Dead teen terrorist told his mom every Friday: “I crave Martyrdom”

Mother of terrorist Muhammad Abu Zirr: “The child [Muhammad Abu Zirr] would tell me every Friday: ‘Mom, I crave Martyrdom.’ He wants to be a Martyr. Every Friday he would shower and come down [and say]: ‘I want to go with the young people and die as a Martyr.’ He would watch the events in the Gaza Strip … He would watch these massacres, and his blood boiled. He told me: ‘I want to die as a Martyr and take revenge for what is happening.’ We are no better than them [the people of Gaza.] We want to do as they are doing. We want to defend our homeland… Praise Allah, he asked [for Martyrdom] and received it,”
