Mother of suicide bomber: "When notified [of my son's death] I restrained myself, and said: 'Praise Allah.' I kissed him everywhere, and said: 'Praise Allah.' I cried out in joy and said: 'Praise Allah, he is a Shahid (Martyr) Shahid, Shahid. He asked for Martyrdom.' Once he joked with me: 'Mother, I want to get married.' I answered: 'Praise Allah.'
