PA daily: Terrorist is “Martyr” who “was ‎accompanied to his wedding”‎

Headline: “Martyr Skafi was accompanied ‎to his wedding (i.e., to the Dark-Eyed ‎Virgins of the Islamic Paradise) two days ‎before his engagement”‎
     ‎“Last night’s hours passed by slowly for ‎the mother of Martyr (Shahid) Ibrahim ‎Samir Skafi, 22, and for the first time she ‎wanted to sleep but was unable to, as her ‎tears were flowing… and the fire in her ‎heart flared up for the loss of her joy and ‎her source of support, Ibrahim.‎
The family and neighborhood women ‎gathered around the mother of Martyr ‎Ibrahim and his only sister, trying to ease ‎the tragedy of the moment of the last ‎farewell.‎
The Martyr’s mother cried with the ‎intensity of her earlier joy for the ‎engagement of her firstborn son Ibrahim, ‎which was supposed to be celebrated on ‎Saturday, but the occupation’s bullets ‎hurried to him and snatched him from his ‎mother, his fiancée and all those who ‎loved him.‎ The women received Ibrahim’s [body] with ‎cries of joy, but the Martyr’s mother, whose ‎legs could not carry her, extended her ‎arms in order to hug her son, as she ‎whispered: ‘The groom has arrived, my ‎darling has arrived…’‎
The Martyr’s uncle responded to the ‎events: ‘Ibrahim watered the soil of ‎Hebron with his blood, and he is a Martyr ‎who sacrificed himself for Jerusalem and ‎the Al-Aqsa Mosque. He was like a brother ‎to us, and everyone who knew him and ‎knew his character and nobility loved him. ‎The pain of parting from him will be hard ‎to forget, and the sorrow over his ‎departure is stronger than any word.’‎
The Martyr’s father, who shed timid tears ‎for the youth of his son who was snatched ‎from him with a pull of a trigger, took a ‎place above [Ibrahim’s] head a short while ‎before the prayer [for his soul], so that he ‎and his sons could recite verses of the ‎Quran.”‎

Ibrahim Samir Skafi – 23-year-old ‎Palestinian terrorist who rammed his car ‎into 3 border policemen at the Halhoul ‎junction near Hebron on Nov. 4, 2015, ‎wounding them.
