Reem Riyashi, Hamas suicide terrorist: "I am the Martyr Reem Saleh Riyashi, I hoped that the shredded limbs of my body would be shrapnel, tearing Zionists to pieces, knocking on heaven's door with the skulls of Zionists. How often I spoke to my soul: "Oh soul, if you loathe the Zionists, enemies of my religion, my blood shall be my path to heaven." Since 8th grade I have striven, seeking people daily to guide [me], listen, and help me. How often I desired to carry out a Martyrdom-seeking [suicide] operation inside Israel, and with perseverance, and with Allah's grace, my wish has been fulfilled."

Note: This video was shown on Hamas's website from 2004 to 2009. Reem Riyashi carried out a suicide bombing at the Erez crossing in Gaza on Jan. 14, 2004. Three soldiers and one civilian were killed in her attack. She was the first female suicide bomber that had children.
