beautiful performances… one of the most outstanding was a play from the story of Little Red Riding Hood, and another performance named ‘The Martyr’s (Shahid’s) Wedding’, delighted the audience by the role-play of the children, whose acting depicted the reality of roadblocks, children, occupation soldiers, and the children’s death as Martyrs. This charm caused the audience to cry, as the children’s performance was accompanied by the playing of nationalistic songs.”

Note: Palestinians use the term ”wedding” about the death and funeral of Martyrs since they are seen as on their way to marry the virgins of Paradise.
