Parents of teen terrorists celebrate their deaths: "If I had married him off, I wouldn’t have been as happy as this"

Official PA TV News, on a mass funeral held in Hebron for five terrorists whose bodies were returned by Israel

Father of terrorist Dania Arshid:
“Praise Allah who honored us and honored these good notable people in that [the bodies] came to us from the hands of the tyrannical murderers. Praise Allah, he will give us what we deserve. As long as we are all together and we are all one hand – we have not finished, because we have additional children who still must reach it.”

Father of terrorist Bayan Al-Esseili:
“Praise Allah, Master of the universe. This is kindness from Allah. ‘And ever has the favor of Allah upon you been great’ [Quran, Surah 4:113, Sahih International translation]. Indeed, Almighty Allah honored us in that he gave us the bodies of our daughters for us to accompany them as brides (i.e., it is believed that female ‘Martyrs’ become one of the 72 Virgins to marry male Martyrs in Paradise) in a funeral that is fitting for them, to their final resting place.”…

Mother of terrorist Tareq Al-Natsheh:
“This is pride for us – for Palestine. My son is a Martyr (Shahid), my son is a groom (i.e., Martyr's funeral is considered wedding to the 72 Virgins in Paradise in Islam) Allah willing. [He died as a Martyr] in order to defend the homeland, Jerusalem, and Gaza, all of the Martyrs and the daughters who died as Martyrs. Allah will have mercy on you and will be satisfied with you. If I had married him off, I wouldn’t have been as happy as this, and I wouldn’t have accompanied him at his wedding like this. This is the greatest wedding for us and for all of Palestine. Praise Allah Master of the Universe. Allah will be satisfied with you.”
