Mothers celebrate sons' Martyrdom as "wedding"

Mothers of suicide terrorist: "we give out sweets" to celebrate the wedding
PA TV host:
"They [Israelis] accuse the Palestinian mother of hating her sons and encouraging them to die."
Mother ofterrorist:"We don't encourage our sons to die. We encourage them to Shahada [Martyrdom] for the homeland, for Allah... We don't say to mothers of the Shahids [Martyrs]: 'We come to comfort you.'
Rather [we say]: 'We come to bless you on your son's wedding.'
We give out drinks, we give out sweets. Our 'mourning visit' has the joy of a wedding."
